With plans to grow their collective business to £600m (€672m) over the next five years, the partnership aims to deliver more than £100m annual revenue from mobile, fixed-line, broadband, and IT services. Included in the deal, is a commitment from Onecom to triple growth in fixed-line services and become the market leader in unified communications solutions for the small- and medium-size (SME) enterprise market.

Onecom – whose Chief Executive is former Telefónica UK Sales Director Ben Dowd – said that the new agreement places it to capitalise on Vodafone UK’s (VfUK) 5G rollout, which began in early-July 2019 (see separate report).

Onecom was named Vodafone Total Communications Partner of the Year in 2015, 2016, 2017, and 2018. The announcement of the latest contract extension follows an earlier renewal in October 2015 (Vodafonewatch, #138), and comes on the heels of a £30m funding deal between Onecom and HSBC in May 2019.
