- TPG is serious in developing wireless network which creates an even faster internet connection with wider coverage compared to fibre.
- TPG Telecom plans to by-pass the NBN home wireless solutions and turned to Craig Levy, a veteran executive in the telecom industry, to spearhead this project.
- Levy is set to lead the group’s on-net strategy aimed to bring more customers onto the company’s owned infrastructure.
Home wireless solutions spark something significantly interesting for consumers. With the roll-out of NBN Co’s fibre optics, the internet has become better and faster. However, TPG is serious about developing wireless networks. This creates an even faster internet connection with wider coverage compared to fibre.
TPG is one of the leading fixed broadband providers in Australia. The company offers products backed by world-class fibre and next-generation networks, providing a diverse range of communication services to residential users, small and medium enterprises, government, large corporate enterprises and wholesale customers.
With this move, TPG is giving Levy a newly-created role of group executive for business development. His responsibility will be the group’s on-net strategy that includes wireless home network. Last month, Levy led the launch of the group’s 5G home internet product and is currently helping build out its 4G home wireless offering, according to TPG CEO Inaki Berroeta. Berroeta also said that “he (Levy) will be responsible for leading the increased focus on this significant opportunity area and driving continuous innovation to meet customer’s needs in a rapidly changing environment.”
Since joining TPG under the leadership of the company’s founder David Teoh in 2003, Levy was closely involved in the development of its DSL, NBN and FTTB businesses. He retains a senior leadership position at TPG Telecom, as he is one of the few executives left with the company before it merged with Vodafone last year.
Levy is set to lead the group’s on-net strategy aimed to bring more customers onto the company’s owned infrastructure, Berroeta said. This appointment on Levy indicates that fixed wireless will play a vital role in this company’s strategy. The company does not even have plans of replacing the COO position currently held by Levy, a TPG Spokesperson told CommsDay.
Joining TPG is former Vodafone Czech Republic vice president for B2B Jonathan Rutherford as group executive for enterprise and government. Berroeta said, “the enterprise team is making good in-roads in the market, and Jonathan’s twenty years of experience will enable him to step into the role and build on this momentum.” TPG is recently hiring a new breed of young executives to fill in seats in their sales, product and marketing to build their enterprise. To date, the company holds the number 1 spot for NBN Enterprise Ethernet sales.
Meanwhile, Ana Bordeianu, former acting group executive for enterprise and government, will be leading a newly created division for customer operations and shared services as the group executive. According to Berroeta, “Ana has a strong track record in delivering exceptional customer service, including driving Vodafone’s low complaints rate, and will now have responsibility for ensuring a consistent customer experience across our brands.” He added, “working closely with Group Executive Consumer Kieren Cooney, Ana and her team will work to drive household growth with an enhanced end-to-end customer journey.”
