Clever scores $1.5m government broadband contract

Telco will provide fixed wireless broad services to client by March 2010

Clever Communications (ASX:CVA) has nabbed a $1.5 million contract to provide fixed wireless broadband services over its national network.

The telco's wireless coverage extends to Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Adelaide. The deal was done through one of Clever’s channel partners but the company was unable to disclose the reseller nor the name of the client due to a confidentiality agreement.

Clever managing director, Scott Carter, said the users belonged in the local government sector.

“Predominantly, we have been strong in three sectors: Health, education and local government,” he said. “And if you think about the public space, there is us, which did $5.4 million on fixed wireless, and BigAir, which did $4.5m, this $1.3m contract is very significant.”

Clever will be designing and deploying the purpose-built network for the client, which is expected to be fully operational by March next year.

“Local government, by nature, have a lot of depots and yards that they need to connect up so fixed networks are very handy for that especially in areas where there is no terrestrial services,” Carter said.
