Vodafone advances into Australia wireline market with OTT, femtocell services

Vodafone plans to make a big splash in the competitive Australian telecom market by offering a set of new wireline-based services that complement its wireless services suite.

Although it does not have as much experience in delivering wireline services in Australia as it does in the Netherlands and Germany, the service provider believes that offering a full suite of wireless and wireline services could be the recipe for success.

Part of its initial wireline trial will include over the top video services and femtocells--two services that will enable it to differentiate itself from other competitors.

Currently, the mobile-centric service provider has been offering traditional data and video services over the Reggefiber's Fiber to the Home network in the Netherlands.
