Fusion Broadband pair bonded

One pair and two pair jacks

(One pair and two pair jacks)

Today we began offering pair bonded (four wire) Fusion Broadband, which can offer up to double downstream and upstream speeds for residential and small business users.

DSL technology has made just a few revolutionary steps in the last decade, and this is the next step.

In 1998, we offered the initial version of ADSL1, which topped out at speeds of up to 6Mbps.

Then, in 2008 we offered ADSL2+, with a maximum speed of 18Mbps.

Today, with the roll-out of pair bonding, we have passed another milestone in bringing faster Internet access to customers, with speeds of up to 30Mbps.

Services are available with dynamic IPs, or with eight static IP addresses.

Currently our Fusion Broadband products are offered on a standalone basis, without POTS voice telephone service.  For customers who want a standard voice line delivered with Fusion, that service will be available soon.

For those seeking mobile voice service, Fusion Broadband can be bundled with Sonic.net Verizon mobile service, yielding up to $5/mo savings for a full year.

Fusion Broadband can also be bundled with Sonic.net DirecTV, for a $10/mo savings for eighteen months on the television bill.

We’ve also seen some inquiries about qualification distances for these products.  While qualification distance can vary based upon individual conditions, here are the general guidelines.  This is subject to change based upon our observations about performance in the field, because we never want to over promise and fail to deliver.
