Vodafone Iceland is an Icelandic telecommunications company owned by Sýn. Although the company carries the Vodafone brand and trademark, Vodafone Group owns no interest in the company, but rather franchises the brand and associated advertising styles.

Vodafone Iceland offers mobile (2G/3G/4G), fixed-line services as well as ADSL, VDSL and fiber Internet services to individuals and companies. It also provides a managed multicast IPTV and pay television services over digital terrestrial television, DVB-T2. Its telecommunications branch is a franchise of the Vodafone network, formerly known as Og Vodafone and from 5 October 2006 as Vodafone Iceland.[1] Vodafone Iceland is the first partner network to hold the Vodafone brand. The company is registered in Iceland under the name Fjarskipti hf.
