How to pick the right broadband plan for your business

An internet connection is vital for a modern business: whether it’s the backbone of your daily operations or a means for customers to learn about your services and make orders, you need an internet service that meets your needs.

iiNet has a wide range of broadband products suitable for business applications, but that’s not all. The iiNet Business team pride themselves on being able to tailor a full solution of broadband, phone, cloud, web services and more to create the perfect fit for any business.

We caught up with some friendly reps from our Business Sales teams to find out which broadband products are better suited to different businesses.

Affordable business broadband on the NBN™

Unlike a residential NBN™ service, a Business NBN™ plan includes a Static IPv4 address for business networking, as well as access to priority business support from our award-winning iiNet Business team. An independent survey has named iiNet as having the most satisfied small business broadband customers in Australia for six years running!

  • Affordable plans with widespread availability
  • Speed option to suit different download & upload requirements
  • Unlimited data options and flexible contracts
  • A great match for iiNet BizPhone

One thing that sets NBN™ broadband apart from its predecessors is its speed options. iiNet offers two choices for Business NBN™ plans:

  • NBN50 (Standard Plus *) – A handy speed option to keep everyday business operations running smoothly. Take care of emails, file sharing and VoIP phone services across multiple connections on a great-value plan.
  • NBN100 (Premium*) – If your daily operations are more demanding in terms of downloads and uploads, then this premium option is for you. This speed option can comfortable support more simultaneous connections, as well as providing support for video conferencing and basic cloud services.

Thanks to our flexible broadband contracts, you’re free to upgrade or downgrade your broadband plan whenever you need to. That means that if your business changes further down the track, you can change your broadband plan to follow suit.

Broadband options for when the NBN™ isn’t available

As the National Broadband Network rollout continues, your business premises may not be able to connect to the NBN™ just yet. If that’s the case, never fear: iiNet have a range of alternative plans that can deliver a quality business connection while you wait for the next generation of broadband infrastructure to come to your door. In some areas, you may not even need to upgrade at all! Our iiNet Business Cable network in Mildura, Geelong and Ballarat is already delivering future-ready broadband with an impressive 200Mbps Typical Business Hours download speed!^

  • Easy upgrade to the NBN™ when the time comes
  • Unlimited data options and flexible contracts
  • Supports iiNet BizPhone

The ultimate broadband solution for heavy traffic and cloud services

When your business needs more download and upload capacity than available NBN™ options can provide, that’s when it time to consider premium alternatives such as iiNet Business Fibre. Our Fibre400 and Fibre1000 plans deliver an enterprise-grade connection with 400Mbps or 1000Mbps of Symmetrical Bandwidth, which means that your uploads can perform just as well as your downloads.

  • Available in select buildings nationwide
  • 400Mbps or 1000Mbps Symmetrical Bandwidth options
  • Unlimited data options and flexible contracts
  • 99.95% Service Level Agreement for peace of mind
  • Perfect for iiNet BizPhone and cloud services

You don’t need to be a massive company to benefit from a Business Fibre connection – small businesses with data-intensive applications such as graphic design and digital marketing agencies will thrive with a high bandwidth internet connection. Less time spent waiting on large file transfers means more time spent on the rest of the business.

Business Fibre is also the ideal connection type for businesses who want to optimise their operations with cloud services and other products, such as a corporate-grade VPN for secure, remote connections between sites. By enabling access to remote working, cloud services and hosted storage etc., businesses can reduce costs for on-site hardware and work more efficiently. In addition to your broadband needs, the iiNet Business team can also set you up with a range of great cloud and hosting services – just give us a call today.

    For many households, the discussions unfortunately just go round in circles. I have NBN50 but get a constant (cable) 22 download and 6 upload (!) day or night no variation and wireless is (of course) less. Best channel selection too. Problem is that Isaacs ACT is FTTN with few nodes and still mixed users. Distance of most houses from the node is far too far. Endless promises of FTTC but little action. I want to stay with cable but quoted (probably software voodoo) speeds and enthusiastic neighbours keep challenging. Is there hope?? (Of course there is, hope springs eternal in the human breast….)
