Internode Ultra SHDSL uses traditional Symmetric High-speed Digital Subscriber Line technology to deliver fully symmetric broadband services at speeds as fast as four megabits per second (Mbps), across more than 350 exchanges nationwide.
The new Ultra SHDSL prices now start from just $300 per month. The flagship Ultra SHDSL plan - Direct-4M-UL 4 Mbps / 4 Mbps Unlimited - drops in price from $2450 a month to just $1200 per month.
This increased affordability of Internode Ultra SHDSL creates a widely available symmetric broadband service for businesses that have outgrown the uplink capacity of their ADSL2+ Internet connection.
For businesses that require faster symmetric broadband services, Internode offers its Extreme SHDSL in key business areas of Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide. Extreme SHDSL starts where regular broadband leaves off, ranging in speed from 5 Mbps to 40 Mbps, supporting next generation applications such as IP Telephony, Internet Virtual Private Networks, onsite web services and IP videoconferencing.
To make Extreme SHDSL more accessible, Internode offers its most popular service combination - a 10Mbps symmetrical bandwidth service with 100 gigabytes (GB) per month of download quota - for $1000 per month, with no installation charges on a 24 month term.
Internode product manager Jim Kellett said Internode's Ultra SHDSL and Extreme SHDSL services provided businesses with immediate access to symmetric broadband until the National Broadband Network became available. "The price reduction makes it even more affordable for businesses to take greater advantage of Internet technology in their operations," he said.
"Whether it's for an Internet connection or a private IP network like Internode Business Connect, we’re finding SHDSL addresses the gap in both price and upload speed between ADSL2+ and Ethernet technologies. It’s proven to be one of our best-selling corporate access products."
