• Which company to choose and why
  • High rating customer satisfaction providers
  • Award winners for excellence, innovation and customer service

Who is the best company to get internet from? Unfortunately the answer is not straight forward and definitive. The “best” can mean different things to different people. For some the best means the company with cheapest plan or one with the most value for money. For others the best is the company that caters to their needs in terms of data access, speed, phone calls included, packages and the “best” deals.

Another measure used to determine the quality of an internet service provider is through industry awards and how the company is rated by its customers.  Have you ever seen a good broadband plan then wondered, is the company any good? Should I risk it? One way of finding out is by looking at the awards and reputation that the company has. There are definitely some standout companies in the telecommunications industry that have been commended for the good quality service they provide.


Internode is an outstanding internet service provider. Their main aim is to provide customers with a service that is open, honest and expert. They achieve this through their “in house” contact centres mostly based in Adelaide but also in Melbourne, Brisbane and Sydney.

Internode has won many awards for their customer service achievements as well as their achievements in innovation. In particular Internode has been awarded multiple Roy Morgan Research Customer Satisfaction Awards.

Roy Morgan Research has been collecting objective, independent information for over 70 years and publishes the Top 5 companies for customer satisfaction each month and year.
