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 and subscription TV.
Into 2011/12 the company is set to expand its customer base as new services including the provision of IPTV though FetchTV, a record now TV service for mobiles, expanded mobile coverage in Tasmania, and an agreement to provide interim satellite services in the National Broadband Network. These new services will allow Optus to gain new subscribers across its coverage areas and to remote and regional communities.
