Balanced with: VODAFONE is pushing up the price of its broadband with hundreds of thousands of customers set to fork out an extra £30 a year. From December, customers will be paying £2.50 more per month for their home internet when the bill hike kicks in. The price increase will hit both Superfast 1 and Superfast 2 broadband packages taken out before June 30 this year. Existing pay monthly customers currently pay £20 per month for the Superfast 1 package, while the Superfast 2 costs £25.50 per month. This means households will be paying £22.50 for Superfast 1 come December, and £27 for Superfast 2. Vodafone has started contacting customers about the price changes and said those who renew their contract will continue paying the same monthly price as they are now. The company couldn't put an exact figure on the amount of people that will be impacted by the price changes by said it's likely to be hundreds of thousands. The telecoms giant also confirmed it’s hiking prices of international calls, texts outside of Europe and calls to premium rate numbers from November. This applies to pay monthly customers who don't have international calling or texting options as part of a bundle. International rest of world calls will be going up by £1, from £2 to £3 per minute, while international texts are being hiked by 30p, from 35p to 65p. Premium rate and non-geographic calls are being increased by 55p to 65p for access charge. A Vodafone spokesperson said: “To ensure that we can keep delivering the best service to our customers, we are increasing the price of our home broadband packages by a small amount. “We continue to invest in our home broadband service, for example, we have recently introduced Vodafone’s Home Broadband App that lets you pause Wi-Fi and boost or prioritise speeds to devices. “Plus, we offer our Ultimate Broadband Guarantee – the only guarantee in the industry that promises a minimum sync speed to your router or money off until its fixed.” spud

Spud, that's not good news for revenue then? if they are discounting the big spenders will it not have a negative effect on bottom line?

Mobile mammoth, Vodafone, is this week expected to cut its prices with the introduction of a new contract tariff. According to reports, the new tariff has been tried out in some of its retail outlets. Big spenders with Vodafone are expected to be in line for savings of upto 40 per cent. While Vodafone remains quiet on details, speculation centers around the firm’s ongoing battle with churn, an industry reality made all the more painful for Vodafone with the success of T-Mobile’s Flext tariff which has lured more than 800,000 new customers in six months. Flext talks to its customers in terms of pounds spent each month instead of fixed numbers for calls and texts allowing customers to spend their money on whatever mix of minutes, texts, voicemail and picture messaging they want. According to reports, Vodafone is expected to offer a similar, flexible tariff to win back some of the custom it has lost to T-Mobile, Orange and O2. Last week, Vodafone agreed the sale of its 25 per cent stake in Proximus of Belgium for £1.4bn ($2.64bn). Vodafone was not available for immediate comment. spud

https://www.ft.com/content/1b16087e-f0f3-11e9-ad1e-4367d8281195 Vodafone signs flying car deal with EHang in Germany Telecoms group wants to provide a drone management system based on air traffic control Vodafone has signed a deal with a Chinese flying car company as part of its ambition to develop an air traffic control system for drones and aerial taxis.  The British-based telecoms group will supply EHang with sim cards to connect its electric one- or two-seat drones to its network in Germany. “This is a significant step forward in advancing urban air mobility in Europe, with the goal being to create a new traffic ecosystem,” EHang's founder Hu Huazhi told the Financial Times. Mr Hu envisages his drones being used to transport everything from emergency medical materials to commuting passengers. EHang says it has already done “thousands” of test flights in China and other countries, including in Europe, but has not yet done so in Germany. Its tests are most advanced in Guangzhou, the southern Chinese city where the company is headquartered. Vodafone has already held talks with European regulators to develop a drone management system in the style of air traffic control. The telecoms company has carved out a niche in drone technology in recent years as it looks for uses for its 5G technology. Last year, Vodafone unveiled a drone detection system that can protect areas around power stations or airports from rogue devices.  It is also a large player in the automotive market with 22m vehicles connected to its network that sends digitised information to insurance companies and to help track stolen vehicles.  The EHang deal has been signed with Vodafone Germany, based in Düsseldorf, which has become a hub for the group’s technology development. It is supplying 5G connectivity to control the manufacturing lines for the eGo driverless car factory in Aachen.  More companies are developing passenger drones to fight for a slice of a potential huge market for flying taxis. Bristol-based company Vertical Aerospace this week revealed that it had completed a test flight of its Seraph “vertical take off and landing” vehicle in Wales while Uber has pledged to spend €20m in France to develop the technology.  It is early days for aerial taxis. Limited trials have taken place but a commercial launch of drone-based vehicles might still be a long way off due to the length of time needed to create a regulatory framework. Vodafone said it would take until 2025 for these aerial vehicles to launch in Germany. Mr Hu said that Vodafone’s deployment of 5G networks will be “a key infrastructure component for the commercial deployment of autonomous aerial vehicles, since it enables take-offs and landings that are precisely controlled within centimetres”.  spud

