Optus provides a range of communications services that include mobile, national and long-distance services, local and international telephony, business network services, internet and satellite services, subscription TV and digital media services.
Into 2012 the company is aiming to expand its customer base through new services. These include the provision of MeTV, an IPTV service with FetchTV, expanded mobile coverage in Tasmania, refarming 2G to 3G, the launch of 4G services and an agreement providing interim satellite services in the National Broadband Network. These new and additional services will allow Optus to gain new subscribers across its coverage areas and to more remote and regional communities.
The numbers of wireless broadband subscribers continues to boom rising 28% year-on-year in mid-2012 and is continuing to deliver higher data revenue, although as the market rises to saturation levels BuddeComm believes that the rising returns will slowly diminish. The takeover of vividwireless from Seven Media will boost the amount of 4G spectrum and subscribers and market share in the markets where vividwireless operates. The restaurant review company Eatability purchased by the company in mid-2012 will add a digital media and content service flavour to the company.
