Telstra has signed a wholesale supply agreement with Woolworths.
Telstra wholesale group executive, Stuart Lee, said the agreement brings together two Australian companies and would initially be focused on providing mobile services using parts of Telstra’s 3G network.
“We are very excited to be working with a leading Australian company like Woolworths. We see this relationship as an important development in the continued evolution of Telstra’s wholesale business," he said.
“Our wholesale product gives companies like Woolworths that want to operate as virtual network operators the network access and operating platform they need to offer mobile services direct to retail customers."
Woolworths’ head of telco, Jason Hair, said the relationship was the first step for Woolworths on the road to delivering a straightforward, high quality and value-driven service for our customers.
"We look forward to providing more details on our offer in the coming weeks. In offering mobile services, Woolworths will be able to offer a reach of 98.5 per cent of the Australian population and will use 850MHz and 2100MHz spectrum for high speed downloads," he added.
