New Fibre to the Home plans match NBN
Released this week, Internode's new Fibre to the Home (FTTH) broadband plans increase the value available to customers at greenfield estates and introduce optional "add-on" Power Packs and Business Packs to better meet customer needs, especially for the business market.
As well as offering fibre optic-based services at all National Broadband Network (NBN) sites in Australia, Internode delivers Fibre to the Home services at real estate developments in Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria and SA, through partnerships with wholesale providers OptiComm and OPENetworks.
Starting at $49.95 for a 12/1 Mbps plan with a 30GB data quota, Internode's new FTTH plans apply the same naming conventions, speeds, data quotas and prices that Internode delivers to its NBN-connected customers. The following table outlines Internode's new Fibre broadband plans.
|Monthly Price & Quota||Port Speed *||30 GB||300 GB||600 GB||1 TB|
* These are the nominal Fibre broadband access port speeds and are not necessarily indicative of actual Internet data transfer speeds.
Please note, the total minimum cost for each Fibre to the Home broadband plan comprises the standard setup charge of $99 plus one month of Fibre broadband plan rental.
Internode product manager Jim Kellett said new Fibre to the Home plans simplified choice for customers. "The new plans are 'NBN-equivalent' in terms of speeds, quotas and prices," he said.
"As well as more competitive prices, we've launched the new 12/1 Mbps level speed for Fibre to the Home customers and are delivering faster upload speeds with the standard services. We've also introduced the optional Power Packs and Business Packs so customers can tailor their Fibre service to their particular needs."
"The previous Fibre plans have been 'grandfathered', which means they remain operational for existing customers but are no longer available for purchase. Customers will not be automatically migrated to the new plans, but can select them at www.internode.on.net or by calling Internode on 13 NODE (13 6633)."
Mr. Kellett added that Internode's Fibre services at Point Cook and South Brisbane would remain at higher prices than the new plans because of the "uncompetitive" wholesale pricing offered by Telstra.
