Private Links

Private Links uses many broadband technologies to connect multiple sites together via a network based VPN. Each site can select from the available technologies and optimum speed to suit its purpose. This product caters to the need to securely share data and network resources across many sites with unlimited data transfer across the whole network and at a fixed cost per site.

Added benefits include the ability to apply Quality of Service (QoS) for prioritising data classes and also to centralise internet, firewall and content management resources.

Solutions such as remote terminal services (eg. Citrix), offsite data backup, security cameras and Voice over IP (VoIP) are examples of how businesses benefit from this service. Reducing the need for high cost VPN hardware and the lack of variable data costs are significant advantages. The following technologies are all available to construct a Private Links network.

Mid-band EthernetFrom 2 to 80 MbpsAustralia wide
Premium EthernetFrom 4 to 1,000 MbpsAustralia wide

Establishment fees and hardware requirements vary with speed and technology.  There is no data volume restriction imposed by OntheNet. No internet connection is provided. A minimum of two services is required.

This organisation is fantastic. They are on the gold coast. If you phone up with a problem a secretary answers the phone. You do not speak to someone in another country, the secretary is right here in their office. If you have a problem she will put you through to a technician who will discuss your problem and if necessary come to your house or office to solve your problem. The service is prompt ,professional and excellent. There is no waiting on the phone listening to music for what seems like hours and then get nowhere. They are also inexpensive. I would thoroughly recommend Onthenet if you live on the gold coast. This organisation gets an 11 out of 10 from me. Do yourself a favour and check them out. It takes the worry out of your internet more

An old customer returning, and glad I am. OnTheNet constantly provide a professional, prompt service with a high level of expertise and communication ability. I find their staff approachable, personal and easy to talk to about any problems I have. They facilitated the NBN change-over as professional as you can hope for and I am glad to be more

Love having NBN with these local guys. From the first phone call with Ian, to the installation, they have been so easy and efficient to deal with, unlike my previous broadband provider. Thank you for being such a great and easy company to deal with. And thank you Ian Ibarra ��read more

Cheap and fast and as good a service as any other ISP. Also it's not a giant ISP conglomerate �

I've had years of excellent service with OTN. I recently lost my internet connection due to a fault from a Telstra contractor, and the assistance from the support crew at OnTheNet was very impressive, professional and personal! I was back online very quickly and didn't have to deal with Telstra. Thanks again to the support crew. Tak, you've built a great local business!read more

Review added 8/8/17: I have now been an OntheNet customer for over 10 years and I can say without any hesitation they are what every ISP should strive to be. Their customer service is second to none and I have never felt so well looked after. Just recently we had NBN rollout in our area but due to a NBNco problem we had to wait months for our connection. The entire process was handled by OntheNet and their awesome provisioning team. Paul and the rest of the provisioning team really stepped up to make sure the process moved as quickly as possible. Being able to speak with a local team was the crucial difference as most ISPs would have had me speaking to a overseas call center. I am now the happy owner of blazing fast 100/40mbps internet which has been sensational.I can't recommend OntheNet enough, they know what customer service is and we as locals need to support companies like this. Well done team!read more
