The issue of coverage versus signal quality was addressed this week by the CEO of Vodafone UK, Jeroen Hoencamp.

Vodacom Group, a South Africa-headquartered mobile operator that is 65 per cent owned by Vodafone Group, will deliver a "fatal" blow to competition in its home market if regulators approve an acquisition of Internet service provider Neotel Pty, the country's third largest mobile operator claimed.

Ofcom said Sharon White has been appointed as the new CEO of the UK communications regulator with effect from late March 2015, confirming previous reports.
Telefónica's UK mobile operator O2's customer service was ranked best by consumers quizzed by regulator Ofcom in a regular annual survey, although Virgin Mobile was the only operator to show a year-on-year improvement.

Vodafone signed a global agreement with outdoor advertising company JCDecaux to deploy small cells on street furniture and billboards to further enhance its network performance.
