With the establishment of the new PoP, which was launched last week, Internode customers are experiencing better speed and performance with online resources in Asia.
“We have been going through Asia on the way to North America for a long time, but we’ve never stopped there,” said Internode national sales manager Daryl Knight. “We chose to break out in Japan because we wanted to improve the speed and latency of the service we provide to customers.”
“We’ve also improved the peering relationships throughout Asia with this move, because Japan is considered somewhat of a beachhead in the region.”
Corporate customers with business interests in Asia have the option of using Internode’s private IP services to Japan and other areas of the continent, similar to the IP services that Internode currently offers between Australian companies and the U.S.
Residential customers can also reap the benefits of the Japanese junction, which provides them with a better quality performance from VoIP and online gaming with many areas of Asia.
Internode believes the step is really just about improving resources for customers.
“We’re doing it primarily so we provide our customers with better, faster access,” Knight said. “In terms of the business end, it provides businesses that have connectivity needs with Asia with more options, and increasing competition is always a good thing.”
