March IT in conjunction with Connected Australia are linking the community of Chinchilla to high speed internet services they’ve been waiting for. The new and cutting edge technology means “residents can bypass the lumbering NBN to get connected immediately!”, Geoff Marsh, Business Development Director, March IT announced today.
“The Chinchilla community has been in an internet black hole for too long but last Friday we switched on the lights and it’s a great feeling. People don’t need to wait for the NBN – we can do it for you. In fact we’ve been operating in Chinchilla and the Western Downs since 2013” he said.
March IT is partnering with Connected Australia to offer Chinchilla’s near 6,000 residents access to the reliable high speed internet connection they’ve been missing. With expected download speeds of 50Mbps and 10Mbps upload, the service will match or better existing services in urban settings.
“We’re a small private business and we’re passionate about looking after the needs of the local communities where we operate. We know the people we talk to are frustrated by their internet freezing or dropping out, not delivering – well they don’t have to worry about that anymore because we’ll fix it for good” he said.
Connected Australia started knocking on doors the day the signal started broadcasting from Chinchilla’s Water Tower, where the beacon is transmitted from. The life-giving water supply is also quenching the thirst for lightning-fast fibre optic internet services within Chinchilla, residents have been registering in their hundreds. Customers can choose from a range of plans including flexible premium options which deliver even faster speeds.
“We’ve built it – the service is switched on and when people sign up, we have them connected within the week. But more than that – what we guarantee is the quality and reliability people need in their everyday lives and in their small businesses. We’re not using a dilapidated copper network – we’re at the cutting edge and that’s a massive benefit to users – you just don’t get that with copper” Mr Marsh concluded.
Moving forward the March IT & Connected Australia team will be offering similar services into Moura, QLD in the coming weeks before rolling it out to more regional areas in the near future, watch this space.
