- Home and SOHO ADSL plans.
- Business ADSL plans (note: important caveat for Business ADSL customers, see below).
- Agile Regional Fixed-Wireless plans.
If your service type does not explicitly appear in the list above, unmetered content will count toward your monthly usage/quota.
Services and plans that are not eligible for unmetered data
The following services are not eligible for any unmetered data inclusions. All unmetered content consumed on the following plans will be counted toward your monthly broadband data quota:
- Easy Naked plans available from 10 December 2015 (e.g. Easy Naked 1000 Special).
- NBN Fibre and NBN Fixed-Wireless plans available from 16 December 2015.
- NodeMobile Voice and NodeMobile Data
- Any other products or services that are not explicitly mentioned as eligible in the list above.
Limitations and Considerations
- If a plan or product is not eligible for unmetered data (e.g. new Easy Naked and NBN plans released in December 2015), the content is still available, however all usage will be metered and count toward your metered usage.
- Unmetering won't work if you use a web 'proxy' or VPN. If you access unmetered sites using a web proxy or VPN, all resulting usage will be metered.
- Netflix Australia content is not unmetered for any NBN Fixed-Wireless services. For other services, only Netflix video streaming is unmetered. Browsing the Netflix website or content is metered and will count toward your quota.
- Unmetering only applies to downloads. All uploads (including transmission acknowledgements and other overheads) are counted against your quota.
- Unmetered data will initially appear in your measured quota, and will then be 'wound back' afterwards. This adjustment normally occurs within a few hours.
- Internode is not responsible for metering of downloads that may occur if you inadvertently link to a site that is external to the unmetered site list. It is your responsibility to ensure that your downloads are sourced from an unmetered site.
- Unmetered data is a value-added feature of selected Internode Broadband services. Internode reserves the option to vary the benefits offered by this feature at any time in the future.
- Under some circumstances (and as minimally as we can possibly manage), we may need to constrain access to some unmetered sites via rate shaping, during periods of high demand. Customers requiring faster access to such sites are advised to consider downloading the required data from an alternative (metered) site if faster access is required.
- The list of unmetered sites is subject to change over time. It is important, before undertaking any large quantity of data downloading from these sites, that you reconfirm that your intended source site is in the current list of unmetered sites.
- Business Pack and Business ADSL Customers Only: Business ADSL access to unmetered sites is only available when accessing the sites using the static IP addresses that Internode assigns directly your Business ADSL service (either 1 or 5 IP address, depending on the option that you have ordered). The unmetered sites feature does not work if you access these sites using any additional static IP address ranges routed to your location using a GRE/IP tunnel or framed route. Access from such 'additional' IP address ranges does not benefit from unmetering, and access to the above-mentioned sites will be metered under this specific circumstance.
