Internode bundles up best value Easy Reach plan
At $29.95 per month, the new Easy Reach 30 Special broadband plan represents great value when bundled with a NodeLine telephone service, which itself costs $29.95 a month: with its 30 gigabyte (GB) data quota, the new Easy Reach 30 Special plan actually costs $10 less per month than the previously cheapest Easy Reach plan, which costs $39.95 a month when bundled—but offers only a 5GB data quota!
When bundled, the Easy Reach 30 Special plan offers the same value and price as Internode’s popular Easy Broadband XS plan—but is more widely available, mainly from metropolitan-area telephone exchanges. To check if the Easy Reach 30 Special plan is available in your area, just type your telephone number into the Broadband Coverage Checker on the Internode home page at www.internode.on.net.
Internode product manager Jim Kellett said the Easy Reach 30 Special plan was at a popular price point with customers. "This launch extends the availability of our best value ADSL2+ offering," he said.
"This is great news for any customers still on first-generation broadband plans, using 256 kilobyte per second (k) or 512k services. Today’s launch lets them pay the same price, just $29.95 a month for broadband when bundled with an Internode phone service—for which they get six times the quota and a much higher speed.
The other notable feature of the Easy Reach 30 Special is that it offers a $30 per month bundling discount with NodeLine. Without this discount, the service costs $59.95 per month.
Because this plan is not available from every exchange, we are encouraging people to use the coverage checker on the Internode home page to find out if this new plan can be delivered in their area."
As with other Easy Reach plans, the Easy Reach 30 Special data quota counts both uploads and downloads. However, customers can upgrade their service with a Power Pack ($10 extra per month) or Business Pack ($30) to gain access to features such as static IP addresses and download-only quotas.
Internode’s Easy Reach ADSL2+ broadband plans are delivered through Telstra Wholesale ports, with national coverage across Australia.
