Telstra Velocity is now part of Opticomm: Here's what that means
Telstra Velocity is now part of Opticomm. It uses Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) technology that brings high-speed internet connection, phone, and TV services on a single connection.
As part of ongoing efforts to improve network and services for customers, Telstra Velocity consolidated into the Opticomm Networks brand.
Nothing will change for existing customers - their connections will still work the same, and they will continue to be supported by the same support team they’ve always dealt with.
At Compare Broadband, we have connected customers to the Opticomm Networks and if you want to learn more, contact us and get connected.
