Internode pumps up Tasmania's data capacity

Speeds expected to reach one gigabit by year’s end

ISP Internode has announced will be boosting its data capacity between Tasmania and mainland Australia through a new deal with Basslink.

The agreement, which will see Internode increase its data capacity across Bass Strait by more than 150 per cent, sees Internode sign on as the first ISP customer of Basslink’s fibre optic cable service.

The three-year contract with Basslink is for an initial data capacity of 622 megabits per second with speeds later in the year expected to reach more than one gigabit.

Internode carrier relations manager John Lindsay said the agreement would see its Tasmanian customers gain access to speeds similar to those available on mainland Australia.

"As well as virtually halving our cost of backhauling data across Bass Strait, the Basslink service will allow us to exploit economies of scale as we grow," he said.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.

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.

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.
