Telstra to upgrade ADSL

10 Mar 2005

Incumbent telco Telstra Corp has said it will spend AUD210 million over the next two years on the upgrade of its ADSL network. The company plans to deploy the broadband-on-copper wire technology ADSL2+ which will enable it to offer speeds up to 20 times faster than its current ADSL services. According to Andrew Johnson, the data and online managing director, 200 exchanges covering 500,000 premises will have ADSL2+ capacity by the middle of 2005. The expansion announcement follows a similar one made by rival operator Singtel Optus yesterday.
