Vodafone Greece claims femtocell service helps slash churn

Tools

Within 11 months of being launched, Vodafone Greece claims that its femtocell service has achieved the objective detailed in its original five-year business plan. The key benefit, according to Vodafone Greece, is customer retention. A company survey found that once users had a femtocell, their propensity to churn fell from 65 per cent to 8 per cent, and almost all femtocell users admitting they would recommend the device to a friend. Polychronos Tzeferos, the operator's new products and innovation manager, says the company is already recording an average of 350 to 400 voice minutes per month using a four user femtocell. Of note, despite the Huawei femtocell being unable to hand-over calls to the Vodafone 3G macro network, Tzeferos said that this issue had not caused customers problems so far. Article
