Services And Pricing

Westnet provides much more than just residential Internet. They offer businesses a full suite of consulting, networking and IT services. These services include:
  • Remote server maintenance
  • Firewall and security installation
  • Data backup and recovery
  • Outsourced email and applications (such as calendars and mailing lists)
  • Hardware troubleshooting
  • Software troubleshooting
Westnet offers a variety of DSL packages for residential customers. The basic service starts at $30.95/month and delivers download speeds up to 768 Kilobytes per second (K). Their fastest package delivers 1.5 Megabytes per second (Mbps) download speed for $59.95/month. Westnet also offers several unique packages, which deliver upload speeds as high as download speeds. Most residential customers upload very little to the Internet beyond emails and Facebook photographs, but for someone who plans to upload a great deal of content, the 768 K down, 768 K up for $99.95 could be a great option.

Additional Options

Westnet also provides business DSL, which comes at slightly more competitive prices because  although the speeds are still slow by ultra-high-speed standards, their business networks can bear a heavier traffic load. Fortunately, DSL is far from Westnet’s only service. They offer domain name hosting starting at $25/year, as well as a more advanced domain name option with web storage—not a bad deal if you want to have your own website. Finally, Westnet still proudly provides dial-up. Allegedly good for instant messaging, USENET discussion groups, Internet Relay Chat (IRC), FTP file archives, and telnet access to remote hosts, dial-up is a great way to watch pictures load over the course of a minute. Basic dial-up starts at $20/month, but if for some reason you want high-speed dial up that is still slower than DSL, 128 K down costs $50/month. They’ll even give you a free one week trial.
