Briefs: Aussie ISP resumes Outback DSL sales

Nov 29, 2005

An Australian Internet service provider is again signing up customers in rural areas despite grumbling over Telstra's wholesale DSL rates.

A report in ZDNet Australia Tuesday said that iiNet, Australia's third-largest ISP, was again taking applications for regional asymmetric DSL.

iiNet had suspended its sign-ups earlier this month in a protest over wholesale rates charged by Telstra.

The short-lived boycott came amid an upsurge in iiNet's Voice over Internet Protocol service, which this fall topped the 10,000 subscriber mark in just over three months.
