Optus nets $160 million with Dodo deal

Old partners renew wholesale contract

Optus and Dodo have renewed their wholesale relationship with a four-year contract worth $160 million.

The companies have worked together since 2007 and Optus will continue to provide mobile, voice and mobile broadband services to Dodo.

According to a statement by Optus wholesale managing director, Vicki Brady, Dodo is a key wholesale partner for Optus and the new contract will facilitate the growth of its business.

“We are delighted with the performance of our mobile business which continues to be supported by Optus’ ongoing mobile network investment to sustain the rollout of our products,” Dodo managing director, Larry Kestelman, said in a statement.

The deal rounds off a smooth and quiet year for Dodo, which had encountered bad publicity in recent years.

In 2008, the Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA) launched a formal investigation into the company after it allegedly breached the Telecommunications Act for its handling of customer complaints. Later that year, Dodo was fined $147,400 for contacting people listed on the Do-Not-Call register.
