Vodafone Ireland acquires Complete Telecom


Operator buys managed data network and fixed service provider in a move it claims positions it as the top provider of telecoms services to Irish businesses and the public sector

Vodafone Ireland has acquired enterprise managed data network and fixed service provider Complete Telecom for an undisclosed fee.

The operator said the purchase of the Dublin-based company clearly positions it as the leading provider of telecoms services to Irish businesses and the public sector.

Vodafone Ireland began offering enterprise managed data network solutions following its acquisition of Interfusion last year and since then has experienced a 30 per cent rise in revenues.

Following the acquisition of Complete Telecom, it now expects to double its revenue in this area and will establish a new dedicated enterprise solutions unit to deliver its expanded portfolio to business customers nationwide.

Complete Telecom, which employs 23 people and has around 300 customers in Ireland, will continue to operate as a standalone entity for an initial period and will then transfer to the new enterprise customer solutions unit with the operator.

Vodafone Ireland claimed the ability to deliver a secure and resilient managed data network to customers will enable businesses to confidently leverage Cloud solutions in order to drive further business efficiencies.

Vodafone enterprise director Anne O’Leary (pictured) said: “Companies want straightforward management of their day-to-day communications needs from one single provider. Complete Telecom is a great fit for us, bringing the scale we need to offer bespoke fixed and mobile converged solutions while also providing specialist tools to support customers in managing their data traffic.”

Complete Telecom managing director Kevin Murphy said: “Over the past eleven years we have gained significant expertise in delivering enterprise network data solutions, in particular to the public sector. We look forward to working with equally experienced teams within Vodafone and Interfusion in order to meet the increasing demand from customers to manage complex enterprise communications.”
