Yes we can :)

Hey just a big ups to Josh and the team at Xnet for helping my friends get on broadband out in Laingholm.  Turned down by Telecom several times due to distance from exchange & other issues, I can now say they are all hooked up and online. After the initial usual rejection when signing up with Xnet, I emailed Josh with a bit more background on this case. Josh followed this up with Telecom who then carried out the appropriate work, and what do ya know it all works!

So another new and happy customer for Xnet. They won't get multi meg speeds here, but 256k will rock along just fine for them. I do hope Telecom will consider investing a bit more much needed infrastructure into this area soon!

So on behalf of my friends
Thanks heaps Xnet




Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend from $150 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?