https://www.ft.com/content/3802f906-ec1b-11e9-a240-3b065ef5fc55 Vodafone puts Germany at heart of grand design to challenge rivals Unitymedia deal shifts UK group’s focus but pressure is on to make strategy work Nic Fildes in Düsseldorf 12 HOURS AGO Hirschburg is one of the stranger assets to be found on Vodafone’s books. The UK telecoms company inherited the gothic 19th-century palace as part of its blockbuster £112bn acquisition of Germany’s Mannesmann at the turn of the millennium. Germany is now driving the future of Vodafone as it digests its €18.4bn acquisition of Unitymedia, the German cable network it bought from Liberty Global alongside three smaller assets in eastern Europe. The deal has cemented the company’s position as the main challenger to Europe’s incumbent telecoms groups, including Deutsche Telekom, Europe’s largest telecoms company. The Unity takeover shifted Vodafone’s centre of gravity to Germany, where its operations generate 30 per cent of group revenue, 35 per cent of earnings and 40 per cent of cash flow. The country is also at the forefront of the company’s technological development in areas including 5G and the internet of things. Nick Read, Vodafone chief executive, said the hard-fought deal had made Germany “the heart of the company”. “Germany is the engine of Europe and the telecoms structure is one of the best. We have a fantastic asset position,” he said last week. Vodafone, still seen as a mobile phone provider by many in its home market, is now Germany’s largest pay-TV company with 14m customers and the second-biggest in Europe, behind Sky. It has a cable network covering 25m German homes that can connect to “gigabit” broadband speeds. In mobile, where it endured a “painful” spectrum auction this year, it was first to launch 5G in Germany and expects to build a network covering 20m people by 2021. Mr Read believes the British company has a “structural advantage unparalleled in Europe” to grow in Germany given its gigabit network and set a path for other Vodafone territories to follow. “Vodafone was a diversified business spread across five large markets but the story is now simpler,” said Polo Tang, head of telecoms research at UBS. “Germany is so big it becomes a focal point for investors.” “The move to bulk up made sense,” Mr Tang added. “European telecoms is a challenged sector with revenue stalling and high levels of capital expenditure. But Germany is seeing growth with a healthy mobile market and an opportunity in broadband.” Mannesmann may be Vodafone’s best-known deal, remembered as a record-breaking takeover that also triggered a record-breaking loss. But it was the 2013 acquisition of Kabel Deutschland for €10.7bn that set Vodafone on a path towards “convergence” — offering broadband, mobile and television services as a block — that now underpins its growth strategy. “The German market has been good for Vodafone and has now become even more important,” said Robert Grindle, an analyst with Deutsche Bank. However, he added that any sustained economic weakness in the country could see “customers shift to lower-price providers”. The pressure is now on the company to make the Unity deal work, having paid a hefty price to complete its German telecoms jigsaw. The pain will initially be felt in job cuts, with €135m of cost savings earmarked. More than 1,000 roles, both at Unity and at Vodafone’s existing operations, are likely to go. The takeover provoked a public fight with Vodafone’s main rival in Europe, with Deutsche Telekom chief executive Tim Höttges arguing that creating a dominant pay-TV company and combining it with a telecoms powerhouse was “very tricky for democracy”. European regulators nonetheless approved the takeover after Vodafone cut a side deal to allow Telefónica Deutschland to use its network to offer broadband to its customers, albeit at a slower rate than Vodafone’s own service. Vodafone also needs to bat away concerns that it could lose an advantage it has inherited in Germany. Local politicians are calling for a rethink of the country’s unusual Nebenkostenprivileg law, which allows landlords to automatically add a cable subscription to a resident’s rent. With many housing associations tied into deals with regional providers, that acts as a deterrent for about 11m consumers to switch providers, locking in a huge amount of profit — as much as half of Unitymedia’s by some estimates. The law has been the subject of heated debate for years, with companies including Deutsche Telekom saying it in effect freezes them out of much of the broadband market. Yet Hannes Ametsreiter, chief executive of Vodafone Germany, is sanguine about the prospects of renewed political pressure. “You will need the commitment and consent of all the federal states. Good luck,” he told the Financial Times, adding that removing the law would result in rising costs. “Do you want to be the politician who is known for a price increase for consumers?” One German telecoms veteran said that even if the law is to change, it would not happen for years and the bigger challenge for Mr Read and Mr Ametsreiter would be driving enough growth to justify the price Vodafone paid for Unity. Mr Read is confident, pointing to £1.5bn of “revenue synergies” from the rapid merger of the two cable companies. Another executive at a rival German telecoms company argues that while the company has positioned itself as the “gigabit provider”, it has been less forward in committing to new network investment. Vodafone Germany, which is at the heart of the group’s technological developments, could also be key to stimulating growth as it increases its small share of the business market. At its Düsseldorf headquarters, workers in an on-site laboratory can control robotic arms at an electric car factory 80km away in Aachen using 5G. Even the car park is wired up to show where the free spaces are, a service it has exported to Lidl supermarkets in Germany and car parks in Malta. spud

I reckon it has to be £s paid and nothing to do with yield - the top two are the biggest in capital terms so a company like IMB which is 8x smaller than HSBA but basically double the yield isn't mentioned.

AJB is that by total amount or percentage? For example some of the builders have paid out close to 13% annually over the last 5 years.
