Australia's internet isn't good enough. That's why we do what we do.
The solution is here, and it's wireless.
The bainchild of two Brisbane guys demanding the very best from their internet service, Switchnode exists to improve the internet of Australia and bring people the digital quality of life they’re looking for.
Starting with the greater Brisbane area, we believe that wireless connections are the solution to our country’s problem, bypassing the aged copper network and breaking new ground in a whole new way of thinking.
Internet through the air is only getting faster with each generation of technology, while internet-enabled devices are making homes and workplaces smarter all the time. Switchnode sit on the cutting edge.
We’re all about helping people and fixing Brisbane’s internet. Make sure to say hi and let us know how we can help!
What We BRING
