PlaNet News & Views


With a phone connected known as Clothed Broadband

Free Connection

PlaNet offers all and every broadband service. We do not cap your speed or throttle back to dial up speed when you reach your plans data limit but instead charge $2.50 per gig of data used over your plans limit each month, this ensures that you receive maximum speed continually through the month. PlaNet was built on the foundation of data speed, i.e. we do not oversell our data capacity and undercut service quality for short term profit, PlaNet does now, and will continue to supply enough data capacity so that what you buy and pay for is what you get. While we provide this service as broadband is delivered on the Telecom network there is no guaranteed minimum line speed performance, no matter what plan is purchased. The line rate is the peak speed a customer can burst to, for short periods of time, not a full-time committed bandwidth guarantee. The number of concurrent users will impact on the speed that the end user experiences.
