How To Select A Plan To Meet Your Expectations
The nbn™ is essential for business but not all nbn™ plans are built for business.TasmaNet Unlimited Business nbn™ is built for customers that know that advertised download speeds don’t mean much if your business data is competing with the neighbourhood Netflix traffic over a connection with too many subscribers.
Unlike the big telcos, we're business grade nbn™ specialists. Because we’re an accredited nbn™ wholesale provider we control congestion at every level of the network to ensure that your Unlimited Business nbn™ service meets your business expectations.
Step 1 Use the information in these tabs to match a plan type to your business expectation:
- Expected Data Usage: match your expected data usage to the best plan type, plan speed, and contention ratio to make the most of our unlimited data.
- Contention Ratio: we don’t over subscribe our plans and unlike other nbn™ providers we tell you how many subscribers share our bandwidth.
- Plan Speeds: we provision plans at 25Mbps, 50Mbps, 100Mbps, 250Mbps, and 1000Mbps speeds to suit every size and kind of business.
- Network Technology: not all nbn™ connections are equal. Check Your nbn™ Availability to find out what network technology connects your business.
Make the most of unlimited data.TasmaNet Unlimited Business nbn™ plans offer unlimited data with no shaping, however it is important to select a plan appropriate for your business expectations.
For example, we anticipate that a business with two staff will use up to 2TB of data per month for standard activities, making the Home Office plan an ideal selection. Specialised business activity, such as heavy video editing, may exceed this expectation.
If your standard data usage expectation is more than 2TB, we recommend you consider a Business Standard plan. You can still select the Home Office plan but you may find that at times your service could slow down. We do not limit your use of the service, or your download speed, but the service may not always meet your expectations.
TasmaNet Unlimited Business nbn™ plan usage is subject to our Acceptable Use Policy.
Over subscription – a contentious issue.nbn™ wholesale pricing is publicly available and sets the cost of handing data from the nbn™ to a Retail Service Provider (RSP) network. To meet market pricing expectations, RSPs share connection capacity between more than one subscriber as it is likely that subscribers will not all use 100% of data at the same time.
The number of subscribers sharing bandwidth is the contention ratio. Every RSP decides what contention ratio to offer their customers, and at what price. It’s a tricky balance between offering the lowest price, maintaining profitability, and meeting customer expectations of download speeds.
The higher the contention ratio, the greater the likelihood of internet speeds slowing at peak times as more subscribers attempt to use data simultaneously. A quick look at online reviews demonstrates that many RSPs over subscribe their nbn™ services, at least in the eyes of many of their customers frustrated by slower than advertised speeds.
Our solution is complete transparency. We publish the contention ratios in place for each TasmaNet Unlimited Business nbn™ plan so that you can select a plan that meets your performance expectations.
Why can’t I get the speed the advertisement promised?Plan Speed refers to the maximum theoretical download and upload speeds that can be delivered over the nbn™ for each plan.
Speeds can be affected by factors within our control, such as the contention ratio of the service, and factors beyond our control, such as the content being downloaded by the end-user, your distance and the quality of the copper from the node or basement for services using FTTN and FTTB nbn™ network technology, the location of your Wi-Fi router/modem, and the number of connected devices running through your router at the same time.
Use these guidelines to help you select the right plan speed to meet your expectations:
- 25Mbps is ideal for home offices and small businesses that use the internet for everyday browsing.
- 50Mbps is perfect for multiple users streaming video, running multiple applications, or working from home.
- 100Mbps is designed for lots of users actively online at the same time. It’s great for 4K streaming, and downloading and uploading large files.
- 250Mbps and 1000Mbps are heavy duty business grade solutions for high capacity users.
Not all nbn™ connections are equal.The nbn™ is upgrading existing network infrastructure to work with the broadband access network rollout. The type of network connection to your business may restrict the TasmaNet Unlimited Business nbn™ plans available to you, and can affect your user experience. You may require an nbn™ technician appointment to have your service installed. If you are in a new development area and not already connected to the nbn™, a New Development Charge may also be applied by nbn™.
Check Your nbn™ Availability to find out what type of network technology is used to connect your business.TasmaNet uses nbn™ Fixed Wireless and Fixed Line network connections to deliver broadband internet services to our business customers.
Fixed Wireless connections are typically used when the distance between premises can be many kilometres. Data travels from a transmission tower located as much as 14kms from a premises to a rooftop antenna. Fixed Wireless connections also require an nbn™ network device to be installed at the point where the cable from the roof antenna enters the premises. This device requires power to operate, and can only be installed by an approved nbn™ Installer or service provider.
Fixed Line connections utilise a physical line running to the premises:
- Fibre to the Node (FTTN) connections use the existing copper network to make the final part of the nbn™ network connection from a FTTN cabinet or micro-node to your premises. The fibre node (usually a street cabinet) allows the nbn™ network signal to travel over optic fibre from the exchange to the cabinet, and connect with the existing copper network to reach your premises.
- Fibre to the Curb (FTTC) is a new access technology that is planned to be available from early 2018. An FTTC connection is used in circumstances where fibre is extended close to your premises, connecting to a small Distribution Point Unit (DPU), generally located inside a pit on the street. From here, the existing copper network is connected to the fibre to form the final nbn™ connection. To power the FTTC service and provide your connection, an FTTC nbn™ connection device will be required inside your business.
- Fibre to the Building (FTTB) connections are generally used when connecting an apartment block or similar types of buildings to the nbn™ network. A fibre optic line is run to the building communications room from where the existing technology in the building is used to connect to each apartment.
- Fibre to the Premises (FTTP) connections run an optic fibre line from the nearest available fibre node to your premises. FTTP requires an nbn™ network device to be installed inside your premises. This device requires power to operate and can only be installed by an approved nbn™ Installer or service provider.
