Streaming service Deezer is shutting its Australian office, but has stressed to users that the service will stay up and running down under. “We’re a fast growing business and we’ve decided to close the office in Australia for organisational reasons, including the fact we’ve just signed telco deals across Asia Pacific,” the company tells Billboard. “It’s important to say that this decision will not affect Australian users in anyway. Our editor will still be there making recommendations and labels and partners won’t change. We’ll still be offering the same great experience to music fans.” The changes will see Deezer’s MD of Australia and New Zealand, Thomas Heymann, leave the company. As we noted earlier in the week when Apple’s iTunes Radio went live in Australia, the country is one of the most competitive in the world right now for streaming music, with dozens of services available.
