LONDON --(BUSINESS WIRE)--

Vodafone and Singapore’s StarHub have agreed to renew their strategic partnership for a further three years, building on a successful relationship that has seen significant collaboration in Singapore and throughout Vodafone’s global markets.

Over the past five years, the Vodafone and StarHub partnership has expanded across enterprise services covering mobile connectivity as well as co-branding and knowledge sharing initiatives.

Under the renewal, which commences today (30 November 2016), all StarHub mobile customers can continue to benefit from advanced mobile voice and data roaming propositions, including high-speed data on Vodafone’s 4G networks. Similarly, Vodafone customers visiting Singapore can enjoy high-speed roaming on StarHub’s 4G LTE-Advanced network.

The partnership will continue to focus on multinational corporations (MNCs), meeting the growing demand for unified communications and enterprise services.

In the coming months, StarHub will join Vodafone’s International Enterprise network, helping Singapore enterprises expand their business overseas by providing a simple way to scale up and manage their mobile communication needs. Global companies intending to set up operations in Singapore will be able to enjoy the same benefits.

Vodafone Partner Markets Chief Executive Diego Massidda said: “Our long-standing collaboration with StarHub has delivered an outstanding communication experience in Singapore and around the world for customers of both companies. I am delighted that our partner market journey will continue and I look forward to serving StarHub’s enterprise customers with the best products and services that Vodafone can offer.”

StarHub Chief Commercial Officer Kevin Lim said: “We value our long-standing partnership with Vodafone. This mutually beneficial collaboration enables StarHub to bridge geographical gaps, offering our customers global reach, and Vodafone's global customers, local support. This is especially important, as secured communication, high-speed connectivity and service quality form the foundation of a successful business in today’s hyper-connected world.”
