iiNet dares to be different with simple, flexible NBN plans

19 September 2011: iiNet, Australia's second largest DSL Internet service provider, has today announced its National Broadband Network (NBN) plans - a mix of three plans with a range of simple options designed to offer customers flexibility and value for money.

iiNet's NBN plans start from $49.95 per month for minimum speeds of 12Mbps and come with a 'Turbo pack' option to boost speeds up to 100Mbps if desired.

iiNet's innovative range of BoBTM modems will work seamlessly on the NBN, making set-up on the new network quick and easy.

iiNet's CEO, Michael Malone, said he has always been a strong supporter of the National Broadband Network.

"We have long recognised the power of a ubiquitous, open-access network to transform our business. The NBN allows us to deliver what we have always stood for: faster, more reliable broadband for less," Mr Malone said.

"iiNet is particularly excited that the roll-out of NBN is focused on regions traditionally burdened with slower speeds and higher prices. Without the need for a fixed phone line, the customers on our most popular ADSL1 plan can move to NBN speeds and enjoy ten times the quota for the same price they're paying now."

"With standard off-net access charges offered by NBNCo 40 per cent less than currently available in regional areas, we can pass substantial savings on to our customers," Mr Malone concluded.
