The following guide covers our frequently asked questions regarding Steam content servers.
Internode currently hosts two servers for Steam content in Australia:
In addition to this, Internode have worked closely with Valve to deliver the vast and incredible content offered on Steam via the Internode Content Delivery Network.
Utilising our CDN allows Internode and our customers exclusive access and the fastest way to download unmetered content directly from Steam.
As is the case with our regular dedicated Steam content servers, we are unable to ensure that content you receive is unmetered, this is entirely dependant on the requested content and if it is available for delivery via the CDN. Failing this, the content may be acquired from an alternative source, counting towards your monthly quota.
We are proud to be the only partner in the world to offer this new Steam content delivery method to our customers.
Content Server Statistics are available on Steam's website, here:
Our filtered server, located in Adelaide, is only available to Internode customers. This exclusive server will ensure great speeds at all times.
Yes. Our public server, located in Sydney, is available to all Internode customers and Australian gamers. This server may not be as fast during peak times.
All Australian hosted Steam content servers are unmetered for Internode customers. The full listing of unmetered IP addresses can be located here.
No. The files located on our Steam content servers are fully managed and controlled by Valve Software.
No. When content is not available from a specified Steam content server, Steam will attempt to obtain the requested files from the best available location automatically. This content will count towards your monthly quota if it is not downloaded from an Internode hosted Steam content server.
There are currently three different community-made applications available which prevent Steam from using overseas or unmetered content servers. These software suggestions are provided as-is, with absolutely no guarantee from Internode. More information regarding these applications can be found below:
Files that are not available from our Steam content servers will not be downloaded when using a filter.
