​Voyager picks up 10,000 new customers through Wellington acquisition

The deal, effective October 31, will add 10,000 mainly residential broadband customers to the Voyager customer base.

Voyager Internet has unveiled plans to acquire Wellington-based Actrix, the first company to sell commercial Internet access in New Zealand in 1989.

The deal, effective October 31, will add 10,000 mainly residential broadband customers to the Voyager customer base.

With the addition of 20 Actrix staff in Wellington, the company will now have Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch offices, over 60 staff in total, and combined group revenues of $24 million per year.

“Whilst the larger players tend to dominate the telecommunications landscape in New Zealand, we believe that there is a market for a small and friendly Kiwi telecommunications company,” Voyager CEO, Seeby Woodhouse, said.

“We are focused on service, on employing New Zealanders, on having a New Zealand based help desk and support staff, and on treating people like people and not like numbers.”

Founded in 2011 by Woodhouse, Voyager has until now mainly focused on specialist areas of the telecommunications market such as domain names, cloud services, high end business connections and wholesale ISP services.

“The acquisition of Actrix will allow us to more closely connect with New Zealand consumers, and provides economies of scale that will allow us to compete more aggressively,” Woodhouse added.

“Customers will benefit from the combined strengths of both Companies. Actrix has an award winning helpdesk, often coming up tops in Consumer Magazine customer satisfaction awards, and Voyager has a wide range of services and history of technical innovation.”

Voyager has previously acquired a number of other Internet companies in New Zealand, including Net24, 1stDomains, Register Direct, Expired Domains, C-Talk and Digital Genus.
