    I am so disinclined to switch to the NBN – most of what I hear about it from friends and colleagues who have already switched or read on line is “average” to “very negative”. I’m currently on your ADSL2+ system which works OK (giving approximately 8Mbps download during the evenings) and should be equivalent to NBN (which you say above gives ~12 Mbps evening download speeds. Yet you and other providers are trying to crank us up to the high tier “50” band for an extra $15-20 per month. The NBN seems like a significant downgrade in both service and value.

    • Tal Waterhouse says:

      Hi Simon,

      Thanks for your comment and feedback in relation to NBN services. NBN would certainly help deliver both a faster and more consistent speed on your service and would definitely be the way forward given the eventual need to move over from any conventional phone/DSL system as part of the national rollout. I can definitely understand that moving straight to a higher speed may be a little daunting and would recommend speaking to our team any time on 13 19 17 about any reservations you have as the team would be able to help look into your line, service and account to provide assistance and find a plan that would be perfect for your usage and speed needs.

    Been on 50 for years. Never ever had more than 30 . Paying twice the price . Cannot wait for accc. Cannot wait for my huge refund

    • Tal Waterhouse says:

      While any speed issues may come down to a physical limitation due to line distance or other factors, we’d love to help work out any reason for a dip in performance and help find any possible solutions. Feel free to shoot an email to us via iiOnline@iinet.net.au with further information and we’ll be happy to help. – Tal

  3. Carlos Cobelas says:

    I keep getting NBN offers but we don’t even have it on our street yet. And I’m not holding my breath for it to happen. Pathetic rollout thanks to government ineptitude.

    • Tal Waterhouse says:

      If you’re receiving offers that might mean that services and availability aren’t far off, Carlos. It’s certainly worth getting a pre-order submitted so that you’re at the front of the line for an installation as soon as the services are available in your area. Give us a call on 13 19 17 any time and we’ll be happy to get you sorted out. – Tal

    I am an iinet customer with landline phone and broadband and mobile phone, plus alarm system that automatically calls each day. I want then bn, soon to be connected, to provide the same, or slightly better service. You have all my figures. What nbn service do I need for this. How would my alarm system, splitter and modem be affected.

    • Tal Waterhouse says:

      Hi Dr Warren,

      In your case it would be best to look at getting your alarm service switched over to a mobile solution as the landline service would be moved over to a digital ‘VoIP’ line as part of any upgrade. Aside from that, our team on 13 19 17 can help look at your current plan and usage to help determine the best option from the current range for you. Give us a call any time or shoot us an email via iiOnline@iinet.net.au if you’d like to get started.

  5. David Hicks says:

    We went on to the NBN following discussion with IINET personnel about the usage we have had in the past and what we probably need in the future. This included our land line.
    Having said that our speed on the internet is not great but it’s OK for our needs and our package includes the land line. We are paying around $50 per month for the internet and land line. The NBN50 sounds pretty good but we don’t use Netflix etc so probably not much point in upgrading. Regards, David.

    • Tal Waterhouse says:

      While a change to 50 may not be on the cards, it may be worth revisiting the plan range in your account options in Toolbox to see what’s presently available and if a minor bump in speed may help with your day to day activities. If you’ve got any questions give us a call any time on 13 19 17 and we’ll be happy to assist you. – Tal

  6. Kenn says:

    The modem is rubbish. Wifi is almost non existent. However the NBN service from iiNet is excellent, recommended. But for the sake of your clients upgrade the modem.

    • Tal Waterhouse says:

      Sounds like you may be having some localised WiFi trouble there, Kenn. Have you checked out the modem’s channel settings to help see if there’s a congestion issue and if it can be improved upon by moving to a different channel to avoid it? We’ve got some more tips and advice over on our other article here: https://blog.iinet.net.au/guide-optimise-wifi/ – Tal

  7. John Hollett says:

    Why are you sending this when I have been on NBN since it was available and you upgraded me to NBN 50 plan. The maximum I can get is 37mbps
    and I am about 300 metres from the node at any time not 43.7mbps

    • Tal Waterhouse says:

      Hi John,

      Speeds can have a number of determining factors. When testing, are you making sure to use a local server to test from and that you’ve closed or disconnected any devices and applications that might also be using the connection? Finally, if you’re testing over WiFi we’d suggest testing over Ethernet instead as this removes the possibility of WiFi dropoff and interference as another influence over speeds.

      If you need a hand looking into the speeds you’re getting and how to improve on them, give our support team a call any time on 13 22 58 and we’ll be glad to help out.

