Telefónica and MegaFon Form Global Strategic Partnership

Telefónica and MegaFon, a leading Russian universal telecommunications operator, have established a strategic partnership. The carriers hope to achieve cost savings in equipment purchases via joint procurement.  MegaFon and Telefónica will also exchange technological know-how.


Under the Agreement Telefónica will provide services to multinational corporate clients using MegaFon’s network and similarly MegaFon business customers will have access to services when abroad.

MegaFon will join Telefónica’s Partners Programme, which enables telecommunications operators to work together and to benefit from Telefónica’s scale and knowledge.  Telefónica's programme already includes equity partners such as China Unicom and Telecom Italia, as well as other members.

Currently Telefónica and its Partners provide services to customers in 52 countries with a population of 1.5 billion people.

 “Joining Telefónica’s Partners Programme is in line with MegaFon’s long term strategy focused on efficient growth, mobile Internet service development and enhancement of the customer experience. This Agreement enables us to work with the best international professionals to use their experience in improving quality of services, customer relationship management and in new product development," stated Ivan Tavrin, Chief Executive Officer of MegaFon.
