CPWB back with Vodafone after eight-year exile


Distributor partner with mobile operator to enable its partners to sell One Net Business product

Vodafone has reinstated Carphone Warehouse Buisness as an airtime distributor – as it seeks to drive sales of One Net Business through the indirect channel.

The new agreement will initially roll out to between 10-15 CPWB dealer partners, which CPWB refused to name, before a wider roll out in the coming months. Partners will only be able to sign customers

that include Vodafone One Net Business product for now.

Training and accreditation courses will be held by CPWB  throughout January, with dealers also receiving marketing support and tools to help promote the product.

CPWB head of B2B Bob Sweetlove (pictured) said: “There is a growing customer appetite to pull together mobile and fixed services under one roof and we want our dealers to be able to support and benefit from this trend.”

Vodafone axed CPWB (then HSC) in 2006, following a strategy review which also saw Fone Logistics – now Daisy Distribution – and Carphone Warehouse retail axed.
