Save money

Refresh your contract at your new address and there’ll be no broadband activation fees, no contract break fees on your existing broadband service, and if applicable, you’ll also receive discounts on new line connections or NBN™ New Development Fees.

Flexibility

    How long will it take for NBN to be set up at a new development area that’s NBN ready? Do we have a time or date until it can be installed in that area?

    • Leo Yarnold says:

      Hi Paina,

      The timeframes for this is variable, as it does depend on what works need to be completed to complete a connection to you, as well as what connection type you have. Allow around 7-10 working days from time of application, but this will likely be longer as this is a new development and there will be some demand to connect. We’d estimate doubling the standard timeframes, just in case.

    if i ever moved house I would leave the nbn behind it would be the worse thing that was ever thrusted on use.we are $377 OUT OF POCKET AND AS PENSIONERS THAT IS A LOT OF MONEY.WE HAVE BEEN FORCED TO HAVE A MOBILE WHICH WE DID’NE NEED,BUT BECAUSE MY HUSBAND IS NOT WELL WE HAVE TO HAVE A PHONE. THE OLD SAYING”IF IT AIN’T BROKE DON’T FIX IT”

    When are we moving on to the next step. 1. A Co-axial cable has been installed between the ‘pit’ in the street in front of our duplex Unit and an NBN termination box installed above a Telstra termination box on the external wall. That was late in December 2017. I understand that you are busy but when is the next link between Termination point and the internal Internet Modem to be started? Cheers

      Hi Alexander,

      It sounds like you have the makings of an NBN HFC connection. NBN has placed the rollout on hold for now but they will be resuming this in a few months. We’ll provide more information as soon as NBN passes it along.

  5. Ruth Scott says:

    Oh dear moved less than 2 months ago and cost us! Story of our lives but at 72 you’d think we would be used to that by now. Congrats anyway on your new deal for movers. Ours was made easy by the iiNet team even though we had to pay the nbn fee of ? $79. Good on you Team Folk. Cheers Ruth

  6. Helen Davis says:

    After 2years at my new address and several phone calls i notice that my new address has still not been updated in the phone book or in the white pages on the internet. I would appreciate it if this could be rectified before the new addition is released,

    • Brianna Burgess says:

      Hi Helen,

      We’ve managed to locate your account and appears we have accurate and up to date information for you. We expect this will also be reflected within the new addition. Please don’t hesitate to jump onto your Toolbox (https://toolbox3.iinet.net.au) or reach out to our Support team on 13 22 58 if you would like to confirm.

    I have been with iinet for years and I still can’t stop recommending iinet to everyone. Friendly and helpful service when and if you ever need to contact them. I’ve moved a few times over the years and they’ve made it easy to keep my internet with me wherever and whenever I need it.

  9. Matt says:

    Too much of a coincidence, I search the internet for a new home and now iiNet send me an email saying I can move and relocate my internet. So much for privacy.

    • Leo Yarnold says:

      Hey Matt,

      No need to be alarmed – this is purely a co-incidence. We don’t have that sort of access to your details and if we did there would be severe ramifications from the relevant governing bodies.

    I Can only say great things about this corporation. Always great support and sales help and excellent an carrier.

  11. Cass says:

    Love iinet! Always helpful when I have an issue. I appreciate the callback feature when callcentre queues are long, and the clear explanations, directions, politeness and patience of staff as well.

  12. pietro marchello says:

    Dear Briana

    further to your reply to Helen Davis 2nd march can one have a white pages entry with a mobile number. We don’t have a landline only mobile phones and mobile Internet all with iinet and are all cost effective using your great plans

  13. Dan says:

    I agree with Matt – I’ve just been searching for a new apartment and now iiNet starts sending me emails about my move. Definitely a privacy issue here, not a coincidence, sorry Leo.

  14. Pietro Marchello says:

    Brianna Burgess re your reply to Helen Davis March 5th, I wonder if mobile phone numbers and addresses can be used in white pages. Because of iinet great plans we have no reason to have a landline, only mobiles and mobile Internet but it would be great to have a white pages entry

    • Leo Yarnold says:

      Hi Pietro,

      To give you some good news, it is indeed possible to have your mobile listed in the White Pages directory. We can do this via a request to the wholesaler as an opt-in for you.

    Just moved house 4 weeks ago & changing our internet was the most stressful experience. Rang iinet to get the internet changed & told we had to pay $79 to move. Mentioned that 2 other big companies would do our connection for nothing & was then reminded several times that if we change companies we need to pay about $380 for breaking our contract by moving addresses. So we go ahead with iinet since moving is already an expensive process & not wanting to get slugged with the large breaking the contract fee. Finally got our internet connection installed a week ago through iinet.

    • Leo Yarnold says:

      Hi Sara,

      Thanks for replaying this experience and our apologies for the stress caused. We do indeed charge relocation costs, as we do need to cover the costs of connecting you at the new premises. If you’re already in a contract, it means we’ve already absorbed the cost of connecting you the first time around and need to make these costs back during the contract period.

      The timeframe here is a concern as 4 weeks is too long – we’d anticipate that the process would take around 2 weeks, so there may have well been an issue that contributed to the delay.

    Moving to a newly built home in an older suburb and trying to arrange internet transfer with iinet has been a disaster. I hate Philipino call centre, most staff difficult to understand. They all said ‘no problem’ but final response ‘Telstra unable to install line, so not able to move with iinet!!! :-( Been with iinet over 15 years, this is our 1st move. We are very disappointed and frustrated by whole process. Reluctantly we have HAD to go with Telstra.

    • Leo Yarnold says:

      Hi Dee,

      This is very disappointing to hear and we do sincerely apologise.

      We’d suggest that the failure to be able to connect was down to a lack of cable records for the address and/or that a new line connection may have been required. Either way, we’re saddened to hear that you’ve has to move on and thank you for your considerable amount of time with us.

      – Leo
