TPG Dark Fibre

Experience complete bandwidth and protocol flexibility - limited only by the type of equipment you connect at each end - with Dark Fibre. 


Almost unlimited bandwidth

Can carry virtually unlimited bandwidth, limited only by the equipment installed on each end of the service.
Superior reliability

ISO 9001 Certified

TPG operates an ISO 9001:2008 certified management system that assures the quality of installation, management and maintenance.

Complete control of your WAN

Complete bandwidth and network protocol flexibility - upgrade by changing your hardware and upstream configuration.

With TPG Dark Fibre, you can:

  • Rapidly and cost-effectively upgrade without any additional carrier costs as your business requirements and technology evolve
  • Run 10Gbps Ethernet, FibreChannel (SAN) or multiple DWDM wavelengths across the service by connecting the corresponding hardware at each end
  • Benefit from improved reliability and significantly lower latency with dedicated glass when compared to traditional managed carrier services
  • Securely transfer data because the fibre is not shared with other customers
