Cheap ADSL1 Bundles – iPrimus Home phone and Internet Plans
If you bundle your ADSL1 internet plan with an iPrimus home phone, you can receive a monthly discount of $10 on your ADSL broadband service. iPrimus offers a range of internet plans to suit both the occasional surfer and the heavy downloaders.
Setup fees are very reasonable: $0 on a 24-month contract, $59 on a 12-month contract and $118 if you’re on a no minimum term contract.
$29.95 +Home phone line rental = 1GB (256kbps)
$39.95 + Home phone line rental = 5GB (512kbps)
$59.95 + Home phone line rental = 12GB (1500kbps)
$64.95 + Home phone line rental = 40GB+40GB (1500kbps)
$69.95 + Home phone line rental = 40GB+40GB (8000kbps)
There is a choice between two different home phone plans you can bundle your internet service with. There is a $29.95 plan with 17.5c local calls and $2/20 minutes mobile phone calls, or a $31.45 plan with 16c local calls and $1.89 for the first 20 minutes.
Pros: Cheap line rental, most of the plans aren’t split between peak and off peak times, cheap call rates, shorter or no minimum contract term available.
Cons: Not as much download as some other internet service providers, there are no calls included in the plan.
iPrimus also have a bundle special which is available both on ADSL (1500kbps) and ADSL2+, and is great for those who use the home phone to make loads of local calls.
The plan is $89.95 a month on a 24-month contract, and this will give you unlimited local calls, and 7GB peak and 14GB off peak of data. Calls to mobiles are $1.89 for the first 20 minutes with a 39c flagfall. Remarkably, there are no setup fees, and if you are after a 1-port modem iPrimus will also throw one in for free.
Pros: Unlimited calls, low call rates, free modem and no setup fees.
Cons: 24-month contract, expensive if you don’t make a large amount of calls on your home phone.
Similar plans to the iPrimus bundles are the home phone and internet bundles with iiNet and Netspace.
These plans are available as of June 2010 but are subject to change.
