Hey Guys,
I have been looking for connection options for a branch site in the Porirua region of Wellington. At the moment it is connected by WXC DSL however this can be unreliable and the wiring means that sync rates are shocking. I have been looking at the option of using xtremenetworks smartlinx3:

Anyone had any experience with it? We will probably be transferring 100GB+ national to Auckland per month and very little international. However with that pricing I'm worried if we do end up using lots of international one month. Anyone know if xtremenetworks have an option for more contended int. bandwidth at a cheaper rate?

I've got no experience with Xtreme but it looks like FX networks have coverage there themselves of via one of their partners. I suspect that if you're wanting to transfer 100GB+ p/moth that it may be cheaper, and their service is top notch.

I haven't had experience (or heard too much) with either. The main advantage of smartlinx3 is its wireless - bringing the cost significantly down.. For example we can get a 4mbps connection for $200 per month while I suspect that with fx over citylink that would be closer to $1000 + a hefty installation fee? We don't spend even half that at the main office so I doubt I could put a business case together to justify that spending at the branch.
