SlipStream DSL: Introduction

NETinc is proud to announce the availability of SlipStream DSL for business users. Operating over telephone wires, SlipStream DSL is the most affordable of new business communication solutions available in Hamilton.

SlipStream DSL is a dedicated, point-to-point connection from you to the nearest SlipStream DSL access point, and from there, directly to the Internet. You are not sharing your line with your neighbors, and therefore no "snooping" can take place, and nobody else can "hog" the line. The line can go as high as 1.5 Megabits per second, which is nothing short of astonishing.

On the back end, we connect the SlipStream DSL access points via 155 Megabits per second "OC3" fiber optic circuits, via the Hamilton Metropolitan Area Network (HydroMAN).

Areas Served

We are now in Phase 2 of roll-out. If you are located in an area to be served in a later phase, please check back soon for a way to add yourself to the SlipStream DSL waiting list.
