To better serve the needs of their respective customers in Thailand
UK-based Vodafone and Thai telecom operator dtac have signed a partner market agreement. The exclusive strategic partnership is intended to help both companies to better serve the needs of their respective customers in Thailand.
Under the terms of this agreement, dtac will have exclusive access to Vodafone’s range of products, devices and services in Thailand.
As part of a phased rollout, Vodafone is expected to be able to use dtac’s network to offer voice and data roaming for its customers visiting Thailand through the use of ‘home’ network capabilities.
The two companies will co-operate to provide additional support to Vodafone Global Enterprise customers, many of whom have a presence in Thailand. In turn, Vodafone will provide dtac customers with improved voice and data roaming access across 67 countries.
Tore Johnsen, CEO of dtac, said: This partnership with Vodafone will enable our customers to benefit from joining one of the world’s leading international mobile networks, while maintaining the advantages of being a local operator, supporting our strategy to best serve Thailand’s population. This alliance will bring substantial benefits to our customers and shareholders, becoming a catalyst for expanding our service portfolio and improving our operational efficiency.
