New partnership aims to boost business in Latin America

FreeMove Alliance, the global mobile telecommunications alliance between Deutsche Telekom, Orange, Telia and Telecom Italia, and Latin American telecom giant Millicom have announce a major new partnership agreement.

FreeMove Alliance serves as a mobile services hub that helps multinationals to optimize their investment in mobile connectivity by offering global access to the most reliable networks though a central point of management.

Millicom, a leading provider of fixed, mobile and digital services in Latin America serving enterprise customers through its Tigo Business brand, will work with FreeMove Alliance to offer seamless connectivity solutions to multinational customers across the Americas and beyond.

The new partnership will expand FreeMove Alliance’s reach in Latin America, adding Millicom’s eight mobile communications markets – Bolivia, Colombia, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, Panama and Paraguay – to its network of more than one hundred markets worldwide.

The partners say that the cooperation will prove valuable in particular to T-Mobile US and TIM Brasil, both FreeMove Alliance members, whose multinational customer bases are regularly doing business across the Americas.

Millicom’s multinational customers who already operate in one or more of Millicom’s eight Latin American mobile markets now have access to the alliance’s tier one operators in the US, Brazil and Europe, as well as its wider global network.

They will also benefit from the FreeMove Alliance’s centralized enterprise mobility offerings including contracting, reporting, ordering and incident management, as well as its extensive global business support.
