Internode NodeLine Is Cheap But Strange

Internode has added a standard telephony service to its range. The prices are cheaper than conventional landlines, but the question remains: why?

Internode’s corporate mission states that it is “committed to using broadband technology to redefine the national telecommunications environment”, so products like wireless broadband and naked DSL make sense. But what’s the point of reselling a bog-standard Telstra line? Customers seeking to save money will pursue the naked option, while users who are paranoid about VOIP don’t seem like Internode’s natural constituency.

With that whine over, it’s still one way of escaping Telstra’s billing system. Internode’s own analysis suggests that a “typical” caller could save $40 on a standard phone bill, though that very much depends on how often you call mobiles.
