Rural, regional and remote telecommunications experts
We were founded with the goal of empowering regional and rural Australians through the provision of quality broadband and phone services.
Australian Private Networks Pty Ltd (APN) was founded in 2002 with one mission: to connect every corner of rural, regional and remote Australia with world-class broadband internet.
Commencing trading as Activ8me in 2005, we have grown to become the pre-eminent internet service provider (ISP) in rural, regional and remote Australia.
Holding carrier licence 167, APN has a proven track record of providing commercially viable solutions to Government agencies and commercial entities.
APN is 100% Australian owned and operated by a wholly Australian based workforce. Activ8me Business Services is an end-to-end service provider; with the required resources to provide sales, in-house customer support, field maintenance and on-site servicing.
We develop customised software and hardware in Australia where possible, and when not produced in-house, attempt to source Australian components in our solutions.
APN holds three ISO certifications, for which we are audited annually by an independent third party, as part of our commitment to maintaining these standards.
The relevant standards are:
- AS/NZS ISO 9001:2015 Quality Management Systems
- AS/NZS ISO 14001:2015 Environmental Management Systems
- AS/NZS ISO 45001:2018 Occupational Health and Safety Management Systems
In addition to these standards APN holds 'Classification 1' certifications issued by Communications Alliance Association (CAA) Family Friendly, Ennex labs undertake the required testing under the IIA, ACMA rules and Communications Alliance Association Family Friendly Filter status.
