Compare iiNet naked DSL plans

Alex Kidman 1 August 2017

iiNet offers a variety of naked DSL plans suited to those who don't need a landline phone service.

Why choose naked DSL?

Naked DSL services use the standard copper also used for ADSL/ADSL2+ services, but with only the frequencies needed for broadband and none of the frequencies used for standard landline telephony in place. What that means, in essence, is that a line that is active for only naked DSL has no dial tone, but that also means you're not paying for a bundled landline service that you may have little need for.

It doesn't mean you don't have to pay for line rental, though. You're still using the same essential infrastructure as a regular ADSL/ADSL2+ customer, just in a different way. As such, it's worth comparing the total cost of any naked DSL plan, as you may find a bundled ADSL2+ plan offers better financial value. After all, if you don't need the phone line, nobody's saying you have to plug in an actual phone handset.

It's also worth considering contract length. By definition, any naked DSL plan is one that's due to be supplanted by the incoming NBN rollout. Once the NBN comes to town, the standard infrastructure that services DSL services will be gradually shuttered, making a switch to an NBN plan an inevitability if you want to continue getting high-speed broadband services.

Why choose iiNet?

iiNet started life as a Perth-based ISP before growing to become one of Australia's largest ISPs. It's now part of the TPG group and is the "premium" tier ISP in the group, offering a higher level of services and inclusions.
