iiNet Limited (IIN) has announced a significant international capacity supply agreement with Southern Cross Cables Limited for the upgrade from 20Gbps to 200Gbps of fully protected diverse path international bandwidth capacity. The multi-year agreement increases iiNet’s international bandwidth capacity and strengthens the ability to provide increased levels of content, applications and enhanced services in a cost effective manner in the move towards the NBN. The agreement extends iiNet’s relationship with Southern Cross Cables Limited, supplier of the fastest and most secure international bandwidth from Australia and New Zealand into the USA.
iiNet’s Chief Executive Officer, Michael Malone, said the agreement was further evidence of the benefits that come as a result of delivering on the iiNet strategy. “The continuation of our growth strategy following the acquisitions of TransACT and Internode has cemented our position as the second largest DSL provider in Australia. “This growth has translated into improved supply agreements and commercial returns, making way for the delivery of even more innovative products and services,” Mr Malone said.
iiNet is Australia’s second largest DSL Internet Service Provider (ISP) and the leading challenger in the telecommunications market. It employs more than 2600 inquisitive staff across four countries and support over 1.7 million broadband, telephony and Internet Protocol TV (IPTV) services nationwide.
