DSL partnership announced in Australia

Australian businesses will have greater broadband choice from June 2002 after an agreement signed by Pacific Internet and NEC Australia. The agreement is for Pacific Internet to deliver a business-grade broadband DSL service over NEC's NEXTEP network, a fiber-optic network that covers 60 percent of Australia's population. "What we can do now that we couldn't do before is guarantee a grade of service with uptime and contention rates, that is the number of people on the service at one time," said Dennis Muscat, managing director of Pacific Internet Australia. The new service will offer speeds of up to 6mbps, which will allow services such as virtual private networks (VPNs), e-commerce, voice-over-IP (VoIP) media streaming, video-on-demand and data convergence, according to Muscat. ZDNet Australia's James Pearce reported from Sydney. To read the full story, visit ZDNet Australia.
