Internet users in Perth's northern suburbs will have access to Pentanet's neXus service by the end of next month after 11,000 customers expressed interest in the high-speed network.

That service, which uses mesh technology to efficiently rout data to users, is already available to users in about a dozen Perth suburbs including Doubleview, Osborne Park and Scarborough.

It's expected to be available in other a handful of other suburbs, including Balcatta, Stirling and Morley, by the end of July.

Pricing for the service will be $129 per month after a limited initial offer of $99 per month.

Pentanet managing director Stephen Cornish said it had taken significant time and engineering to roll out neXus and commercialise it at scale.

"We believe the neXus technology will be disruptive to telecommunications and, after much research and deliberation, we have landed on an early adoption price point that we feel will also be disruptive and generate the growth in demand needed to support further expansion of existing coverage," he said.

News of neXus's rollout comes just two months after Pentanet secured a sponsorship deal with West Perth Falcons and secured naming rights for HBF Arena's outdoor sports ground.

Shares in Pentanet were trading at $0.27 as of 11:30am AEST.
