iiNet moves into first place for fibre

Surpasses number of FTTH customers connected to NBN

Telco service provider, iiNet, has connected more than 10,000 customers to Fibre to the Home (FTTH) broadband across Australia, surpassing the total number of FTTH customers connected to the NBN.

It said that more than 8000 iiNet group customers are connected to high-speed FTTH broadband via iiNet’s TransACT network, the Internode network and wholesale services. A further 2700 are connected through the NBN.

iiNet CEO, Michael Malone, said the company’s recent acquisitions and growth have positioned it to progress in the Australian FTTH broadband space. “When it comes to FTTH, we’re using every opportunity to connect as many Australians as we can. We aim to upgrade the lives of our customers and give them access to innovative products and better customer service,” he said.

The number of residential customers connected by the iiNet group has also surpassed the number of Australian homes connected to fibre by any other provider. “As well as delivering super-fast broadband to more people than are connected to FTTH through the NBN, we’re now the largest provider of FTTH services in the country. This is all about giving our customers the very best, sooner,” Malone said.
