Hey Guys,

Due to the utter crapness of Woosh DSL I am seriously looking at moving to XNET very soon.

When I do a line check on my number from their website it says:

UBS (Unbundled Bitstream Service) is available in the exchange area servicing the premesis for the line number requested

The estimated downstream linerate for this query is > 4Mbit/s

However, when I query some other numbers some say the same as what I get, but others say:

Xnet HSI is available.


Can someone please explain the difference here?

Hello adamj ,

I'm personally not to sure myself it's using a Telecom system but either response would indicate DSL service should be available for your numbers. However please be aware that the checker is not a 100% gaurantee as things can and on occassions do crop up that result in service not being provided.

Thanks Nicholas,

We do currently have DSL so that isnt an issue, just wondered if there was any difference in service between "UBS" and "XNET HSI". Just spoke to one of your sales team and I just have to made some changed to our Woosh DSL account then I will arrange the switch.

Thanks for getting back to me.

Hello adamj,

The UBS term is Telecoms product the HSI is ours, they are the same service just rebranded in our case.
