Vodafone's Hard Bargain

8:00 AM -- At Vodafone Group plc (NYSE: VOD)'s Technology Update conference today, CTO Steve Pusey said the operator had forced down the price it pays for Node Bs (3G base stations) by more than 50 percent between 2004 and 2007.

It'd be interesting to know what that cost reduction would have been if the carrier hadn't included Huawei Technologies Co. Ltd. among its list of global mobile infrastructure suppliers. (See Huawei Gets Vodafone Award and Huawei Meets Vodafone's Needs.)
