Internode regularly revises its market offerings.
Internode has released a set of changes to our broadband ADSL plans that are effective from 10th August 2010.
This post provides a short summary of what changed (and what didn’t change) in this particular plan revision.
If you’re not already familiar with Internode plan naming schemes, please start by reading this blog post.
For existing customers
Please note that existing customers that take no action will remain on the plans they are on now, unless they elect to use our online plan changer to select a new plan. If a new plan is selected, it will become effective at the start of your next billing cycle, as usual.
Changing plans does not restart your contract term (if any), and it has no additional plan change costs beyond normal billing adjustments to reflect the new monthly charges for your newly chosen plan.
For plans that have reduced in price while retaining the same plan name (e.g. Extreme-100 & -240, NakedExtreme-100 & -240, Standard-50, and Fast-25), customers on the plans concerned will see the new, reduced pricing flow through to their bills automatically. In applicable cases, these new charges will apply from either your next bill or from the following bill (depending on the anniversary date of your service(s) concerned).
Further information for existing customers is available on the Internode web site.
Our new plan tables are applicable for all new signups, and for existing customers who decide to change to a new plan.
This is the summary of what has changed in this round of plan revisions:
New Agile port based Extreme ADSL2+ and NakedExtreme ADSL2+ plan table
In the process we have also substantially boosted value at the highest download level of these plan tables (240GB per month)
New Optus port based NakedUltra plan table
This new table has been simplified and improved in value generally, compared to the previous NakedUltra table.
Each quota level offered on this table is at the same price as the equivalent NakedExtreme plan.
New Optus port based UltraBundle (ADSL2+ and voice) plans
This new table has been simplified and improved in value generally, compared to the (now superseded) UltraLine plans.
UltraBundle combines ADSL2+ and a dial-tone voice service into one integrated plan. These plans are only available in bundled form.
Each quota level offered on this table is priced the same as the total cost of the equivalent Extreme plan when bundled with NodeLine.
New STANDARD 1500/256 and FAST ADSL2+ plan tables using Telstra Wholesale ports
Compared to previous STANDARD and FAST plans, some plan price points have been revised downward, some are unchanged, and some have been revised upward.
Other Internode ADSL plans that offer better value should be selected in preference to STANDARD or FAST plans, where available. ADSL plan availability can be determined using the Internode Online Coverage Checker.
These price tables fairly reflect our current underlying wholesale access pricing for these ports. As always, should our underlying wholesale access pricing change, the retail pricing of these plan tables will be revised accordingly.
Internode Easy Broadband coverage revised
Pricing, quota and features remain unchanged for this plan.
However, for new signups, this plan is currently available only where an Internode/Agile ADSL2+ port is available.
No new Internode Easy Broadband services are being offered using Telstra Wholesale ports at this time.
