Dedicated NBN voice and data provider to small and medium businesses More Telecom has signed a $20 million two-year contract with Australia's fourth largest telecommunications company Vocus for the supply of NBN products and services.

More Telecom, with sister consumer business, Tangerine Telecom, also offers wholesale services to a number of other retail ISPs and IT partners in the SME and consumer space.

Vocus Wholesale chief executive, Mark Callander said “Vocus Wholesale has had a long term relationship with Andrew and Richard Branson, the founders of More Telecom and Tangerine Telecom.

“We have recently entered into a new deal that will ensure a competitive and sustainable NBN solution moving forward,” said Callander.

“Tangerine has shown tremendous growth in the NBN market and operates a strong business which we are excited to be a part of in the future.”

“This new agreement shows the ongoing commitment between our companies as we continue to deepen our partnership in the telecommunications industry.”

More Telecom says today’s announcement is proof that the B2B/B2C business model is “hugely successful in an NBN world, delivering more efficiency and faster speeds due to the balanced bandwidth loading between the business peak hours during the day and the consumer peak hours during the evening”.

Co-Founder, Andrew Branson said the deal allows for significantly improved plans for customers with more included bandwidth.

“We are particularly responsive to the market with Tangerine last week winning the Whistle Out Best Promotion 2019 Award, and this week we have launched a reduction in price of NBN 50 speed tier to $59.90 for the first 6 months,” said Branson.

Branson said More Telecom has invested heavily in building a strong sub-wholesale business, which offers a full white label solution to other telco and IT partners, allowing their wholesale partners to benefit from a full range of telecommunication and customer automation services. This includes NBN and hosted voice services, 7-day technical support, customer service and collection services and white label billing and customer communications.

Tangerine and More say they benefit from a local POP (Point of Presence) in every major city, reducing latency and ping times meaning “great NBN broadband for households and businesses right across Australia”.

Vocus is connected to all 121 NBN POIs (Points of Interconnect) across Australia, giving both More, Tangerine and their wholesale partners national NBN coverage.
