Vodafone's growth edges lower in Europe, but still on track for year

LONDON, Feb 1 (Reuters) - Vodafone, the world's second largest mobile operator, reported a 1.1 percent rise in organic service revenue for its third quarter, a slight slowdown on the second, due to more promotional activity in some European markets.

The company, however, said on Thursday it remained on track to meet its full-year guidance to grow organic adjusted earnings by around 10 percent.
