Internode Unveils Commercial Pricing For NBN

  • Cheapest bundles $59.95
  • 1TB with 100/40Mbps $189.95
  • Will come into play later in 2011

ISP Internode has reveals its intended commercial pricing for Internet access and phone services delivered via the National Broadband Network (NBN) from later this year.

Internode is offering all its NBN-delivered services as “bundled” plans that include telephone and Internet access services.

Internode’s initial residential NBN plan pricing will start at $59.95 a month, with a port speed of 12 megabits per second (Mb/s) downstream and 1 Mb/s upstream and a 30 gigabyte (GB) data quota. A 100/40 Mb/s service with a 1000 GB data quota will cost $189.95. All Internode’s NBN plans include $10 worth of monthly call credits for the bundled NodePhone Voice over IP (VoIP) telephony service.

It will also become possible to obtain the bundled phone service as a conventional analogue fixed line voice service instead of using VoIP, once NBNCo releases this capability later in 2011.

Internode’s NBN pricing aligns its entry-level NBN service with its 30GB data quota Easy Naked ADSL2+ voice and data bundle, which costs from $59.95 a month. The following table summarises proposed prices for Internode’s residential NBN services.

As with Internode’s current ADSL2+ broadband plans, customers can obtain additional capabilities for their broadband service, such as fixed IP addresses or priority Business customer support, by purchasing either a Power Pack for an extra $10 a month or a Business Pack for $30 a month.

Due to the high-speed upstream performance of NBN services, all plans, including the Power and Business option packs, now count the sum of both downloads and uploads in the monthly data quota. Once plans exceed their quota, speed shaping is applied to all data traffic.

NBN service customers (including those with NBN Business Packs) can buy additional Data Blocks online, on demand, removing any risk of unexpected excess traffic fees.
