South African telecoms operator Vodacom on Wednesday posted third-quarter revenue of 19.99 billion rand ($1.76 billion), down 1.1 percent from a year earlier, partly due to a drop in the charge customers pay to call other networks. The unit of Britain’s Vodafone Plc did, however, add 9 percent more customers to 61.1 million users, in the three months to end December 2014, the company said. REUTERS/Siphiwe Sibeko
