iiNet 4G launch boosts customer choice

9 October 2012 - iiNet today intensifies competition in the high-speed wireless broadband market by launching a range of competitively priced 4G services and two innovative 4G devices.

iiNet, Westnet and Netspace customers can choose from a range of plans starting with Australia’s most affordable standalone 4G broadband service for just $29.95 per month with a five-gigabyte (GB) data quota to $79.95 with a 20GB data quota. Plans are available on a 24-month contract or month to month.

iiNet has also launched two 4G devices, the iiNet MobiiHotspot 4G mobile wi-fi router, which can wirelessly share a 4G connection with as many as 10 devices, and the MobiiBroadband 4G, a portable USB modem for the 4G service.

iiNet’s Chief Product Officer, Steve Harley, said today’s launch increased choice for customers who wanted the fastest wireless broadband services. “Both devices are great for travelling professionals and families, allowing them to take their wireless network on the road,” Mr Harley said.

The iiNet MobiiHotspot costs $49 on a 24-month contract or $229 to purchase outright, while the MobiiBroadband 4G can be bought outright for $189 or included at no extra cost on a 24-month iiNet 4G contract.
