AusBBS partners with Service Elements

Service Elements customers to access a range of AusBBS’ plans currently only available through the NBN

NBN ISP, AusBBS, has inked a deal with building and managing Networks carrier, Service Elements, to make its services available over Service Elements’ private optical fibre network.

AusBBS CEO, Rob Appel, said the deal means that customers located within the Service Elements fibre footprint can access a range of AusBBS’ plans currently only available through the NBN.

Appel claimed that more than 60,000 homes and businesses have already been passed by the fibre network, and another 100,000 homes are expected to get passed within the next year.

“With more than 30 estates in WA already installed and a large pipeline of new estates coming on board over the next 12 months, the Service Elements network represents a substantial additional market for our services,” he said.

“We are excited about replicating our NBN offering on the Service Elements optical fibre footprint in a way that will give customers in those areas a real choice in service providers.”

Independently-owned fibre networks are in the spotlight at the moment, with their future likely to be significantly impacted by the Federal elections.

According to Appel, as the Federal elections looms, the NBN faces an uncertain future.

“Retail service providers like AusBBS are dealing with that uncertainty and risk at the coalface. This deal with Service Elements allows us to diversify our network supply arrangements into super-fast fibre households,” he added.
