Australian Telstra Upgrades One-Fifth of Broadband Customers

WASHINGTON, July 16, 2010 – One-fifth of Telstra customers in a previous broadband desolate area have upgraded their home networks from copper broadband connections.

Telstra had an area that included 1,500 households in its trial fiber-to-the-home project. Around 300 households signed up for fiber networks as a part of the two-month pilot program. Telstra provided the infrastructure for those 1,500 households to install a fiber connection in an area not used to having broadband.

Simon Hackett managing director of Internode, a provider involved with the trial, said “We’ve certainly signed up enough customers to form a valid set of test cases.”
