For customers who cannot access Internode’s flagship high-performance Extreme and NakedExtreme ADSL2+ services, the new ADSL Fast plan range (which supersedes previous ADSL Plus and ADSL TwoPlus product ranges) offers the fastest available Internode ADSL service over a wider coverage area. The new ADSL Fast plans continue to offer compelling benefits such as no excess charges if a monthly data quota is exceeded and unmetered uploads.
A significant initiative is the introduction of $10 bundling discounts for customers that request a NodeLine telephone service from Internode with either the new ADSL Fast or selected new ADSL Standard broadband plans. NodeLine is Internode’s standard 'dial tone' telephone service which is available anywhere in the country.
As part of its plan consolidation, Internode has revised its ADSL Standard plans by lowering prices and increasing data quotas on selected plans. The new ADSL Standard plans supersede the previous 256/64, 512/128 and 1500/256 plans, and now offer 1500/256 speed as the new 'baseline' speed for all new customers.
Internode’s new entry point is the HOME-Standard-5 plan, a 1.5 megabit-per-second (Mbps) service with a five-gigabyte download quota which costs $49.95 on its own, or only $39.95 when bundled with NodeLine.
Other key points from today’s plan table overhaul include:
Internode product manager Jim Kellett said the launch of ADSL Fast reflected the rapid maturing of the broadband marketplace. "We are giving people what they want, the fastest available ADSL service to their premises at their chosen price point," he said.
"These revisions give our customers greater choice without the complexity that previously existed. The introduction of bundles for broadband and telephony services reflects Internode stepping up to meet a broader range of our customers' needs. It rewards their loyalty to Internode, which we value highly."
"We recognise that customers always look to us to provide competitively-priced broadband plans, along with the excellent customer service that has won Internode a number of awards recently. People want great value for money, which is what we continue to give them."
