Australian Internet service provider Netspace has delayed the launch of ADSL2+ services until February.

Last September the ISP announced plans to sell services nationally based on the ADSL2+ standard, allowing speeds of up to 24Mbps, prior to the end of 2006.

At the time Netspace told ZDNet Australia it would use a combination of wholesale partners and its own hardware to provide the service.

Netspace blamed its failure for missing the December deadline on not taking into account Telstra's introduction of an 8Mbps service (uncapped ADSL1) in November, according to a recent statement from the ISP. It also pointed the finger at delays to a new single user transfer process, which keeps service downtime to a minimum, when switching users from ADSL1 to ADSL2+.

The ISP expects to announce the full details of its ADSL2+ service during January, the statement said. It will also unveil new 8Mb ADSL1 plans this month.
