Giving you virtually unlimited bandwidth, unmatched reliability and complete control.
Dark fibre makes it possible to establish a direct connection between two locations, such as two branches of an organisation, two data centres, or between a data centre and an office building.
This gives you unparalleled control over the physical data path, enabling network engineers to design robust networks with guaranteed geographic diversity and security through physical separation from other services.
With the flexibility of your choice of end-point technology (from 1–100 Gbps optical or DWDM Multiplexers), dark fibre is a cost-effective way of achieving almost unlimited bandwidth and scalability without additional carrier costs for scaling up.
- Your network
- Complete control
- Choice of end-point technology
- Point-to-point connection

- Geographic diversity
- Unparalleled speed
- Extreme scalability using DWDM
- Lowest possible latency
Dark Fibre is a passive technology, without electrical or mechanical parts. The fibre simply becomes an extension of your network, giving you complete control with maximum reliability, scalability, and security.
Our network capability, reliability and reach are recognised as industry-leading in Tasmania. Major network operators rely on us to deliver mission-critical connectivity, often in areas other operators don’t service.
We have a proven track record for quality and reliability, supported by a truly local and highly skilled team.

We’ll provide a highly detailed fibre path map so you can plan diversity in your own network with confidence.
We handle the diversity for you, protecting the circuit with diverse geographic paths where available.
Other ways to protect your network:
Our telecommunications team provides specialist operational telecommunications services and a wide range of commercial telecommunications carriage and data centre services to wholesale, corporate and government customers across Tasmania.
Carriage services are provided on a highly available statewide telecommunications network, operated and maintained 24/7 by 42-24’s NOC and statewide field workforce.
Our telecommunications network provides operational, commercial and business services to support both the Tasmanian electricity system, as well as the diverse needs of commercial customers. This network currently comprises a fully redundant statewide microwave radio backbone complemented by local loops and spur routes, and a statewide geographically diverse optical fibre network along the transmission line routes and the distribution corridors.
