Alternative Australian broadband provider Internode has revealed that it will move 3,000 of its customers currently utilising Telstra’s broadband infrastructure to its own new DSLAMs at seven exchanges in Hobart and Launceston. According to CRN Australia, Internode has enabled its own ADSL2+ services at the Howrah, Sandy Bay, Lindisfarne, Kingston and New Town exchanges in Hobart, alongside the South Launceston and St John exchanges in Launceston. Additionally, the operator is also understood to be preparing to begin offering ADSL2+ services over its own equipment in two further exchanges – Bellerive and Glenorchy – in the second quarter of 2010. Internode has claimed that the move will see a significant number of the customers see downlink speeds rise from 1.5Mbps to a maximum of up to 20Mbps ‘at no extra cost’. The transition is expected to take place over the course of the next two months.
