Blue Ocean Gigabit™

Launceston is Australia’s first Gigabit City; Tasmania is Australia’s first Gigabit State.

The Fastest NBN Internet in Australia! 10x faster than the typical best and 100x faster than the national average.

What is Gigabit on the nbn™?

Up until May 2017, Australians connected to the nbn™ had a choice of connection speeds up to 100mbps down and 40mbps up.

As a company we worked with wholesale partners and negotiated with nbn™ to ‘unlock’ a new plan that was 1000mbps down and 400mbps up.

That’s 10x faster than the national maximum.

When you then combine this with Launtel’s low contention ratios (i.e. we make sure each customer is allocated enough space to do what they need to do so they don’t slow down at peak times), we have clients running at up to 100x faster than the national average.

How do you get it

Blue Ocean™ Gigabit on the nbn™ is only available to businesses that have an FTTP (fibre to the premise) nbn™ connection.

Just contact us on the form below and we’ll either send a business liaison to come to your business and do a no obligation quote to make sure it’s right for you, or if you just want it now, we can usually have you connected in less than 12 business hours.

What are the practical benefits?


Increase productivity by removing micro-waits and distractions in business whilst staff are waiting for things to load. Just 5 seconds a minute can equate to 21 days of staff time across the year.


Find new ways of doing things that give you a competitive advantage. For example ARTAS Architects have been able to reduce their building design process from 5 weeks to 2 weeks by using collaborative technologies.


Reduce travel time and costs – use virtual meetings with low latency and high definition streaming that will make it feel like you’re all in the same room.


Save freight costs by sending things virtually, or sending files to 3D printers. Some movie and animation studios are still sending files by post or with a person on a plane to get the file back to the studio because it’s quicker than waiting for the upload and download! Gigabit fixes that!


Then there are all the innovations you create once you realise what it’s like to not be bound by slow internet!
