Eltel’s mobile communication business strengthens its position in the German market in a new frame agreement with Huawei

Since almost ten years Eltel has been a trusted partner for Huawei in several of its European markets. Eltel has now signed a new three-year frame agreement with Huawei to implement LTE and modernisation roll-outs with a German mobile operator. The contract period starts in July 2016 and will run until the summer of 2019.

Huawei and Eltel have signed a new frame agreement consisting of implementation and integration of an LTE network for one of the leading German mobile operators. The services also comprise civil works, project management and project coordination. The planned volume of the contract covers several hundred sites annually and the implementation will take place in the Southern regions of Germany.

“We are happy to continue our successful and long-term partnership with Huawei. In 2015 Eltel was awarded “Best Supplier” by Huawei in Germany. This contract will further strengthen our position as a trusted partner for Huawei in rolling out and modernizing the mobile network for yet another leading mobile operator in Germany. Eltel is now delivering modern mobile infrastructures for all three main mobile operators in Germany. Eltel will have a significant share of this project with Huawei and it emphasizes the joint market power that we are delivering not only in Germany but in Europe altogether”.
