Perth-based internet service provider iiNet has been appointed preferred national broadband network supplier by Tasmania’s Department of Police & Emergency Management.
iiNet said the upgrade to NBN services would be rolled out over a three-year period.
“The department’s decision to move to the NBN now makes it an early adopter of Australia’s newest transformational technologies,” iiNet chief business officer Greg Bader said.
“The upgrade is significant, with over half of the department’s police stations scheduled to access internet services through the NBN by 2014.”
iiNet has been providing the department with network services since 2010.
Commercial terms of the contract were not disclosed.
