TT Correspondent |  |  22 Sep 2011

Tata Communications, a global communications service provider, and Essar Telecom Kenya (yuMobile), a unit of Essar Group have on Thursday signed a mutually beneficial strategic sourcing agreement.

 

Under the landmark deal, yuMobile will, exclusively, route all its international voice traffic through Tata Communications’ network.  yuMobile continues to be one of the company’s key suppliers of telecommunication services throughout Kenya.

 

The partnership will allow yuMobile to tap into Tata Communications’ extensive and robust voice infrastructure, enabling it to deliver higher quality international calls at competitive rates to customers in Kenya.

Africa represents one of the strongest growth opportunities in the voice sector and our experience in the region means that we are ideally placed to help yuMobile build its business in Kenya.
