Netspace was one of Australia's major Internet service providers.

Netspace started in 1992[1] by Stuart Marburg and Richard Preen, the business initially offering dial-up internet access, as was the standard at the time.

The company was an earlier adopter of DSL in Australia and quickly focused primarily on selling ADSL-based Internet access.

The company was headquartered in Camberwell, a suburb of Melbourne, Victoria.

Netspace initially resold Telstra ADSL and then installed their own DSLAMs in some locations including Tasmania. [2]

The business sold services to retail, SOHO and business customers. The products included DNS, co-location, web hosting, VoIP as well as core Internet products.

On 29 March 2010, an agreement was entered into in which Netspace would be acquired by the larger ASX listed ISP, iiNet, for $40 million.[1]
