MTC-Vodafone strikes one million customer milestone in Kuwait
MTC-Vodafone in Kuwait has signed up their one millionth customer. The telecom group has grown its customer base to nearly 2.5 million users across the region.
The announcement comes hot on the heels of an announcement by the Government of Lebanon to award the LibanCell management contract to the MTC Group.
As MTC-Vodafone customer numbers grew from 690,946 in the beginning of 2003 to more than one million by the end of March 2004, the balance between the type of customers shifted with the pre-paid customer continuing to capture a greater slice of the MTC-Vodafone market. MTC-Vodafone’s pre-paid network has expanded by end of March 2004 to serve a total of 705,000 customers, an 82 percent increase over year end 2002 numbers.
MTC-Vodafone in Kuwait now has capacity for 140 percent of the current customer base allowing for 365,000 additional customer growth in the local market. — (menareport.com)
