Internode has launched its 'NakedExtreme' naked ADSL service in Tasmania, following its mainland launch in August last year. The new service is expected to fill in metropolitan broadband blackspots that currently affect the island.

Internode’s Extreme broadband services are delivered to customers from telephone exchanges equipped with the ISP's own DSLAM equipment.

The NakedExtreme service extends broadband reach from 4.1km to up to 7.5km, with potential broadband area coverage increasing from 52 to 176 square kilometres. The new service was made possible by the Basslink fibre-optic cable, which is the first fibre link connecting Hobart and Victoria that's not owned by Telstra.

Internode is planning to rapidly expand the availability of its Extreme services over the next six months. “We are installing our own equipment in an extra 10 telephone exchanges,” said product manager Jim Kellett. “That expansion will make Internode's NakedExtreme and Extreme ADSL2+ services available to more than 90,000 Tasmanian premises, including over 12,000 businesses.”

The NakedExtreme service delivers broadband over a phone line with no phone service attached. Phone calls are made via the NodePhone VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) service.

A NakedExtreme service costs just $10 more than the equivalent Extreme ADSL2+ service. NakedExtreme is available in Home, SOHO & Business plans, with prices starting at $49.95 a month (for a 5GB monthly download quota). For more information, visit the Internode Web site.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
