Vodafone, Nos exploring network sharing partnership

6 Feb 2020

Vodafone Portugal has signed a Letter of Intent (LoI) with rival player Nos to explore a potential nationwide partnership for mobile network sharing. The two parties anticipate that the exclusive period of negotiations will conclude in June this year, and expect the pact to improve the economic rationality, efficiency and deployment speed of future network rollouts.

Mario Vaz, CEO of Vodafone Portugal, commented: ‘This partnership will bring significant benefits to our customers, increasing confidence in the services we provide and strengthening competition in the telecommunications market, contributing decisively to the development of the ‘Gigabit Society’ in Portugal. Vodafone has always advocated, for the sake of greater market dynamism and for the benefit of customers, infrastructure sharing models, this agreement being an extension of the partnership entered into with Nos in 2017.’
