Local services

CyberKnights are big supporters of the idea of using local services wherever possible. Here are some of the service providers we’ve used and found to be good.


We use and recommend ArachNet because they are big enough to survive but small enough to care and customise. Their broadband plans were highly competitive (before AmCom bought that division out, and AmCom do a pretty reasonable job themselves) and they also offer high quality and economical colocation services.

Our second choices would be WestNet for service (but join them through LinuxIT for even better service and support) or SwifTel (now consumed by PeopleTelecom) for reliability.

Computer Equipment

We use and recommend PLE in Wangara [map] or NetPlus in Osborne Park for retail-level computer gear.

“A disgruntled ex-employee who was in charge of making sure we were Microsoft compliant turned us in to the Business Software Alliance,” [Ernie] Ball says. [...] “We were raided by armed Federal Marshals and completely shut down for a day. Then you have to swear you won't touch any data other than what is minimally necessary to run your business,” he says. “I don’t believe you should treat a customer that way.” [...] The company ended up paying a [USD]$90,000 settlement.

Ball [...] decided at that moment his company would become “Microsoft free.” According to Ball, “Everyone said we couldn’t do it. It took us about one year” [to convert to] a Linux-based network and UNIX mainframe.

“I haven’t had to buy XP, and I haven’t had to buy new computers.”
