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.
The company is aiming to expand its customer base through offering new services including MeTV, an IPTV service with FetchTV. It has expanded mobile coverage, is refarming 2G to 3G, has launched 4G services and has signed an agreement with NBN Co to operate satellites to provide rural broadband coverage. These new and additional services will allow Optus to gain new subscribers across its coverage areas and extend their availability to more remote and regional communities.
The number of wireless broadband subscribers continues to grow rapidly, delivering higher data revenue. BuddeComm believes that given market saturation the rate of growth for these returns will slowly diminish. The takeover of Vividwireless from Seven Media boosted the amount of 4G spectrum available, increased the number of subscribers and consolidated market share in markets where Vividwireless operates.
