1 March 2012: iiNet, Australia’s second largest DSL Internet provider, has announced it will launch its NBN satellite service later this month, with a plan that offers faster speeds and better value at $49.95 per month.
With speeds up to six times faster than existing satellite plans, and with a hefty 20GB of data, the plan will be available to all eligible iiNet and Westnet customers in NBN satellite coverage areas.
iiNet’s CEO, Michael Malone, said the introduction of the satellite service emphasises the company’s position as Australia’s leading NBN provider.
“We’ve been active supporters of the NBN from day one and the introduction of these new satellite services means that those Australians living and working in regional or remote areas can now enjoy the benefits that come with faster and more reliable Internet access from an award winning service provider,” Mr Malone said.
“For us as a business, we’re particularly pleased that we can now offer our customers much improved services, in geographic areas we couldn’t previously reach.”
“We currently service more than 9000 satellite customers through our Westnet service, and our expertise is invaluable in ensuring that the customer experience via the NBN will be better than ever.”
