South Australia-based ISP, Internode, has released new fibre broadband service prices for more than 20 real estate development locations to match the speed and pricing of its National Broadband Network plans.
Internode first released NBN pricing in July though at a higher cost as an unofficial protest against NBN Co’s pricing model.
NBN Co has since provided certain discounts to its wholesale pricing and in September, Internode adjusted its NBN prices accordingly.
The NBN is now commercially available in several locations and is still being rolled out across the country.
The new fibre-to-the-home (FTTP) plans for select real estate developments start from $49.95 per month for the 30GB 12Mpbs download and 1Mbps upload option. Price goes up to $74.95 for the 30GB 100Mbps download and 40Mbps upload plan.
Plans are exactly the same as what Internode is offering on the NBN.
Only existing fibre customers in affected locations can remain on the older fibre plans. Customers will not be automatically migrated to the new plans and will have to contact Internode if they wish to do so.

The ISP stressed fibre services at Point Cook in Victoria and South Brisbane in Queensland are excluded from the new pricing options. Internode has blamed this on the “uncompetitive” wholesale pricing offered by Telstra.
