Southern Cross Cables will upgrade iiNet’s international bandwidth to 200Gbps, 10 times the current 20Gbps capacity, iiNet said.
“The multi-year agreement increases iiNet’s international bandwidth capacity and strengthens the ability to provide increased levels of content, applications and enhanced services in a cost effective manner in the move towards the NBN,” iiNet said.
No financial terms were disclosed. The deal is good until 2025, iiNet CTO John Lindsay told Computerworld Australia. It's part of a move by iiNet into the international market following the acquisition of Internode, he said.
“The continuation of our growth strategy following the acquisitions of TransACT and Internode has cemented our position as the second largest DSL provider in Australia,” said iiNet CEO Michael Malone. “This growth has translated into improved supply agreements and commercial returns, making way for the delivery of even more innovative products and services.”
