| File Download |
|Modem 33.6Kpps||ADSL 256Kbps||ADSL 1.5Mbit|
|128kilobytes||30 seconds||4 seconds||1 second|

|40 Megabytes||2.7 hours||21 minutes||3.5 minutes|
How do I check to see if I can get Global Internet ADSL?
You will need to contact us and check. We are aiming at covering all of PNG with ADSL but this is something that is in the hands of Telikom. Once the availability of ADSL to your premises has been confirmed it will still need to be qualified and is dependent on such things as the distance that you are located from the exchange and the quality of the copper cable in place.
What is involved in an ADSL service check?
ADSL cannot be provided on all phone lines. Global Internet will know, or at least will check whether your phone line meets the following basic requirements:
- Your telephone line belongs to an ADSL enabled exchange.
- Your home or business is within a certain distance from a Telikom exchange building.
- Your telephone line is a straight PSTN service without any ADSL incompatible equipment such as PABXs, Commanders, pair gain systems etc.
- There are no incompatible products associated with your telephone line.
- A service qualification check will only be carried out after an agreement for the service has been signed. If the qualification check is positive the service will be installed however if the check is negative you will be advised and your signed agreement will be void.
Please note: If your phone line passes the service qualification test, this does not guarantee that broadband can be successfully installed.
Why can’t I get ADSL?
You may not be able to get ADSL for many reasons but the most common are:
- You are too far from the local telephone exchange.
- The local telephone exchange is not enabled.
How will I know if and when Global Internet ADSL is coming to my area?
Global Internet can record your details and contact you when the service becomes available in your area.
What is the ADSL Set up Fee?
In order to use ADSL your normal telephone line must be enabled for ADSL. This is done at the telephone exchange level and it is unlikely a technician will need to come to your home or office. The one-off fees are:
- REGISTRATION K25.00 - One-time non-refundable registration fee for every new Global Internet customer and ADSL application.
- ADSL ACTIVATION FEE K50.00 - One-time fee payable to Global (collected by us on behalf of Telikom)
- ADSL PORT FEE 17.34 - Collected by us on behalf of Telikom

If I have ADSL installed on an existing telephone/fax line will my existing service will be cancelled?
No. When an existing service is selected for conversion to ADSL, it will still be available for voice/fax services.
Does ADSL pricing differ for regional areas?
Global Internet now has nationwide pricing for all our ADSL packages. To view the latest pricing click here: http://www.global.com.pg/pages/global-internet/internet-plans
Will my normal telephone features work with ADSL?
Your telephone features will work as normal.
Will ADSL affect the quality of my phone service?
Not at all, your phone and ADSL service reside on totally separate frequencies, so you can make calls or send faxes while surfing the Web, and your phone reception is as crisp and clear as ever. However, C-10 central filters are required to be used on each telephone line outlet you are utilising.
Will my telephone line work if my ADSL line goes down?
Most likely your telephone will be all right, but conversely if your telephone doesn't work then it's a safe bet that your ADSL service won't be available either. Re-establishing your ADSL connection might be as simple as restarting your computer or modem/router.
Will a PABX or Commander System work with ADSL?
Yes, but you need to install a central splitter before the PABX or Commander system.
What will I need if I am running a Back-to-Base security system?
A Central splitter/filter must be installed if you are running a back-to-base alarm system on your phone line. In order to install Central Splitter, one should have Telikom approved technician.
Can I use an EFTPOS on the same phone line used for ADSL?
An inline filter may work however you may require a central splitter especially if there are multiple devices on the line (fax/answer machine/EFTPOS/dial up modem).
Why do I need a filter on every device with ADSL?
ADSL services operate on a higher noise frequency in comparison to devices such as telephones, fax machines, Dial up modems, EFTPOS machines and back to base security systems. A filter is needed to filter out this high frequency noise. Without the filter, these devices are basically unusable because of the amount of noise being transmitted. Not having a filter on each device will also cause no connection or intermittent ADSL Internet connection.
An ADSL Filter for a standard telephone handset comes with every modem/router supplied by Global Internet. A filter will be required for every cordless telephone handset and for every fax machine on the same phone line as the ADSL service.
A central splitter must be installed on the service phone line, if you have:
(a) A monitored ‘back to base’ security system, which operates via the same phone line as the broadband service.
(b) More than 3 telephony devices connected to your broadband phone line.
(c) A mode 3 phone socket connected to your broadband phone line.
Installation of any required central splitter hardware is at the customer’s own expense. The customer should contact a Telikom approved technician to install the central splitter.
What speeds should I be downloading at if I have ADSL?
Broadband Speed Average in Kilobytes
256kbps ~25 kilobytes per second
512kbps ~50 kilobytes per second
1.5Mbps ~150 kilobytes per second
How do I test my ADSL speed?
Go to the free download page on Global Internet web site: A good site to test it is at www.speedtest.net. Make sure you use the Port Moresby server to test and make sure no other computers/programs are using the internet.
I'm switching from another ISP to Global Internet; can I use my existing modem?
Yes, but only if it is a Global Internet approved modem.
What modem/routers does Global Internet support?
Global Internet provides technical support for modems/routers that have been purchased from Global Internet.
Can I upgrade my existing Dialup modem to an ADSL modem?
No, ADSL modems are very different technology to any existing dial up modem. If you have an existing ADSL modem it may be able to be used with the service however we recommend that only Global Internet provided/approved modems be used on the service.
What do I do if my modem is faulty?
Faulty modems, which were purchased from Global Internet, are required to be returned to Global Internet. Global Internet will then test and replace any faulty modems; up to a year from the date they were purchased. If the modem is over one year old, you need to return it to the manufacture for warranty purposes.
What ADSL type does Global Internet use?
All plans are now PPPoE.
I have a Wireless Router. Can I use my Global Internet ADSL Connection from any location?
Generally speaking, the wireless coverage is large enough to cover most residential premises, but will vary from user to user. The wireless link to your Global Internet ADSL connection is limited by range, which in turn is determined by a number of factors. These include the number of walls the signal must pass through, the building material of these walls, and the presence of other wireless signals in the area. Once you are out of the range of your wireless access point, you will lose connectivity to your Global Internet ADSL link. You are limited to the range of your wireless access point.
Who will install the modem?
Customers can self-install the modem. You just need to follow a simple step-by step procedure supplied with the ADSL modem.
Does Global Internet supply installation assistance?
Yes, Global Internet can provide over the phone support for 30 minutes free of charge for all new connection. Onsite set up assistance is available at K100 in Port Moresby. Configuring email client, and line problems support is available Mon - Fri from 8am to 5pm by calling +675 321 4322 (Port Moresby) or +675 472 4311 (Lae).
Does Global Internet provide onsite installation?
Onsite set up assistance is available at K100 in Port Moresby.
Once my ADSL service is installed, will I be automatically connected to the Internet?
Yes, as long as your ADSL equipment is plugged in and turned on and your PC has been configured for the ADSL service. Dial up and timed call charges do not apply to an ADSL service.
