Fancy paying $79 a month for unlimited broadband plus landline calls? iiNet is hoping the answer is yes, since that's the premise of its newly-announced Jiva spin-off brand.
You won't be able to buy into Jiva until September, and several are the details are scant (we're following up with iiNet and will have a more detailed comparison later today). What the press release promises is this:
For $79 per month on a 24-month plan, Jiva customers will get an ADSL2+ broadband connection, unlimited broadband data, all local and national landline calls, and a wireless modem.
That's very similar to TPG's much-promoted all-you-can-eat deal. One big difference: the Jiva plan doesn't appear to include calls to mobiles, which is a fairly major omission. Would you be tempted?
