Primus has finally become the first company to release true broadband in Australia with speeds reaching a scorching 6 megabytes per second – 4 times faster than Telstra Bigpond’s highest speed plan.
Telstra has throttled ADSL to lower speeds for known reasons – they do not want business to see its true potential. At speeds of 6 megabytes per second – users would be able to see the Internet’s true potential with the ability to download movies and music at sensational speeds.
The most important aspect of this speed though is true capabilities in relation to speech over the Internet, which will cost Telstra billions in revenues. With VOIP (Voice Over Internet Protocol) businesses could ditch Telstra altogether and save thousands of dollars per year.
