Unmetered Steam Content
The following guide covers our frequently asked questions regarding the popular service Steam.
Internode has 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 customers exclusive access, and the fastest way to download unmetered content directly from Steam.
We are unable to ensure that all content you receive is unmetered, this is entirely dependent on the requested content and if it is available for delivery via the Internode CDN. Failing this, the content may be acquired from an alternative source, counting towards your monthly quota.
We are proud to offer this new Steam content delivery method to our customers.
Steam Server Statistics are available on Steam's website, here:
- Steam content that is downloaded from Internode hosted Steam servers will not count toward your Broadband usage.
- If Steam switches to downloading from an alternate server outside of Internode (sometimes it will occur automatically), your Steam content downloads will count toward your normal quota.
- Internode cannot guarantee or force the use of Internode dedicated Steam servers.
