News Release 13th Dec 2017

TeamTalk to ensure continuity of resilient communications by partnering with
Tait Communications.

TeamTalk Limited (NZX: TTK), the publicly listed telecommunications services

communications services and solutions throughout New Zealand, today announced

Safety legislation along with the findings from the reviews following the
Christchurch and Kaikoura earthquakes mean many organisations are now
considering diversity across their communications portfolio and mobile radio
is critical in providing this service."

communications to its customers, as well as offering new services and
solutions that will enable TeamTalk to grow its revenues by reaching into the

not competed in but the new digital platform will open up new opportunities
including the capability to interconnect different networks.

roadmap of further integrated services that will be released over the next
few years that really excites us about this investment.  Our partnership with
Tait Communications and other integrators will allow us to be at the
forefront of new developments and enable New Zealand to gain access to these
leading technologies and solutions quickly.

interoperability testing as well as evaluation of different migration

"The selection of Tait reinvigorates a long partnership going back decades

forefront of mobile radio and have the largest Tait network in the world. I
am proud to be associated with this innovative company delivering leading
edge solutions to customers."

reflects that commitment."
