Dude, where's your 3G?
I don't know how widely picked up this has been, because I am way behind in my reading, but my colleague covering mobile noted yesterday with some surprise that Vodafone's December KPIs show an increase of 3G data cards to 170k worldwide. The company was already at 100k in June, so growth has averaged a little over 10k per month worldwide in H2 2004. 170k users spread over total client base of 150m is penetration of a cool 0.1%, on a product which was introduced nearly one year ago. Ouch.
