Vodacom revenue may take a knock

VODACOM's financial performance will take a knock as a result of the Regulation of Interception of Communications and Provision of Communication-Related Information Act, analysts say.

Vodacom announces its interim results today, its first full six months apart from Telkom.

Analysts predict that the leading mobile operator will take a knock in subscriber numbers and revenue because of the act (Rica), which MTN cited as a contributor to its fall in subscriber numbers.

MTN has lost almost 5percent or 750 000 of its subscribers in South Africa between June and September. - Zweli Mokgata
