Maxnet rebrands as Vocus Communications
Posted on 23-Aug-2012 14:10 | Tags Filed under: News



As part of its plan to bring better internet and data centre services to New Zealand, Trans-Tasman telecommunications provider Vocus Communications Ltd has announced it is formally rebranding its recent acquisition and wholly owned subsidiary Maxnet.

From 27 August, the two Maxnet data centres, website, and other company collateral will be rebranded as Vocus Communications. The company will keep the Maxnet brand for its New Zealand retail ISP business.

Jade Software and Konica Minolta will be two of the first New Zealand-based companies to use the newly branded Vocus services, with the former recently signing a major data centre contract. Konica Minolta, an existing Maxnet customer, will be launching a new cloud document management service hosted on Vocus cloud technology.

Since acquiring Maxnet in June 2012, Vocus CEO James Spenceley says a number of fast-growing Australian customers have started using the company’s New Zealand data centres.

“We are excited to be bringing together all of our data centre, international connectivity and cloud services into the Vocus brand,” says Vocus CEO James Spenceley. “This will make it easier for our customers on both sides of the Tasman to access services in the different countries.”

Vocus has been supplying international capacity to New Zealand and Australian telecommunication companies and Internet Service Providers for five years. During this time, the company has been responsible for dramatically decreasing the cost of connecting New Zealand to the rest of the world by offering competitive international internet connectivity and affordable Trans-Tasman connectivity.

“We have a reputation of breaking down industry barriers, and we are excited about the opportunities to do the same in New Zealand - and the best way to carry on doing this is to align our customers, products and staff under the one Trans-Tasman brand," says Mr Spenceley.
