C&W Optus rolls out ADSL


Cable & Wireless Optus has targeted the small- to medium-sized business market with the launch of a broadband ADSL service.

The carrier and its DSL wholesale subsidiary XYZed is promising businesses high-speed Internet connectivity at a lower cost than ISDN or leased line options. Dubbed NetAccess ADSL, the service boasts speeds of up to 2Mbps/256Kbs, but will only be available in city and metropolitan areas.

"Most [SMEs] have not had access to fibre connections and have found alternate technology like ISDN or DDS Fastway too expensive, putting them at a competitive disadvantage," said David Stokes-McKeon, director C&W Optus E-Solutions.

C&W Optus claims that unlike other consumer-focussed ADSL products on the market, NetAccess ADSL has been designed as a "business grade" service. It also comes with a fixed IP address.
