    Just saw the news and Telstra was fifth, not third as you put it?

    • Leo Yarnold says:

      Hi Stevan,

      This article was written before today’s results for speeds we’re announced. Also today’s news is from a different party, not Choice.

    Not surprised really, always said you were the best

  3. Congratulations IINet. I concur! As a customer for 13 years I have been well satisfied with all aspects of IINet’s service. I’m happy to have recommended IINet to many people who have asked my opinion. None of them has been disappointed. Great work!

  4. MARK MORETTI says:

    IINETs NBN has been good for me, telephone support if needed had been terrific and you get to speak to a person. I personally have not had any technical issues just mobile support queries.
    Thanks IINET

  5. harry lowden says:

    been a customer for aprox 9 years and no intension of leaving yet

  6. Terry Brice says:

    My only reservation is that with my currant plan with iiNett at $59.99 i receive free national and local phone calls, and if i take up the new NBN 12 iinett $59.99 deal then it means i would have to pay for phone calls, thus making me worse off, Going on for 7 years with iinett and i use use very little data, so why should i now have to pay as i go with my phone calls, this will make me worse off as i am a pensioner, I may be forced to have to use my Amaysim mobile for NBN if i cant receive a fair deal with iinett cheers terry

    With iiNet on adsl2 at moment. Any issues changing over to NBN?

    • Tal Waterhouse says:

      Hey Shane,

      Certainly shouldn’t be once NBN becomes available at your address. Once you’re ready to apply after it becomes available, give us a call on 13 19 17 and we’ll be happy to assist in getting things submitted for you and work through any potential points of contention that might occur.

  10. Hopwood Peter says:

    Well done! My changeover to NBN and FetchTV was painless and straight-forward, thanks to good hardware and instructions I could not fault. iiNet is a professional outfit, supportive and responsive.
    Just don’t let your parent TPG offer anything you don’t!

  11. John Blainey says:

    My connection with iiInet effectively dates from when I joined Eagle about 25 years ago.
    I feel well served throughout that time.

    But I feel particularly appreciative of the support iiNet provided when I had to change to NBN recently. Although over 90 and not the most technically adept, I was able to find my way through the details of re-connecting to the new thing within an hour or two, with your helpful documentation and a call or two to your service people. Most of my friends have not had as easy an adjustment. Well done, iiNet.

  13. Barry Stroyan says:

    why is my wify always dropping out on my tv i am a pensioner and cannot afford a tech to fix it

    • Tal Waterhouse says:

      Hi Barry,

      It’d be hard to narrow down a specific reason for the WiFi dropping between your modem and TV without trying out some local testing to narrow down and rule out common factors. Have you spoken to our support team on 13 22 58 for assistance in getting this fixed up wherever possible?

      – Tal

  14. Kathleen Mitson says:

    I am extremely happy with you as my internet provider. Your customer service is great!

  15. John Rumley says:

    IINET has big company top performance with the feel of a intimate caring small operator who cares about its customers. Always ready to respond to a call for help.

  16. Sue says:

    What a load of rubbish. I was with westnet for 14 years and had no problems. As soon as I changed to NBN, what rubbish. The connection is very up and down, even watching Netflix is a problem.

    • Leo Yarnold says:

      Hi Sue,

      We’re so sorry to hear this – we expect and want better for your NBN connection. If you can, please e-mail us, with your details, to We can then take a look at the connection from our side and organise for our team to give you a call to lend a hand.

  17. Tim says:

    This is a joke.
    They failed to turn up TWICE to connect me to NBN and just put me back of the queue.
    I have now been put back 2 1/2 months!!
    They even charge $10 more per month for their ViiP service.
    Nobody calls back, nobody returns emails and I have to contact them about the failures
    I have been with them for 11 years

    • Leo Yarnold says:

      Hi Tim,

      This is disappointing to hear, as, like all providers, we’re dependent on NBN and their technicians to attend and complete connections when requested.

      We’d like to lend a hand with this. Could you please e-mail your details through to us, citing this post, to We can then step in and arrange further assistance.

