BlueCube has signed a deal to provide broadband services to the state of WA for $5.9 million.
The $5 million deal with Telstra will see BlueCube provide three new high-speed services to WA and the ACT in 2020.
The new services are being launched in the Western Australia city of Perth, which has a population of about 100,000.
BlueCube chief executive Mike Ketcham said the investment would bring about 10,000 new broadband customers in WA.
“We have invested more than $1 billion over the past five years in high-capacity broadband networks across WA and are proud to see that BlueCube is now joining forces with Telas in the new BlueCube service area,” he said.
“This partnership will enable the BlueCube Group to expand its network in Western Australia by providing broadband services that meet the needs of more than 100,00 residents and businesses across the state.”
Mr Ketchamp said the agreement would also see the Bluecube Group provide other services including telemedicine and the ability to access the internet on demand.
Mr Kettle said the $5m investment would allow the Blue Cube Group to provide new services such as telemedics and internet access to residents.
“In addition to delivering a high-performance network, BlueCube will continue to expand the company’s footprint in the area, working with community partners and delivering high-value broadband services,” he added.
