Internode accelerates ADSL2+ rollout

30 May 2006

Australian ISP Internode says it has ‘dramatically accelerated’ its rollout of ADSL2+ broadband services and announced plans to install Digital Subscriber Line Access Multiplexers (DSLAMs) in a further 50 exchanges of incumbent Telstra, taking its total planned to 113. The additional DSLAMs will be installed in 14 exchanges in Melbourne, twelve in Sydney, five in Canberra and seven in Brisbane, as well as in New South Wales, the Australian Capital Territory, Queensland District and South Australia.

Adelaide-based Internode launched residential DSL services in February 2002 and now markets its household offerings under the Home and SOHO banners. It offers bitstream broadband access at speeds of up to 1.5Mbps and was among the first Australian providers to launch ADSL2+ in March 2005; its Extreme ADSL2+ Broadband service offers downloads of up to 24Mbps.
