No financial details were disclosed, but acquiring TNF, which owns no network infrastructure of its own but has contracts in place with carriers such as KPN, BBned and all the major cablecos, will enable Vodafone to offer broadband services to the enterprise market delivering voice and data communication on mobile and fixed network platforms. It has been cooperating with TNF for many years, but by buying the company, it hopes to strengthen its position in the Dutch market for business services.