  18. wallace says:

    Been with Westnet/ IiNet for 13 yrs, Since changing to the NBN with IiNet, this household has had nothing but trouble with connection- weekly calls for customer support with I’m afraid too many reference numbers to type here. Lucky to have a D/L connection speed above 0.95 mbps and our U/L is at 17.0 mbps ( this is a warning sign already) after 6 months of hardly any connection and barely logging on the internet, IiNet/ Westnet always serve us another issue to deal with 2 modems in 5 months, faults in line, Port was replaced & Telstra billed us heavily, then another line fault, was told it’s the ” Jumpers ” now again, last night another excuse ” it was our Modem that must be faulty” only thing working in our house regarding internet is our mobile phone always asking for internet support ( house phone with internet doesn’t work). No emails, no help, No stable internet connection but our payment of money has no problem reaching the company! next move is formal complaint, then Telecommunications Ombudsman.

    • Leo Yarnold says:

      Hi Wallace,

      Thanks for getting in touch, we do appreciate it!

  19. Kim Glew says:

    I have been with iinet for 15 years, and up until i switched to NBN, i had great service. Now i pay for a 50mb connection which never breaks 20mb! Constant drop outs, some nights it drops out several times in a short time. I wish i could have my ADSL2 connection back….. it gave Very little trouble ever. Better than this unreliable garbage our government served up…..

    • Leo Yarnold says:

      Hey Kim,

      That’s a concern to hear, but we can help out! Dropout issues and speed issues are interlinked, but they can be beaten with methodical troubleshooting and faulting. Please e-mail us with your details, citing this thread, to and we can jump in to lend a hand.

  20. David C Williams says:

    I am due to forced to change over to NBN by February After all the problems I hear about, am not looking forward to this. My land line has caller id, this is handy as about 65% of my calls are scams, does iinet nbn have this feature?

    • Leo Yarnold says:

      Hi David,

      You most certainly can have Caller ID on your phone service when going to NBN.

    After trying for over 3months to get nbn fixed I give up
    I pay 119 a month and got a refund of $6.45 what a joke
    Very poor poor poor iinet crap service

  23. sue brown says:

    I have had the worst experience with iinet and nbn. First it wasnt explained to me that my landline would be cut off without warning a week before i would receive a modem.My elderly mother with a heart problem cant stay here without a landline as her care alarm wont work. I have been lied to repeatedly about when i will receive the modem which they apparently forgot to order in the first place. Phones and internet cut off monday and modem ordered tuesday to arrive in 5 days maybe. They sent me a tracking number today but guess what? Star track doesnt recognise it. Surprise surprise. Disgusting.

  25. Richard Holmes says:

    My only gripe is that I’ve been with westnet for 10 years and I switched to satellite and I’m paying $64.99 per month + phone and line rental for 60GB peak ,190GB off-peak the 60GB doesn’t last a month when you want to watch Netflix or YouTube video’s when the 190GB doesn’t get used . So why can’t you have unlimited data like another provider does which I might go to once my contract ends.

    • Leo Yarnold says:

      Hi Richard,

      Thanks for getting in touch!

      Unlimited data plan are something that is not able to be offered on NBN Sky Muster Satellite connections, as these are strictly controlled by NBN. Satellite connections have very limited capacity, so they aren’t able to support the amount of data use customers are wanting to engage in. Bear in mind that there are only two satellites in orbit! As a provider, we’ve chosen to push our data limits to the absolute maximum NBN allows for. Going post those limits will see the risk of NBN slowing the customer’s connection down themselves. This is something we want to avoid.

      – Leo

  26. Richard Holmes says:

    Hi Leo
    Just on your reply my daughter and son-in-law have satellite NBN with the provider that I would be looking at if I can’t get any satisfaction and theirs is unlimited data

    • Leo Yarnold says:

      Hi Richard,

      We’ve taken a few moments to research this, as we do want to ensure that we’re offering the best value we can. There are no unlimited data plans available in Australia for NBN Sky Muster services, no matter the provider. This is due to the fact that NBN has set strict data limits on Sky Muster satellite connections and controls the data allowances closely. You may be mistaking a fixed line service for this instead.

