Quicksilver Internet to offer 256K, 1M and 2M ADSL


Quicksilver Internet will be one of the first ISP's out of the gate with new 256k, 1M and 2M ADSL plans in November under the Telecom Wholesale Agreement signed recently.

"We're pleased to be able to offer consumers a choice in broadband provider." says Managing Director, Matthew Hobbs, "It's good news that the Telecommunications Commissioner seems to be listening to ISP's concerns about issues around the wholesaling of new higher speed plans. If the government wants a healthy telecommunications industry in New Zealand, they are going to have to step in and level the playing field."

Despite wholesaling issues, consumers are now better off than ever before, with a range of plans available at affordable prices, and the option to put their phoneline and calling through one provider, removing the need to pay Telecom.

Quicksilver is also talking to major retailers about putting ADSL starter packs on shelves, making the process of getting broadband easier for the end user, who is often overwhelmed with the choice and signup process associated with broadband.

Pricing for the new 'Quickfire' ADSL plans starts from $29.95 per month with Quicksilver toll calls, and gives users access to Quicksilver's cheaper calling rates on their home phoneline too. "There are many disillusioned consumers out there who are eager to move phoneline and toll call services to another provider, removing the need to pay a monthly Telecom phonebill says Matthew Hobbs"

New business 256k plans are available already, and give affordable, flatrate ADSL to businesses for the first time. "This is something our business customers have been waiting for," says Hobbs. "We have a substantial small business customer base, who are tired of paying through the nose for excess usage charges and are more than happy with 256k speeds with a flatrate price."
