Telkom South Africa signs roaming deal with Telenor

Telkom South Africa and Telenor have signed a three-and-a-half-year managed roaming agreement that will enable Telkom to improve its roaming retail service to its end users.

Telenor will be responsible for the end-to-end wholesale roaming process for Telkom South Africa. Meanwhile, Telkom South Africa will be able to utilize the Telenor wholesale roaming group platform and benefit from the group scale in terms of cost and revenue.

“We have a long-standing and important relationship with Telenor. Their extensive roaming coverage combined with their vast experience and competence is significant in providing our end users with the desired roaming experience,” says Althon Beukes, Chief Executive Officer of Telkom’s Wholesale division, Openserve.

“Partnering with one of the world’s major mobile groups such as Telenor helps us to scale our retail roaming services and improve operational efficiency, which is very important to cater for our corporate and leisure travelers in South Africa.”

Telenor has pledged to ensure this through the agreement.

“We are delighted to support Telkom with reduced wholesale roaming costs as well as operational costs. This is realized by making use of Telenor’s scale, simplified global processes, and highly experienced team,” says Andre Nicholas Hansen, Chief Partnership Officer of Telenor’s Global Wholesale unit.

“Speed in service launches, superior quality and improved cost will be even more important in the years to come, especially with increased pressure on the business and further consolidation that we see in the market. We are looking forward to succeeding together with Telkom in this initiative.”
