Flash Fibres is a locally owned & operated company in Caloundra, who own their own “carrier grade network” being rolled out on the Sunshine Coast.
Not anymore, fibre optic cables are being instaled in new build areas and there is no guarrantee the fibre optic cable is being run all to way to the exchange or carying on from the exchange. Another problem is funding and the speed they can introduce the service to the general population. The NBN may still be many years away depending on the area you are in.
Very stable. The combination of fibre to the node and the quality radio links on our carrier grade network is a winning combination. Flash Fibres only uses proven technology, carrier grade routing & switching equipment, and operates from some of the best data centres in Australia. Providing quality environmental controls, producing a professional carrier network.
Our Sunshine Coast network is connected via fibre or high capacity licensed radio links. These radio links are immune to interference problems encountered by lesser grade wireless systems which use free to air spectrums for their backbone infrastructure. Licensed radio links are strictly controlled by the ACMA.
Guaranteed residential speeds are between 15Mbs and 50Mbs depending on the plan you choose. Commercially the sky is the limit with commercial speeds between 50Mbs to 1Gb/s. We can offer commercial speeds in residential areas for home based businesses or gamers who require additional upload speed. Anything is possible, contact our office for a free onsite inspection.
Our system is different to the current telephone line system. It requires special hardware and antennas to accept the much higher speeds. This specifically designed hardware needs to be installed so you can receive our high speed service.
A typical residential installation is very fast taking 1-2 hours depending on the building layout. A commercial and high rise/apartment installations are viewed on a case by case basis depending on the customers’ requirements.
You should be up and running within 7 working days, depending on our current roll outs typical installations are completed within 4 days.
No, but reliability of the links as well as bandwidth is. If you put all this together you will achieve great speeds and will enjoy the internet even more. Many people are after speedy internet and looking at the numbers, not realising that the quality of link and bandwidth are more important. This is what happens with NBN. They promising great speeds but reliability of the network is not so great which affects the speeds.
As the installation for a residential connection is amortised over a 24month period contract, the installation fee of $395 plus GST is below our cost price as the quality of hardware used is of a high standard. If you do not wish to take advantage of a 24 month contract, you can pay $650.00 plus GST up front to cover the cost of installation with no lock in contract term.
Including all the major Telco’s, it is impossible to guarantee the speed of a network. What we can say however, is that we have a carrier grade network with high speed downloads and uploads in all our plans, so in the event of a high traffic period, the slower speed would be difficult to notice. We are large enough to respond quickly to network issues and small enough to focus on providing high quality service to the Sunshine Coast.
