The world is becoming more and more connected. Connectivity and communications are the pillars of our society and economy. But connectivity goes much further than smart connections between networks, or the technology we use to make contact. In the end, people’s lives are about feeling connected. To each other, to loved ones, friends and family. To the things that are most important to them, so they can fully enjoy everything the world has to offer, and people, business and society can progress.
As VodafoneZiggo, we make valuable connections and that is why the mission of VodafoneZiggo is: Enjoyment and progress with every connection. We aim to stimulate a positive change in society. Build bridges. Help address the problems people facing today. And to use the power of technology to make a difference. Striving for sustainable and social goals is therefore an integral part of VodafoneZiggo strategy.
