Vodafone, which reported a €7.8 billion loss in the six month period to 30th September 2018, primarily due to a loss on the disposal of Vodafone India (following the completion of the merger with Idea Cellular), had 6.7 million fixed broadband and nearly 30 million Mobile customers in Germany in Q2 this year.
