Compare Internode ADSL plans

Matt Sayer 1 May 2017 NEWS

Recently acquired by iiNet, Internode has built a formidable reputation in the ADSL market.


What you need to know about Internode's ADSL plans

As the first ISP in Australia to offer ADSL2+ broadband, Internode knows its stuff when it comes to getting Aussies online. With the support of its parent company iiNet, Internode's ADSL network covers over 450 exchanges Australia-wide, supplying hundreds of thousands of users with a variety of Internet services.

In addition to standalone ADSL plans, Internode offers phone and Internet bundles with a range of local and international call packs. For those looking for more entertainment, Internode's Fetch bundles provide access to thousands of movies and countless hours of TV.

Most of its ADSL plans are available on both 24-month and month-to-month contracts. The only exceptions are the Easy Bundle 100, which is available only on 24-month contracts; and all bundled NodeLine phone services, which require a minimum contract term of 3 months.

If you do sign up for a 24-month contract, you will have to fork out a cancellation fee if you want to end your service early. On the flip side, all 24-month contracts come with a discounted set-up fee, and an ADSL router bundled for free.

What are the different Internode ADSL plans?

Internode's ADSL plans come in two main flavours: Easy Broadband, and Easy Bundles, with the latter including both home phone and internet services. However, Internode is currently sweetening its Easy Broadband plans by throwing in a free NodeLine phone bundle with each one, effectively turning every Easy Broadband plan into an Easy Bundle for no extra cost. Since the Easy Broadband plans come with higher data caps for the same price as the equivalent Easy Bundle plans, Easy Broadband is the way to go.

Easy Broadband plans come with either 500GB or unlimited data every month. The maximum Internet speed will vary depending on where you live, and the quality of the network hardware installed at your local exchange.

Currently bundled with every Easy Broadband plan, NodeLine is Internode's traditional phone service, delivered over the same copper network as ADSL. It includes pay-as-you-go calls, with an optional unlimited local, national and mobile call pack. There is also an international call pack with free calls to 20 countries. If you add on a Fetch subscription, you'll get a Fetch Mini set-top box plus your choice of one of four Fetch channel packs.

How much do Internode's ADSL plans cost?

To get the best value for money, stick with Internode's Easy Broadband plans. For $59.99 you get 500GB a month, while $79.99 frees you from a data cap completely.

Depending on where you live, Internode may not be able to supply Internet through one of its own exchanges. If this is the case, your only option is one of its Easy Reach plans. Since these use of other telcos' infrastructure, they come at a much steeper price. For $69.99 a month you get 100GB of data, $79.99 a month 200GB, and $99.99 a month 400GB.

If you want to upgrade your phone plan, the unlimited local, national and mobile call pack will set you back $20 extra a month. The international call pack costs an extra $10 a month, as does a Fetch subscription.

Internode's month-to-month contracts come with a $129 set-up charge when you first sign up, and if you need an ADSL router, it will set you back another $89. The 24-month contracts have a discounted set-up fee of $79 and come with a router bundled in at no extra cost. However, you'll have to pay an early termination fee of up to $300 if you decide to cancel your contract before the two years is up.

Regardless of which plan you go with, Internode does not charge any excess download fees. Instead it reduces your speed to 256Kbps if you go over your monthly limit.
