What Makes Spirit Internet “Different. Better”? | Spirit

What Makes Spirit’s Internet Network “Different. Better”?There’s a lot of confusion surrounding Australia’s telecommunications industry. It’s hard to know who exactly is selling what, whether they’re reselling something else, and whether any of it is actually any good. But when you’re running a business – or simply working for a company and trying to get your work done – you need an Internet connection that you can rely upon.While the Government have built the National Broadband Network (NBN), their model is geared predominantly towards residential customers. For businesses, there’s still a myriad of technology options from a range of providers.One of [...]

Forget the hype – Spirit customers are already getting 5G technology

Forget the hype – Spirit customers are already getting 5G technology Spirit Telecom launched Australia’s first 5G services technology in 2017 – ahead of high street giants and the NBN Our head-honcho of sky-speed Internet, Spirit CEO Geoff Neate, stirred the pot at the 2018 CommsDay Summit recently. He let Australia know that we are already providing Spirit customers technology that has now been ratified as part of 5G. Geoff then took things a little further by saying that 5G will not be available to Telstra and Optus customers until next year, while the 5G tech we are using (beamforming) has [...]

A History of Wireless Internet, and how we’ve used one of Australia’s greatest inventions to give the country super-fast internet.

A History of Wireless Internet, and how we’ve used one of Australia’s greatest inventions to give the country super-fast internet A brilliant Australian inventor, exploding black holes in space and Stephen Hawking. What a tale. Did you know that the work of a Sydney born, Australian engineer by the name of John O’Sullivan, led to the invention of wireless Internet? It’s a technology used by billions of devices around the world every day, and it all started right here, down-under. We’ve managed to build our own sky speed network thanks to John’s amazing legacy. But long before our start in 2005, [...]

Government Slams Higher Speed Network Recommendation

Recently, the Federal Government dismissed a Parliamentary recommendation calling for the NBN to use fibre-to-the-curb (FttC) or fibre-to-the-premises (FttP) technology for the remainder of its rollout, saying that they’ll stick with the current Multi Technology Mix (MTM) approach. You may be asking… ‘what does that mean?’ and moreover ‘what does that mean to me?’ Well to put it simply, it means that the NBN will continue to install relatively outdated technology that delivers slower and less reliable speeds. For a number of very technical reasons, new NBN customers will share speeds, which may struggle during peak hours – generally in the [...]

Is the NBN fit for Australian businesses?

Australian business owners know the importance of a stable Internet connection. The promise of the National Broadband Network (NBN) rolling out across the country suggested this need would be met with secure, fast and reliable connectivity. However, every week it’s another headline about the NBN and it generally isn’t particularly reassuring news. As businesses often have Internet usage requirements greater than home users, particularly bandwidth and reliability, they may find that researching options beyond the NBN for their technological and cloud-based application needs, time well spent.   Did you know that your business has an alternative to the NBN? At Spirit [...]

‘What I learned from Pivot Summit 2017’

We caught up with our Infrastructure Manager, Shaun Harrison, after the Pivot Summit last week to hear all about the event. Read what Shaun had to say about the Summit, Steve Wozniak, and the digital future below.     I was lucky enough to attend the 2017 Pivot Summit in Geelong on the 8th of December, representing Spirit as a Bronze Sponsor and WiFi partner. For everyone who couldn’t attend, I’ve put together my top 5 highlights. 1. Federal Mills Business Park is a stunning venue First up, I need to comment on the amazing work done by Cam Hamilton and [...]

Do I Have To Switch To The NBN?

I need the Internet. Do I have to switch to the NBN? There’s a lot of interest in the NBN currently, and with good reason. Australia has put up with slow Internet for far too long, and with an increasing desire to access a genuinely fast service, especially for streaming TV and music at home, or downloading and uploading large files at work, this has become a priority for many people. But the NBN is most definitely NOT the only way to access the Internet. In fact, Spirit has just been independently rated as Melbourne’s fastest Internet Provider[1]. So how has [...]

We’re Serious About Internet

Spirit Managing Director, Geoff Neate, spoke to Telecom Times last week about who Spirit is; and who we want to be in the High Speed Internet market. Geoff committed that we're not here to take on the NBN. We're a genuine alternative to the NBN, and we work to deliver the amazing speeds Australia deserves. "Where we go, where we enter into a particular market, be it a building or geographic expansion, we’re going to go in with a strategy that allows us to win. We win by providing better Internet - Serious Internet." What It Means To Have "Serious Internet" The [...]
