Posted: 03-Nov-2004 [Source: Vodafone]

[South African operator, Vodacom, to make Vodafone's 3G services available initially via the Vodafone Mobile Connect Card with Vodafone live! multi-media service set to launch early next year.]

Vodafone Group today announced that it has reached an agreement with Vodacom, South Africa's leading mobile operator, for Vodacom to market Vodafone's global services.

Through the agreement, Vodacom will offer Vodafone's next generation mobile services in the South African market. Vodacom will market the 3G Vodafone Mobile Connect Card, Europe's first high speed lap top data card, to its business customers. The Vodafone Mobile Connect Card allows customers to quickly install a Vodafone branded data card and software on their lap top, offering access to e-mail, calendar, contacts, and other business applications.

Vodacom plans to introduce Vodafone's industry leading multi-media consumer service, Vodafone live!, early next year. Vodacom customers will be able to access a whole new world of communication from customised Vodafone handsets, supplied by world leading handset manufacturers. Customers will be able to send and receive video and picture messages, download games, music, pictures and video and access entertainment such as sport, news and weather from leading entertainment brands. Vodafone live! is currently available in 20 countries and already has more than 10 million customers.

The agreement will also enable Vodafone customers travelling in South Africa to access Vodafone's enhanced roaming services. Contract and pre-paid Vodafone customers using the Vodacom network will now be able to dial their domestic short codes to seamlessly access mobile services such as voice mail and customer services. Vodafone customers will also be able to use services such as the Vodafone Mobile Connect Card and Vodafone live! Roaming costs will be made simple and clear for Vodafone customers in South Africa with the future introduction of Vodafone World, Vodafone's flat rate roaming price plan.
