Internode goes Naked in Tasmania

12 Aug 2009

Australian broadband provider Internode will launch its NakedExtreme services in Tasmania tomorrow, on the back of its recently announced deal with Basslink to use the latter’s fibre-optic link to the mainland, iTWire reports. The telco expects to expand the reach of its services across the island swiftly within the next six months, with Jim Kellett, Internode’s product manager, stating: ‘We are installing our own equipment in an extra ten telephone exchanges. That expansion will make Internode’s NakedExtreme and Extreme ADSL2+ services available to more than 90,000 Tasmanian premises, including over 12,000 businesses.’ Internode says the service is able to provide a higher quality broadband connection as it uses its own DSLAM equipment; the telco claims its NakedExtreme service is obtainable up to 7.5km from the exchange, compared to 4.1km for standard ADSL services.
