O2 & VODAFONE TO STRENGTHEN THEIR NETWORK PARTNERSHIP IN THE UK WITH 5G SHARING…

O2 and Vodafone plan to extend the existing network sharing partnership term and include 5G at joint radio network sites. This would enable both O2 and Vodafone to deploy 5G faster, to offer 5G services to more customers over a wider geographic area, and to do so at a lower cost.

In addition, both parties will look to extend greater network autonomy in a number of larger cities by deploying their own separate radio equipment on approximately 2,500 sites, which represents around 15% of sites outside London. This will give them even greater flexibility to meet the needs of their customers.

The companies also intend to upgrade their transmission networks with higher capacity optical fibre cables. This would enable customers to benefit from 5G’s new features, such as low latency, as well as provide both companies with greater economies of scale and an improved choice of infrastructure partners. O2 and Vodafone are also exploring options around their future transmission operating model which could drive synergies in the investment and operation of their end-to-end networks.

O2 and Vodafone further intend to devolve additional activities to CTIL, the 50:50 owned joint venture company that owns and manages the parties’ passive tower infrastructure. This will empower CTIL to take an enhanced role in the operation of the passive infrastructure, in order to improve the efficiency of its operations and pursue opportunities to add further third party tenants to the towers. In that context, the parties will explore a potential monetisation of CTIL after the new arrangements have been finalised.

The initiatives set out in the non-binding heads of terms, and described in this announcement, remain subject to the parties agreeing detailed terms, concluding legally binding agreements and receiving all necessary regulatory approvals. O2 and Vodafone aim to conclude these steps during 2019.

Mark Evans, CEO, Telefónica UK, said: “I’m excited by the potential of these plans to meet the future needs of our customers while delivering value for our business.  In addition, these plans would allow us to utilise the spectrum we acquired in the last auction very effectively.”

 Nick Jeffery, CEO, Vodafone UK, said: “We believe that these plans will generate significant benefits for our business and our customers as we move into the digital era of connected devices, appliances and systems on a mass scale. Customers will benefit from the best 5G experience available and we will deliver even faster speeds by using our spectrum holding more effectivel

  • “I would like to thank Dave and ADSI for making my Electricity switch over both effortless and at the same time lucrative.

    By signing just a couple of letters I have now switched and am saving over £100 pcm.

  • Energy: Simon introduced himself to us when he took over our account and has been friendly and helpful from the very first conversation. We have a couple of properties on the same street, some of which we had forgotten to inform ADSI of and we had got confused as to what was currently in contract/where we were paying high tariff rates.  Simon got this organised with minimal input from us which helped massively and also managed to save us money at the same time.

    I feel confident that our account is in safe hands which gives us one less thing to think about in the running of our business, I know Simon will be in touch as and when I need to know something. I would not hesitate to recommend ADSI Energy and have no intention of going elsewhere as I know they will do everything they can to get us the best deal possible.”

  • “We are now into our third year with ADSI and can only say what a BIG improvement on our previous provider.

    Calls are always answered promptly by a person, not an ‘option machine’.  Each time we have added a new connection the equipment has arrived on time.  Brad Foote has been our dedicated account manager and all it has taken is a quick phone call to action our requirements.

    Ongoing, our account manager keeps a watchful eye on our account and quickly highlights any unusual activity allowing us to address or amend our tariff accordingly. The technical support ADSI provides is also extremely helpful and timesaving.  I would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending this company.”

We get contacted constantly by other companies but we would never leave ADSI as the service is fantastic and our Accounts Manager is brilliant – he helps with all queries and is knowledgeable, friendly and  we feel confident that he  gets us the best deal.

We receive a personalised service and he is always on hand to advise us on maximising our telecoms whilst keeping an eye on budgets, all without compromising the high level of standards we have come to expect.   Because of this we have moved all our mobile needs to ADSI which goes against normal company policy where we by principle never use a sole supplier.”
