It seems to be a good week for partnerships. Vodafone UK and BT have just extended their existing partnership into a five-year deal that’s enabling Vodafone to provide fixed-line telephone services to small and medium sized businesses (SMEs).
The announcement coincides with the launch of Vodafone One Net, which can provide a fixed-line and mobile phone service with a single telephone number, a single voicemail service and a single contract. A similar corporate service – Vodafone One – was launched earlier this year. Vodafone One Net also offers a flat call charge whether fixed or mobile and the option of a virtual switchboard across multiple locations. [BT press release; Vodafone press release]
