SYDNEY, 7 June 2010 – Pacnet, Asia’s leading business telecommunications service provider, today announced the launch of its new range of business grade ADSL Internet plans with included data of up to 300GB per month and deliver increased value for Small to Medium Enterprises (SMEs).

“The plan options are not only competitively priced but more importantly, offer large data allowances that will assist many businesses in avoiding the shock of an unexpected large bill at the end of the month, “ said Deborah Homewood, Chief Executive Officer of Pacnet Australia and New Zealand.

As more Australian businesses deploy more web-based applications, they are also increasingly concerned about incurring more data usage charges on their Internet access plans. Pacnet addresses these concerns with its new ADSL2+ plans which start from A$149.95 per month for 100GB of downloads per month, at speeds of up to 20Mbps downstream and up to 1Mbps upstream.

The new plans also includes a high-volume option with up to 300GB of downloads per month at just A$299.95 per month.

“Pacnet is abreast of the growing demands of the business community and has responded by offering options that are keeping with the rapid pace with which businesses adopt new Internet technologies.  These include the widespread use of business critical applications such as email, hosted applications, video conferencing, and web hosting,” stressed Ms Homewood.

The new plans are business grade, come with a static IP address, 10 free mailboxes and a back up dial-up account. Excess data is charged at 6c/MB and contract lengths range from month-to-month, 12 months and 24 months.

“As with all our business grade services, customers will have 24x7 access to our qualified technical support team that has a long history of service excellence. We believe businesses will appreciate the high level of customer service that we deliver to the market, and we back our Business DSL services with a 99% service level guarantee,” added Ms Homewood.
