Internet Service Provider, Internode, has launched a new broadband service that is said to double the existing reach of ASDL2+ services.
The service which is being called Naked Extreme offers ASDL2 internet access to customers as far away from an exchange as 7.5 km – almost double the previous access area.
Internet product manager Jim Kellet said
“In Australia ADSL has been riding on top of analogue voice services for years which severely hampers the distance that ADSL can operate at. This has led to a general belief that at about 4km from an exchange, ADSL will stop working but that’s just not the case at all.”
NakedExtreme will more than treble a telephone exchange’s coverage area from 52 sq km to more than 176 sq km, Internode claimed.
While ADSL speeds will gradually deteriorate the further a customer is from an exchange, Internode claims customers at the edge NakedExtreme’s coverage area can still expect to connect at 512 kbps downstream and 256kbps upstream.
NakedExtreme starts at $59.95 per month.
