National broadband company Internode will boost its network capacity to the US by 40 percent using a redundant route via Asia provided by Australia-Japan Cable (AJC). The new link goes live in January 2007.
Internode already has nearly 3 Gbp/s of dedicated capacity to the US via the Southern Cross Cable fibre-optic link.
Simon Hackett, managing director at Internode said the ISP has signed a five-year agreement for AJC to supply an initial 1.2 Gbps capacity, with a simple upgrade path to 4.8 Gbps capacity – dual STM-16.
The ISP will also launch ADSL1 plans - running at 8 Mbp/s once the new AJC link goes live on 10 January, 2007.
Hackett said: “We’re holding off on releasing our new plans because we don’t want capacity to run dry.”
Internode was also looking at creating break-out capacity into Asia via Japan, said Hackett.
