South Korea's LG Uplus has announced a new strategic partnership with Vodafone Group for the South Korean market.

The agreement, the first strategic partnership between LG Uplus and a global operator, will involve collaboration on both enterprise and consumer operations.

Vodafone will provide best practices and draw on its global reach to support LG Uplus across all areas of its business, including network strategy and development, as well as customer experience management.

The two operators will also cooperate to jointly offer unified communications and enterprise services to multinational companies with a presence in South Korea. LG Uplus will meanwhile join Vodafone's global partner market network.
