iiNet set to expand DSLAMs to eight new regional communities

2 Nov 2009

Australian broadband provider iiNet has revealed plans to install its own network infrastructure in eight new regional communities, itNews reports. The operator plans to install DSLAMs in four states, with on-net coverage expanded to; Campbelltown, Coffs Harbour and Wollongong in New South Wales; Mooloolaba, Caloundra and Toowoomba in Queensland; Geelong in Victoria; and Bunbury in Western Australia. iiNet claims that the deployment of the new infrastructure will allow it to offer people in those regions faster and cheaper fixed line broadband services, and it is expected that the expansion will be complete by June 2010. The move comes as part of iiNet’s attempts to boost its market share from the 6.4% it currently has, according to TeleGeography’s GlobalComms Database, to around 15%.
