Could your business survive without the internet?

This was the reality faced by Deborah Cannizzaro when she opened Alcyon Hair and Beauty on Shaw Road in the leafy inner-Brisbane suburb of Wooloowin. Deb was thrilled to have launched the salon, a thriving space where locals and non-locals alike flock for a range of hair, beauty and nail services delivered by a tight-knit and passionate team.

“A combination of an overloaded electricity exchange and slow NBN roll out speeds means that four years after opening we still suffer regular internet outages at the salon.”
