What you need to know about Internode NBN plans

With over 25 years of experience, Internode has been a key player in the telecommunications market. iiNet certainly recognised it had clout when it acquired Internode in 2011, and added over 240 new exchanges to the Internode ADSL network. In the years since, Internode has set its sights on the NBN, and has expanded its network to provide Aussies with high-speed fibre internet at affordable prices.

Internode's NBN plans come packed with options, from Voice over IP (VoIP) phone services to Fetch streaming TV entertainment packages. All NBN plans are available on month-to-month or 6-month contracts.

What are the different Internode NBN plans?

Fixed-line NBN

Internode provides fixed-line NBN services over fibre to the premises (FTTP), fibre to the node (FTTN), fibre to the building (FTTB) and hybrid-fibre coaxial (HFC) connections. Four plans are available across the Basic (nbn12), Standard (nbn25), Standard Plus (nbn50) or Premium (nbn100) speed tiers. These are as follows:

  • Bronze 100, which includes 100GB of data at Basic NBN speeds for $49.99 a month
  • Silver Unlimited, which includes unlimited data at Standard NBN speeds for $69.99 a month
  • Gold Unlimited, which includes unlimited data at Standard Plus NBN speeds for a month
  • Platinum Unlimited, which includes unlimited data at Premium NBN speeds for $99.99 a month

Since speeds on the NBN are affected by the number of users connected to it at the same time, the maximum speeds promised by the various tiers aren't always realistic. Internode advises the following average speeds during the peak evening hours of 7pm to 11pm:

  • Basic NBN plans: 10.70 Mbps
  • Standard NBN plans: 19.30 Mbps
  • Standard Plus NBN plans: 43.50 Mbps
  • Premium NBN plans: 79.30 Mbps

Internode doesn't charge any set-up fees for its NBN plans, regardless of contract length. If you need a new modem with your plan, however, you'll pay $99.95 on a month-to-month contract or a reduced $59.95 on a 6-month contract. Just bear in mind that you'll need to pay an early termination fee of $40 if you cancel your 6-month contract before it ends.

Internode doesn't charge excess usage fees, so if you happen to go over your monthly data limit on any of its NBN plans, your Internet speed will simply drop to 256kbps for the rest of the current billing cycle.

Fixed wireless NBN

Like many NBN providers, Internode's fixed-wireless plans follow a similar structure to its fixed-line plans, albeit with support for fewer speed tiers due to the limitations of fixed-wireless technology. Basic (nbn12) and Standard (nbn25) are the only speeds available, and contracts all operate on a month-to-month basis.

This leads to six plans in total on offer:

Basic NBN plans

  • Wireless Bronze 100, which includes 100GB of data for $49.99 a month
  • Wireless Bronze 500, which includes 500GB of data for a month
  • Wireless Bronze Unlimited, which includes unlimited data for $69.99 a month

Standard NBN plans

  • Wireless Silver 100, which includes 100GB of data for a month
  • Wireless Silver 500, which includes 500GB of data for a month
  • Wireless Silver Unlimited, which includes unlimited data for $79.99 a month

Internode doesn't charge any set-up fees for its fixed-wireless plans. If you need a new modem, you'll be looking at a once-off cost of $59.95.

On the plus side, Internode doesn't charge excess usage fees if you blow through your monthly data allowance. Instead, your Internet speed will simply be reduced to 256kbps for the rest of the current billing cycle.
