Proximus and Vodafone have agreed to renew their co-operation agreement for Belgium and Luxembourg for a further five years, building on a successful long-term relationship that began in 2003, with the two companies jointly providing a range of products and services to better serve their business and residential customers.
Under the agreement, which commenced on 1 April 2017, multinational companies in Belgium and Luxembourg with global agreements from Vodafone and Proximus, Tango and Telindus will continue to benefit from international managed mobile services and have access to a range of Vodafone Global Enterprise services. These include Vodafone Spend Analytics, which provides visibility and control of a company’s telecommunication spend, and Enterprise Managed Mobility, which enables employees to securely use smartphones and tablets. As such Proximus serves its international customers better and Vodafone is able to offer a local quality support service.
Proximus and Vodafone remain preferred partners for roaming traffic on each other’s footprint. Mobile customers of Proximus, Tango and Telindus will continue to benefit from mobile voice and data roaming, including high-speed data on Vodafone’s 4G networks. Vodafone customers visiting Belgium and Luxembourg will also enjoy voice and data roaming, including high-speed data on the 4G network of Proximus and its affiliate Tango in Luxembourg.
Proximus and Vodafone will continue to benefit from joint mobile device procurement and device promotion. Within the framework of the agreement, the two companies will also further explore some specific areas like mobile data monetization, connected cars and mobility solutions.
Dominique Leroy, CEO of Proximus, said: “We look forward to continuing our excellent collaboration with Vodafone. Being the partner of a global player allows us to offer our residential and professional customers the best of both worlds: a local quality partner and global advantages such as the best value proposition for smartphones and accessories. Within this partnership, Proximus and Vodafone will also explore some specific areas like connected cars and mobility solutions.”
Vodafone Partner Markets Chief Executive Diego Massidda said: “We have built a strong relationship with Proximus dating back to 2003, and I am delighted to announce the next stage in our mutual co-operation. Customers of Vodafone and Proximus will continue to benefit from an excellent range of consumer and enterprise products and services across our networks for many years to come.”
