Optus Wholesale has signed an exclusive three year wholesale mobile deal with Vocus, ‘reinvigorating' the relationship between the companies.

The deal, which extends to Vocus' Dodo and iPrimus consumer brands and the SMB Commander brand, is an extension of Optus' 11-year relationship with M2 Group, which merged with Vocus in February.

The new deal takes effect from July.

Rob Parcell, Optus Wholesale managing director, dubbed the deal a ‘terrific win' for Optus Wholesale.

“It's a rejuvenation of our relationship and we are looking forward to further evolving and developing our relationship with Vocus,” Parcell says.

He says Optus has significantly invested in its mobile network – to the tune of more than $1 billion in the past 10 years – to deepen and expand coverage.

“It is through these investments we are delivering coverage depth and breadth across metropolitan and regional locations nationally, particularly in the mobile space,” he says.

“Partners need to continually adapt to the competitive landscape and to support them, we have focused on delivering billing, service and technology improvements resulting in increased efficiency and supported their needs for more flexibility around customer pricing.
