iiNet has announced changes across most of its broadband plans, increasing the download limits on many of them. But there’s a price to pay for that extra data — all those plans will now count uploads as well as downloads.
Like many other providers, iiNet has always counted uploads and downloads for naked DSL customers, but hasn’t taken the same approach with other broadband products until now. Whether that makes much practical difference might depend on your usage, but it’s worth considering if you’re looking at these options. iiNet’s press release talks up its launch of a one terabyte download limit plan, but while that might attract headlines, it’s the counting of all your data that might make a more practical difference.
The new plans take effect from August 20. Naked DSL customers will automatically be migrated onto the new options; other customers will stay with their existing plans unless they elect to switch.
