The enhanced offering from 5G Networks is set to improve service capability to all managed service providers (MSP) across Australia. As such, customers will have access to the following:

  • Connectivity services of up to 100 gigabytes;

In addition, the company’s wholesale ordering portal, 5GN Wholesale, offers customers speed and flexibility in service delivery.

5G Networks managing director Joe Demase said:

5GN is very excited to be strengthening our partner sales channel with the launch of 5GN Wholesale, we believe the combination of our fibre network and data centre connectivity will allow our wholesale partners significant flexibility and an alternative to the traditional providers

We have been actively investing in our infrastructure footprint and now clearly demonstrate the capability to meet Australia’s accelerating demand for cloud and data centre connectivity.
