This latest contract continues our commitment to supporting critical communication infrastructure for the benefit of communities.

"Under our Visionstream brand, our business has worked on the nbn for over a decade", explained Tim Harwood, Ventia's Group Executive - Telecommunications.

The team has supported the national rollout of the network since the beginning, and for the past seven years has also provided network restoration services."

Work under the new Unified Field Operations Agreement (Unify Networks) will commence later this month and will encompass network restoration, network optimisation, alternate power systems, routine maintenance and urgent work directions. Ventia will provide these services across various fibre (FTTN, FTTP, FTTB and FTTC), copper and HFC network technologies.

"We are excited by the opportunity to continue supporting, maintaining and improving the NBN network," said Neil Barnes, GM - Network Operations and Assurance, who will lead the team delivering these services.

There is a real sense of purpose within the team. We know how important connectivity is to NBN Co and the community; so be it planned upgrades or emergency restoration of a service following floods, bushfires or accidental damage, our crews are on-hand to help."

This latest contract award follows Visionstream (now Ventia) being named NBN Co's Supplier of the Year for the past two years.
