Pacific Internet wins first big voice deal

By
Harvey World Travel has selected Pacific Internet (Australia) to provide voice and data services to its Sydney based international head office and to as many as 350 of its franchisees across Australia in a deal worth over $2 million per annum.

Pacific Internet already supplies business-grade broadband connections to 245 HWT franchise sites, to many of the company's teleworkers and also to the company's head office. According to Pacific Internet, it was invited to tender for the business as HWT's previous fixed line telephony contract came to an end.

Dennis Muscat, Pacific Internet's managing director, said: "With close to 2000 PSTN lines, HWT will become our largest voice customer. We will also connect their ISDN lines and 13 and 1300 numbers...HWT is the first major group to take advantage of both Pacific Internet's voice and data offerings."

Pacific Internet noted that "The solution also offers the promise of an easy transition to VoIP in the future."

Pacific Internet started offering voice services only last year when it announced in March an agreement to resell services provided by switchless reseller Orion Telecommunications/Southern Cross Telco.

However in November it acquired T3 Communication Partners Pty Ltd and all its subsidiaries. T3's core business was providing fixed line telephony services to small-to medium sized businesses. The privately owned company commenced operations in 2002 and, according to Pacific Internet, had consistently recorded strong revenue and profit growth. Turnover in FY 2005 was in excess $12.7 million.

The company indicated to iTWire at time that its agreement with Orion would be reviewed in light of the T3 acquisition.
