Vodafone New Zealand has acquired the internet telephony provider WorldxChange Communications (WXC) for an undisclosed sum. WXC’s enterprise customers include the Reserve Bank, the Earthquake Commission and IAG Insurance; it also offers voice-over-internet protocol (VoIP) services to the residential sector. WXC was previously owned by its management, including co-founder and chief technology officer Paul Clarkin, who held a 70.6% interest. Vodafone is New Zealand’s largest cellular operator by subscribers, and is also active in the fixed broadband market following its 2012 acquisition of TelstraClear.
