Maxnet Purchases Web Internet

Maxnet has purchased the Internet Services Provider Web Internet (WIN) to strengthen its presence in the business sector of the Internet market.

“WIN’s reputation in the technical sector of the ISP market will complement our existing ISP business” said Antony Urbahn, Managing Director of Maxnet.

“Our focus on providing a reliable and responsive service to our customers, supported by our leading edge technology, has been the backbone to our recent growth.

“Our recent acquisitions of Surfer Internet and Titan Internet have allowed us to grow in the residential Internet market. WIN’s acquisition ideally complements that existing business.

“The purchase is another step in the rationalisation of the ISP business in New Zealand. This has seen the number of ISP companies drop from 100 three years ago to around 20 today” said Mr Urbahn.

Maxnet is an Auckland based ISP that provides a viable alternative to the ISPs of the two major telcos, based on sound – some would say old-fashioned – business practices, a strong balance sheet, innovative technology and a commitment to customer service.
