Internet capacity for Goondiwindi to receive a major boost through backhaul provider QCN Fibre.

Internet capacity for Goondiwindi locals and businesses such as AgTech startup InFarm are set to receive a major boost through backhaul provider QCN Fibre.

In Goondiwindi QCN Fibre has partnered with Channel Wireless and local internet service provider Country Broadband Network (CBN) to speed up the town’s internet and data services.

Working together with CBN, local AgTech company InFarm are looking to connect their supercomputer at a mini data centre that will provide a faster and more economical connection – a significant boost for their business.

Faster internet service at Goondiwindi will aid AgTech company InFarm to use their drone enabled technology to locate the viciously thorny Hudson pear cactus and other weeds on vast properties.

QCN Fibre’s lower prices are expected to attract new internet service providers, and enable existing providers to buy more capacity by working with telecommunications carriers and internet service providers to connect underused parts of the Government-owned network.
