Optus and Vocus extend partnership to drive growth in a 5G future

Optus Wholesale has today announced the execution of a five-year extension of its current Mobile Virtual Network Operator (MVNO) agreement with Vocus Group Limited (ASX: VOC, Vocus) which includes access to the Optus 5G network and future technologies.

The agreement builds upon the long-term partnership between Optus and Vocus brands Dodo, iPrimus and Commander. Engineered to drive growth for both businesses, the partnership provides a strong nationwide network and platform for Vocus to grow its mobile customer base across its various brands and a clear path for Vocus to access future 5G mobile services, to support the Vocus strategy to increase market share in Enterprise and Small to Medium Business segments.

John Castro, Managing Director (Acting), Optus Wholesale & Satellite, stated, We are delighted to extend our long-term partnership with Vocus and work with them as we deploy 5G services nationally.

Vocus Group Managing Director & CEO, Kevin Russell, stated, Our new partnership with Optus gives Vocus security in the knowledge of our access to market-leading future technologies as well as the flexibility to put attractive mobile propositions in market in a timely manner. We have a high degree of confidence in Optus leadership in 5G networks and our own potential to innovate and better cater to our customers in mobile, where we have historically had a sub-scale market share.
