SINGAPORE -- Pacific Internet Limited (Nasdaq: PCNTF - News), Asia Pacific's largest telco-independent Internet Communications Service Provider by geographic reach announced that its Australian subsidiary, Pacific Internet (Australia), is meeting growing demand for its Premium Broadband DSL offering by partnering with Optus. The deal expands geographic reach of Pacific Internet Australia's existing range by 45%, making its popular premium grade broadband available to more Australian businesses than ever before.

Dennis Muscat, Pacific Internet Australia's managing director, said: "Over the past 12 months we've experienced a 40% increase in uptake for our Premium Broadband DSL connectivity as technically advanced Australian small and medium businesses look beyond the regular DSL network for enhanced speeds and performance assurances. We're pleased to see businesses running mission critical broadband applications, such as private networks and Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP), now adopting more sophisticated broadband."

"By partnering with Optus, we can now offer customers access to a very large premium network in Australia, reaching the majority of Australian businesses with significant coverage across capital cities and key regional centers," he said.

David Katz, Director of Sales, Optus Wholesale, said Optus is pleased to be working with Pacific Internet to provide affordable high-speed business class broadband access services to Australian businesses.

"Broadband is a key aspect to businesses working smarter and when compared to standard DSL, Optus' premium network offers significant performance advantages," he said.
