Internode is setting the pace for Fibre To The Home (FTTH) broadband competition in Australia. It delivers broadband and telephony services via fibre at nine greenfield housing developments in four mainland states; and is one of just three broadband companies working with NBNCo at a FTTH test centre in Tasmania.
From today, Internode has cut 35 per cent from the price of its 100 megabit per second (Mbps) FTTH plan with a 100-gigabyte (GB) data quota - which drops by $65 to just $119.95. Internode has also introduced three new fibre plans with 200 GB data quotas, costing from $129.95 to $159.95.
Internode has boosted data quotas across its Home and SOHO Fibre plan range, starting with a 10 GB data boost to its entry-level $49.95 plan, which now has a 15 GB monthly data quota. A number of Internode’s new Fibre plans have had both price cuts and data quota increases.
The third major change of Internode’s plan overhaul is increased upstream speeds for data flowing from your home to the Internet.
To fairly account for the network capacity requirements of these increased upstream speeds, Internode now counts both downloaded and uploaded data in monthly quotas on these new FTTH plans.
Internode product manager Jim Kellett said the Fibre to the Home revisions were driven by evolution in the marketplace. "As this technology moves from novelty to normality, market forces are starting to kick in," he said.
"With our partner Opticomm, Internode is learning how our customers use their FTTH services and what services they most want. We are also starting to see increased business utilisation of our Fibre services, so we’ve made important changes to our range of SOHO plans such as introducing static IP addresses and offering quite radical upstream speeds, such as 16 Mbps for our 100 Mbps SOHO plans."
"Fibre is a brave new world for Australia and Internode is delighted to be part of it."
All pre-existing Internode FTTH plans will be "grandfathered", which means that while Internode no longer sells them, existing customers are welcome to stay on their current plans or move to any new FTTH plan.
