In December last year, Internode switched from a tiered plan structure to a single option for its naked broadband offering -- 1000GB for $69.99. While a massive shift from Internode's modus operandi, it syncs with quasi-owner iiNet's plans, so no real surprises there. However, current Internode users looking to change their plans, it does come with a caveat -- all content is metered.

Internode has added 4G support to its NodeMobile month-by-month mobile phone and data plan, a move that is undoubtedly influenced by the recent Optus 4G network expansion in Adelaide. How competitive is its offering? We've crunched the numbers.
Internode today announced details of the phone services it will offer with its NBN plans. Given the choice between paying $19.95 a month line rental for a semi-traditional phone service, nothing for a VOIP service apart from calls, or giving up on a landline altogether, which option are you going to choose?
Internode has expanded its range of NodeMobile plans with a $60 a month plan that includes unlimited calls. It might tempt some existing NodeMobile customers, but there are still better deals to be had.
Moving into a house on a brand-new estate can be a mixed bag. You'll often have a high-speed fibre connection on offer rather than having to use an ageing copper network, but you may not have any choice about which ISP you can use for that service. Lifehacker favourite Internode has just started offering a fibre service at 125 newly-built estates, giving residents in those areas a choice between buying a service from Telstra or through Internode.
We don't normally track executive movements here at Lifehacker, but this is a significant one in the ongoing melding of iiNet and Internode following last year's buyout: Internode founder Simon Hackett will leave his day-to-day role at the company in August, and will join the iiNet board at the same time.
The range of National Broadband Network (NBN) plans continues to expand, and there are many more to come. Planhacker covers all the plans on offer in Australia right now in a custom spreadsheet you can use to find the best option for you.
I posted about this last week on Gizmodo, but it occurred to me that plenty of Lifehacker readers must be Internode users and may be unaware of the new plan.
The integration of iiNet and Internode continues. The latest development? Internode is offering its Easy Broadband plans through another 242 iiNet-equipped DSLAMs, further reducing its dependence on reselling ADSL services sourced through Telstra.
The good news? As promised when iiNet purchased Internode, unmetered Freezone content is being made available to customers of both ISPs. The bad news? It will be quite a while before iiNet's unmetered iTunes and Xbox Live access will shift across to Internode.
More positive news for Internode customers: while it dumped its 200GB per month offering as part of a plan revamp last month, it has now restored that plan to its broadband offerings in response to "customer demand". Rather like parent iiNet's dumping of peak quotas earlier today, the change only applies to Internode's own ADSL2+ network, not services wholesaled from Telstra.
