Nbn and Activ8me launch in regional areas including Keith.

Australian Private Networks (trading as Activ8me) has been operating for over 10 years and is 100% Australian owned.

Activ8me is delighted to announce that residents and businesses located in regional Australia are benefiting from radically improved Internet services from nbnTM.

 Activ8me initially entered the market as a satellite broadband provider recognising the critical need to connect people in rural areas.

This quickly positioned Activ8me as the largest satellite broadband provider in Australia, with more than 30,000 customers nationally and 45% market-share. 

With the introduction of nbn™ broadband, Activ8me now offers the latest innovation in satellite, wireless and fibre broadband and voice (VoIP) technology for Australians.

Activ8me was approved as one of the first nbn™ registered service providers in 2012. 

Activ8me also developed, installed and maintains innovative community phones, to improve remote Indigenous community access to essential telecommunications services under the Australian Government’s Remote Australia Strategies Programme.

Activ8me are pleased to see that the activations schedule for the Sky Muster™ nbn™ satellite service is on track and now running at full capacity.

This is a great achievement given the size and complexity of connecting so many properties across a massive geographic area in regional and remote Australia.

“Activ8me’s first official installation took place on 2nd May and we were inundated with orders, so it’s great to see the rate of connections has increased and the orders waiting for installation getting processed. 

“Even so, there are many more still in the pipeline and we are working with nbnTM to get these customers connected in an efficient and timely manner,“ said Activ8me’s GM Marketing, Ian Roberts

Additionally, there are now over 428,000 premises in Regional Australia serviced by nbnTM Fixed Wireless and the nbn Fibre-To-The-Node (FTTN) rollout is also beginning in country towns across Australia.

For example, FTTN will be available by the end of October in seven towns, and includes Keith in the Tatiara as well. 

“nbn’s™ advanced technology will enable families, farmers and businesses to access applications. It opens the door for country people to a countless number of opportunities across the digital world.” said Activ8me’s GM Marketing, Ian Roberts
