news Unlimited data broadband plans are the new black, it seems. Just a day after Westnet announced its range of unlimited data deals, so too does iiNet, with spookily similar pricing and nomenclature, to boot.
Like Westnet, iiNet is offering a range of ASDL2+, NBN and ‘Naked’ plans, all with no limits to your monthly download requirements, however excessive. Both firms stress that their limitless plans are not “shaped”, while limited plans will drop to 256kbps once you reach your limit.
Moving onto the details of iiNet’s new limited deals, if your address is eligible for On-Net ADSL2+, then you have a choice of two “liimitless” data ADSL2+ plans.
The first comes with pay-as-you-go calls for $79.99 a month and the second at $89.99 per month, which adds included local and standard national calls and standard Australian mobile calls.
Should you own one of the quarter of Australian premises now able to order an NBN service, the options start with the Basic plan, costing $69.99 a month with limitless data at a basic speed of up to 12Mbps download and up to 1Mbps upload.
For those needing more adequate speeds, iiNet is offering two Boost plans starting at $79.99 per month (for local and standard national calls), with up to 25Mbps download and up to 5Mbps upload. Another $10 brings included standard Australian mobile calls.
At the top end are the “Max” plans, offering speeds of up to 100Mbps download and up to 40Mbps upload. The pay-as-you-go calls option comes in at $99.99, while an extra $10 brings you included local and standard national calls, and $20 more throws in included standard Australian mobile calls.
As with Westnet, the iiNet NBN plans’ quoted speeds are maximum connection speeds as provided by NBN. Actual throughput speeds may be slower and could vary due to many factors, says iiNet
Should you want to do away with the phone line rental, you could also opt for an unlimited Naked plan from just $69.99 per month with pay as you go for calls. Again $10 extra a month brings included local and standard national calls and standard Australian mobile calls.
