Skyway West Adds Cable Internet Service for Vancouver and area Business

29. February 2012 Internet Services 0

There is a new cable high speed internet option for Vancouver and area businesses, offering identical pricing as Shaw’s cable business retail rates but with considerable added value.

Skyway West is accepting orders for its new cable high speed business Internet service on May 1, 2012. Our cable services are delivered to us over a private connection between our network and Shaw cable. The private connection avoids the uncertainty of the Internet and allows us to enhance cable with our value-added services.

Every Skyway West cable service includes a block of 5 static IP addresses that, unlike Shaw’s own cable service, will not change when you move or when Shaw imposes a network reorganization. Skyway static IP’s can also be transferred to our ADSL and Fibre services when your business needs change, and our cable customers can name their own reverse look-ups, which is crucial for some mail servers.

Unlike Shaw cable, Skyway applies Quality of Service (QoS) rules to all our cable services. We prioritize DNS look ups, VoIP and RDP traffic before any other traffic and can apply custom rules if you prefer. Prioritizing traffic is important for any business running Voice over IP or connecting multiple locations over a Wide Area Network. We can also mitigate, though not completely eliminate, the large variances in latency inherent with cable.

Connecting directly to Shaw cable allows us extend our ADSL and Fibre private networking services to Cable. Intersite traffic never leaves our network and we can protect you from denial of service attacks.

I.T. administrators will have access to the same usage graphs, traffic analysis etc. that Skyway offers for our other high speed internet customers.

Monthly pricing is identical to Shaw’s business retail rates and will soon be posted on our web site. Meanwhile, feel free to contact us anytime for a quote and to see if Cable is an option at your Vancouver Lower Mainland location.
