Internet service provider iiNet has signed the first mobile virtual network operator agreement with Optus Wholesale, which will enable it to offer 4G wireless broadband services to customers.

Chief executive Michael Malone said the deal would allow 4G services to be offered to iiNet, Westnet, Netspace and Internode customers.

“It makes sense for us to introduce one of the fastest wireless broadband services available and it supports our growth strategy to offer more to each of our customers,” Mr Malone said.

Mr Malone said iiNet would launch its own range of 4G devices, including USB modems and Wi-Fi hotspots.

Product details and availability will be announced in coming months, once Optus has confirmed the launch date of its wholesale 4G services.

AT 12:40PM, WST, iiNet stocks were up 0.5 per cent, trading at $3.76.
