<p>BigAir CEO, Jason Ashton said, “Our significant growth is a result of the strong interest and take-up of our wireless broadband products including our wireless laptop cards and our high-speed wireless broadband connections for business which offer symmetric speeds up to 100Mbps,”</p>
<p>“One of our most successful strategies has been to focus on the business market as they are looking for quality, service and value for money,” Jason Ashton said.</p>
<p>Deloitte Technology, Media and Telecommunications partner, Ms Julia Bickerstaff, said the growth of BigAir had been astounding.</p>
<p>“Managing growth is challenging for many organisations, but BigAir has achieved exceptional growth during a downturn in the technology sector.</p>
<p>“With the global tech sector recovery, Australia is leading the region and the future is looking very bright for BigAir.</p>
<p>BigAir this week announced plans to introduce its next generation of wireless broadband services offering symmetric speeds up to 1Gbit per second (50 times faster than the maximum download speed and 1000 times faster than the standard upload speed offered on ADSL2+ systems).</p>
