Voyager buys broadband provider Actrix

17 Nov 2016

Voyager, a growing New Zealand ISP and voice services provider, has announced that it is buying Wellington-based telecoms company Actrix. The deal, which came into effect on 31 October 2016, will add 10,000 primarily residential broadband customers to Voyager’s subscriber base. With its acquisition of Actrix, Voyager says it will now have combined group revenues of NZD24.0 million (USD17.0 million).

Although neither company is a leading player in New Zealand telecoms, Voyager CEO Seeby Woodhouse explained the need for customer-focused broadband services: ‘Whilst the larger players tend to dominate the telecommunications landscape in New Zealand, we believe that there is a market for a small and friendly Kiwi telecommunications company.’ Voyager, which began as a strictly business user-focused broadband and voice provider, has recently expanded into the residential segment, whilst along the way acquiring other New Zealand internet firms such as Net24, 1st Domains and Register Direct.
