In September the third party provider Maxon (they supply the VPN connections to all the wireless broadband picocells.) was purchased by telecommunications suppliers RF Industries. This is a good takeover with RFI being a major supplier in the Australian market for many decades. RFI have maintained the current operations and most of the staff from Maxon.

We have been offered 24 hour support numbers for Maxon to circumvent major outages like this in the future.
