Vodafone reported a better-than-expected 2.2 percent rise in first-quarter organic service revenue, marking an eighth consecutive quarterly rise in its main growth measure, aided by a strong performance in Spain and Germany.

The world’s second-largest mobile operator confirmed its outlook for the full year on Friday, saying its European markets – which only returned to growth in the final quarter of 2015/2016 – were stable, with growth of 0.3 percent despite the impact of cuts in roaming charges.

Analysts had predicted a flat result in Europe.

Faster growing markets in Africa, Middle East and Asia-Pacific grew by 7.7 percent, beating analyst forecasts of a 7 percent rise.
