Analyst: Paul Budde


TransACT Communications Pty Limited was a Canberra-based, privately owned company that built and operated high-speed broadband communications infrastructure across the Australian Capital Territory region, including Queanbeyan and other surrounding towns in southern New South Wales. The network was under consideration by NBN Co as part of the NBN rollout across Australia. In November 2011, agreement was reached for the company to be bought by iiNet for $60 million.

The company delivers quad-play communications services in the ACT that include:

  • Voice and internet services;
  • High-speed broadband data;
  • Subscription TV services;
  • Internet Protocol TV (IPTV);
  • A real-time VoD service; and
  • Mobile cellular services.

TransACT also owned Victorian carrier Neighbourhood Cable that operates a HFC network in Ballarat, Geelong and Mildura. NCL delivers similar triple-play communications services, excluding real-time Video-on-Demand. In 2010 Neighbourhood Cable completed an upgrade of its network from DOCSIS 2 to DOCSIS 3 and delivers 100Mb/s internet services in Ballarat and Geelong.

In 2011 the company has a FttP network in greenfield estates across the ACT, and operates a data centre that enabled it to be selected as a participant in the Ready Now Panel for Data Centre Facilities that is managed by the Australian Government Information Management Office (AGIMO). It was also selected for whole-of-government mobile services panel in 2011, (see chapter 6.4 for more information).

This report was archived in 2012 as TransACT is now a subsidiary of iiNet. For more recent information on the company and iiNet, see separate report at:
