iiNet. Perhaps best known for their home broadband plans and award winning customer service. What you probably didn’t know though is that they’re also an awesome choice for mobile broadband as well.

For those that are unfamiliar: mobile broadband is a type of internet connection delivered through the mobile towers rather than through a fixed line connection such as ADSL or ADSL2+. While there is a compromise of speed a fixed connection and a mobile broadband based solution the plus side is that you get a heap of flexibility. That’s flexibility in contracts, data amounts and where you can actually use the service. The biggest difference between a internet connection like ADSL and mobile broadband is that the latter can be used on the go (exactly the name suggests). For those that frequently travel move between houses, mobile broadband offers an internet connection that isn’t tied to a 12 month contract or to a specific location.

The usual problem with mobile broadband though is that it can be quite expensive. This is where iiNet comes in! Running on the Optus mobile network, iiNet offer a range of mobile broadband plans to suit most users without costing an arm and leg.


iiNet offers options for both the 3G and 4G spectrum of the Optus network depending on where you are and what’s available. We would generally recommend going for the 4G option if it’s available in your location as the speed and reliability increase of the 4G network is pretty substantial when compared to the 3G network. Plus iiNet offers no contract options for their 4G plans at a pretty damn cheap price. For $29.95 a month you can get 5GBs of mobile broadband data a month! Those that have even done a little research into the prices will realise how good that price is.


If you’re interested in see what iiNet can offer you with their mobile broadband plans, give them a call today on 1300 055 713.


Like all residential mobile broadband plans though you’ll notice there will be a limit of 15GB-20GBs per month. The reason for this is that the technology itself was not built to sustain more than 20GBs of traffic a month. For those looking for more than 20GBs we recommend checking out either a fixed line connection or if there are no fixed lines in your area then perhaps a fixed-wireless plan offered by a provider such as Internode. For more information on what Internode could offer you, give them a call on 1300 734 304.
