Our Story

Changing the way Australia connects

In the early nineties, the world was very different from today’s environment of hyper-connectivity and instant communication. The internet was in its infancy and computer technology was emerging in a big way.

When the Australian telecommunications industry was deregulated in 1991, a young entrepreneur called David Redfern saw an opportunity to create new products and technologies for a market that had previously been closed. The origins of Madison were born and now David’s vision has guided the business to become a leader in connectivity solutions.
