iiNet Cable Plans
iiNet Cable broadband is a great-value alternative to the NBN and is exclusive to Geelong, Ballarat, and Mildura. Make the switch today!
What is Cable?
Cable gives you broadband speeds delivered over the Hybrid Fibre-Coaxial (HFC) network in Geelong, Mildura & Ballarat (VIC). Fibre optic cable connects to the nodes, and from there coaxial cables connect to a coaxial wall socket in your premises.
How long does it take to get connected to Cable?
Timeframes can change depending on various factors. We will contact you to confirm your appointment within 5 working days of completing a site evaluation (if required).
Connections may occur sooner if Cable has previously been connected at your address and no installer is required.
What happens when Cable is installed?
If a Cable installer is required to visit your premises to install any required equipment or complete your Cable connection, we'll be in touch to book a suitable appointment with you. In such scenarios, you or someone over the age of 18 must be in attendance for the appointment.
*Typical evening speeds indicate typical speeds between 7pm and 11pm and speeds may vary due to various factors explained below.
Factors that may affect your Cable connection speed
|Quality and capability of hardware
This can include modems, WiFi routers and Ethernet or phone cables.
|WiFi signal interference
You can learn how to improve your home or office’s WiFi signal here.
For example, when speeds slow during peak traffic in the evenings.
|Number of connected devices
When too many devices share the same bandwidth, data flow is limited.
|Which content is being accessed
There may be insufficient server capacity or other issues affecting a specific website or online game.
For example, the quality of coaxial cabling & network infrastructure to your premises.
* Actual throughput speeds may be slower and could vary due to various factors as described above.
All iiNet services are bound by our Customer Relationship Agreement. This section offers a quick summary of the terms and guarantees that come with your service. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us on 13 19 17.
Connecting to Cable
Please do not disconnect your existing services until your Cable service is working.
Existing ancillary services and devices that rely on your copper-line telecommunications service will no longer work unless you move them to Cable (such as medical alarms, back-to-base alarms, personal response systems, fax machines and EFTPOS). Please check with your device/service manufacturer or provider to see if the device is Cable compatible.
- We are responsible for your service up to the Network Boundary Point which is the first coaxial wall socket in your premises.
- Customer equipment (such as new or existing cabling and telecommunications outlets) beyond the Network Boundary Point may not work when you connect to Cable. You may require a registered cabler to connect these to your Cable service. You will be responsible for the arrangement and costs of any such cabling work.
- The activation of your selected services does not necessarily cancel any existing phone or broadband services. It is your responsibility to contact your existing service providers to ensure that unwanted services are cancelled, otherwise you may continue to be billed for them.
- Cable Phone is a phone service that is offered with your Cable plan. To use it, you will require a standard phone handset (approved for use in Australia) and VoIP-compatible modem supplied by iiNet. Our Cable Phone services will not work on a third party modem.
- Calls to 000 emergency services may not be possible in the event of a power outage.
- We do not offer priority assistance, nor support for medi-alert services and monitored alarm systems. Priority assistance is offered by Telstra for people who may be reliant on a telephone service because of a serious medical condition. If you have a medi-alert or priority assistance service or believe that you are eligible, please consider this before proceeding with your order.
- Calls to 19/1900 numbers are not available.
- Calls to certain 'high-risk' international destinations are not available by default.
- This service is provided on the basis that you waive your Customer Service Guarantee (CSG) in relation to the Cable Phone. You do not have to agree to the waiver, but if you do not agree, we have the right to decline to supply the service.
- For calls on Cable Phone:
- Timed international calls are charged per second.
- Calls to Australian mobile numbers are charged per 30 second block.
- Included calls are subject to our Acceptable Use Policy.
- Cable Phone must be paired with an active iiNet Cable service. If your Cable plan is cancelled, your Cable Phone service will also be cancelled.
- Transferring an existing phone number to Cable Phone will disconnect the existing phone service. After a successful transfer, please contact your existing provider to ensure that your phone service and any add-on services are cancelled.
- With Cable you will be supplied an iiNet modem (which is WiFi and VoIP enabled).
- $10 hardware delivery fee applies for iiNet-supplied hardware.
All about your quota
