Vodafone partners with Asian teleco giants
Vodaphone has signed a deal to partner with some of Asia’s biggest telecoms providers in order to increase its reach in the region and provide a range of new services to its global customer base.
The Conexus Mobile Alliance will see Vodafone partner with NTT Docomo in Japan, Hutchison Telecom in Hong Kong and FarEasTone in Taiwan amongst others and in return, the new companies will benefit from Vodaphones international footprint and permit Vodafone’s enterprise and multinational customers to extend their managed services to the Conexus countries.
The new agreement won't begin until the existing contracts held by the partners expire.
Commenting on the new deal, Vodafone chief commercial officer Morten Lundal said: “The value to Vodafone of collaborating with Conexus will be significant given the growing importance of Asia to our enterprise customers.”
Conexus are understandably excited at the prospect of the new deal and said the “unprecedented partnership” is a realisation of its growth strategy and aid its plans for global expansion.
