iiNet intros bonded ADSL service for business users

20 Jul 2010

Australian alternative broadband provider iiNet has announced that it has commercially launched bonded ADSL services for business users in a bid to offer higher-speed internet services via traditional copper lines. According to ZDNet.com, iiNet’s bonded service will combine two standard ADSL connections to double the download speeds available, and for current business customers of the ISP the new offering will cost an extra AUD99 (USD86) per month on top of their existing service changes. iiNet says that it will now be able to offer downlink speeds of up to 30Mbps and uplink rates of up to 2.6Mbps via bonded lines, and commenting on the development Steve Harley, iiNet’s general business manager, noted: ‘With bonded DSL, iiNet has overcome the high costs and limited availability associated with fibre-based solutions — potentially doubling customers’ current upload and download speeds for less than AUD100 a month.’
