Overview of iPrimus
iPrimus is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Vocus Communications. First founded in 1997 through the acquisition of telecom service provider Axicorp, iPrimus was the first telecommunications provider to receive a license after the deregulation of the Australian telecommunications sector.
Since the beginning, iPrimus has remained one of Australia’s largest broadband providers. In 2019, iPrimus saw a rebranding of the company, stripping away their multiple services to give residential customers flexibility in their plans through simplicity.
iPrimus network coverage
iPrimus is a Mobile Virtual Network Operator (MVNO) which operates under the Optus Network. Due to this, iPrimus customers have the same coverage as Optus customers. The majority of this coverage is focused along the major cities including Adelaide, Sydney, Melbourne, and past Brisbane, as well as coverage over Tasmania and in and around Perth, covering in total approximately 98.5% of the Australian population.
This coverage should be expanding within the next six months, with customers getting the biggest expansion of coverage outside of Perth, as well as additional coverage in South Australia, New South Wales, and Queensland.
