“Acquiring Nextel’s well-established operations will be instantly accretive to Vonex’s customer base, carrier relationships, recurring revenue and earnings,” Vonex managing director Matt Fahey said.

“Nextel will empower Vonex to drive value for our wholesale and retail customers through new products and expertise, and it provides us with a highly capable team on the ground through whom we can capitalise on tremendous growth opportunities in the Sydney and wider NSW market.

“We look forward to rapidly integrating Nextel’s operations into Vonex’s fast-growing existing business.”
