Media release and 3FL to merge

16 May 2012 - iiNet and Internode have announced that a single, comprehensive games portal will be launched to offer gaming enthusiasts the ultimate experience by combining the best features of existing entities, and 3FL.

The new portal, which will retain the name, will incorporate all the games servers, files, staff and community of 3FL while providing a Voltron-like entity of immense power that will deliver a huge range of new unmetered content in both directions.

3FL’s extensive range of games servers and Freezone content, including Day[9]Daily casts are now quota-free for Internode customers, while iiNet customers can now enjoy quota-free access to’s enormous range of files, patches, demos, game servers and regular editorial content.

Stephen Harley, iiNet’s Chief Product Officer, said the merge demonstrates the great benefits that come with increased scale.

“By combining iiNet and Internode resources and staff, we can offer the latest news, reviews and interviews plus more than eight terabytes of files, trailers, mods and patches and a 10,000 player capacity,” Mr Harley said.

"The best bit is that all servers, files and content will remain in place so it'll be an easy transition for our customers."

Internode’s Content Manager, Heidi Angove, said with the combined forces of iiNet and Internode, we will change the Australian gaming landscape for the better.

“Premium titles, a plethora of servers with a choice of rulesets, fast gameplay and excellent editorial. Together we're committed to be the best possible ISP for gamers in Australia,” Ms Angove said.

The merge is expected to be complete by July 2012 - in time for’s tenth anniversary.
