About Vodafone

Vodafone is one of the world’s largest telecoms operators.

Since making the first ever mobile call in the UK on 1 January 1985, we’ve come a long way. Today, more than 449 million customers around the world choose us to look after their communications needs. In 30 years, a small mobile operator has grown into a global business and one of the most valuable brands in the world. We now operate in around 30 countries and partner with networks in 55 more.


Our commitment to the community in which we operate extends beyond the products and services we offer. The cornerstone of our commitment to global social investment is the Vodafone Group Foundation. Funded by annual contributions from the Vodafone Group, the Foundation and its network of 27 country foundations supports the community involvement activities of Vodafon  and funds selected global initiatives directly.
