news Internet provider iiNet has updated its on-net ADSL2+ plans, giving all options hefty quota increases without additional conditions.
The firm says it refreshed the plans to provide customers with “better value than ever before”, adding that it is in the process of upgrading existing customers to the new quotas.
iiNet’s new ADSL2 on-net plans – which in some cases now offer more than double the old quota – kick off with the lowest-priced unbundled plan that has been boosted from 50GB to 125GB. When bundled with the Home Phone option, the quota goes up to 250GB.
The larger unbundled plan has made a larger leap from 150GB to 500GB. This climbs to a full terabyte (1000GB) if bundled with Home Phone.
iiNet says existing customers will be automatically upgraded to receive more quota without any other changes. The firm describes the deal as “a no-strings-attached quota boost for the same great monthly price”.
Customers will still receive the same plan features as previously, including Call Packs for Home Phone.
Price-wise, the plans start at $39.95 per month for the unbundled 125GB deal, rising to $59.90 and 259GB when the Home Phone box is ticked. The 500GB unbundled deal will set you back $59.90, rising to $79.90 and 1000GB with phone bundled.
Optional call packs include $10 a month for the international call pack, giving calls to landlines in iiNet’s “Top 20” international destinations. For included calls to standard Australian landlines and mobiles, users can tick the $20 Local, National & Mobile Call Pack option.
The news comes as iiNet has also recently updated its National Broadband Network plans. The company recently launched several new National Broadband Network plans, including a plan featuring 1000GB (one terabyte) of download quota and 100Mbps speeds for $99 per month — $10 a month cheaper than its previous terabyte, 100Mbps NBN offering.
The news does not appear to change iiNet’s previous NBN plans, but instead gives customers more options. The company has previously offered several other terabyte NBN plans with 100Mbps speeds, for example, at $109.99 and $119.99 price points, with those plans offering local and “standard” national calls, plus “standard” Australian mobile calls respectively.
The new terabyte option appears to give iiNet customers an option of signing up for a cheaper broadband plan that does not place an emphasis on included telephone calls.
