OzEmail to trial high-speed access via pay-TV satellites

OzEmail will begin a trial of high-speed Internet services next month, to be delivered via pay-TV provider AUSTAR's satellite direct-to-home infrastructure.

The trial will take part in regional Australia -- AUSTAR's pay-TV market, and will according to OzEmail, offer "download speeds significantly faster than currently available via conventional dial-up PSTN connections".

"Together through this trial, we intend to demonstrate the future potential of high quality Internet access," said OzEmail CEO Sean Howard.

"For OzEmail, the satellite trial represents another stage in the development of a more compelling service offering for customers by merging the delivery of pay-TV and Internet access."

OzEmail announced another high-speed Internet service trial last week, a partnership with the TransAct Broadband Communications Network pilot, being conducted in Canberra by Australian Capital Territory Electricity and Water.

Each home participating in the pilot will achieve speeds of up to 50Mbit/s and services include video on demand, video conferencing and telephony.

ACTEW is delivering the service via a true broadband network using fibre optic and copper cabling.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
