On Thursday, Swoop Holdings announced its wholly-owned subsidiary NodeOne, has secured a 5-year contract worth over $5m with Orro Group to provide NBN Enterprise Ethernet services across Western Australia.
The national provider of fixed wireless internet services to wholesale, business and residential customers said it has been working closely with NBN and Orro Group for some time on the deal. This solution will bring high-speed fibre connectivity to over 150 locations all over WA utilising NodeOne’s direct connectivity to all 14 NBN Points of Interconnect (POIs) across the State.
Alex West, CEO of Swoop noted that “NodeOne is the only WA based Retail Service Provider with direct connectivity to all the NBN POIs, and when you combine this with the great relationship we have with NBN and Orro Group, our local support and account management teams, it really gave us a unique offering”.
The rollout program is expected to be completed by the end of the first half of FY22.
David Povey, Managing Director, Orro WA said, “We have been working closely with the team at NodeOne for the last 12 months on this opportunity and we have been impressed by the level of professionalism and knowledge that the NodeOne team has displayed. NodeOne has a large local presence in Perth and regional WA and this has been a big factor in choosing NodeOne as our preferred NBN Retail Service Provider to deliver this important contract.”
Coming on the back of its recent listing, the contract supports the positioning of the group as a challenger Telco able to offer large multi-site solutions, at competitive rates, yet still offer the local service and support to differentiate from the Big Telcos.
