Mr Greg Hicks, Executive Chairman of South Australian internet service provider (ISP) Adam Internet, has re-stated his company’s commitment to the South Australian market following the surprise reported sale of long-time competitor Internode to national ISP iiNet.
“On behalf of my Managing Director, Scott Hicks, our board, and myself, we wish to reiterate that we are totally committed to the South Australian market,” Mr Hicks said.
“We have sparred with Internode over many years and they have been a worthy adversary. We wish them well under their new management as they negotiate this transitional period.”
Mr Hicks said that Adam Internet welcomed the new National Broadband Network as it would ensure high-speed internet access was available to more Australians.
“As a significant player in the South Australian market, we feel confident about our future in the NBN environment,” Mr Hicks said.
“Since our foundation, we have dedicated ourselves to keeping South Australians at the forefront of internet developments, and this is no exception.
“We were early to market with ADSL2+, with Naked DSL, and with WiMAX services, and our customers range from residential through small business to government and corporate.
“Our most exciting development for 2012 will undoubtedly be the Adam Business Cloud, our latest new frontier, giving customers a new flexibility to scale as needed and pay only for what they use.
“The Adam Business Cloud will be hosted in Adelaide, giving customers’ confidence that their business critical information and data are stored locally.
“This is a very strategic move which takes advantage of our investment in Adam Data Centre infrastructure.
“We are in a strong position to deliver on the future of internet for the State and want to take this opportunity to thank all our customers, staff and South Australians and to wish you all the best for Christmas and the New Year!”
