Internode to bring 100Mbps FTTH service to greenfield sites

25 Feb 2009

Australian broadband provider Internode is planning to offer 100Mbps fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) services to residential customers in greenfield suburbs across the country, reports itNews. The service will be offered in partnership with OptiComm, a company that specialises in the design, construction, provision, operation and maintenance of FTTH networks for new housing estates. Initial developments will include the Fernbrooke estate, 32km southwest of Brisbane’s central business district, and Lochiel Park and Northgate in South Australia. Connections will be offered at three speeds – 25Mbps, 50Mbps and 100Mbps – with prices starting at AUD49.95 (USD32.23) per month. Commenting on the development, Internode’s managing director Simon Hackett said, ‘In the real world, the future for residential broadband is clearly fibre to the home. Internode’s ability to deliver a 25Mbps fibre to the home service for less than AUD50 a month and a true 100 Mbps service for less than AUD100 demonstrates that technology is not the barrier to deploying a world-best broadband system in Australia.’
