Sydney, November 14 2012 – Australia's leading business telecommunications infrastructure company AAPT today announced it would purchase NEC Australia’s Nextep DSL business as part of a long-term strategic Alliance between the two organisations.

Under the Alliance agreement, both parties will work together on several partnership opportunities, leveraging AAPT’s extreme performance network and NEC’s world-class technology and managed ICT portfolio.

AAPT will also acquire the Nextep DSL business of NEC, confirming its position as a leading independent provider of wholesale broadband services. Nextep is a wholesale carriage service provider delivering broadband services to urban, metropolitan and regional areas.

“The potential of this partnership with NEC is an exciting addition to our very successful Alliance program, aiming to give customers best-of-breed, pre-integrated solutions of technology, managed ICT and networks from the respective experts in each field,” said AAPT CEO David Yuile.

“AAPT is delighted to welcome all the Nextep customers and is confident, given our extensive broadband experience, they will continue to be well served,” he said.

The acquisition, which is subject to several standard sales conditions, is expected to be completed by 30 November 2012.
