Our Extended Network

Our totally carrier-diverse and geographically-diverse fibre network spans more than 13,000 kilometres stretching from the Gold Coast, west from Brisbane to Toowoomba and beyond, and north through regional townships up to Cairns.

Our tower infrastructure exceeds 20,000 High Voltage and Telecommunications towers. With access to our fibre backhaul, our tower infrastructure opens up vast areas to the opportunity of improved wireless coverage and connectivity.

Technology

QCN’s cable network uses Dense Wave Division Multiplexing (DWDM) to provide extremely high-capacity data transmission over optic fibre.

We are currently expanding our capabilities further, rolling out cutting edge Ciena WaveLogic technology across our edge environment.

Our network is unique, as the vast majority is strung above ground as Optical Ground Wire (OPGW) cables – part of the existing electricity network. This means that much of the network is not impacted by damage due to excavation or washout during major weather events. OPGW are easier to repair than buried fibre.

We also provide access to more than 20,000 towers and co-location infrastructure throughout Queensland, providing the opportunity to offer more services to more Queenslanders that are currently underserved, improving coverage, capacity and competition for all.

Break the Digital Divide

There is no doubt of a digital divide in Australia. As of 2022, 2.8 million Australians are highly excluded from internet access. Many companies and reports advocate for the bridging of this divide. At QCN, we think it is high time we break it.
