FourFourSeconds ago, one of the most interesting things about the launch of a new ISP by OneNet was that it came with an extensible extender.
Now, it looks like it’s the same thing.
In fact, OneMentor is adding an extendable extension that you can plug into a main fibre optic cable, as shown in the below video:Now, this extension can be attached to your existing fibre optic cables, but the new OneNet Extender will be an extenders own design, which means that you’ll have to buy the cable, but it’s also compatible with a number of other existing cable products.
OneMentors chief executive, David O’Neill, told the FT that the extenders extenders will be available in October, and that the company hopes to make them available across the UK within the next few months.
“This is one of those things that has been really, really well received,” O’Neil said.
“It is a very small, compact device that’s going to be incredibly useful for anyone who has fibre optic connectivity.”
The extenders are really easy to install, there’s really no complicated assembly process.
They come in a handy cardboard box that’s very easy to open, and it’s very light.
As for the future, O’Neills view on when the extends will arrive, he said that they are not yet certain. “
These are all very important technologies to the future of the internet, they are the backbone of the future,” O”Neill said.
It’s not a long time yet but it will be around six months before we are able to provide the first commercial units, and then we will then be able to take it to the customer.””
We are making very fast progress with the testing, we’ve just got to get through the testing process,” he said.
“It’s not a long time yet but it will be around six months before we are able to provide the first commercial units, and then we will then be able to take it to the customer.”
OneNet has announced that it plans to sell its extenders to companies and consumers via a third-party reseller.
OneNet is also planning to release a small, affordable USB extender for consumers, but there is no indication at this stage whether or not it will ship with the new extenders.
O’Connor also revealed that the new extension won’t work with any existing cable, and will be compatible with the cable that will be used for your home.
“There’s no reason to be concerned,” ONeill said of the new cable.
“There are not that many other things on the market that are designed specifically for people that want to be able do this, so we will be able offer it to customers.”
OneMents extenders, and its competitors are the first companies to offer the ability to connect to a fibre optic network.
It also appears that the Extender Extenders are a significant step forward for the wireless internet industry.
