ISP iiNet and its subsidiary brands Internode, Westnet and TransACT have revised a range of on-net ADSL2+ plans with increased quotas or price cuts.
The changes were announced yesterday by Internode in a blog post; in iiNet's case, customers noted quota updates in the 'toolbox' self-service portal, though there has been no official announcement by the company.
Westnet changes were flagged in a post to broadband forum Whirlpool.
An iiNet spokesperson told iTnews that the changes "will have a positive affect on more than 200,000 iiNet group customers."
For iiNet users, quotas on three of the four Naked Home plans have increased, according to a comparison of critical information summaries by iTnews. The top-of-the-range plan now comes with a terabyte of data, for $10 a month less.
|Naked DSL plans||Old Quota||New Quota||Price (Per Month)|
|Naked Home Value||100GB||100GB||$59.95|
|Naked Home-3||600GB||1000GB||$109.95 (was $119.95)|
On-net home ADSL plans for iiNet and Westnet see similar quota changes, with a $10 cut price cut on the high-end plan. The following comparison table applies to both ISPs.
|ADSL plans||Old Quota||New Quota||Price (Per Month)|
|Home-1 with Phone||100GB||100GB||$29.95|
|Home-2 with Phone||200GB||250GB||$49.95|
|Home-3 with Phone||400GB||500GB||$69.95|
|Home-4 with Phone||1000GB||1000GB||$89.95 (was $99.95)|
Data packs have also changed at all four ISPs, a spokesperson confirmed.
Internode is the only iiNet-owned ISP with on-net ADSL offerings to officially announce the quota changes in an extensive blog post.
Changes to its Easy Broadband ADSL2+ products affect only users on the higher-end plans: the 50GB, 100GB and 200GB tiers remain unchanged. The prices are broadband-only — discounts still apply when bundled with a Nodeline phone service.
