Dodo, iPrimus and Commander brands in new mobile deal.
Optus Wholesale has announced an exclusive three-year mobile agreement with Vocus Communications Limited (ASX:VOC) following a competitive pitch.
The 36 month agreement extends an 11-year relationship with M2 Group Limited, which merged with Vocus in February of this year, from their expiry date of July 2016, until 30 June 2019.
Optus Wholesale Managing Director Rob Parcell said the deal was a terrific win for Optus Wholesale and would extend services for Vocus’ renowned consumer brands – Dodo and iPrimus – as well as SMB brand, Commander.
“It’s a rejuvenation of our relationship and we are looking forward to further evolving and developing our relationship with Vocus.”
Mr Parcell said Optus had significantly invested in its mobile network to further deepen and expand coverage which has resonated strongly with Optus’ wholesale and branded customers.
“We have consistently invested in our network, with more than $1 billion annually over the past 10 years. It is through these investments we are delivering coverage depth and breadth across metropolitan and regional locations nationally, particularly in the mobile space.”
Mr Parcell said a continued focus on making it even easier for wholesale partners to do business with Optus had resulted in an uptick in positive customer sentiment.
“Partners need to continually adapt to the competitive landscape and to support them, we have focused on delivering billing, service and technology improvements resulting in increased efficiency, and supported their needs for more flexibility around customer pricing.”
Optus Wholesale is Australia’s largest wholesale mobile provider.
