Under the agreement, Sumo will introduce a “whole of house” offering which bundles Internet, telephone, gas and electricity for the home owners or small business operators.
In turn, Optus Wholesale will provide Sumo with residential broadband services over NBN, mobile broadband and home wireless broadband.
The agreement follows a move by energy provider Origin who started offering NBN broadband services on Optus’ network last week, along with Amaysim and Dodo Internet-energy bundling space.
“Even better, Sumo’s Internet packages are delivered to customers with month-to-month plans and no set-up fees. It couldn’t be simpler.”
Optus wholesale and satellite acting managing director John Casto said the partnership with Sumo “strengthens Sumo’s position in the competitive utility market by adding telco services to their mix – delivering even more to their value-seeking customers”.
“Sumo’s product offerings are well-placed for a customer segment who want simplicity and want to save on their household expenses."
