Internode believes it will gain better DSL coverage as part of iiNet

Now that its merger with iiNet is complete, Australian competitive broadband provider Internode is looking to serve more customers with its DSL services.

As a subsidiary of iiNet, Internode complements its own DSLAM-equipped telephone exchanges with 242 from its new owner, more than doubling the amount exchanges out of which it can deliver its most popular service packages--Internode Easy Broadband and Easy Naked--from 208 to 450.

While not specifying when each provider will ultimately connect their respective customers to their DSLAMs, Simon Hackett, Internode managing director, said that "the integration process is a priority for both iiNet and Internode."

"Blending our DSLAM coverage benefits customers of both Internode and iiNet," he said. "We're working hard to integrate both DSLAM networks so that we can get Internode customers connected via iiNet DSLAMs and vice versa."
