Primus hits the gas with 6Mbps business ADSL service

Following the launch of its high-powered iSpeed dial-up service last year, Primus has launched a ultra-speed ADSL product which promises users download speeds of up to 6Mbps.

Targeted at business and corporate users, the product will be offered as an extension of Primus Telecom’s existing business plans, giving customers a minimum of 2Mbps for downloading and 384Kbps for uploading data.

According to a press statement from Primus, customers will be able to access maximum speeds of 6Mbps/640Kbps. The higher speeds will be possible because the service is not be limited to 2Mbps “but will run as fast as the customer’s line quality allows at any time”.

In order to be able to run the 6Mbps service, customers will need to be within 1.5km of a Primus DSLAM, a Primus spokesperson said.

Primus also can’t guarantee the lower 2Mbps speed, the spokesperson said.

“However, when we install the service, we test to see if it can sustain a minimum of 2Mbps download during the test…if so, the line is commissioned at a maximum speed of 6Mbps. If the line can't sustain 2Mbps, we will offer our customers a standard 1.5Mbps service instead.”

The boosted ADSL service will be available from 9 March for $185 per month, including 1GB of downloads per month. Higher download limits are also available.

In comparison, the ISP’s entry-level BizJet business ADSL plans, which are based on 256Kbps download speeds, are $71.50 per month (including 500MB of data) or $49.50 (with no data included).

Last December, Primus announced it would begin offering its dial-up Internet users download speeds of up to 168Kbps through its new iSpeed product.

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
