Here at Swoop we believe in
Locals Supporting Locals
We are proudly 100% Australian owned and operated, based in Warragul, Victoria. We support locals by providing high quality internet options, and having a help desk, staffed by locals.
Freedom & Flexibility
Our customers are our stars. That's why we believe in giving them complete freedom and flexibility by ditching contracts.
Making a Difference
We believe in making a difference everyday. Our office is powered by solar energy. We've also been Unicef Champions for Children since 2005.
Joined forces with Swoop, and launched the new website and branding using the Swoop Broadband name. Future focus is to retain customer service excellence, and expand Acceler8ed Broadband into more areas.
2018 was another year of consolidation for DCSI, with a continued focus in offering the highest-performing NBN product, exceptional support, and high-value product offerings backed by the best network infrastructure of any privately owned ISP in Australia.
To keep their brand promises upon acquiring DCSI, the new ownership launches DCSI’s 8th generation wireless platform 'Acceler8ed Wireless,' an improved 'congestion-free' NBN product, and a dedicated DCSI Business brand to service a growing professional customer-base.
DCSI is acquired by two Gippsland technology entrepreneurs who immediately begin work in transforming the business into a customer-focused communications brand, leveraging the latest technology to deliver high-performance phone and internet products. The new owners also commit to keeping, and improving, the local help desk that the brand has been known for.
DCSI moves to 1A, 155 Queen St, Warragul. Our new office provides even more space and better facilities for our growing local phone help desk.
NBN and Other Fibre
We start offering high-speed services over the NBN and privately owned fibre-to-the-premises networks.
We complete our DSLAM build in Drouin, expanding our on-net ADSL service to cover the town and surrounds.
Phone & Wimax
DCSI begins providing landline phone services to homes and businesses throughout Australia, and begins installing WiMAX and AirMax wireless access points throughout its Gippsland network, offering speeds of up to 12Mbps download.
DCSI adds 3G mobile broadband to its product lineup, leveraging the Optus network for coverage.
We complete the arduous process of installing our own DSLAMs at the Warragul phone exchange, allowing us to provide extremely competitive ADSL2+ in Warragul.
DCSI moves to its current location at 64 Queen St, Warragul. The Trango M2400S wireless system is rolled out at towers across Gippsland, offering ADSL-grade performance wirelessly at distances of up to 40KM.
DCSI begins providing ADSL services in Victoria, through wholesale partner Wholesale Communications Group (today known as M2 Wholesale). This year also saw us acquire the internet business of SYM-PAC Solutions Pty Ltd, merging their dial-up customer base with our own.
DCSI starts building its fixed wireless network, beginning with two 802.11b access points in Warragul, and expanding to cover Drouin and Tynong shortly afterward.
As demand for internet services grows, DCS splits its business, with the computer sales and support becoming Leading Edge Computers, and the internet services becoming Drouin Computer Services and Internet – DCSI.
We upgrade our backhaul to a one-way satellite connection, with the satellite link providing the downstream bandwidth, and an ISDN line handling the upstream.
We begin providing web hosting services for business and residential customers, powered by Linux-based Cobalt RaQ servers.
We move to Victoria St, Warragul, and begin offering the first local dial-up internet service – no more long-distance call charges. Two Apple Mac servers run the whole show, and our backhaul to the wider internet is provided by a 64Kbps ISDN line, which eventually moved to 128 and finally 256Kbps.
Drouin Computer Services (DCS) opens its doors in Drouin, offering computer systems for sale and associated IT support services to local homes and businesses.
