Optus announced today that it will make available its new residential DSL product -- OptusNet DSL -- on Monday, two weeks ahead of schedule.

The launch follows three months of what the telecommunications company said was successful trialling, including three weeks of public trials that attracted over 1000 respondents eager to test the new service.

Optus claimed the testing, undertaken by trialists from NSW, ACT, Queensland, Victoria, South Australia and Western Australia, demonstrated the technology was robust, that its back end system and processes are working well and that the self-installation feature was user-friendly.

The trials tested complex aspects of the user support environment, including the user interface, customer support, accessibility of online account management and data usage tools, the installation process and the DSL technology.

OptusNet DSL is officially on sale from Monday and is available in metropolitan and many regional areas of all states and territories bar the Northern Territory.
