What you need to know about iiNet's NBN plans

Founded in a suburban garage way back in 1993, iiNet has a lot of experience in the Internet game. Even as the online landscape shifted from copper phone lines to coaxial cables to fibre optics, the Australian telco has kept pace with the competition and now serves as one of the leading companies bringing the NBN to Aussie homes.

For customers living within NBN-available areas, iiNet offers a range of plans spanning basic NBN connections to complete telecommunications packages that bundle Internet, home phone, and entertainment services into a single contract. iiNet delivers phone line access through its own copper network, while a partnership with Fetch provides unmetered access to the latest movies and TV shows over the Internet.

To top it off, iiNet offers month-to-month contract options for all its plans, saving you from forking out a hefty cancellation fee if you decide the service isn't right for you. That freedom comes at a price, though, since all month-to-month contracts include a $79.95 activation fee and do not come with a free modem.

What are the different iiNet NBN plans?


iiNet fixed-line NBN plans

iiNet provides fixed-line NBN connections using fibre to the node (FTTN), fibre to the premises (FTTP), fibre to the building (FTTB) and hybrid fibre coaxial (HFC) technologies. It splits these plans into three speed tiers: Basic (Basic/nbn12), Turbo (Standard Plus/nbn50) and Max (Premium/nbn100). Within those tiers, the different call and data inclusions available are as follows:

Basic plans

  • NBN 500 Basic. Includes pay-as-you-go calls and 500GB of data for $59.99 a month.
  • NBN Liimitless Basic. Includes pay-as-you-go calls and unlimited data for $69.99 a month.

Turbo plans

  • NBN Liimitless Turbo LN. Includes unlimited local and standard national calls as well as unlimited data for $79.99 a month.
  • NBN Liimitless Turbo LNM. Includes unlimited local, standard national and mobile calls within Australia as well as unlimited data for a month.

Max plans

  • NBN Liimitless Max. Includes pay-as-you-go calls and unlimited data for $99.99 a month.
  • NBN Liimitless Max LN. Includes unlimited local and standard national calls as well as unlimited data for a month.
  • NBN Liimitless Max LNM. Includes unlimited local, standard national and mobile calls within Australia as well as unlimited data for a month.

Following guidance from the ACCC, iiNet provides the following estimates of typical Internet speeds on its plans during the peak evening hours of 7pm to 11pm:

  • Basic: 10.30Mbps typical evening speed
  • Turbo: 42.60Mbps typical evening speed
  • Max: 77.40Mbps typical evening speed

iiNet fixed wireless NBN plans

For Aussies living outside the range of wired NBN, iiNet provides fixed wireless plans at both Basic and Standard NBN speed tiers. These plans come in four varieties:

  • NBN 500 Basic. Includes pay-as-you-go calls and 500GB of data and a Basic NBN connection for $59.99 a month.
  • NBN Liimitless Basic. Includes pay-as-you-go calls and unlimited data and a Basic NBN connection for $69.99 a month.
  • NBN Liimitless Boost LN. Includes unlimited local and standard national calls along with unlimited data and a Standard NBN connection for $79.99 a month.
  • NBN Liimitless Boost LNM. Includes unlimited local, standard national and mobile calls within Australia along with unlimited data and a Standard NBN connection for $89.99 a month.

iiNet NBN satellite plans

If you're living in an area of the country ineligible for a fixed-line or fixed wireless NBN service, a satellite connection is likely your only option for high-speed Internet. iiNet offers three such plans rated at Basic (nbn12) for speeds between 5Mbps and 12Mbps:

  • NBN Satellite 150. Includes 30GB of peak-time data and 120GB of off-peak data for $39.99 a month.
  • NBN Satellite 200. Includes 45GB of peak-time data and 155GB of off-peak data for $49.99 a month.
  • NBN Satellite 250. Includes 60GB of peak-time data and 190GB of off-peak data for $59.99 a month

Like most satellite providers, iiNet defines peak time as between the hours of 7am and 1am, with off-peak filling the six-hour gap between 1am and 7am.

If the default Basic NBN connection isn't fast enough, you can upgrade any of iiNet's satellite plans to a Standard NBN connection with speeds between 5Mbps and 25Mbps for an extra $5 a month.

Because latency can be an issue on satellite connections, iiNet offers a traditional landline phone service rather than a VoIP service for those wanting to bundle all their communication needs into a single plan. The basic pay-as-you-go phone service will set you back an extra $29.95 a month, while unlimited local, national and mobile calls will add $20 a month on top of that. For unlimited international calls to iiNet's 20 top countries, you'll be looking at an additional $10 a month.

Should you require one, iiNet will sell you a Wi-Fi modem for $89 if you sign up for a month-to-month satellite plan. Sign up for 24 months and iiNet will throw the modem in for free. You won't have to pay a set-up fee on a 24-month contract either, whereas signing up on a month-to-month basis will incur a one-off $99.95 activation fee. On the flipside, cancelling a 24-month contract before the full two-year term is up will mean facing an early termination charge of as much as $300.
