88. Stephen Cornish – Pentanet

Danelle and Chris talk with Stephen Cornish, founder and managing director of Pentanet, a Perth-based internet provider providing super-fast speeds for homes and businesses.

A keen gamer, Stephen set up his first tower for himself so he could enjoy faster internet to play League of Legends. Years later, the company now owns the largest private fixed network in Perth, has listed on the ASX (‘5GG’), and even owns a professional League of Legends team.

“If you have an idea, you really have nothing to lose by doing it. You’ll have some challenges, things will get tough, and you’ll make sacrifices, but if you don’t do it, it won’t happen.” ~ Stephen Cornish.
