Telefonica S.A.'s Telefónica UK And Vodafone Group Plc's Vodafone UK To Strengthen Their Network Collaboration


Wednesday, 6 Jun 2012 08:00pm EDT 

Telefonica S.A.'s Telefónica UK and Vodafone Group Plc's Vodafone UK announced their intention to strengthen their existing network partnership, by pooling the basic parts of their network infrastructure to create one national grid running each operator's independent spectrum. Telefónica UK and Vodafone UK propose jointly to operate and manage a single network grid in the UK that will run two competing nationwide mobile internet and voice networks. Both companies will retain complete control over their wireless spectrum, intelligent core networks and customer data. They will continue to actively compete with each other in all products and services, enabled through the „intelligent‟ parts of their networks. A new 50/50 joint venture company will be created through the consolidation of both Telefónica UK and Vodafone UK‟s existing basic network infrastructure, including towers and masts, which will be transferred to the joint venture or decommissioned over time. Under the proposals, both companies will have access to a single grid of 18,500 masts representing an increase in sites of more than 40% for each operator. The joint venture will also be responsible for the building of new sites needed to extend coverage into rural and remote areas. Telefónica UK and Vodafone UK are currently engaged in discussions with Ofcom and intend to establish the joint venture and network sharing arrangement later this year, following the satisfactory conclusion of those discussions.
