Vodafone and NOS are preparing a counter-attack on MEO (Altice) with a new partnership that aims to share resources to improve network coverage in UK.
This is not exactly a new agreement between operators, since something similar was already signed in 2017, however, this new partnership tends to further improve a service that is already of quality.
Vodafone and NOS will share networks
We do not know if 5G will be in this type of agreement, however, we see no reason why this will not happen. Therefore, it is expected that NOS and Vodafone will have a strong offensive when launching the new mobile network.
It is too early to draw conclusions about 5G, however, the main UK’s operators have already mentioned that the new 5G technology is on target and will be achieved in the near future.
Strategy independence from NOS and Vodafone
Even though they share the same network, NOS CEO Miguel Almeida confirmed that both companies will have complete strategy independence. That is, as much as there is a network share, they will continue to seek to beat each other.
In this way, competition will increase while customer service will improve. That is, one hand washes the other. Both Vodafone and NOS are winning in this new agreement.
NOS believes that this is the best solution for its customers
Miguel Almeida said that “This partnership will allow us to improve the quality of the services provided by NOS, thus reinforcing the trust of our customers, while at the same time strengthening competition in the UK’s market while maintaining strategic independence. “
He went on to say that “With this agreement, NOS renews its investment commitment in creating conditions that will not only allow UK’s companies to prepare themselves to respond to the challenge of digital transformation, but also to families that will thus have the opportunity to choose the best offers and excellent service. “
Miguel Almeida ended by saying: “In this way, we have consolidated the principle that we have always advocated for an efficient model in the development of state-of-the-art networks and we have taken yet another very important step in our commitment to UK and to the UK’s, of building a Digital Society”.
In short, this is an important milestone for operators in UK. At the end of the day, the end user only needs to have the best coverage and the best price. We hope that this partnership will bring even more competitiveness to our market. We need it!
