Vodafone and Proximus extend Belgium, Luxembourg agreement to 2022

Vodafone and Proximus have renewed a strategic partnership that will see the two operators continue to offer joint products and services in Belgium and Luxembourg.

A five-year extension of an existing agreement offers multinationals based in the two markets access to a range of Vodafone Global Enterprise services.

This will include Vodafone Spend Analytics – a tool for companies to manage telecoms spend – and Enterprise Managed Mobility – a service for secure use of mobile devices by employees.

Vodafone and Proximus will also remain preferred partners for roaming traffic on each other’s footprints around Europe.

Further, they will continue joint mobile device procurement and device promotion initiatives, including areas such as mobile data monetisation, connected cars and mobility in cooperation with Proximus equity partner Be-Mobile.

The new agreement, which began on 1 April, extends a relationship that began in 2003. It was last renewed in 2014.

Dominique Leroy, CEO of Proximus, said: “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.”

Earlier this week, Proximus’s subsidiary BICS agreed to acquire TeleSign as it seeks to expand its presence in cloud communications.

The Belgium-based operator’s wholesale arm will pay $230 million for the US-headquartered TeleSign, a communication platform provider with annual revenues of around $100 million.
