Internode to invest AUD9 million to expand ADSL2+ coverage

16 Oct 2007

Australian ISP Internode has announced it will restart its network roll out. The company currently has a presence in more than 90 exchanges, and has recently begun installation at a further 18 in the Australian Capital Territory (ACT), New South Wales (NSW), Queensland, South Australia and Victoria. A further 46 exchanges in NSW, Victoria and Queensland have been earmarked for subsequent installation.

Although Internode stopped its rollout earlier this year, managing director Simon Hackett said ‘We have decided to continue building our broadband infrastructure to get on with being a strong competitor and trusting that the regulatory regime that has made this sort of vigorous competition possible will continue to be supported and strengthened by the Federal Government into the future.’ The company recently announced the 10,000th customer for its NodePhone VoIP service.
