  • Internet-based contribution

    When dedicated communications are unavailable, or need added resilience, internet-based contribution can help solve a number of challenges. Our services can help you get connected quickly to locations that don’t have permanent fibre, or which will only be needed for a short time. They can also be used to add resilience to satellite or single fibre connections, or to test the market with channels in new territories.
