iiNet packs freedom and flexibility into its plans

Anytime quota and data packs now available

15 March 2012 - iiNet, Australia's second largest DSL broadband provider, has announced it will switch to 'anytime quota' on selected plans today, giving customers the flexibility to travel the Internet without the worry of managing their peak and off-peak quotas.

iiNet, Westnet and Netspace customers using on-net ADSL2+ or Naked DSL connections can now use their quota at any time of the day. Previously, internet usage was divided into peak and off-peak quotas - these have now been combined.

The launch of anytime quota follows iiNet’s recent introduction of data packs - blocks of data which are available for customers to purchase so they can avoid hitting their usage limit, when they are having ‘a big month’. Initial sales of the data packs indicate that these are being well received.

 Data packs are available for eligible iiNet, Westnet and Netspace customers and range from $10 for 5GB up to $80 for 100GB.

iiNet's CEO, Michael Malone, said the introduction of anytime quota and data packs will give customers flexibility and more options when using the Internet. 

"The advantages of our increased scale and investment in our network are clearly and directly benefiting our customers," Mr Malone said.

”I’m really pleased to launch these significant changes to our plans. Both of these options have been introduced in response to feedback from our customers. It is very satisfying that we are now in a position to release them to the market.”
