The ransomware attacks vulnerabilities in Windows that have already been patched by Microsoft. Our continuing recommendation is to ensure all machines are up to date with patches and that AntiVirus software is running and up to date.

A Great Christmas Gift to Picton’s Industrial Area

Welcome to Picton’s Industrial Area!

Not being on the NBN’s near-future Rollout plans can be hard on any company trying to compete in the modern marketplace. Using technology and systems developed in-house by Ace Internet, we were able to tap into one of our nearby NBN connections and deliver it to an area not scheduled for NBN in the near-future using our real world, well established AirStream technology.

This is why we’re very pleased to be given the opportunity of being able to get companies in Picton’s Industrial Area onto the broadband fastlane!
