Critical Information Summary Midband Ethernet

This summary gives you the important information you need to know about your plan. It covers things like the length of your contract, how much you need to pay each month, what’s included and what’s not.

Information about the Service

Your plan gives you access to a Midband Ethernet broadband service. Midband Ethernet is the term we use to describe a broadband service with the same speeds for uploads and downloads (known as a symmetric service).

Availability

Broadband Solutions Business Broadband Midband Ethernet is not available everywhere. Availability depends on a number of factors, including whether the necessary equipment is available at the relevant exchange, the length of cable to the nearest telephone exchange and the quality of the existing telephone service. It also depends on which upstream provider is supplying the service at that exchange.

You need a fixed telephone service in order to get Midband Ethernet. You also need a router. You can use your own router provided it is compatible with our Midband Ethernet service. We support Cisco 1841, Cisco 1941 and Cisco 2921. Alternatively, you can purchase a Cisco1941 from us for an upfront charge of $1290.00, or a Cisco 2921 for an upfront charge of $3500.00. Hardware can either be picked up from our Melbourne office or be delivered. Our standard delivery charge which covers most products is $35.00

Minimum Term

36 months.

The minimum term applicable to this service is 36 months from the date of activation. There is $0.00 setup fee on the 36 month term.

Your Monthly Data Allowance

This service comes with an unlimited upload/download data allowance each month. There are no peak/off-peak restrictions on your use, and no excess usage charges.

Important Conditions

The actual speed of your service is likely to be slightly slower than the Access Speed you choose. This is because the protocols you use to transmit data use up some of the bandwidth, resulting in a slower speed.

Information about Pricing

Your Minimum Monthly Charge
