Internode has upped the ante in the Internet service provider offerings battle by unveiling a range of new broadband plans.
As part of several changes across the ISP’s Extreme product range, a $29.95 10GB ‘Home-Extreme-10’ plan has been introduced and is available when bundled with a NodeLine phone service. The biggest plan is now the ‘Home-Extreme-240’ which costs $149 a month ($139 when bundled with the NodeLine service) with a 240GB quota.
The NakedExtreme ADSL2+ plans have also been revamped with data quotas increased by 20GB in some cases. A Home-NakedExtreme-240 plan with 240GB per month now costs $159.95.
The ISP has also doubled the shaping speeds for the above-mentioned plans to “128 kbps on Home plans, and a much larger 512 kbps shaping rate on SOHO plans”.
More information can be found on the Internode website.
Last week, Internode switched on seven new Digital Subscribe Line Access Multiplexers (DSLAMs) in Tasmanian suburbs, despite recently committing to a National Broadband Network (NBN) fibre service in the state.
DSLAMs were installed at telephone exchanges in Howrah, Sandy Bay, Lindisfarne, Kingston and New Town in Hobart, and the South Launceston and St John exchanges in Launceston. This brings the ISP's network of DSLAMs in Tasmania to nine in total, though Internode also offers ADSL2+ services through Telstra's own equipment.
A statement released by Internode said that the company plans to install DSLAMs in Bellevrie and Glenorchy in Tasmania by the end of the second quarter of this year.
