iiNet turns on Perth NBN services
- 26 June, 2013 10:10
About 1057 services were launched in Perth through iiNet, Internode, and Westnet, with more expected throughout the week.
This is the first major roll-out of NBN fibre in suburban Perth, and takes the ISP’s NBN customer total past 15,000.
iiNet said several residents have already jumped on board, including father-of-one, Shane McDermott, who was among the first in Perth to connect to the fibre service.
McDermott, a 29-year-old finance manager, claims the connection has transformed the way in which he works in his Victoria Park home, allowing more time with his one-year-old son.
“I could work from home before, but it used to take ages to do simple things like get documents off the work server, so I pretty much had to just work off my desktop,” McDermott said. “Now I can work off the company server with no problems, and it’s all just so much easier.”
