Telefónica and DOCOMO Europe team up in Europe
Telefónica and Japanese operator DOCOMO Europe have teamed up to support Japanese multinational companies operating in Europe.
Telefónica will act as a sales agency for DOCOMO Europe starting in the UK and then expanding to other countries.
The deal falls under Telefónica International Wholesale Services S.L. (TIWS) and means that DOCOMO Europe customers will be able to access similar propositions to what they are offered in Japan.
DOCOMO Europe managing director Hiroshi Tamano said: ‘This agreement enables DOCOMO Europe to offer our customers a comprehensive mobile solution with confidence in the quality and breadth of Telefónica’s products and services, reinforcing our mutual commitment to top ranking customer satisfaction.’
Telefónica multinational solutions director, Fernando Astiaso, said: ‘The partnership with DOCOMO Europe is enabling us to join forces to offer a better alternative to Japanese multinationals operating in Europe.’
TIWS CEO Jose R. Vela said: ’The agreement with DOCOMO Europe adds value to the mobility offer we make to our multinational customers, and gives us the opportunity to expand our services. With this agreement TIWS consolidates its position as one of the largest companies in the wholesale telecommunications market.’
