Aussie Broadband (ASX: ABB), one of the largest internet service providers in Australia, has announced the opening of a new call centre and business office in Perth.

The office is set to bring 160 jobs to the area in customer support, management, HR and warehouse roles.

Managing Director Philip Britt said the company was excited about opening an office along the west coast.

“Perth has a wealth of tech talent and we’ve got a number of positions that we’re looking to fill. For Aussie, this is a great culture fit because Perth people are laid back, friendly and enjoy a good belly laugh.”

Mr Britt added that Perth’s location allowed greater flexibility in regards to timezones while keeping jobs in Australia.

Additionally,  the new centre will feature a warehouse where hardware can be dispatched locally.

The new centre is the company’s third after two in Melbourne, the second of which was only opened in 2019, which Mr Britt said highlights the company’s recent rapid growth.

“It’s hard to believe that just over 18 months ago we opened an office in Lynbrook, in the outer South East of Melbourne. Since then, we’ve more than doubled our team – we now employ over 540 staff,”

“We’re looking forward to growing our team even further in Perth and expanding the Aussie Broadband family.

Dark fibre times

In other news, Aussie Broadband is undergoing the rollout of its privately-owned dark fibre network in WA, which includes Perth’s CBD. This network can offer up to 10GB per second for business customers with this increasing to 100GB for specialist applications.

“So far, around 8kms of 360 core network fibre cable has been installed by our delivery partners Dean Constructions and Lightsource Services, which will link Perth CBD at NextDC P2 to NextDC P1 in Malaga.”

Aussie Broadband has over 44,000 residential customers and 2,700 business customers in Perth.

The new facility is set to open in July.
