Westnet is the regional brand for the Perth-based ISP.
Kalgoorlie has secured more than 1400 new points of access on iiNet’s own broadband infrastructure. iiNet has invested over $5 million in extending high-speed regional broadband this year.
“By building our own high speed broadband network, we can offer better value and bigger quotas as well as our new internet television service, fetchtv,” Westnet retail general manager, Matthew Dunstan, said in a statement. “In a Kalgoorlie first, residents can now access high-definition digital subscription television over their broadband connection.”
iiNet was one of the first ISPs to take up services on Nextgen’s Perth to Geraldton backhaul link in March. The 426km fibre link was built as part of the $250 million National Broadband Network (NBN) regional backbone blackspot program (RBBP).
