Symbio's New Zealand Expansion Thursday 28 April 2016 @ 17:18

We’re expanding our New Zealand operation with the rollout of a new nationwide Symbio IP voice network. Already an industry leader in Australia, Symbio will now invest in building its New Zealand network, providing wholesale voice capabilities to service providers and over-the-top application players.

According to CCO of parent company MNF Group, Jon Cleaver, Symbio will service a gap in the New Zealand market that’s been neglected by industry leaders.

“We’re finding that the big telcos are focused on their own growth, and few are developing the capabilities at wholesale level to support the wave of OTT players that are entering the marketing and shaping the future of the industry,” said Jon Cleaver.

Symbio has been delivering call termination and number hosting services in New Zealand since 2008. After adding New Zealand-based global voice operator TNZI to the MNF Group family last year, we believe now is the right time to scale up Symbio activities across the ditch in order to offer service providers and OTT players a next generation wholesale provider.

The Symbio NZ operation will be led by Auckland-based Steven Norman who brings over 25 years of experience in the New Zealand domestic telco market. Steve Norman has previously worked with the Number Administration Deed (NAD) and the New Zealand Telecommunications Forum (TCF) committees, working closely with consumers and regulators alike.

Our agile solutions provide a real point of difference for customers and we look forward to taking our business in New Zealand to the next level – stay tuned for more updates in this exciting development.
