HSBC has signed a multi-million pound deal with Vodafone for the delivery of mobile communications to the bank’s 21,000 UK staff.
Vodafone announced that its contract with the bank had been extended by two years, having been HSBC's supplier for 20 years. Vodafone was unable to provide further details of the value of the contract.
Commenting on the deal, Gabriel Pepe, global head of telecommunications and client technologies at HSBC, said: “It is important to ensure our employees have the best tools to serve our customers and we believe that this contract extension will meet their needs.”
Jan Geldmacher, CEO, Vodafone Global Enterprise, added: “World class businesses need world class mobile communications. We welcome the opportunity to strengthen further our long-standing relationship with HSBC.”
In separate news, the network provider announced last week that it had upgraded its mobile internet service to businesses and consumers with the launch of its own 4G service, alongside rival o2.
