Outback stations connected with Orion

Today’s farming enterprises are complex businesses which need reliable, fast internet access.  The challenge is that many are located in the most remote regions of the world.

This is the issue faced by Paraway Pastoral, which operates pastoral enterprises across the outback regions of Northern Territory, Queensland, New South Wales, and Victoria.

Paraway recently joined Orion, and now has broadband internet connections at 20 locations on their sheep and cattle stations via retail service provider Reachnet.

Chief Operating and  Financial Officer Karl Sinclair says connectivity is critical for pastoral enterprises and remote communities in general.

“Paraway is one of Australia’s larger pastoral land owners and operators, with a total combined land holding of over 4.4 million hectares,” Karl says.

“The current total land holding has the capacity to run approximately 200,000 cattle and 250,000 sheep.

“Running a business of this size, across multiple sites requires the latest technology and we hope to achieve this through fast and reliable internet coverage.”
