Vodafone has signed a three-year agreement with Tunisian state-owned telco Tunisie Telecom (TT). The TT deal is the first of its kind for Vodafone in North Africa.
As part of the agreement, Vodafone will offer operational and strategic support to TT, including purchasing support and technology. The two companies will also be partnering for roaming.
Said TT CEO Mohamed Fadhel Kraiem of the deal: “We are proud of this partnership that will provide Tunisia Telecom with more efficient solutions for the benefit of multinationals based in Tunisia and all Tunisian companies.”
He said more, too, about the benefits. “TT will be able to offer more competitive roaming services for our compatriots while traveling in countries where Vodafone and its partners are present and Vodafone customers visiting Tunisia. Under this agreement, TT will also have the opportunity to access Vodafone’s global knowledge base, and to realise economies of scale that will be found when we purchase telecommunications equipment.”
