in brief Telstra has signed a three-year $4.5 million contract to provide telecommunications products and services to ME Bank.
Telstra will provide the bank with fixed and mobile voice and data services, as well as BlackBerry devices for "on-the-road" employees and senior executives.
Executive manager of IT at ME Bank, Shane Kuret, said in a joint statement issued today that the bank chose Telstra due to the breadth of coverage of its network.
"With more than 800 employees across over 20 locations across Australia, the network will be critical to improving business efficiencies, increasing employee productivity and providing great customer service as we continue to grow the business," Kuret said.
Telstra won the $4.5 million three-year contract over rival Optus, who previously held it.
