Internode’s ADSL2+ footprint reaches 550 exchanges

28 Apr 2010

Australian alternative broadband provider Internode has extended its ADSL2+ coverage to more than 550 exchanges, according to the company’s managing director, Simon Hackett. Impress Media reports that the executive also claimed that the telco had rolled out the services in ‘all exchanges where (competitive) ADSL2+ DSLAM providers are present’, while noting that its footprint now covered around 70% of the country’s population. The revelation comes as the operator announced the launch of a new, simplified, broadband tariff known as ‘Easy Broadband’, which it said was designed to offer a jargon-free plan for subscribers looking for value for money. The service costs AUD49.95 (USD46.04) per month if bundled with Internode’s fixed line ‘Nodeline’ service, and those customers in areas where the telco has deployed ADSL2+ Annex M technology can receive upload speeds of up to 2.5Mbps.
