Sharing the Spirit
We’re an ASX listed (ST1) provider of Sky-Speed Internet, Managed IT Services and cloud-based solutions for small to medium-sized businesses (SMEs). Since 2005, we’ve been a disruptor in the telco industry – our fixed-wireless network now spans Australia’s east coast, providing SMEs with services to take their IT to the cloud and back again across our super-fast Sky-Speed network.
We believe that not only do Australian businesses deserve better, faster, more reliable Internet, they also need a team that can support their IT needs. That’s why we’re a one-stop shop built to provide SMEs with all the IT services they need, so they can focus on what they do best: running their business.
