Internode has increased the upload speeds for Tasmanian National Broadband Network (NBN) customers by up to five times what was originally offered, the telco has announced today.
The telco has moved to align its offerings with the national plans outlined in the NBN Co business case released last month. Internode's top plan of 100Mbps downlink has had its uplink speed boosted from 8Mbps to 40Mbps. The company has also introduced a basic 12Mbps downlink and 1Mbps uplink plan.

Internode product manager Jim Kellett said that the additional upload speeds incur no additional costs to customers.
"A key benefit of these faster upload speeds is that they better support new and emerging applications, such as high-definition IP video-conferencing," he said in a statement. "Faster upload speeds also improve the performance of telecommuting via internet virtual private networks, and support emerging business demands for cloud computing and networked data storage."
The plans will go into effect on 8 January.
