Internode mulling mobile voice services

10 Dec 2009

Australian broadband provider Internode has revealed its plans to introduce mobile voice services next year, according to local news source CRN. The report cites comments from Internode’s product manager, Jim Kellett, and suggests that the telco plans to initially offer a resold, SIM-only mobile voice service in the first half of 2010. ‘It will be just another way [to] add another one of your services to Internode,’ Kellett said, adding, ‘We would just be rebilling the Optus service.’ In addition, Kellett revealed that Internode would likely only offer post-paid services, claiming that it would fit better with the company’s strategy.

As reported by CommsUpdate in July 2009, Internode introduced a fixed line service along similar lines, revealing it would offer its NodeLine service by using Telstra’s wholesale fixed line connections.
