Vodafone Signs Deal with Conexus Mobile Alliance to Extend Its Reach

Vodafone has forged partnership with one of the biggest groups of Asian telecom firms to expand its presence on the continent.

The company, which already has a massive presence in India, signed a deal with the Conexus Mobile Alliance, which includes companies like NTT Docomo of Japan, Hutchison Telecom of Hong Kong and FarEasTone of Taiwan.

Under the deal, Vodafone will be able to provide enhanced and additional services to its business and enterprise clients in countries where Conexus members operate.

"In countries where Vodafone already has a current partner market agreement in place, any new agreement with a Conexus member would take effect once the existing contract had expired,” said Vodafone in a statement.

"The only Conexus country in which Vodafone would not seek an alliance is India, where Vodafone already operates under the Vodafone brand. India remains a Conexus country and there will be no change in the day-to-day operation and commitment of her alliance members," it added.

Vodaphone is targeting countries for which business travel is common.
