2013 Quartly Roundup

It has been a busy few months here at Aus Net Servers Australia. Several things have happened since our last blog update in January.

Aus Net Servers Australia has completed re-structured from the ground up to become a Pty Ltd company. For many years we have been a”Regional Australian Registered Business” trading in Victoria, many saw us as a small company there to support our client base but failed to see our real commitment to their ICT Needs. becoming an Pty Ltd re-enforces the fact that we are here for the long hall and will be here to support out clients now and into the future.

Although 2013 is only a little under a 3rd completed we have been busy replacing equipment  and planing new packages for 2014 along with picking up the pace in anticipation for the National Broadband Network due to roll out in Horsham in the last quarter / first quarter of 2014. 

The contractors have already been selected for the roll out throughout Horsham and surrounding suburbs. Field work is due to start by November 2013  

Aus Net Servers Australia has commenced work on new service packages for both our Retail website and the business website. These packages are due to be released for public review in August 2013. So look out for our new packages and tell us what you think.

That brings us to the end of our quarterly review for now, stayed tuned to our facebook page and blog post for upcomming specials and giveaways

ANSA Annual Maintenance

Well its that time of year again – the offices are quieter, everyone is on Christmas / New Years break. It has come to that time of year again where we do a full service of all of our internal ticketing, monitoring and support services. 

During these 7 days certain services (during certain small window periods) may be un-available. We urge customers to call our Sales & Support Centre on 1300 933 038 or our Network Operations Centre  on 1300 769 629 for support, sales or billing enquires.

We will try our hardest to do as much of the work during the graveyard hours (11PM – 7AM) but there is a lot of work that needs to be done.

We will be upgrading a lot of our ticketing systems to newer, faster and more echo friendly cloud clustered servers and implementing new features and updates to improve the overall performance of our network.

We ask when you do call up that you are patient with our staff during this period as the system will be responding very slowly depending on the work that is being carried out.

The set window is from 12AM Monday the 7th of January 2012 until 6AM Friday the 11th of January 2012.

If you have any inquiries about these upgrades or implementations please contact us via phone.

We do not expect that any of these service upgrades and modifications will impact on any shared, dedicated or colo location services. Certain management features from your billing portal will be unavailable between 11PM & 7AM.

If you continue having issues after Friday please get in touch with us as soon as possible
