Vodafone and Reykjavík City sign telecommunication agreement

Mayor of Reykjavík Vilhjálmur Th. Vilhjálmsson (left) and director of Vodafone in Iceland Árni Pétur Jónsson (right) signed a three-year agreement Wednesday on telecommunication service for the city.

At the same time a special “green” hotline for Reykjavík City and Vodafone was opened, (+354) 900 9555. Each call costs ISK 500 (USD 8, EUR 6) and callers donate a tree to the city to be planted this summer as an initiative to reduce the impact of CO2 emissions.

The agreement includes the entire telephone service for the capital – landline telephones, mobile telephones and data transfer for telephone calls between countries.

The agreement also includes a so-called Black Berry service. Users will be able to check their emails, diaries and contact lists from their laptops and surf the internet from their mobiles from the streets of Reykjavík.

The agreement is worth ISK 230 million (USD 3.9 million, EUR 2.7 million) and Vodafone estimates it will enable Reykjavík City to save ISK 25 million (USD 390,000, EUR 289,000).
