A multidisciplinary team from Allens - which spanned the firm's Property, M&A, Competition, and Technology, Media & Telecommunications teams - advised on all aspects of the transaction, including the tender process, transaction documents and regulatory hurdles.

'We are delighted to have again worked with Development Victoria on the sale of this significant asset,' said Partner Michael Graves.

'The sale will help Development Victoria improve its focus on urban renewal as well as giving consumers a greater choice of ISPs.'

The sale closed on 21 December 2017.
