In a recent news release, Macquarie Telecom announced it is abandoning Australia’s best mobile network – the Telstra network – for a new partnership with Optus to provide mobile carriage to its customers.
This underlying technology change poses an interesting question:
Are MacTel customers happy with this switch in mobile carrier and technology?
As its customers do not have a say on the underlying mobile service, the assumption is that MacTel customers won’t care how mobile services are provided as long as they get what they pay for. imei is here to help – we have direct access to Telstra’s back-of-house mobile systems so we can provision, port, and manage Telstra mobile service giving access to 4G / 4GX and 5G performance across Australia.
Well – at imei, we have already heard from many Macquarie Telecom mobile customers – former Telstra mobile customers that had moved their mobile services to Macquarie Telecom – that want to get back onto the Telstra network. The prevailing feeling is that once MacTel make the switch to Optus, they will no longer be provided the quality of network they were promised. Some have even expressed that they only moved to MacTel in the first place BECAUSE MacTel mobile was delivered on the Telstra network, they would not have moved across without it.
We also provide a Lifecycle Management service for mobile devices from procurement to provisioning to staging and distribution, all the way to end-user support, repairs, MDM, and decommissioning. We look after it all so you and your people can get on with other things; and we do provide our services with the customer at the centre – we have a +80 NPS to prove it.
Call or email imei to discuss getting back onto Australia’s best mobile network, and how we can help manage your mobile communications.
