Smartlinx3 is a Layer 2, open-access regional broadband network provider,
With a new shareholding structure, Smartlinx 3 obtained a Chorus UFB/ADSL & VDSL handover, as well as an Internet Handover, so has moved from being just a fibre provider to being a full ISP (internet service provider).
Smartlinx 3 has its own fibre around the Porirua CBD, Upper Hutt CBD and Lower Hutt CBD, so can provide a reliable layer 2 service to councils and businesses needing connectivity in those areas using the SL3 fibre backbone.
Within these zones, Smartlinx 3 can provide a safe and secure diverse fibre service, fully independent from the Chorus network.
Outside these zones we can lease a chorus fibre, and connect this to our network, to provide the same connectivity options and SLA’s as though you were connected via Smartlinx 3 fibre.
We can also plug a layer 3 internet feed into the back to provide your internet and phone requirements.
Our shareholders include the Upper Hutt, Lower Hutt and Porirua City Councils, and the Torotoro Waea shareholder group (largest shareholder within the Torotoro Waea shareholder group is the Te Pihopatanga o Aotearoa Trust Board).
