Broadband on demand a game changer for Australian hotel operators

06 May 2014: Broadband Solutions, one of Australia’s most successful business internet service providers, has partnered with Reivernet, an Australian based internet gateway, to deliver burstable ‘bandwidth on demand’ to the Australian hospitality sector. The innovative technology allows businesses to only pay for the bandwidth they use, with automatic ‘bursting’ to satisfy increased demand for unique guest needs, special events and conferences when required.

The technology is the first of its kind in Australia and has been specifically designed to cater to the unique needs of the hospitality industry.

Sam Bashiry, Managing Director of Broadband Solutions said: “We are absolutely thrilled to be able to bring this technology to the Australian marketplace. Hotels have a unique need for short term bandwidth flexibility. Prior to our solution this could only be done on expensive, inflexible, long-term contracts, often taking months to approve and install.”

Australian first product designed specifically for hotels to dramatically reduce broadband and telephony costs for hotels and their guests.

‘Burstable’ bandwidth – hotels only pay for bandwidth used, with up to 1000Mbps available automatically when required.

“Our new service promises to dramatically reduce the broadband and telephony costs for hotel operators by instantly opening up additional bandwidth for hotels when and if they need it. It’s a major game-changer.”

“Hotels can pay for speeds as low as 2Mbps, and burst to 1000Mbps in real time, as needed. This means that they will only ever pay for the bandwidth they use, providing a better value service to their customers. It’s a superior and more stable product than those currently on the market and is just a fraction of the price – a win-win for customers and operators,” said Mr. Bashiry.

The technology has already been rolled out in select Langham and Marriott properties. “Some of Australia’s leading businesses are already harnessing the value of burstable broadband. Their guests enjoy simple, secure and fast broadband, while the venues operate at the most efficient price point possible,” said Mr Bashiry.

The product is available alongside Broadband Solutions’ wide range of hospitality focused solutions, including all-IP based PABX networks and direct NBN services, reinforcing the company’s position as the leading provider of hospitality broadband services.
