Vox Fixed LTE-A Failover

Vox Fixed LTE-A Failover automatically switches you over to the Fixed LTE-A network as a backup connectivity medium in the event of a Fibre outage or when your Fibre is temporarily unavailable.

Consider this as your ultimate backup plan for uninterrupted access to the Internet to ensure you always stay connected.

When paired with a UPS, this solution offers total peace of mind, knowing that you’re still able to access the Internet at Fibre-like speeds to ensure seamless business continuity, not to mention stay in the loop during that all-important Teams meeting, if your primary line goes down.

With Vox Fixed LTE-A Failover, you’ll enjoy:

  • Competitively priced Data bundles
  • The option to add Top Ups as a once-off purchase when your Fibre / Wireless line is down or subscribe to a monthly recurring Data bundle
  • The flexibility of month-to-month contracts with no long-term commitment
  • Proactive monitoring on the status of your Fibre line with 2GB of monthly inclusive Data to switch you over when the need arises
