iiNet’s ‘budget’ ISP brand Jiva is accepting customer sign-ups from today. As we’ve already pointed out, $79 a month for ‘unlimited’ ADSL2 could sound tempting, but you need to be aware of the restrictions involved with this plan. Depending on your usage habits, a cheaper package may make more sense.
While the mobile rates aren’t as prohibitive as we feared, you’re still tied to a 24-month contract and have limited support hours. You’ll also need to be at a qualifying address with a functioning landline and happy to use Jiva’s prescribed router. If you’re tempted, hit the Jiva site to check if your address is serviced.
