High-speed, point-to-point or point-to-multipoint networking

Delivered on Australia’s largest fibre network, Telstra's National Ethernet offers a reliable, high-performance and low latency Ethernet service with national reach and that is nbn™ ready.

Key features

From new cloud workloads, additional branch sites and increasing demands for bandwidth from business apps and connected devices, your company’s network performance has never been under more pressure.

That’s why our National Ethernet solution provides high-speed, point-to-point or point-to-multipoint networking to give you control of your connectivity and public and private clouds.

Give your critical applications the bandwidth they need

Make sure your apps, cloud and back-ups are running at peak performance with low latency connectivity over uncontended fibre.

A network you can rely on

We offer a 99.999% availability target, equating to less than six minutes of downtime a year on our fully redundant option.

Reach more places

Take advantage of the scale of our national network, covering metropolitan and regional areas alike without the cost and complexity of multiple network vendors.

A flexible network designed for you

We offer flexible options to meet your business needs, including one-to-one or one-to-many options for site connectivity and the ability to use your own IP devices to manage routing.

Efficiency and value

Create cost-effective performance by linking multiple sites without the additional cost of a layer 3 solution.

How it works

Using Telstra's powerful Ethernet over fibre network, Telstra National Ethernet provides uncontended, highly available and low latency bandwidth on Australia's largest fibre network.
