The Gold Coast's largest independent Internet services provider OntheNet is again throwing its financial support behind the Gold Coast Business Excellence Awards.
The Varsity Lakes-headquartered company, which is celebrating its 20th year in business, has come a long way since it was first set up as a part-time business run by a group of Bond University and Digital Equipment Corporation staff using dial up modems and a computer.
The company has been recognised several times through the Gold Coast Business Excellence Awards and the company is now returning the favour by sponsoring the awards.
Gold Coast Business Excellence Awards president Ian Cousins said it was pleasure to have a local company such as OntheNet sponsoring the awards.
The awards' sponsors include City of Gold Coast, Suncorp Bank, AusIndustry, Griffith University, Regional Development Australia Gold Coast and Gold Coast Airport.
OntheNet director Tak Woo said OntheNet has invested heavily in the Gold Coast pouring millions of dollars' worth of infrastructure into local exchanges and built two high end Data Centres at Varsity Lakes.
"Very few locals would know that they are using our infrastructure when they deal online with the local councils in the regions, if they use wi-fi at local hotels, libraries or an airport, get a scan at a radiologists, or purchase something at a major chemist chain.
"When we set up the company we knew the key to success was providing superior service and support to customers and we still believe this 20 years later."
"It's been the cornerstone of our success and we have won numerous awards for our business including the Gold Coast Business Excellence Awards on each occasion we have entered."
The GCBEA's major supporters are SMART McCann Worldgroup, Document Solutions Australia, Consulting Hall, Jupiter's Gold Coast, Regina King Photography, Bruce Lynton BMW, Bond University, KPMG, Dreamweavers and CGC Premiums and Merchandise.
The awards' media sponsors include the Gold Coast Bulletin, NBN Television, 92.5 Gold FM and 90.9 Sea FM.
