The acquisition is subject to "several standard sales conditions" and does not require regulatory approval, AAPT said. NEC and AAPT declined to give more details on the conditions.

"AAPT is delighted to welcome all the Nextep customers and is confident, given our extensive broadband experience, they will continue to be well served," said AAPT CEO David Yuile.

AAPT recently announced it is developing business broadband plans delivered through the NBN.
