Fibre optic plans – iiNet
iiNet is offering fibre plans to Point Cook, Victoria (Alamanda Estate) and University Hills, Victoria (Bundoora). These plans offer super fast speeds which are currently only available to a limited number of Australians.
Customers have a choice between a no fixed-term contract and a 24-month contract. A no fixed-term contract incurs a $159 setup fee, while a 24-month contract incurs a $79 setup fee.
While there is a $39 plan downgrade fee, there is no extra charge to upgrade. If you cancel your plan you won’t need to pay out your contract. iiNet will simply charge you the $80 which was waived on the initial setup fee for the 24-month contract.
Both uploads and downloads are counted toward the monthly quota. If you exceed your cap, your speed will be shaped to 64/128kbps.