  27. Helen says:

    We aren’t on nbn yet but our internet over the 6 months has been shocking
    Every time we ring they reset and say all is good, but all is not good
    After over 12 years with iiNet, Telstra is looking good

    • Josh McKenzie says:

      Hi Helen,

      Thanks for taking the time to share your experience. We’re always committed to ensuring that services perform the best that they can given the infrastructure provided. That being said, if the service is routinely slowing down and needing a bump from our end to get back up and running, we’d certainly prefer to try get to the bottom of the matter.

      When speeds are slowing down and you lift your home phone receiver is the dial tone nice and clear or is there static or crackles and pops occurring? This would indicate there may be a phone line fault, which can very much cause similar troubles to what you’ve mentioned here. If there is any line noise, I would certainly recommend giving your phone provider a call to have a fault lodged as this would very likely resolve your internet speeds in the same breath.

      – Josh

  28. Bronwen Young says:

    iiNet used to have great service. Not anymore. My phone and internet have been out for almost 3 weeks. iiNet say it is up to Telstra to fix the line. Telstra say don’t talk to us, you need to call iiNet. Very disappointing for long term customers to be told all we can do is wait or change phone plans to get more data. No indication of how much longer we have to wait.

    • Josh McKenzie says:

      Hi Bronwen,

      Thanks for taking the time to share! Faults on the ADSL network when raised to Telstra are raised to the Wholesale arm of Telstra and are a very different entity with no public facing presence. In situations where there is a widespread outage, the wholesale technicians work to ensure that the cause is discovered and rectified as soon as possible.

      That said, we were able to locate the account and we do appear to be overdue an update from wholesale and have requested that the team follow up with you today to ensure there is as much transparency as possible.

    I’ve been with Iinet for over 10yrs now .. previously a Ozemail user, and wouldn’t even consider leaving!. Always had great customer service when and if needed (A rarity). Bit of a hitch when switching to NBN, NBN Tech said it was NBNs fault, they double book everyone. Definite Iinet fan!.

  30. Jane Kavanagh says:

    Having been with iiNet for more than 21 years, I have nothing but praise for the service and assistance…not to mention their helpful and professional attitude. Any reported problem [rare, very rare] is given immediate attention and followed up. Our switch to NBN was perfectly seamless and all the possible ‘hiccups’ that might occur were pointed out by staff clearly, in detail and well in advance of the changeover. I can not fault iiNet in any fashion.

  31. Steve says:

    Been with iiNet for 4 years on ADSL2(4.65MBPS) as that was all that was available in my area, greystanes. Customer service was always great. Waited patiently for NBN and the team at iiNet kept me well informed of dates for install, finally had it installed and boooom 95mbps down and 37 up … over the moon .. Well down iiNet.

  32. Stuart says:

    Been with iiNet over 6 years and ADSL2 was never a problem and when it was I got great service from iiNet … then NBN came along! The accounts department charged me for ADSL2 plus NBN, a new Fetch mini plus 2 more I didn’t have, they charged me for the Ultimate TV pack plus the 2 packs I do have, the phone land line had been down for over a month while they changed to VOIP and they stuffed up the phone number 3 times yet I still got charged for that too! When I questioned my bill they had the gall to say it was correct! I asked them to look at my last 3 bills and compare them to what they were trying to charge me for and they relented and credited me for all the overcharges. I have had so many open Tasks with iiNet the past 2 months I can’t keep up. What happened to the great service and knowledgeable staff I used to deal with? Not happy iiNet!

  33. Alan Brown says:

    Great service it used to be until TPG took over. I am on NBN now and so far no complaints with the service except its a bit slow first thing in the morning.
    My complaint which they seem not able to solve – my iiPhone Residential number was transferred to NetPhone and all calls are free. Except my calls are still being charged to the iiPhone Residential which doesn’t exist as we cannot use it after the changeover.
    This is really the only problem we have had in over 23 years as an iinet customer. Don’t like writing bad reviews but it’s getting close to one unless they can solve this simple problem.
    Have created 2 tasks to deal with this. I was rung up for the first and thought the problem was solved but come to think of it the person in South Africa did not really understand .the problem nor could I really understand her. Noy her fault.
    Pity iinet don’t have Australians answering queries
