“Ericsson is the specialist in this area and will be critical in helping maintain our high quality network.”

Mats Granryd, managing director of Ericsson UK, said: “In this contract we are ideally positioned to deliver value to Vodafone UK.

“It also offers us the opportunity to build on our strong relationship and develop our collaboration further to deliver future business benefits.”

Financial details of the transaction were not disclosed.
