TelstraClear introduces business VDSL2 services
TelstraClear says it is now offering New Zealand businesses the fastest DSL broadband in the country, based on VDSL2 technology.

After a successful period of trialling TelstraClear now has VDSL2 available in seven centres and it will be offered in 14 before Christmas.

The VDSL2is service is currently available in business districts of Wellington,Hamilton, Tauranga, Napier, Wanganui, NewPlymouth, Lower Hutt, and parts of Auckland. TelstraClear plans to expand coverage by Cristmas to Dunedin, Palmerston North, Christchurch, Auckland, North Shore, Manukau and Waitakere.

Delivered over its Next IP Network, VDSL2 is currently the most advanced standard of DSL broadband and TelstraClear is the first to introduce it to the New Zealand market.

Head of TelstraClear Business, Brenda Stonestreet, said plans are ideally suited for a wide range of businesses which might have medium- large offices, be connecting server farms, want to run High Definition video-conferencing or could need to shift large data files very quickly.

“VDSL2 is a business enabler. VDSL2 offers speeds typically four times faster than any other available DSL broadband and can take businesses to another level in terms of productivity and efficiency,” Ms Stonestreet said.

“Businesses who trialled VDSL2 with us were impressed by the stability of the speed and the way it enhanced the way they can do business.”

“Combined with the capacity of our all-fibre backhaul, VDSL2 can provide genuine benefits for businesses starting from companies with five or more employees.”

When ideal conditions are met - including being in a short distance from an exchange - the service can offer download speeds up to 30 Mbps and upload speeds up to 7Mbps.

The plans include BizNet Supreme at a cost of NZ$399.99 per month, BizNet Premium at NZ$199.99 per month and BizNet Gold for NZ$49.99 per month. The main difference in each plan is the speed. Businesses combine these with Usage Packs of 1GB, 5GB, 10GB, and 20GB.
