Quik Open To Improve Internet Services in NZ

Quik Internet Franchises Open To Improve Internet Services Throughout New Zealand Quik International, the world's largest Internet service franchisor, today announced three new Internet Service Provider (ISP) franchises to improve the quality of Internet services throughout New Zealand. The franchises were established through the company's Master Franchise, Quik Internet New Zealand (NZ).

Quik Internet NZ provides Internet services to residents and businesses by franchising ISPs in local communities. The three new Quik Internet ISPs are located in these areas, Auckland Central, Auckland North Shore and Manawatu.

While the Manawatu and North Shore operations introduce two new businessmen to the Quik network, the Auckland Central territory has been purchased by Robert Broadbridge, managing director of Quik Internet Auckland East.

"The network and solid franchise model provided by Quik has made my first Quik Internet franchise in Auckland East a great success," said Broadbridge, "It was a natural transition to acquire another territory and open Quik Internet Auckland Central."

Quik Technology Enhances Services

Quik Internet offers e-mail, Internet access, Web site design, hosting and e-commerce solutions with benefits for New Zealand users through its high quality, comprehensive Internet service. Including, free W eb sites with dial-up accounts, free Internet classes and specialized services through the model of personal, local service.

Quik powers its network with IBM RS/6000* robust, scalable servers that provide power and reliability to its service. The RS/6000 holds a world record for recording 430,000 hits per minute as the official Web server of the 1999 Champion Wimbledon games.

"As a franchise business, we pool our resources to build a powerful, competitive infrastructure and offer services no other provider can," said Geoff Olliff, sales and marketing director of Quik Internet NZ. "The result is Quik Internet's speedy, reliable online connection that we uphold with localised customer support."
