Recently we announced that Voyager Internet had acquired the business of Net24. Voyager is a high-quality, boutique business ISP that is big enough to cope with anything, but small enough to care.
One of the most common questions we receive at Net24 is "Can you provide my Internet?" - Well now we can, through Voyager! We'd love for all of our customers to be able to experience the fast speeds of VDSL, backed by the rock solid support that the combined Voyager Net24 team offers, so read on below for an announcement from Voyager about the exciting launch of VDSL.
At Voyager we’re obsessed with speed, so we’re excited to announce our official launch of VDSL.
Voyager has been trialing VDSL with select customers for a few months, and is now ready for full-scale nationwide deployment. VDSL allows speeds of up to 50Mbps downloads and 10Mbps uploads over standard copper phone lines. Around half the people who currently have standard ADSL broadband can get Voyager VDSL right now.
Truenet, the company selected by the NZ Government to monitor broadband performance, says “Speedtests show VDSL is the fastest technology available until the Government’s fibre rollout arrives in 1 to 5 years. So why are very few ISP’s offering it?”
Voyager agrees that there are not enough high-speed options for small businesses who want faster Internet than ADSL can deliver, but aren’t prepared to wait 5 years for UFB, or to pay $1,000 a month or more for a non-UFB fibre internet service. Voyager VDSL will provide an important stop-gap solution for many businesses who can’t wait for fibre to arrive on their door.
One of the biggest problems with ADSL is the slow upload speed of 800kbps. With VDSL this is increased to 10Mbps, or around 12x faster. The increased upload speed enables a business to do things previously not possible such as:
- High Definition Video conferencing.
- Run all your office phones over VOIP, saving costs
- Backup your office files offsite, without slowing down your internet link
- Connect into the office using VPN at speeds that allow multiple employees to work from home
