Open Letter From Simon Hackett

Friday, December 23rd, 2011 by


An open letter to customers and friends of Internode & Agile

Business As Usual – Only Better

As the founder and managing director of Internode Pty and Agile Pty Ltd, I am writing with some important news about our company group.

Under a just-concluded agreement, ASX-listed iiNet will purchase all of the shares in Internode Pty Ltd and its sister company Agile Pty Ltd, effectively making the Internode Group a subsidiary of iiNet. The transaction will be completed by the end of February 2012.

This is obviously a huge development in the life and times of Internode and Agile!

After a decade that has seen the Australian broadband market grow from birth in 2000 to maturity in 2010, we are at the top of our game, and at the top of a mountain, right now.

So this is exactly the right time to find a new mountain to climb, as part of a new alliance. (more…)

Internode MD Simon Hackett is featured in the current issue of The Deal Magazine, published in The Australian.

The article explores the different paths Internode and iiNet, and their respective founders Simon Hackett and iiNet MD Michael Malone, have taken to build successful ISP businesses and their role in developing the Australian broadband industry.

It’s an interesting read for anyone who’s interested in the history of Internode and some of the current challenges in the industry. Read more in The Deal Magazine.

Team Internode

Here’s the team of people who are involved in taking the Internode Tesla Roadster from Darwin to Adelaide over the coming days (click on the image to enlarge).

Team Internode in Darwin

Team Internode in Darwin

From left to right, we have:

Cheryle, Kym, Jessi, Emilis, Ben, Simon, and Kingsley

Cheryle and Kym are driving our support vehicle, a Volvo XC-90, which towed the Roadster to Darwin

Kingsley and Jessi are driving our mobile charging station, an 8 ton truck with a large diesel generator set chained to the back of it

Emilis and Simon will be driving the Roadster. We are both experienced glider pilots – and I’ll explain in another blog post why this qualifies us to be efficient EV drivers.

Ben is a former Internoder (very much missed) who is now following his passion to pursue a flying career. He is currently working in Darwin as a pilot – and its been great to see him again.

You can also see that for the event, I have removed my hair and given it to Kingsley, in order to improve my personal aerodynamic profile and maximise the driving range of the Roadster :)
