Singapore’s StarHub will join Vodafone’s International Enterprise network in the coming months to help local businesses expand overseas, as part of a renewal of a strategic partnership between the operators for another three years.
The network aims to help businesses scale up and manage their mobile communication needs. Global companies intending to set up operations in Singapore will also be able to take advantage of the network.
Meanwhile, customers of both operators will continue to benefit from “advanced mobile voice and data roaming propositions”.
This includes high-speed data on Vodafone’s 4G networks and, for Vodafone customers visiting Singapore, access to roaming on StarHub’s 4G LTE-Advanced network.
Over the past five years, the partnership has expanded across enterprise services covering mobile connectivity as well as co-branding and knowledge sharing initiatives.
The deal is part of Vodafone’s Partner Markets initiative, which forms strategic alliances with operators around the world (in countries where it does not own networks) to extend Vodafone’s reach into local markets.
Most recently, the operator announced a partnership with Iranian ISP Hiweb for the rollout and modernisation of the latter’s infrastructure for both fixed and mobile services for consumers and enterprises.
