Optus Wholesale has announced it will deliver nbn aggregation services exclusively to Australian ISP provider Exetel, extending its 10-year relationship.
Exetel is one of Australia’s largest broadband internet providers, with Optus Wholesale providing Exetel with ULL, Mobile, nbn, TAS (total access services) and corporate data services. Exetel has a focus on the small-to-medium business segment.
Managing director Optus Wholesale, Satellite and SMB, Rob Parcell, said: “Optus continues to assert its position as the leading provider of wholesale services in Australia because our customers want access to our full suite of services and capabilities.”
The new deal follows an exclusive three-year 4G wholesale mobile deal signed with Exetel in May.
Parcell said since 2005, Optus Wholesale had supported Exetel across a range of products and built a great business relationship.
“Through our relationship we are able to provide Exetel with a platform to market nationally. We see Exetel as a key partner and look forward to a continued relationship with them,” he saud
Exetel CEO, Richard Purdy, said, “We are excited by this nbn aggregation deal. It is an important stepping stone towards realising our aggressive nbn growth targets. We look forward to working with Optus as they help us keep our nbn pricing amongst the most competitive in the market.”
Optus is providing Exetel with wholesale aggregation access to all nbn POIs and access technologies available from nbn, via its Residential Broadband over NBN product (RBBoNBN).
RBBoNBN allows customers to enter the nbn market quickly, and gain full access to the nbn footprint with carrier-grade backhaul without heavy capital investment.
