Precincts

A pre-connected area of multitenant buildings that gives you easy access to new customers.

A Precinct is a designated area with multiple buildings, housing SMEs and corporates, that are already connected to our network, giving you ready access to your customers.

Architecture

We have connected individual, commercially zoned buildings to Tachyon nodes or peering points on our dark-fibre network as a cost-effective solution to aggregating traffic within an area. These buildings are connected to the fibre network in a ring topology.
