This enables businesses to now have a global reach through the AWS global footprint.
Shameel Joosub, Vodacom Group Chief Executive said, "The most exciting aspect of this is the integration of AWS into the Vodacom Network, which will allow our clients to take advantage of the benefits of both offerings, and use them to transform their businesses into digitally enabled, tech-first companies".
