MyNetFone Sponsors Pink Torres Kitesurf Expedition

MyNetFone is proud to be one of the major sponsors of the Pink Torres kitesurf expedition, which aims to fundraise $100,000 for the McGrath Foundation.  Kicking off on July 12, the ambitious team of 16 kitesurfers will attempt to cross the Torres Strait from far north Queensland all the way to Papua New Guinea. 

The journey will take the team more than 280 kilometres across the infamous Torres Strait from Cape York to Saibai island, with stopovers at the uninhabited reef at Kirkadie and Coconut island, Yorke Island and Mission Reef Sand Cay.  The physically taxing journey, which will see the team kitesurfing all day to cover the huge distance, is expected to take five days. Of particular concern will be the salt water crocs and reef sharks known to populate the Torres! 

The aim of the expedition is to raise $100,000 to help fund the amazing work of the McGrath Foundation. As of June 2013, the McGrath Foundation has helped support over 20,000 Australian families experiencing breast cancer, ensuring their physical, psychological and basic support needs are met. With 84 McGrath Breast Care Nurses working in communities right across Australia, families can self refer to this free service. Through community fundraising such as the Pink Torres kite surfing expedition the McGrath Foundation continues to work tirelessly to ensure there is a breast care nurse to support every Australian family experiencing breast cancer. 

MyNetFone pink kites for Torres Crossing

In addition to its fund raising and breast cancer awareness aims, the team will run kite flying clinics with the local communities along the way.

MyNetFone Wins 'Outstanding Project' Category at CeBIT Australia Awards!

We’re thrilled to be able to announce that MyNetFone has been awarded the CeBIT Australia 2013 Award for Outstanding Project! The award, which recognises leadership and excellence in project management, was given to us for the rollout of VoIP services to the Tasmanian Government.  The project is the first of its kind by any state government and one of Australia’s largest VoIP rollouts, incorporating 30,000 end users.

CeBIT Outstanding Project Award Winner 2013

The project, dubbed ‘Voice Services - Public Network Access and Carriage’, provides the Government with a locally hosted, dedicated Voice Network, featuring massive scalability in VoIP traffic, carrier interconnected network infrastructure and fully automated Local Number Portability (LNP).  The network is built on MyNetFone's state of the art software systems.

The Project was delivered within budget parameters laid out in the Project plan and the voice network infrastructure was in place well in advance of the proposed trial commencement date.

To be recognised with this award from CeBIT is a credit to the entire MyNetFone team for their determination and dedication to excellence. We would also like to give credit and thanks to the Tasmanian Government for entrusting this mission critical project to MyNetFone.

Our commitment to Australia-based customer support & service

Contrary to recent industry trends, MyNetFone Group strongly believes in onshore support and service. Together with our substantial investment in Australia-based Research & Development, we understand that local customer support – delivered by Australians to Australians – is what our customers want, residential and businesses alike.

MyNetFone Australian Call Centre for VoIP Phone services & Naked DSL internet services

Due to substantial growth in our Residential and Business (SMB and Enterprise) divisions, we recently expanded our Australian-based customer service and support operations, moving into larger premises within our company headquarters in Surry Hills, Sydney.

To expand the facilities, MyNetFone moved the sales and marketing teams to an additional level in the same Surry Hills office building. This has freed up room on the original office level accommodate a 20 per cent staff increase in our customer service and technical support call centre, and there’s enough space for new hires. 

More agents mean better, more personalised customer service & we look forward to assisting you.

Crystal Ball: What’s in store for 2013?

Mobile, cloud computing and the Internet of Things are some of the mega trends that are shaping the telecommunications industry. Demand for connectivity – wireless and fixed – is growing in all areas of our lives, be it at home or at work.

At the same time, the proliferation of cloud services creates administrative and financial pressures on organisations, especially for SMBs with limited in-house IT resources. In response, the trend is toward a model where companies can access cloud services under a simple, subscription-based pricing structure, with a single point of contact and support. 

MyNetFone VoIP & Internet Communications Predictions for 2013

We are also seeing the NBN gaining traction among average Australians who recognise the benefits of next generation Internet. Admittedly, it is still early days for the broadband network, with the rollout scheduled for completion in 2020. There has already been a good uptake however, with over 24,000 Australians currently using the NBN and this is set to rise as more than 2.5 million premises are connected over the next three years. Breaking up age-old monopolies in the telco space, the NBN will create more competition at retail and wholesale level, which ultimately benefits consumers and businesses.

Some of the other key trends we are expecting to see in 2013 include:

1. BYOD (Bring-Your-Own-Device) phenomenon accelerates

Driven by 4G / LTE, mobile apps and services are increasingly movinginto the cloud, devices are becoming more personalised, and moving towards being a tool for both personal and work use on the one device. At the same time, businesses seek the flexibility and cost savings of VoIP, as traditional deskbound working patterns are gradually being replaced with remote / telecommuting style arrangements.

We are not only expecting to see more mobile devices connecting to enterprise-grade VoIP services, but we also expect mobile numbers to finally become fully portable, just as we have recently seen in the fixed line market, where lifting restrictions on the portability of geographic numbers removed a significant barrier to changing providers.

2. Over-The-Top alleviates cloud complexity

Over-the-Top (OTT) refers to a broad range of cloud services that run on Internet connected devices, ranging from email and anti-virus to voice and video streaming. While OTT apps thrive in the consumer space, businesses are grappling with the complexity that multiple service providers – each with their own billing mechanism and support system – impose on their already stretched IT and finance resources.

Rather than having to deal with 20 individual providers, many seek a one-stop-shop that covers most of their communication needs, providing a single point of customer support and one consolidated monthly bill. By opting for a single provider that bundles connectivity and OTT services, organisations can also eliminate the need for costly technical integration between applications, avoiding data siloes in the cloud. 

3. Do-It-Yourself (DIY) comms grows in popularity

While consumers and businesses alike look for providers with comprehensive service offerings, they increasingly reject rigid plans and bundles that assume that one size fits all. Rather, we are expecting to see customers mix and match the communications services, software apps and hardware products they really need.

For example, light internet users, who mostly use the internet for email, internet browsing and social networking, may not need the maximum speed and download allowances the NBN can deliver, but can reap significant cost savings from NBN-enabled VoIP.

What are your predictions for 2013 and what would you like to see from us in the next 12 months?
