Steve Harley, General Manager Business at iiNet said:”We learnt a lot from the original BoB and after selling more than 70,000 units, we got a feel for what our customers are looking for when looking for an all-in-one home internet solution.
“BoB was the start of something new in Australia – combining the modem, router and handset in the one unit. It was a revolution and it’s only natural that we would develop our own version with the same functionality but with our own finishing touches,” said Harley.
The new handset has a full colour screen and the model has an inbuilt answering machine together with parental control. It is also FetchTV compatible, in readiness for the NBN.
Pricing has not been announced as yet, but the model will include ADSL2+ modem router supporting 802.11n standards, dual VoIP capability to support two phone numbers from dual providers, and is powered by DECT.
“The introduction of iiNet BoB into our suite of products is part of our plan to grow our product development within iiNet Labs and set ourselves apart with an innovative offering combined with outstanding customer service,” Harley said.
