UnisonFibre Announces New Retail Partner

UnisonFibre Announces New Retail Partner

Wednesday 3 April 2014 – UnisonFibre has this week announced that customers will have a new option for fibre services to their business, after signing a retail agreement with telecommunications provider, Snap.

UnisonFibre General Manager, Mike McGarvey said the partnership would offer Hawke’s Bay, Taupo, and Rotorua customers a competitively priced option for ultra-fast business broadband and phone packages.

“We’re very excited to announce our partnership with Snap. We want to ensure that our customers have a range of competitively priced, ultra-fast broadband providers to choose from, which can support our value of delivering a high quality and reliable service. Snap’s service commitment and Lightwave UFB packages support those core values.”

Snap Business GM, Charlie Boyd said UnisonFibre was a natural fit for the Company.

“Snap has built a reputation on working with the best national and local network providers, and UnisonFibre’s track record for network excellence, high quality deployment capability, and network service levels makes them a natural partner for Snap in the business and enterprise market.

“We are now able to offer our users greater connectivity options across the state-of-the-art UnisonFibre network, with improved service levels, more flexible bandwidth options and in-region support.”

The signing of a retail agreement with Snap follows a string of milestones for Hawke’s Bay-owned UnisonFibre. The company recently celebrated connecting its 500th customer, followed by a record month for new connections in February.

“With the major network-build completed last year, we’ve been able to shift our focus to organically growing the network alongside our retail partners. It’s fantastic to see both business and residential customers joining our network and benefiting from the quality and speed of a fibre connection, and the additional products and services enabled by fibre”, said Mr McGarvey.
