Compare iiNet ADSL plans

iiNet's copper network is still alive and kicking. Compare its ADSL plans below.


What you need to know about iiNet's ADSL plans

Rolled out back in the mid-2000s, iiNet's broadband infrastructure rivals many of its bigger competitors, with coverage across all major cities throughout Australia. Though the arrival of the NBN will eventually render copper networks obsolete, that day remains quite a few years away and in the meantime, iiNet offers plenty of ADSL plans for customers still using the older technology.

iiNet's ADSL plans range from simple no-frills Internet connections to complete telecommunications packages bundling Internet, home phone and entertainment services into a single contract. iiNet handles phone services through its own network infrastructure, while entertainment comes by way of Fetch. iiNet customers get unmetered access to the latest movies and TV shows if they sign up for Fetch through their chosen plan.

For customers who want the flexibility of a no-lock-in contract, iiNet offers all its ADSL plans on both 24-month and month-to-month terms. With the latter, you can end your contract at any time without incurring any early cancellation fees. The catch is that month-to-month contracts come with an upfront activation fee of $79.95 and do not include the free modem that 24-month contracts do.

What are the different iiNet ADSL plans?

Simplicity is the name of iiNet's ADSL game, with just four core plans to choose from. If you're not planning on using your home phone particularly often, the 250GB, 500GB and unlimited data plans include pay-as-you calls as standard. Otherwise, the unlimited data plan also offers an option for free local and national calls to landlines and mobiles.

For customers living outside the iiNetwork, iiNet supports Off-net ADSL plans that make use of existing network infrastructure. Since iiNet has to pay rental on this infrastructure, Off-net plans are more expensive than those that use the iiNetwork and are limited to just 100GB, 200GB and 250GB + 250GB (peak + off-peak) data caps. Phone-call packs can be added to any of these plans for an additional monthly fee.

All iiNet's ADSL plans are available on 24-month and month-to-month contracts with the option to add a Fetch subscription to each.

How much do iiNet's ADSL plans cost?

iiNet lays claim to one of the best customer service operations in Australia, but friendly staff don't come free and its ADSL pricing reflects that. iiNetwork plans start at $59.99 a month for 250GB of data and pay-as-you-go calls, with no upfront cost if you sign up for a 24-month contract. At the other end, unlimited data and free local, national and mobile calls will set you back $89.99 a month.

Off-net plans start at a steeper $69.99 a month for 100GB of data and pay-as-you-go calls, while the 250GB + 250GB (peak + off-peak) plan will cost you $89.99 a month. If you want unlimited local, national and mobile calls, that'll be another $20 a month.

All plans can be augmented with a Fetch subscription starting at $10 a month on 24-month contracts and $11 a month on month-to-month contracts. Opting for a month-to-month contract on any of iiNet's plans will also incur a $79.95 activation fee and $89 upfront cost for modem rental.
