<p>BigAir’s symmetrical high speed broadband services ideal for business-grade VoIP delivery</p>
<p>My Net Fone Limited (ASX: MNF), Australia’s leading VoIP service provider and BigAir Group Limited (ASX:BGL), leading provider of wireless broadband services, have agreed to deliver convergent wireless solutions providing voice and broadband data services to Australian businesses.</p>
<p>The wholesale agreement, signed by the two companies today, will enable MyNetFone to offer business customers premium quality VoIP service with BigAir’s carrier-grade wireless broadband infrastructure.</p>
<p>“We are excited to be partnering with BigAir to bundle its high speed wireless broadband infrastructure with our premium quality VoIP service in order to offer a fully convergent solution to our business customers,” said Andy Fung, Managing Director, My Net Fone Ltd. “The partnership provides great synergy for the two companies as well as delivering excellent value to our respective customers. It is indeed a win-win for everyone.”</p>
<p>BigAir CEO Jason Ashton said that there was growing demand from businesses for VoIP services. “Australian businesses are looking at improving productivity and cutting costs and one of the logical steps for these companies is implementing a high-speed IP network running VoIP services.</p>
<p>“VoIP service providers such as MyNetFone are partnering with BigAir due to their need for symmetrical broadband services to support high quality business-grade VoIP. ADSL services do not deliver the features that are required,” Mr Ashton added.</p>
<p>For organisations evaluating VoIP, while cost savings still remain high on the list of benefits, other business drivers include mobility, telecommuting and simplified management - all of which are provided by the BigAir/MyNetFone joint offering.</p>
