TransACT joins NBN mainland trials

ACT-based company becomes the 14th ISP to join the trials

TransACT has become the newest ISP to join the National Broadband Network (NBN) mainland trials.

The ACT-based ISP joins 13 other companies| participating in the trial including AAPT, AARNet, Exetel, Internode, Optus, Telstra, iPrimus and most recently, Vodafone Hutchison Australia (VHA).

Five trial sites were announced in March: Armidale and Kiama in NSW, Wilunga in SA, Townsville in OLD and Brunswick in VIC.

Some customers are already connected to the NBN test services, including PCRange CEO, Raaj Menon.

TransACT is an old hand at fibre networks, having supplied fibre-to-the-curb and fibre-to-the-premise (FTTP) services to brownfield and greenfield sites respectively.

“We have been delivering FTTP voice, video and ISP solutions since 2007 so we are well suited to being an [ISP] on the NBN,” TransACT CEO, Ivan Slavich, said. “As an ISP on the NBN we will continue to deliver superior products and services to our customers, complementary to our existing networks in the ACT and regional Victoria.”

The ISP is currently finishing the on-boarding testing process with NBN Co to become NBN-ready. The process can take up to two to three months to complete and once that is done, TransACT will announce which areas it will connect its first customers on the NBN, according to Slavich.
