QUICK GUIDE: Services - Costs - Extras - Pros & Cons

What services does iPrimus offer?

iPrimus offers broadband plans for those in ADSL areas, both on its own infrastructure at a small discount and via Telstra’s exchanges. On the National Broadband Network (NBN), it offers Fibre NBN services as well as Fixed Wireless plans. It’s also a full service fixed line telephone company, with discounts if you bundle a phone service with your broadband.


How much does iPrimus cost?

iPrimus offers all its ADSL/ADSL2+, NBN and Naked DSL services on either a month to month basis, or on 12 or 12-month contracts. iPrimus broadband offers access to customers on its own ADSL network ("PrimusNet"), as well as to customers in zone 1 and zone 2 regions. The pricing you’ll pay will depend on your location and the exact services iPrimus has in that area.

iPrimus does split its ADSL data allowances into peak and off peak usage, which could pose a problem on the cheaper plans if you download a lot during peak hours.

On the NBN front, iPrimus interestingly doesn't offer plans on the 50Mbps speed tier, instead focusing on 12Mbps, 25Mbps and 100Mbps speed plans with three different data allowance tiers. Pricing for Fibre NBN plans range from $39.90 up to $109.90 for 100Mbps speeds and unlimited data.


What additional services are included?

What voice options are provided?

iPrimus offers phone bundling with select ADSL services as part of the package, as well as the option to bundle phone services with other plans. If you do so, iPrimus applies a $10 discount to your overall monthly plan fee. Many bundled plans include unlimited national Australian calling subject to an acceptable use policy.

What happens if I exceed my monthly download limit?

iPrimus utilises shaping – limiting the speeds to a set level – if you exceed your data quota before the end of the billing month, typically to a 256Kbps connection. One small catch here is that selected plans offer quota on an on/off-peak basis, so you could conceivably end up with a service that is shaped during peak hours but not off-peak, or vice versa.


Pros and cons

Pros

      • Discount for bundling phone. Outside the expressly bundle offerings, if you do switch your phone service to iPrimus, you’ll save $10/month on your broadband bill.
      • Wide variety of plan offerings Not everyone needs (or wants to pay for) an unlimited service; if you’re a very light user iPrimus has some very light plans to offer.
      • Choice of contract term. Most of iPrimus’ broadband plans are offered on a month by month, 12 or 24 month basis.

Cons

        • Some plans have peak/off-peak quotas. If you’re not a night owl and do most of your browsing during the day, you could end up with half the useful quota you’re paying for.
        • Steep exit fees. iPrimus charges a pro-rated exit fee for break of contract.

      Hi Reen,

      Thanks for your question.

      NBN offers 5 speed tiers with download speed starting at 12 Mbps to 100 Mbps. I’ve sent you an email with a link to NBN page where you can get more information about their speed tiers.

      Cheers,
      Anndy
