Activ8me customer, Elizabeth Hughes, discovered Activ8me’s nbn™Fibre when moving into a townhouse as the first tenant, within a new complex. Receiving punctual installation Elizabeth signed up on no lock-in contract and the 25/5 megabits per second speed tier.
“The price was right, the size of the plan suited me and the no locked-contract was perfect as I didn’t know how long I would be renting there for. Over three years later, I haven’t had any issues with connectivity or speed and no price increases,” Elizabeth Hughes said.
“I refused to join the big name providers and it proves you don’t need to use the big providers to get good service,” Elizabeth added.
