Telstra signs ADSL2+ wholesale deal with reseller gotalk

23 Feb 2009

itWire is reporting that Australian mobile and broadband reseller gotalk has inked a deal with incumbent Telstra to resell the latter’s ADSL2+services. Previously gotalk had exclusively offered broadband through a wholesale agreement with Telstra rival Optus. The new deal will allow the reseller to access more than 1,400 exchanges with ADSL2+ infrastructure, as well as a further 1,300 exchanges offering broadband connections at 8Mbps. gotalk has said it will specifically target ‘regional’ areas with the new increased coverage, with the new offers reportedly starting at AUD39.95 (USD25.79) per month. With the agreement set to begin officially on 2 March, gotalk CEO Steve Picton said, ‘gotalk is gearing up for what is expected to be high demand for its new services, and has also established bandwidth dedicated to gotalk customers between Tasmania and mainland Australia, including dedicated backhaul.’
