Telecommunications provider TPG Telecom has signed a new agreement with National Australia Bank (NAB) to provide fixed and mobile network services to the bank.

Under the agreement TPG will deliver fixed network services across NAB’s corporate offices, business banking centres and branches, with Vodafone providing mobile connectivity to the majority of the NAB workforce.

TPG Telecom Chief Operating Officer, Craig Levy said the agreement “demonstrates the benefits of the merger that created TPG Telecom”.

“Connectivity and technology are an integral part of NAB’s operations, and there are huge benefits from having all services and support in one place. We combine decades of expertise across mobile and fixed technology to deliver market leading services and solutions for our enterprise customers.

“The TPG Telecom team is tremendously proud to partner with NAB and be able to deliver our market-leading services. We believe that the Vodafone mobile network and the TPG fibre network, augmented by the NBN, will deliver NAB’s requirements and provide reliable and cost-effective connectivity.” Levy concluded.
