Internode has slashed the price of its Fibre To The Home broadband plan but will now count both downloaded and uploaded data in monthly quotas.From today, Internode is cutting 35 per cent from the price of its 100 megabit per second (Mbps) FTTH plan with a 100-gigabyte (GB) data quota – which drops by $65 to just $119.95. The company has also introduced three new fibre plans with 200 GB data quotas, costing from $129.95 to $159.95.
In addition, Internode has also boosted data quotas across its Fibre plan range, starting with a 10GB data boost to its entry-level $49.95 plan, which now has a 15GB monthly data quota. Finally, the new plans will also have increased upstream speeds for data flowing from home to the Internet.
However, the company said that in order to fairly account for the network capacity requirements of these increased upstream speeds, it will now “count both downloaded and uploaded data in monthly quotas on these new FTTH plans.”
Internode’s Product Manager, Jim Kellett said, “As this technology moves from novelty to normality, market forces are starting to kick in. With our partner Opticomm, Internode is learning how our customers use their FTTH services and what services they most want.”
“We are also starting to see increased business utilisation of our Fibre services, so we’ve made important changes to our range of SOHO plans such as introducing static IP addresses and offering quite radical upstream speeds, such as 16 Mbps for our 100 Mbps SOHO plans,” added Kellett.
