Our History

Launtel (Launceston Telecom) is based in Launceston, Tasmania. The company commenced trading in 2007 as Launtel Pty Ltd with sole director Damian Ivereigh and has now grown to include a team of staff including experienced technicians and administrative staff.

Launtel was born out of Damian’s ongoing frustration with the impersonal service that he and many small business associates experienced with large telcos. This was also when it was decided there should be no contracts – we wanted people to stay with us because they wanted to, not because they had to.

Launtel also became a specialist in the provision of VOIP (Voice Over Internet Protocol) technologies that had just begun emerging at the time and which formed part of Damian’s background in programming and code writing for CISCO systems, one of the world’s largest internet development companies.

Supported by experienced technical staff and administrative staff, Launtel has structured its operation specifically to provide highly personalised services to small to medium enterprise in Tasmania.

We may be a small company in comparison to the big 3, but that hasn’t stopped us doing big things in providing national business solutions where the other companies couldn’t.

We know that you’ll find Launtel, intuitive, reliable and intelligent and best of all we know you’ll find that Launtel has a heart.
