Macquarie Telecom has signed a A$34 million exclusive agreement with Optus to deploy mobile services, including 5G, in Australia. The deal combines Macquarie’s Net Promoter Score (NPS) proven customer service with Optus’ world-class mobile network.
The decision follows a comprehensive, strategic review of mobile solutions, and will see Macquarie offer numerous key services to Australian enterprises including:
• 5G connectivity and speeds: Providing flexibility, faster speeds and greater capacity across multiple devices, fully managed and supported in Australia by Macquarie’s dedicated customer and engineering teams
• Wi-Fi calling: Extends full coverage and network access across all Wi-Fi areas
• Voice over LTE (VoLTE): A network standard enabling businesses to use high-speed 4G data and voice in tandem on devices at any time
• Coverage: New tools to enable customers to make coverage decisions
Due to the increasing emphasis on mobility and 5G, Macquarie plans to expand its mobile business and hire new staff over the next three years. This continues the company’s unwavering commitment to only provide service from and hire in Australia.
“2020 changed the way Australians work forever. By providing 5G connectivity along with business grade nbn (national broadband network), we can ensure Australian businesses can work from more places than ever before,” said Luke Clifton, Group Executive, Macquarie Telecom.
