Opal, better known as TalkTalk Group's business-to-business (B2B) division, has signed its first B2B-only airtime distributor in a bid to increase market share.
Andrew Hollingworth, director of wholesale at Opal, said: “The partnership came as a result of Opal providing Avenir with a premium broadband solution dedicated to business and backed by a market-leading support and commercial model.
“We are delighted with the contract with Avenir as its strong dealer base provides us with an excellent opportunity to increase our market share.”
Opal’s Premium Grade broadband service for business provides speeds of up to 24MB downstream, a 100GB usage allowance and guaranteed priority bandwidth for business traffic.
Each new installation includes a business-grade router with security license and static IP address.
Andy Tow, managing director of Avenir, said: “There could be no better partner than Opal to deliver Avenir's dealers with a compelling business broadband solution.
“We are continually developing our portfolio to enable our clients to better equip themselves in today's market and to benefit from increased revenue achieved outside of traditional mobile airtime offerings. This includes - but is by no means restricted to - accessories, broadband, applications and devices.”
