Report: Vodafone focuses on mobile music service

The Vodafone Group is set to launch a new music service that will allow customers to access music using mobile phones, a Reuters report said.


The report also said Vodafone had joined hands with Sony NetServices for the 'Vodafone Radio DJ' service that will offer personalized radio channels streamed to customers' 3G mobile phones and computers.


The company, like many of its peers in the sector, is aiming to boost revenues as it looks to recoup billions of dollars of investment in 3G mobile services, as rising competition forces down the price of phone calls, the report said.


The company plans to initially launch the service in the UK, France, Germany, Spain, Italy and Portugal, and eventually roll out the service to over 20 countries around the world over the year.
