Vodafone returns to Carphone with 800 new subscription sales in first week
Vodafone has bedded back in at Carphone Warehouse with around 800 new subscriptions sold in the first week of its return.
Mobile also understands that mobile broadband sales have gone up by around 20% at Carphone since Vodafone’s return.
Carphone was upbeat about early Vodafone sales in an internal message to staff, and encouraged staff to keep pushing Vodafone’s contracts.
In addition to the 800 new subscriptions, around 200 Vodafone upgrades were made. The sales figures re-iterate Mobile’s report of last week that initial Vodafone sales were ‘steady’.
One Carphone staffer in the North West said: 'It's great to have Vodafone back in our stores. There was never going to be a massive influx of customers coming in asking for it, but it'll benefit us in the long term.'
