ASX-listed ISP, iiNet (ASX:IIN), has landed a two-year whole-of-government Internet services agreement with the Tasmanian Government.
The deal, which also incorporates optional one-year extensions, will see the ISP provide Internet services for most government departments as well as 36 customers such as local councils that use the government’s buying power to access competitive Internet access rates.
The financial terms of the deal haven't been disclosed.
It the Government’s first purchase through its Networking Tasmania III project to deliver and support the Tasmanian Cloud, Minister for Information Technology and Innovation, Michael Ferguson, said.
iiNet landed the deal through TMD, which is a division of Tasmania’s Department of Premier and Cabinet, which also provides whole-of-government communications and business solutions.
iiNet will be required to build additional fibre optic links to connect its Hobart datacentre with the Tasmanian Government’s core network.
The latest win comes on the back of iiNet's South Australian brand, Internode landing an agreement to provide the South Australian Government's gCloud service, providing some agencies with access to Infrastructure-as-a-Service, eliminating the need for them to acquire, own and operate servers, licences, software, and datacentres.
