Customer receipts, however, fell 22 per cent on the previous quarter to clock in at $20.2 million following on from what the company described as a "record high" of $25.8 million in the previous quarter.

The company managed to keep cash outflows subdued compared to the previous period stemming from cost-saving initiatives, settlement timings, lower staff costs and a modestly reduced marketing spend.

Network operating cash outflows were $8.7 million compared to $10.7 million in the previous quarter.

Megaport rounded off the quarter with roughly $141.5 million in cash and equivalents.

In terms of operational activities over the period, Megaport announced the launch of Megaport Virtual Edge, which it describes as an on-demand vendor-neutral
