Wireless newcomer BigAir plans to make a move into the 3G mobile broadband market. CEO Jason Ashton said the company will soon announce a wholesale deal with a 3G network provider.

According to reports in The Australian, the deal ‘would allow BigAir to fill a gap in its service offering that the company had hoped to fill by acquiring Commander’s iBurst wireless broadband network from its liquidator’.

Ashton has indicated the company’s main aim was to provide a competitively priced alternative.

Says Ashton: “Our 3G plans will be priced competitively with the mobile carrier’s retail offerings. However, we are wholesaling the service from a mobile network so unfortunately we will not have as much flexibility as we do with our own fixed wireless offerings.”
