Internode has discounted the price of its 3G modems as a result of the strong Australian dollar.
Called NodeMobile Data, Internode was a late entrant in the wireless market when it launched the wireless Internet service back in April, but said it wanted to ensure quality of the product before releasing it to the public.
The company is cutting the price of its residential E160E 3G and professional E1762 HSDPA/HSUPA modems by $50 for customers who do not wish to commit to a two-year contract. In a statement, Internode product manager, Jim Kellett, said the price reduction reflected the improved strength of the Australian dollar since NodeMobile’s launch. He added that the ISP has experienced great uptake of the service and expected the discount to accelerate its adoption.
Internode has also unveiled a Panorama 3G antenna designed to boost signal reception for NodeMobile customers.
The E160E 3G and E1762 HSDPA/HSUPA modems are priced at $99 and $149 respectively or $50 on a 24-month contract. The Panorama 3G antenna can be purchased for $29.95.
