Telstra commits to 10 gigabits

Telstra has announced plans to increase network capacity on its intercapital optical fibre network to 10Gigabits per second.

The 14,000-kilometre network consists of major optical fibre routes and links all mainland capital cities except Darwin. It carries all interstate and international products and services offered by Telstra.

Ken Benson, Telstra managing director, wireline & wireless, said the move was prompted by the continued growth in both Internet and business data traffic, which has been growing at more than 100 per cent per annum over the last two years.

"The speed and capacity offered by moving to 10Gbps is an important component of Telstra's plans to provide residential and business customers alike with high quality broadband services. We will progressively boost capacity by tens of Gbps initially and then hundreds and thousands of Gbps as demand increases."

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.
