iiNet delivers a hat-trick on the NBN
02 April 2012 - iiNet, Australia's largest NBN service provider, will be the first company to offer NBN services across all three access methods - fibre, satellite and wireless.
iiNet has revealed its wireless service will 'go live' next month following a successful trial with NBN in Armidale, NSW. Internode, which is part of the iiNet Group, will make their NBN Wireless service available to customers from today.
The iiNet NBN Wireless Broadband will provide speeds up to 12/1 Mbps with prices starting from $49.95 per month for 20GB peak and 20GB off-peak data.
The addition of a wireless service joins a number of other recent firsts for iiNet including successful certifications for the NBN voice service (UNI V) and NBN Facilities Access, which enables both access to the NBN Co data centres and integration with iiNet's network. iiNet is also ready to commission its Business to Business capabilities with NBN, enabling the full automation of all services and the future ability to offer wholesale services to other companies.
iiNet's CEO, Michael Malone, said the addition of a wireless service reinforces the company's commitment to providing superfast Internet to all Australians, no matter where they live.
"As a foundation partner of NBN Co, we've always focused on getting on with the job and making NBN services available to our new and existing customers," Mr Malone said.
"Offering our customers all three NBN access methods is a significant milestone for iiNet. We pride ourselves on being first to market with new technologies. We were first with Naked DSL and IPTV and now we're first to bring a full NBN service suite to the market."
"We are working closely with NBN Co to ensure this momentum continues. The end result will be a seamless transition for our customers, as they move from their current service to an iiNet NBN service," Mr Malone added.
