Border Internet comes of age
his year marks the 21st anniversary of Border Internet. Starting from humble beginnings out of King William’s Town, the business has
Tgrown into the largest Wireless Internet Service Provider (WISP) in the Border Kei region.
Border Internet offers a variety of services to home-users and businesses across the region and the company’s primary focus is on providing high-speed internet connections delivered via fibre, wireless and LTE-A. The huge increase in demand for fast, reliable connectivity is being driven by the emergence of Netflix and Cloud services. Traditional copper-based ADSL can no longer deliver the consistent speeds needed for these demanding applications and a next generation network needed to be built.
Dean Wolmarans and Luke Phillips recognised this and sold Border Internet into the HeroTel group of companies last year. Border Internet forms part of the Eastern region of HeroTel, including iGen, Cloud Connect and LCOM. “Our clients have benefited from a substantial injection of capital, skills and information systems with these changes.” There have also been a number of staff appointments across technical, sales, support, operations and management to offer our customers a superior service.
To cap off their anniversary celebrations, during the week of July 16, Border Internet will be launching their new head office at 49 Bonza Bay Road, Beacon Bay.
“It remains our mission to supply a reliable service at a competitive price while maintaining a personal service to our customers, ” GM Border Internet’s Anne Bhagwan said.
