Megaport’s performance in 2020

The company’s revenue saw a growth of 66 per cent Y-o-Y to A$58 million in FY20. The change was on account of a rise in uptake of the Megaport’s services as technology companies shifted their workers to work-from-home arrangements. In 1Q FY21, the company’s product uptake saw a sharp rise with quarterly 566 new Ports, up 10 per cent QoQ, and 138 new customers added up 7 per cent QoQ. Both of these were record quarterly increases.
