Newly listed Aussie company Vocus has won a NZ$11.3 million deal with Vodafone New Zealand for international capacity.
Vocus will supply 100 per cent of Vodafone New Zealand's international capacity for a number of years once current contracts finish over the next six months. Vocus would not comment on the exact number of years.
Vocus has been one of three carriers supplying international capacity to Vodafone; stepping up to providing all of it is a significant upgrade to the relationship, according to Vocus.
"To award 100 per cent of their international capacity to a single provider demonstrates Vocus' track record of high performance, high availability, scalability and uncompromising customer service in the supply of wholesale telecommunications services," Vocus CEO James Spenceley said in a statement.
Vocus earlier this year appointed former Unwired CEO David Spence as chair and sold itself to the First Opportunity Fund as a way of listing itself on the Australian Stock Exchange.
