Telefonica, Yoigo in mobile infrastructure sharing deal

Monday 2 July 2007 | 15:40 CET | News
Telefonica has reached an agreement with Yoigo to share each another's mobile infrastructure. The move is aimed at improving the quality of the two companies' services and covering a larger number of customers, in rural and urban areas. The deal replaces one between the two companies reached on 01 October 2003 which set the terms for the sharing of infrastructure, especially for easing the rollout of Yoigo's UMTS network. Under the new five-year agreement, which is extendable, the terms for sharing infrastructure have been updated for the new needs of the market. Telefonica will be able to use the deployments already made by Yoigo. Rivals Vodafone and Orange also have an infrastructure-sharing agreement in Spain.
