Vodafone pens deal with Swiss network

Vodafone has extended its partnership with Swisscom in a bid to support its business and international customers and to keep down purchasing costs.

Vodafone said the partnership with Switzerland’s dominant phone company would enable them to jointly procure phones, network equipment, service platforms and other necessary infrastructure.

It would also help the two companies to better support multinational and business clients and offer improved roaming arrangements for international travellers. It follows an agreement last week with Asia’s Conexus Mobile Alliance.

Vodafone chief commercial officer Morten Lundal said: “This enhances our ability to serve our customers headquartered in Switzerland.”
