iTelecom Wholesale, however will resell the service to other retail service provider, not direct to end users.
Telstra said: "We are also in discussions with other wholesale customers about our 3G product and the level of interest in our offer is encouraging. This offer is Phase one of Telstra Wholesale's 3G offering. Phase two - expected later in 2012, will provide traditional resellers and fully virtual operators - supporting prepaid, postpaid and wireless broadband."
iTelecom Wholesale's chief technology officer, Bruno Giger, said: "Telstra Wholesale's postpaid mobile solution...will underpin our mobile virtual network enabler (MVNE) platform and provide a mobile virtual network operator (MVNO) solution to retail service providers."

"The deal will enable iTelecom Wholesale to wholesale Telstra services enabling fixed and mobile communications providers, internet service providers, resellers and broadcast organisations to access wholesale voice, data and mobile services on the Telstra network," the company said.
