Aussie Broadband hits 100th nbn™ Enterprise Ethernet service, unveils new TC-4 plans
Media Release | Thursday, 30 Apr 2020 | 2 min read
Aussie Broadband has today announced it has reached its 100th nbn™ Enterprise Ethernet active connection.
Aussie was one of the first telcos to start selling the service after NBN Co launched it it.
“We’re extremely delighted to reach our 100th active service,” said General Manager Sales Aaron O’Keeffe.
“We’ve seen a huge increase in the number of business users signing up to nbn™ Enterprise Ethernet product – which offers high speeds, delivered over a reliable, high performance network and with business grade service levels,” he said.
He believes nbn™ Enterprise Ethernet is the best way for businesses that require high bandwidth to connect their Local Area Networks (LANs) with the internet, and to deliver the performance required for their Wide Area Networks (WANs).
Aaron says a wired connection such as enterprise ethernet offers businesses a big range of advantages over other technologies.
“Enterprise Ethernet is delivered via a fibre optic cable and features symmetrical plans ranging from nbn™ 100/100 to nbn™ 1000/1000, with free installation to a lot of nbn™ fixed line footprint*,” he said.
“This makes it an attractive option for businesses that need symmetrical bandwidth, who are using it for everything from SDWAN, cloud computing and disaster recovery backup to the sharing, storage and transfer of increasingly large amounts of data.”
Aussie Broadband also unveiled new TC-4 plans and pricing for business customers:
TC-4 plans from nbn™ 50/20 to nbn™ 1000/400 have significant price reductions, particularly in the higher bandwidth plans. For example, the nbn™ 1000/400 plan was priced at $699 and is now $429.
It has also introduced higher bandwidth TC-4 offerings of nbn™ 500/200 and nbn™ 1000/400 into the small business plans (these services will offer basic support from 8am – midnight. However, customers have the option to upgrade to the enterprise bronze, silver or gold support packs which include higher service level agreements and support hours).
“We’ve noticed that during these challenging times, TC-4 services are in high demand for businesses looking at digital transformation and moving to online trade. This is because the service order-to-activation process is really quick, in some cases as little as 15 minutes, and it offers higher bandwidth,” Aaron said.
Aussie Broadband has also launched a new dedicated business sales call centre based in Lynbrook, in the South East of Melbourne.
“We’re here to make it easy for anyone to access support for business telco services. We have an all-Australian support team who fully understand the needs of our business customers,” he said.
“We know that one of the biggest challenges, from SMEs through to enterprise customers, is the time and complexity of ordering services from the Big 4. So we now offer a full end-to-end online signup for enterprise NBN services,” he said.
