Primo, a broadband provider based in Taranaki, was initially established with a primary focus on delivering wireless broadband to remote communities. Under the leadership of Matthew Harrison, Founder and Managing Director, Primo has successfully broadened its range of services and recently expanded its operations into the realm of fibre infrastructure.

In a strategic move to protect their substantial investment in the underground fibre network, Primo became a member of beforeUdig for asset protection. The membership process, overseen by Matthew Harrison, was executed with precision and efficiency. Shortly after joining the service, Primo witnessed a noticeable increase in requests for planning and work near its infrastructure, emphasising the prompt and tangible impact of beforeUdig in ensuring the security and integrity of Primo’s assets.
