Trustive, Europe's leading wireless hotspot access provider, today announced that it has signed a roaming agreement with Vodafone Netherlands, the second largest mobile operator in the Netherlands.
Under the terms of the agreement, Vodafone Netherlands customers that use the Vodafone Hotspot service will be able to access 10,000 hotspots worldwide. Trustive's global network covers a wide range of hotspots across the world, including all the major EU airports.
In addition to providing hotspot access for its customers, it is important for Vodafone Netherlands to provide a branded customer experience for all its customers under the Vodafone Hotspot name. The experience includes transparent billing via the normal Vodafone invoice.
Gavin Dresselhuis, co-founder and managing director of Trustive, said: "We are delighted that Vodafone Netherlands has become a Trustive customer. This strengthens our relationship with Vodafone and is a further endorsement of Trustive's growing position in the WiFi market."
The agreement further extends Trustive's existing relationship with the Vodafone Group, following similar deals it has signed with SFR in France and Vodafone Italy.
