Watch TV shows and movies using a high speed broadband connection, and stream content to different devices with Internode broadband.
What services does Internode Broadband offer?
A subsidiary of iinet (which is itself a subsidiary of TPG now), ISP Internode was born in 1991 with the primary aim to provide Internet services to avid gamers and gadget geeks. It’s not dependent on a single upstream or peering provider making it capable of delivering maximum resiliency to its customers, who are located in Australia as well as North America, Asia and Europe.
How much does Internode Broadband cost?
In terms of services, Internode caters for both home and business users. Home users can benefit from its ADSL2+ broadband connections, fibre and wireless broadband connections through the NBN, plus phone and VoIP services. Business and corporate customers can benefit from its high speed Internet access, phone and VoIP solutions, network solutions, and hosting and messaging services.
If you live in an area that the National Broadband Network already covers, you can opt for an NBN fibre connection, and you get multiple plan options from which to choose.
If you live in a region where NBN hasn’t reached yet, you can still get high speed internet connectivity through Internode using an Easy Broadband, Easy Naked, or Easy Reach ADSL2+ connection. With these, you can even get bundled connections with home phone lines.
What additional services are included?
What voice options are provided?
Internode offers phone bundles with its ADSL plans which include a $29.95 monthly line rental fee. Internode then offers NodeLine call packs, with prices starting at $20 a month for all local, national and mobile calls. There's a $10 per month pack for International calls to 20 popular International destinations, and also a $30 monthly pack with both local, national, mobile and international calls included.
What happens if I exceed my monthly download limit?
Internode broadband is one of the more user-friendly ISPs when it comes to excess data consumption – once you've exceeded your monthly allowance, Internode will shape your connection to 256/256Kbps on standard ADSL plans (though it does shape to 128/128 on Naked DSL plans). Internode offers a $10 a month Power Pack add-on in addition to your monthly repayment that will increase the shaping speed depending on your plan. There's also the option to buy extra data packs, with prices starting at $5 for 2GB and ranging all the way up to $80 for an extra 200GB.
Pros and cons
- Pay for bonus data. If you do happen to exceed your monthly download limit, you can buy extra data at reasonable rates.
- Unmetered content. Internode's Freezone means unmetered Xbox downloads and Netflix streams.
- Naked plans for ADSL customers who don't want a landline. Not everyone wants to pay for a landline, so Internode's Naked DSL plans can cater to those customers.
- No unlimited plans. The biggest plan includes 1,000GB, which is a lot of data, though it's not unlimited.
