Vodafone and BT have announced a new partnership to improve accessibility for mobile broadband services.

The cooperative arrangement will see the two companies support the increased demand for cellular services and provide an enhanced mobile broadband experience for customers, according to a joint statement issued by the firms.

Vodafone will now be able to use BT Wholesale services to cope with the increased network traffic experienced as a result of the ballooning popularity of high-bandwidth cellular services such as mobile broadband and live video streaming.

"This agreement supports us in our continued drive to expand our market-leading position in sales of mobile internet and broadband products and services and positions us to meet growing demand from our customers," said Jeni Mundy, chief technology officer of Vodafone UK.

Meanwhile Sally Davis, chief executive of BT Wholesale, said that Vodafone and its customers would both benefit from the cutting-edge services offered by the company.

The new arrangement supports the use of BT's 21st Century Network, which the company expects to be largely complete by the end of the decade.
