AAPT delivers 80Mbps Ethernet service

By

AAPT has launched what it says is its fastest Mid-Band Ethernet (MBE) service to date, with an Ethernet-over-copper service delivering up to 80Mbps.

AAPT says that by leveraging existing copper infrastructure and doubling the maximum speed available for MBE services it is able to deliver a cost-effective, business-grade Ethernet service for metropolitan and regional businesses, without the need for fibre builds.

AAPT CEO David Yuile said the new service provided speeds and features ideal for today’s rapidly-changing corporate requirements, particularly Cloud and IP Voice services. “In 2007 AAPT became the first telecommunications infrastructure company to deliver MBE with speeds of up to 40Mbps. We have now successfully doubled that speed

“The significance of the new MBE offering is that customers can experience fast business connection without the need for fibre, minimising costs and maximising productivity yet with greater speed and flexibility than traditional DSL connections," he said. “As Ethernet is readily available on most existing routers and switches, customers are not hit with the extra connection costs and time delay associated with fibre.”

The service is now available in 219 exchanges. AAPT says it plans to have the service available in 267 exchanges by the end of 2013.
