Tunisie Telecom Partners with Vodafone for Better Services
Under the non-equity agreement, signed last week, Vodafone will provide support in a range of areas, including enterprise, consumer, technology, and procurement. The partnership will include roaming and carrier services agreements and will see the businesses collaborate on further potential opportunities to benefit customers as well as the two companies.
Vodafone Partner Markets Chief Executive Diego Massidda said: “I am delighted that Tunisie Telecom has joined our Partner Market network. I am looking forward to bringing the best of Vodafone’s services and expertise to Tunisia, and building a strong, lasting relationship that will benefit customers of both companies”.
CEO of Tunisie Telecom Mohamed Fadhel Kraiem said: “We are very excited by this partnership, which will enable TT to provide efficient solutions for multinationals with a presence in Tunisia in addition to the corporate sector in the country”.
Thanks to this partner market agreement, TT “will be able to offer competitive services for roaming, both for the benefit of customers travelling to countries where Vodafone and its partners are present and for Vodafone customers visiting Tunisia”, he added.
The deal also gives Tunisie Telecom “the opportunity to access Vodafone’s global knowledge base and benefits from economies of scale when purchasing telecoms equipment”, stressed Kraiem.
The Tunisian telecom operator serves both consumer and corporate customers with more than a million fixed customers and 4.5 million mobile customers. TT offers the largest mobile coverage in the country. It owns and operates a nationwide fixed and fibre network infrastructure.
