Swisscom and Vodafone extend roaming agreement
02 December 2015 |
Swisscom and Vodafone have extended their strategic partner market agreement by a further four years.
The renewal, which takes effect from 2016, will see Swisscom’s customers continue to enjoy enhanced roaming benefits, such as high-speed data in locations where Vodafone operates a 4G network. In turn, Vodafone’s consumer and enterprise customers will be able to roam on Swisscomm’s network in Switzerland.
“We are delighted to renew our longstanding partner market agreement with Swisscom, building towards a decade of successful collaboration,” said Stefano Gastaut, chief executive at Vodafone Partner Markets.
In addition, the combined footprint of Swisscom and Vodadone enables corporate customers to connect across over 80 markets. Swisscom will also leverage Vodafone’s scale to deliver procurement efficiencies, including the purchasing of network infrastructure, IT equipment and handsets.
Christian Petit, head of Swisscom enterprise customers said: "Thanks to our partnership with Vodafone, we can offer our customers a seamless communication experience with a strong global reach.”
