C&W signs €126m partnership with Tesco

Tesco has chosen struggling Cable&Wireless to be its first exclusive provider of telecoms, signing a deal worth £100 million (€126 million) over five years. The contract involves connecting 1,800 Tesco sites in more than 14 countries including China, India, Japan, the US, Ireland and Turkey.


Cable&Wireless will implement a VoIP platform on the network, which should reduce Tesco's voice and data call costs, as well enabling the introduction of a Fixed Mobile Convergence (FMC) service for Tesco employees.
