Hi

We're based in CHC and get 2mbs upstream speed on teltra cable. I have an employee in AKL (beside Eden Park in Kingsland) who needs the same speed - but we can't find ANY ISP who can offer it. Surely there must be? Other businesses must need upstream speeds of more than 512kbps or 1mbs

Any help much appreciated
Cheers

ADSL2+ is limited to an Upstream Speed of around 1Mbps, so unless your employee lives in an area that has Fibre, or perhaps an area within the 750 metre radius from an exchange where Vodafone is conducting their VDSL trials, then you would be out of luck.  AFAIK, Kingsland would not be within range of either of these alternatives.

One other possible option would be Araneo Wireless as offered by various ISPs, but the price will probably be prohibitive for the amount of data that you want to shift.

A UNS connection (SHDSL) from WorldxChange is able to do 2Mbps (it comes in 512Kbps, 1Mbps, and 2Mbps).

PM me your address and I'll get a pricing for you.

Vector fibre can be a cost effective way of doing things plus has slightly better reliability over UNS...

using a partners like maxnet you could also create a MPLS based WAN between your offices for secure communications...

Completely agree about fibre, you can't get a better internet connection.  Unfortunately ratty123's employee is at a residential address, and I'd hate to think what the install and monthly costs would be.

Thanks all for your advice on this issue - yes, we're constrained by employee being at a residential address so solutions look to be cost prohibitive ... so we sit and wait ..... hopefully not too long. thks again

well the monthly costs wouldn't be too bad if they have a split national / international speeds. afterall UNS isn't exactly cheap either.... The build cost on the other hand then might be larger than life.

What about wireless? Cant wired country do 2mbps upload?

or you could even get two DSL connections to the house and use a dual wan router to combine the two connections together..

UNS normally costs around $300 to install and has a 12 month contract.  With Wired Country, it really depends if you can see one of their wireless stations.

The DSL idea is a good idea, though the only ISP that I know of that does it is Snap. Might pay to give them a call.

Are you referring to port bonding or something like that cos as far as I'm aware of no ISP has brought that out here yet. As for simultanious logins... well thats something different all together which is what I'm guessing you're talking about but you'd still need the two lines.

I was thinking of just getting two phone lines, two ADSL logins and a dual WAN router or pfsense to combine the two connections to get 2x the speed to meet the upstream requirement. Could even get it from two different ISPs if you wanted redundancy...

Yes they offer 2 ndsl circuits with 1 public ip address they load balance the connections and join them together again in their core network.

That is not possible as each session needs to use the same public ip for the entire time. unless you can join thm together again at another point then there is no advantage to that except for reliability.




Hmmmm

Snap can do dual links over Naked DSL, the initial install cost (most of which is cisco equipment) and as this is a business grade product ongoing monthly costs due to SLA and monitoring will probably be a little more than the OP is looking at.

Cheers.
