TPG offers its subscribers a range of internet connection speeds with the Off-net Broadband package. Depending on location and the maximum capacity of the copper cable, speeds can vary between 512Kb/s and 20Mb/s. The Off-Net Broadband package offers a dedicated connection that is outside the bounds of the On-Net DSLAM network. TPG offers its subscribers the following internet packages:
