Vodacom Group looks to trim costs by outsourcing network maintenance

16 Jul 2015

South African mobile operator Vodacom Group has short-listed four firms bidding on a contract to provide its network maintenance as it looks to cut costs. Agence Ecofin writes that the companies vying for the three-year contract that is supposed to start on 1 November 2015 are Huawei Technologies (China), Alcatel-Lucent (France), Ericsson (Sweden) and Neotel (South Africa). Vodacom spokesman Richard Boorman was keen to point out that the outsourcing plan would not result in job losses.
