Vodafone Italia expands wiifi footprint

Trustive has signed a bi-lateral roaming agreement with Vodafone
Italia, the second largest mobile phone operator in Italy.
The agreement will allow Vodafone Italia’s customers to access Trustive’s
global network.  Similarly, Trustive customers can now use Vodafone
Italia’s network of hotspots located in major five-star hotels and airports
across Italy. The Trustive network currently covers over 20,000 hotspots
worldwide, including all major EU airports.

In addition to extending hotspot access for its customers, the key
requirement for Vodafone Italia was to provide a branded customer
experience for all its customers using the Trustive network.  This means
that customers can now access the network, wherever they are in the world
via a fully-branded Vodafone landing page.

The agreement further extends Trustive’s relationship with the Vodafone
Group, following a similar hotspot roaming deal it recently signed with
SFR, France’s second largest mobile operator.

Gavin Dresselhuis, co-founder and managing director of Trustive, said:
“This agreement extends our global footprint and further strengthens our
wholesale position within the WiFi market, with another Vodafone Group
member becoming a Trustive customer.”
