New partnership takes NBN to regional Australia

Regional Australian communities could soon access high-speed, fibre-based NBN Enterprise Ethernet under a deal between Australian telecommunications carrier Vertel and provider Virtutel.

The companies — which have come together to resell the Ethernet throughout regional Australia — believe the move could help these communities realise their ‘smart cities potential’ and improve quality and equality of NBN access across Australia.

Vertel’s Commercial Director, Tony Hudson, said: “Virtutel’s NBN Enterprise Ethernet complements Vertel’s existing capability of providing connectivity to regional and remote areas of Australia, contributing to these communities’ sustained economic and social benefits, and the ubiquity of Virtutel’s NBN offering makes this goal achievable”.

Vertel provides critical network infrastructure across fringe metro, regional and remote Australia, which can be integrated with the national fibre network, while Virtutel offers a national NBN Enterprise Ethernet product that extends from all 121 Points of Interconnect and allows for symmetric speeds between 10 Mbps and 1 Gbps.
