Vodafone and SFR have renewed their partner market agreement for France for a further four years to 2020. In addition, Vodafone announces it has signed a framework agreement with Altice for the Dominican Republic.
The renewed SFR agreement builds on the partnership between the two companies in France since 2002 and will ensure that SFR's corporate and consumer customers will continue to benefit from roaming services across Vodafone's operations in 26 countries and the 56 other countries where Vodafone partners with mobile networks.
Vodafone's consumer and enterprise customers will continue to benefit from SFR's presence in the French market. SFR's 4G services are expected to cover more than 90% of the population of France by 2017.
Vodafone has also signed a new Partner Market agreement with Altice in the Dominican Republic. Customers of Altice's operations will now be able to roam onto Vodafone's network and Vodafone's customers travelling to the Dominican Republic will enjoy full roaming services on Altice's network.
Vodafone Partner Markets Chief Executive Stefano Gastaut said: "We are pleased to extend our long-standing relationship with SFR for another four years, enabling us to continue to bring our customers the best of Vodafone and SFR. I am also delighted that our partnership is now expanded to encompass Altice's operations in the Dominican Republic, which means that Vodafone is now present in 82 countries, of which 57 are partners."
