Opal working with ‘select number’ of distributors
Opal Telecom, the b2b division of Carphone Warehouse’s TalkTalk Group, is working with a ‘select number of distributors’, including EBS, and has said it will work with others in the future.
The move follows an announcement last week that Opal had partnered with Avenir Telecom to offer a new fixed-line business broadband package.
Opal serves 100,000 business customers and works with around 350 wholesale partners nationwide. The Avenir deal is the first time Opal has ever partnered with a b2b-only airtime distributor.
Avenir’s dealer base will now roll out Opal’s ‘Premium Grade’ broadband service for business. Each new installation will include a business-grade router with security licence and static IP address.
