Sydney ISP signs exclusive Optus NBN wholesale deal

Optus Wholesale has signed an exclusive deal to provide wholesale NBN access to SpinTel via its residential broadband over NBN offering.

Optus will also offer ULL, voice, enterprise and carrier data services, along with pre-paid, post-paid and mobile broadband to SpinTel, a Sydney internet service provider.

Optus is offering layer-2 wholesale aggregation to all 121 permanent NBN points of interconnect and access. The Optus deal allows SpinTel to compete in the NBN market without having to deploy its own infrastructure. 

"Optus had been rounding out its wholesale offering for partners looking to access the NBN. As the NBN surpasses more than one million households nationally, partners want access to that market via a single, carrier-grade network without an exhaustive investment outlay. Our wholesale solution delivers that access," said Optus Wholesale head of marketing and strategy John Castro.

He added that the telco had improved service connections and management of faults.

SpinTel managing director Liam Bal said: "SpinTel is pleased to continue our wholesale relationship with Optus and we look forward to leveraging the NBN to grow our business through both the migration of existing customers to NBN, and for new customers looking for an alternative provider to support their telecommunication needs."

SpinTel is a telco and internet services provider founded in 1996 that offers mobile, phone and broadband services.

In November 2015, the ISP was in trouble with the Australian Communications and Media Authority for allowing silent line customers' details to be published in several phone directories.
