Internode cuts prices and increases speed on FTTH

Internode has announced price cuts, quota boosts and increased upstream speeds for its fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) service.
The ISP has cut $65 off the price of its 100Mbps plan to $119.95. It has also introduced three new fibre plans based on 200GB data quotas, with monthly charges ranging from $129.95-$159.95.
Internode has also increased its upstream speeds. For example, 25Mbps plans will now have double the former upstream speed to 2Mbps, and 100Mbps will go from 5Mbps to 8Mbps. Its entry-level $49.95 plan gets a 10GB boost to 15GB. However, Internode will now count downloaded and uploaded data in monthly quotas.
“As this technology moves from novelty to normality, market forces are starting to kick in,” Internode Product Manager, Jim Kellett, said in a statement. “With our partner, Opticomm, Internode is learning how our customers use their FTTH services they most want.
“We are also starting to see increased business utilisation of our fibre services, so we’ve made important changes to our range of SOHO plans such as introducing static IP addresses and offering quite radical upstream speeds, such as 16Mbps for our 100Mbps SOHO plans.”
