Telefonica, KPN boost global footprint

Telefonica and KPN yesterday unveiled a deal that boosts their position as global operators, and expands on current collaborations.
A partnership agreement enables the pair to offer managed mobility services to 1,200 multinational customers in 20 countries in Europe and overseas markets, including Netherlands, Belgium, UK, Spain, Mexico, Brazil and Argentina.
However, the accord does not cover Germany, where the two operators compete directly Telefonica revealed.
The additional coverage provided by the deal “brings many advantages in the mobile workspace,” KPN business market director Ron de Mos said.
Juan C. Lopez-Vives, Telefonica’s multinational solutions director, said the agreement highlights his firm’s commitment to multinational customers, providing “an important opportunity to deliver a high-quality service.”
