Infrastructure provider, Telarus, has entered the New Zealand market via a wholesale services agreement with Telecom New Zealand’s wholesale business.
Telarus managing director, Jules Rumsey, said New Zealand presents ample opportunity and the deal will enable it to offer fixed line voice, ADSL and SHDSL services.
“A lot of our Australian customers have a presence in New Zealand as well, and as it is a newly deregulated market we’re seeing similar kinds of opportunities that were here a few years ago,” Rumsey said.
“We’ve got a lot more IP now and can offer more value-added services to our customers,” Rumsey said. “Given the economic climate, we’re looking at products that are strategic for the current market, such as virtualisation, disaster recovery and unified communications.”
Rumsey said Telarus does not have dedicated New Zealand staff but may begin appointments in the New Year.
