DGtek acquires FG Telecom


Telecommunications infrastructure carrier DGtek has acquired FG Telecom. The acquisition will expand DGtek’s network coverage by over 25% in Melbourne, and will provide triple geography redundancy and diverse paths to Port Melbourne’s data centres.

DGtek has recently acquired FG Telecom, a fibre network company based in Port Melbourne and services business customers in the Melbourne central business district (CBD).

DGtek says the acquisition will expand its network coverage by over 25% across Melbourne.

FG Telecom CEO Dev Oza says that the DGtek acquisition has helped FG Telecom amalgamate with an organisation that upholds the same similar vision and values.

“It has grown the DGtek network footprint threefold.Throughout our existence, we have resisted acquisitions by the larger players in order to stay true to our mission of providing Aussie businesses with a real alternative to the cookie-cutter service that the larger corporations provide,” he says.

“Over the years, FG Telecom has proudly served businesses in Port Melbourne. The combination means we can extend our high-quality business services throughout Melbourne, capitalising on businesses returning to work that are eager for ultra-high speed fibre services,” he adds.

The acquisition will also position DGtek as the only network to provide triple geography redundancy and diverse paths to Port Melbourne’s major data centres, ensuring network stability and security against network dropouts in case of third-party damage.

DGtek says it is expanding its footprint around central and southeast Melbourne, and is well-placed to build its network throughout the city and throughout major areas in the country, including select regional sites, with a target to reach one million homes by 2024.

DGtek founder and CEO David Klizhov comments: “As we grow our fibre network in Melbourne and throughout Australia, it is vital that we continue to provide a high-quality service and ensure our network has the capacity to support Australia's unrelenting demand for high-bandwidth, ultra-low latency FTTP services.”

DGtek has also recently welcomed OptiComm former chief technology officer Stephen Davies as non-executive director and senior advisor. Davies’ telecommunications carrier experience spans more than two decades. He worked behind the scenes and manned the team that was responsible for building the first fibre-to-the-home infrastructure in Australia in 2001.
