Internode ADSL2+ servers branching out to Tasmania

Aussie ISP Internode boosts broadband services in Hobart and Launceston

Australian ISP Internode has announced that it has installed ADSL2+ equipment at seven extra telephone exchange locations in Tasmania.

The new equipment has been installed at the Howrah, Sandy Bay, Lindisfarne, Kingston and New Town exchanges in Hobart, and the South Launceston and St John exchanges in Launceston. This extends the company's presence in Tasmania, with the only previous Internode ADSL2+ exchanges located at Davey and Bathurst.

Internode managing director Simon Hackett said the company is making the move because of the benefits it posed for both users and Internode itself.

"Internode's own ADSL2+ equipment gives our customers better performance and it costs us less to provide these services," he said. "The greatest beneficiaries of this complimentary upgrade are our Internode Easy Broadband customers, many of whom will go from 1500 kilobit per second services to ADSL2+ speeds — at no extra cost."

Internode will offer the ADSL2+ services through Telstra Wholesale equipment and it will upgrade a further two Tasmanian exchanges — Bellevrie and Glenorchy — later in the year.

The move follows last week's announcement that Internode was one of three ISPs that will deliver the first National Broadband Network (NBN) fibre-optic services in Tasmania. This will enable over 3000 customers from slower systems to transfer to Internode's high-speed broadband services when the network goes live in July.

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
