Internode NBN accelerated

Monday, January 8th, 2018 by

We’ve got great news for our NBN™ customers – we’ve replaced our Silver nbn25 plans with Gold nbn50 at no extra cost!

Our brand new Gold plans are available across NBN™ FTTP, FTTB, FTTN, FTTC, & HFC technologies, with our most popular plan offering unlimited NBN™ data for just $79.99 a month on a no lock-in contract (min charge $159.94).

Go Gold today!

Unlocking the potential of the NBN™

Gold plans are a great way to start the New Year as they allow more customers to reach the full potential of their NBN™ connections for the same monthly price. Customers whose connections were unable to achieve the speeds that would make upgrading to a Platinum nbn100 plan worthwhile will be please to know that Gold nbn50 plans can achieve faster speeds than the Silver nbn25 plans allowed.

Customers whose connections are more suited to an nbn25 plan aren’t put at a financial disadvantage, either – our new Gold plans cost exactly the same as our old Silver plans!

How fast is nbn50?

The release of our new plans coincide with new guidelines from the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC). Internode is among the first Internet Service Providers to follow the ACCC’s guidelines on advertising NBN™ with typical evening speeds. Basically, this is a national measurement of download speeds between 7PM & 11PM, local time.

At the time of writing this article, we advertise the following evening speeds for NBN™ FTTP, FTTB, FTTN, HFC & Wireless services:

  • Bronze (nbn12): Typical evening speed 11.1Mbps download
  • Silver (nbn25): Typical evening speed 23Mbps download
  • Gold (nbn50): Typical evening speed 42.8Mbps download
  • Platinum (nbn100): Typical evening speed 65.9Mbps download

Measuring speeds during this busy period provides a realistic guide because performance issues are most likely to occur when the network is at its busiest. There are a number of factors which can affect NBN™ speeds, so be sure to check out our NBN™ Speeds Explained article for more information.
