Vodafone marked the 10th anniversary of its Partner Markets division – now with relationships established in more than 40 countries – by unveiling plans to expand its partnerships.
In the last 6 months alone, Vodafone has established or renewed agreements with 12 companies including SFR and members of the Conexus Mobile Alliance in the Asia-Pacific region (including Indosat, KT, NTT Docomo, etc.). The agreement with SFR was initiated in June 2011, after the sale of Vodafone’s 44% stake in SFR to Vivendi. In French Polynesia, Vodafone has formed a strategic partnership with Pacific Mobile Telecom which will be deploying a 3G network under the Vodafone brand.
For 2012, Vodafone plans to establish new partnerships to expand its geographic footprint in Asia and South America. The operator hopes to meet the growing demand among multinational businesses for sophisticated voice and data communications solutions, as well as advanced roaming services.
