Firstnet's 50% reduction provides a low cost solution for remote workers to be connected to the Inte

Added: (Tue Sep 04 2001)


Firstnet is introducing a 50% reduction in installation charges to its USB ADSL package making it even more cost effective for businesses to connect their remote workers to the Internet.

This special offer will be running for 3 months from 1st October to the 31st of December 2001 and will apply to the installation charges which will be halved to just 85 during this period. The monthly charge for this service remains at just 45 per month.

ADSL (Asymmetric Digital Subscriber Line) allows large volumes of digital information to be carried at high speed over existing telephone lines without high on-going costs. The service is generally offered at downstream data rates from 512 Kbps to a maximum of 2 Mbps (over 60 times faster than conventional modem connection) making it suitable for companies using the Internet, Video conferencing, ASP (Application Service Provision) or for large downloads.

Where businesses have their staff working from home or remote offices the USB ADSL option ensures that the connection to the Internet is secure, reliable and very cost effective. ADSL allows straightforward budgeting due to a fixed monthly charge and offers an effective solution for any home or remote office worker who needs to make telephone calls or send faxes and use the Internet at the same time.
