Primus has launched a selection of retail National Broadband Network (NBN) services in Tasmania.
The ISP is offering fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) services to several regional towns starting with Smithton, Scottsdale and Midway Point. Standard NBN plans will be available from $39.95 per month when bundled with a phone plan, or on a 12- or 24-month plan. Phone plans start from $24.95 per month including national and local calls.
Primus will also offer its iPrimus Max FTTH $89.95 plan half-price ($44.97) for the first six months including local, national and mobile calls and broadband access. Line rental, set-up and wireless router will be bundled into the 24-month plan free of charge. Plans will have a 5GB limit during peak times (10am-2am) and 10GB off peak (2am – 10am). Once they’ve exceeded data allowances, users will have their Internet speeds limited.
Primus will also offer streaming ABC iView, high-definition video and movies on-demand to its residential customers, while corporate subscribers will be able to access its new Accella VoIP product.
In a statement, Primus CEO, Ravi Bhatia, claimed the NBN was the first opportunity for many customers to receive rich Internet media services such as VoIP, IPTV and high-definition video.
“We are thrilled to be one of the first ISPs to provide state-of-the-art communications in Tasmania through the NBN,” he stated. “We’re particularly excited that our customers will have access to a wide range of new capabilities and advanced services using this new generation high-speed fibre-to-the-home network.”
As previously reported in ARN, Primus and Internode announce their involvement with the Tasmanian NBN last November.
