He says the IT infrastructure is expected to be installed and operational ‘within week’ enabling Spookfish to begin addressing pent up market demand for its services.

NextDC was selected because of its national footprint in Australia, along with its range of connectivity options and ability to support Spookfish’s planned growth while minimising risk.
