The sale of Vodafone’s stake in Verizon Wireless in February 2014 was hailed as one of the biggest sales of recent years. It gave the UK-based telco cash-rich autonomy to develop its existing interests and invest in new ones. Vodafone has developed its interests in Western European markets, including Germany, Portugal, Spain and Ireland. The company is investing heavily in fibre roll-outs in these key European markets and has just started to launch fibre services in some of them. In the next 5 – 10 years, Vodafone will be in a position to offer fibre services in all of these markets as a result of the joint ventures and acquisitions that have recently taken place.
