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.”

The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.
