Nexthop has become a valued partner of Pentanet thanks to its high-quality carrier offerings and excellent service. The team at Nexthop are always responsive and reliable, and their IP Transit, nextXC, Dark Fibre and XFIBRE (10G Internet) services have never let us down.

Connor Llewellin
Chief Operating Officer, Pentanet

As a New Zealand based service provider with trans Tasman customers, partnering with providers who deliver a quality service has always been difficult. Since our move to Nexthop, our last mile services are delivered seamlessly and the Nexthop team feel like an extension of our own network. Network uptime has been superb and when there are blips, the team are incredibly responsive. Their knowledge of local products and understanding of our needs is second to none

Rudi Hefe
Commercial Director, PlanB/Solarix

Nexthop has been entrusted with our global WAN over the last 6 years. During this time, they have provided us with fast and reliable connectivity. Nexthop has always been willing to push the envelope on our behalf with custom solutions, whilst continuing to support us with a high level of customer service.

Nectarios Lazaris
Chief Information Officer, Unispace

With US$300m+ of subsea cables connected to Australia, RTI almost immediately engaged Nexthop to help accelerate our network presence across Australia. The RTI + Nexthop strategic relationship formed quickly and naturally around Nexthop’s technical competence, our companies’ shared values, and each firm’s relentless drive to solve complex problems. Mutual trust and respect are key reasons why our firms are exploring how to best expand our relationship, but we really just want to hang out with each other more!

Russell Matulich
Chief Executive Officer, RTI Cables

Great experience using Nexthop! The set-up process of a super fast fibre link to our new hub was seamless. Don't waste your time with other providers and go with Nexthop!

Guil Cunha
Director, Hub Operations Stone & Chalk

We've used Nexthop for a couple of dark fibre links now, their build times are quick, their prices are great and they kept us updated throughout the process.
