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.

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.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.
