Overview of Sumo
Sumo, energy and telecom provider, first came to the Australian energy market in 2016, with services starting in Victoria where they provided electricity to customers in the region.
In 2018, Sumo opened up service in New South Wales and in 2019 began offering gas to customers in Victoria.
