Internode Ditches 60 Broadband Plans In Major Simplification

It was only back in November that Internode revamped its existing Easy plans. Now the popular ISP has dumped virtually every other option, stripping its existing set of 78 plans down to just four main services, with extra option packs available. Here’s what’s on offer.

The Easy range covers four options: standard Easy Broadband (using Internode’s own equipment), Easy Bundle (which includes home phone services), Easy Naked (offering naked DSL options) and Easy Reach (Internode reselling access to the Telstra network). As ever, which options you can access at a location will depend on the equipment installed in your local exchange — if it’s Telstra-only, Easy Reach is your sole option. Internode calculates it now offers a total of 18 basic plans (based on download limits), compared to the 78 it offered before.

Rather than having separate business plans, Internode is offering two “option packs” which can be combined with any existing service. For $10 a month, the Power Pack option lets you have a static IP address, doesn’t count uploads and offers a higher shaping speed (512Kbps upstream and downstream) if you exceed your quota. The $30 Business Pack offers priority support, the option of usage-based charging for excess rather than shaping and a service level agreement for availability.

If you’re already on an existing Internode plan, you can continue with it, but as of today, only the Easy plans will be offered for sale to new customers.
