AAPT becomes official NBN aggregator

The business-only telco has been certified by NBN Co

AAPT is now a certified National Broadband Network (NBN) service aggregator.

The company is one of the 14 ISPs already involved in the NBN mainland trials. It has been in negotiation with NBN Co for months and was recently granted certification to be an aggregator after rigorous tests.

AAPT’s new CEO, David Yuile, flagged the telco’s intentions of being a wholesale aggregator last month.

“We actually have fibre at around 68 per cent of the points-of-interconnect (POIs) already and we will eventually have 100 per cent POI coverage,” Yuile told ARN at the time. “AAPT as an independent network aggregation that will provide NBN, Telstra, AAPT and Optus services is a natural fit for our business.”

The telco sold its residential business to iiNet last year and now only deals with business clients.

As the NBN is rolled out, AAPT will be able to support more than 350 DSL exchanges, 180 mid-band enabled exchanges and fibre to around 1300 premises in metropolitan areas.