    I don’t know what to make of this. It informs about plans but does not provide a cost to any of the plans.
    How is any one going to make a decision to buy a plan?
    I guess the plans are free or secret.

  9. Rod says:

    I have you NBN50 plan and have never ever got any more than 26mbps. You can never provide this speed on the technology at my premises. Why advertise what you cannot supply?

    • Tal Waterhouse says:

      Hi Rod,

      Speeds on your plan would be largely influenced by a number of internal as well as external factors. Have you been in contact with members of our support team on 13 22 58 or notified of any maximum attainable speeds based on your line’s distance from a node if on FTTN?

      If the maximum attainable speed is slower than the plan selected, you may wish to consider changing your plan to a more suitable speed tier from the range we now have on offer via Toolbox online: https://toolbox3.iinet.net.au

    I don’t want NBN Satellite.
    Offer another way, & I may consider NBN Thank You, Keith Ward

  11. Phil Hartwell says:

    I’ve already signed up in August because our fixed wireless service was supposed to be available at the end of August, but the best speed on offer was NBN25. I would love NBN50 as that is the spec for fixed wireless. When can I expect to be connected? Still waiting!

    • Tal Waterhouse says:

      Sounds like the application may still be in progress, Phil. If you need a hand checking out the application to see where it’s up to, feel free to give us a call any time on 13 22 58 or shoot us an email via iiOnline@iinet.net.au with some more details. – Tal

  13. Ngọc Chau Ho says:

    Belong internet provider offered me NBN 50 for $65/month . Can you match them with that price? I’m your member for nearly 10 years now and considering joining the Belong if you don’t give me a better deal.

    • Tal Waterhouse says:

      Thank you very much for your ten years of support, Ngoc!

  14. Frank Abbonizio says:

    All the above sounds so great.
    What about your exhisting customers ????
    I am paying $79.99 a month and I simply get the NBN 50 with none of the extras.
    Can anyone maybe put some light on this ?
    I would like to add that I have been an IINet client for over 15 years.

  15. Fred Cugley says:

    I signed up for iiNet satellite, but realised data quota was only 60GB at peak time, which is totally useless in this day of streaming, eg,10 movies a week and nothing left for other internet browsing, email, Facebook etc, cancelled after a few days!
    I’m only 3 Kms from the suburbs in a rural area in the North Eastern area, but no option for decent NBN!
    When is the NBN going to service rural SA properly?

  16. Sven Meyer says:

    I can just say that I had nbn100 with TPG in Byron Bay in 2018 and now, since mid 2019 nbn50 with iinet close to Ballina and in both cases the Internet works great, flawless and with the advertised speed.

    Disclosure: I am a IT professional working in Internet technology space since 25 years, not / never affiliated with TGP or iinet

  17. Wendy says:

    The issue I gave is that we’ve been getting drop outs, streaming is often not satisfactory. I’d love to go back to the ncable we had before, damn the government for this outdated nbn.

  18. Joseph Lia says:

    at the moment I don’t have NBN my speed is download 2.7 mbps upload is 0.7 this is on a good day sometimes its much worse , give me a good reason to sign up with iiNet , when I ring to get some more speed im sent some around the world trying to explain to them , for not much success, sorry westnet you used to be OK once

    I’ve been with iiNet for over 10 years. You’ve always been great however for the last 10 months or so, we’ve been getting speeds around 1-2mbps! After numerous calls and “fixing” it up to 6mbps, we’re back to square one. It feels like this is happening so we have to change over. We’ve been on the $59.95 a month which is what we want to pay, running a small business that we have the same plan on and a home office, our home office speed is rubbish. We do t just need thenincreased speed at night, we need it all day!

  20. Graham Harvey says:

    I chose the NBN50 plan because that speed suited my family/business needs. However NBN cannon deliver that speed. I’ve been downgraded to the 25 plan and on a really good day I might get 14Mbps.
    The NBN can’t deliver

    I am very happily on the NBN Wifi with an extra cheap start-up Westnet. That is
    because I am old and I get everything I need

  22. Katharine Pinkerton says:

    I am an iiNet customer and was told some months ago (when the nuisance calls started) that I did not need NBN.So why have you started to tell me that I do need it. I have VDSL which I was told was adequate.
    If NBN is cheaper and quicker then I will go for it. At present my bill is for about $80 per month.

    • Tal Waterhouse says:

      Hi Katharine,

      Whether your service needs upgrading to an NBN service will be circumstantial based on what kind of service or network you and everyone else is on. In your case as a VDSL user there would be no need to change to the NBN as you are using a service and connection on a separate infrastructure. If you’re interested or have any questions, give us a call any time on 13 19 17 and we’ll be happy to help out.
