Africa, Middle East and Asia Pacific grew most - up 20 per cent to £12.3bn. Revenues in Europe fell 3.4 per cent to £30.1bn

Revenue from data grew 26.4 per cent, pushed by continued take up of smartphones - up from 11.6 per cent to 18.7 per cent in Europe.

For 2012 Voda expects profits of between £11bn and £11.8bn.
