Kogan To Offer NBN Services Through Vodafone
Kogan is set to strengthen its partnership with Vodafone by offering fixed-line NBN services through the telco beginning next year.
As part of the newly announced agreements, Kogan will continue selling mobile services on the Vodafone network, and will begin offering fixed-line NBN services as well as mobile broadband services in the future.
The two companies have been working together since 2015, when Kogan launched its prepaid mobile plans on the Vodafone network.
“We are proud of the partnership between Kogan.com and Vodafone which represents the coming together of two challenger brands to deliver value and choice for consumers,” said David Shafer, Executive Director of Kogan.com.
“We’re thrilled to now extend our partnership with Vodafone to enable Kogan.com to offer great new services in mobile broadband and fixed-line NBN at the incredibly low prices that Aussies have come to expect from Kogan.com. Vodafone has been investing heavily to establish its own NBN infrastructure, and is set to roll-out its capability over the coming year,” Shafer said.
The partnership between the two companies will continue until at least 2022, followed by rolling two-year extensions with “significant incentives to continue the partnership at the end of the initial term, and at each extension” according to Kogan.
Kogan reported that 4.2% of its gross profit in the six months ending 31 December 2016 was attributed to Kogan Mobile, and in Q3 2017, Kogan Mobile’s gross profit increased by 50% on the previous quarter.
Information about Kogan’s NBN plans will be announced closer to the launch of services sometime in 2018.
