Wellington Fibre Diversity

Vital Access Fibre

Leverage Vital’s own Wellington fibre network in conjunction with Chorus to architect a solution for your clients that guarantees more resiliency and, as a result, more uptime.

Who is Vital Access for?

Adding diversity and resilience to your clients’ connectivity is “vital” (excuse the pun) when they have business critical apps in play, whether on-site or hosted in the cloud, they can’t afford to be offline.

Vital Access is delivered over Vital’s own fibre network, which makes it an excellent secondary connection to ensure your clients’ uptime.
