Vodacom is a South African–headquartered multinational telecommunications company owned mostly (60.5%) by the British telecom group Vodafone, whose branding it adopted in 2011. Besides South Africa, Vodacom operates in Tanzania, Mozambique, DR Congo and Lesotho. However, Vodafone Group uses the Vodafone brand in Egypt and Ghana, and the Safaricom brand in Kenya.

In its home country, it is the largest telecommunications company by subscribers, followed by the South African multinational MTN Group and the local companies Cell C and Telkom.

Vodacom dropped its dated 1994 logo and green-and-blue colours on 1 April 2011, and adopted the logo, red colour and branding of its parent company. However, it retained the Vodacom name, thereby being the first Vodafone subsidiary worldwide not to adopt the Vodafone name after rebranding.
