Aussie Broadband has made the Deloitte Technology Fast 50 Australia list for 2019 with an average revenue growth of 308% over the last three years.

The company, competing in a tough and competitive marketplace, won 4th place in the Leadership category.

It was also listed as #21 in the Technology Fast 50 sector at the awards ceremony, which was held in Sydney last night.

Aussie Broadband was the only retail telco company to make it to the Tech Fast 50.

Managing Director Phil Britt said he was proud and humbled to receive the accolade.

“We’re thrilled Aussie Broadband has been recognised by such prestigious awards.

“The award acknowledged that we have dramatically grown our market share and over the past 3 years,” he said. “We are now the fifth largest provider of new NBN services in Australia.”

The Deloitte Technology Fast 50 ranks Australia’s fastest growing technology companies, based on their percentage revenue growth over the last three years (2017-19). To qualify, each company must have minimum cumulative revenues of $8m over the period.

Phil said that a number of initiatives have contributed to the company’s growth, including automated systems and Aussie Broadband’s strongly-held core values.

“Aussie Broadband was formed from a merger between Wideband Networks, started by myself and my business partner John Reisinger in the Latrobe Valley, and Westvic Broadband based in Warrnambool, back in 2008,” he said.

“I firmly believe regional Victorian culture has played a strong role in our success, especially our awesome staff with their ‘no bullsh*t’ approach. This award wouldn’t be possible without them,” said Phil.

Deloitte Technology Fast 50 Lead Partner, Josh Tanchel, said:

“Simply making the 2019 Deloitte Technology Fast 50 Australia Awards is an achievement, but to be named among the top contenders in the Leadership category is a significant statement about the company.”

“Deloitte is proud to celebrate the achievements of Australia’s brightest technology innovators and look forward to working with them as they grow in the future.”
