Roshan, a mobile operator in Afghanistan has signed a ‘Partner market’ agreement with Vodafone. The strategic partnership is exclusive to the Afghan market and will aid Roshan in better serving its 5 million customers through sharing of best practices and knowledge. Vodafone has over 600 million customers in over 70 countries.

As a result of this agreement, Roshan’s customers will have access to a broader range of products and services, and better voice and data roaming services in countries where Vodafone is active. Roshan will also gain access to greater expertise through site visits, product innovation and workshops.

In return Vodafone will use Roshan’s network to offer its customers appropriate network quality, data capabilities and coverage while roaming in Afghanistan.

Karim Khoja, CEO, Roshan said: “The Partner Market Agreement with Vodafone will enable Roshan customers to join the world’s largest mobile network family of over 600 million customers.”

The agreement will also build on the “strategic partnership” that Roshan and Vodafone have had during the past five years, according to Colin MacDougall, director, MEA and the Americas, Vodafone Partner Markets.

The recent partner market agreement between Roshan and Vodafone also builds on the existing partnership of the two telcos on M-Paisa, which uses Vodafone’s technology and Roshan’s network to power the first mobile money service in Afghanistan.
