Hutch, founded in 2004 as CallLink, is a mobile network operator in Sri Lanka and the only company to use the Hutch brand after its Indian namesake rebranded to Vodafone in 2007. Hutch, like its Indian namesake before 2007, is owned by CK Hutchison Holdings (formerly Hutchison Whampoa Limited).
In November 2018, CK Hutchison Holdings acquired Etisalat’s Sri Lankan operations, with the intention to merge the Hutch and Etisalat brands and create a stronger competitor to Dialog Axiata and Mobitel, which dominate the telecom market in the country. The merger will reduce the number of telecom operators in the country from five to four (Dialog, Mobitel, Hutch—which will eventually replace the Etisalat brand—and Airtel).
For the Indian telecom operator known as Hutch until 2007, see Vodafone (India).
This article or section lacks a former logo at the moment. You can help Logopedia by uploading it here.
The logo was the same as the Hutch logo used in India until 2005, when a pink logo was introduced there until it rebranded to Vodafone in 2007.
The symbol was removed, leaving only the wordmark.
