Affordable, Unconstrained 1Gigabit/Second Fibre Optic Networking

Removing the Shackles on Speed and Costs

Ultra 1G unshackles you from traditional network service constraints of static arbitrary speed limitations and high pricing that is fixed at the maximum capacity level of the service.

Unconstrained 1Gigabit per Second Speed

Ultra 1G provides full two-way access to the 1Gbps "light-paths" on the fibre optic network, enabling you unconstrained communications speed without any data rate limiting or link sharing. This means the capacity is available between you and the CityLink switching core - no artificial limitations.

Affordable Pricing 

Ultra 1G uses a pricing approach which is based on the overall monthly level of actual usage rather than the common market pricing approach which sets the price base on various speed limited rates.

The pricing structure is simple. It is constituted from a standard monthly base access rate fee for Ultra 1G, any optional feature fees, and 7 cost steps for levels of utilisation. In the case of new service links there is a one time installation charge.
