Helping those who are helping the community

There has never been a time where it's more important to seamlessly connect and interact with customers, peers, platforms and people.

It’s been a difficult start to the year for all of us. Life as we know it has fundamentally changed as we find ourselves forced into isolation to fight a global health pandemic. As organisations move quickly to shift to remote working arrangements, and scale their services to support the nations people and businesses, it places incredible strain on the existing network infrastructure and the services we need to consume in order to operate effectively.

Despite the curve ball this crisis has thrown us, we continue to hear about so many great approaches organisations are taking to help those that deliver essential human and business services this country is relying on during this time.

Within NEXTDC we’ve taken swift action to ensure we support the health and well-being of our team and our customers, partners and suppliers who visit our data centres. Despite the rapidly changing landscape surrounding COVID-19, it has reinforced the importance of community and working together. United, we’re able to advance towards the greater good of our fellow humans and the country.

I am immensely proud to announce that we will be waiving new AXON port services fees for six months for the essential services organisations that continue to selflessly assist the wider community. In times of uncertainty, we should do everything we can to support the organisations that support those in need.

It’s critical these organisations can scale their services to support increased demand, and the ability to seamlessly interconnect and communicate is one of the most critical requirements.

This offer is open to eligible organisations for new AXON ports that are required across the national AXON network, enabling direct, private connectivity to over 600 ICT service providers including the leading public cloud platforms.
