AAPT is a telecommunications provider 100% owned by New Zealand Telecom. It owns and operates its own national voice and data network across Australia. This includes 11,000km of interstate fibre, its own data centres in major capital cities, fibre access to 1,300 buildings and mid-band Ethernet in over 1820 exchanges. AAPT has access to DSL coverage in over 370 exchanges focused on the major Australian cities and large metropolitan areas.
The benefit of owning infrastructure is that AAPT is independent on reselling services from Telstra when compared to non-infrastructure or limited infrastructure competitors.

AAPT’s upgraded network enables it to leverage its nationwide transmission and extensive access network. Complementing this, the access network has been upgraded to deliver ADSL2+ and high-speed Ethernet, significantly enhancing AAPT’s internet delivery capacity.
