ADSL2+, faster, further without phone

Internode pushes ADSL2+ out to 7.5km.

Naked ADSL2+ broadband can cover three kilometres more than Internet access services which require an active fixed telephone line, according to Internode.

The Internet Service Provider (ISP) claims naked ADSL2+ operating on the Unbundled Local Loop (ULL) can service an area 124 square kilometres larger than other fixed line technology because it is not restricted by spectrum sharing.

The Spectrum Sharing Service (SSS) allows voice and data to travel on the same copper wire using high and low frequencies.

Internode managing director Simon Hackett said with its newly launched NakedExtreme service, it can push DSL out a further 3.4km to 7.5km by operating naked ADSL through its own DSLAMs.

“As well as mandating additional line rental costs for the customer, a SSS restricts the distance we can deliver broadband to about 4.1km from the local telephone exchange – any further and our customer connection attempt is rejected with the declaration ‘Transmission Loss Too High’,” Hackett said.

“That message occurs if the line produces a signal attenuation over its length exceeding the allowable limit for a traditional analogue voice service.”

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
