ADSL2 Power Up and ADSL2 Fusion


ADSL2+ is by far the most popular broadband technology deployed in Australia today. It works extremely well for many, many users at a very affordable price point.

Some facts about ADSL2+

The ‘A’ stands for ‘Asymmetric’ which means download speeds are faster than upload speeds

It’s a copper-based broadband technology, so that means performance will be limited by distance from the exchange

Most ADSL2+ services are geared towards home or small business users, so will usually be contended, further limiting performance

ADSL2+ upload is very easy to ‘max out’, and when it is fully utilised, overall latency skyrockets and your download speeds and general 'usability' will be severely impacted

We go into these issues in detail in our Technologies and Networks section.


ADSL2+ falls just short for some users Many business customers are finding that as their usage grows, and their business operations become more dependent on their broadband, they outgrow the capability of their ADSL2+ connection. The symptoms could be slow download or upload, dropouts or complaints from staff and customers.

This growth hasn’t happened over night – it’s been a gradual process that will likely continue. Businesses in these circumstances probably don’t want to make the jump to a full-blown corporate grade solution with the associated cost. They just want ADSL2+ that ‘works a bit better’ than their current connection.

The current provider can’t give them more because there’s nothing they can do about how far they are from the exchange.
The current provider could give a better grade, or uncontended, service at a higher price, but what’s the point if speed is ultimately limited by distance from the exchange?

Most ADSL2+ services (and ADSL1 services) would work much better if they had a bit more upload speed and better still if usage was properly managed and they were also not contended with other users.


Give your ADSL2+ a boost We can give ADSL2+ a shot in the arm with two of our Smart-Net products.

With ADSL2 Power Up, you keep your own ADSL2+ service as the primary connection and we deploy our SmartBridge technology to 'divert' upload traffic across a fixed wireless link. You keep your low cost, contended ADSL2+ service to use for non-critical data, and more important data passes across the wireless link. You wireless service can also act as a supplimentary download path.




ADSL2 Power Up could be for you if your situation sounds like this:

  • Your general Internet downloads are ok, but could be better
  • You get a big download allowance which you use most of
  • You are in contract with your current provider
  • You have certain websites you go to that need to work well all of the time but don’t
  • Your remote users / customers complain of slow access
  • You have a VPN that drops out regularly


With ADSL2 Fusion, we provide both the ADSL2+ and the fixed wireless connection, working in tandem as one. Both connections are corporate grade, meaning the service is uncontended. If you like the sound of ADSL2 Power Up, but want all of your traffic to run better, not just some, you can achieve this with ADSL2 Fusion.


FREE BONUS FEATURE Both ADSL2 Power Up and ADSL2 Fusion have automatic redundancy built in. If either the ADSL2+ or the wireless fails, the other can carry the traffic!


I can’t afford to spend any more money on broadband Do some simple calculations. If you have 10 users and they lose just 5 minutes of productivity every day due to poor performing broadband, do you know how much that is costing your business per month at average wages?

10 users x 5 minutes x 20 days x $0.56/min = $560 per month!!

If our solution is less than that, it doesn’t cost you money, you are saving money!!
