“Now, more than ever, our world is dependent on reliable home Wi-Fi and connectivity,” said Philippe Alcaras, CEO of Airties. “Telstra understands this fully, and we are very proud to play our part in to help them execute on their vision. Our work with Telstra also shows that Airties continues to be at the forefront of EasyMesh deployments and empowering our customers to differentiate using Smart Wi-Fi.”
