    Have had iiNet nbn Satellite for quite some time. Heavy rain, it will drop out. Ping latency is 600+ms which doesn’t auger well for VoIP. Send an email and you have to sit and make sure they all go. Cannot send and walk away as there is constant problems with connecting to SMTP server. In the early days, would do the emails in the morning and come in later in the day to find some or all had not gone. Quite embarrassing at times! Tried all setting on iiNet web site but to no avail. Same problem over several computers and when using mobile phone via WiFi. iiNet don’t respond to emails concerning the issue. Maybe they don’t get there!!???

      Hi Phil,

      That is not the experience you should have on Satellite. Yes, the service will be affected by weather (it is trying to send and receive a signal from space!) but the delays with e-mail aren’t acceptable. This would suggest there is a possible speed issue, so you’re always welcome to take a look at:

      Pending that, a call to Support on 13 22 58 may be required. At worst, we can always lodge a fault with NBN on your behalf.

  2. Pete Dunne says:

    Is iinet providing NBN over satellite? If so what are the speed and costs involved. We have NBN in the area but it can’t reconnected because there is no available tap of the Foxtel cable. We still have the satellite dish and the wiring from out previous Foxtel connection.

    • Leo Yarnold says:

      Hi Peter,

      We do offer NBN Sky Muster satellite connections, in areas where it is available. The connection uses specific hardware so you aren’t able to recycle your Foxtel dish. As you mentioned that there is a possible issue in your area with the cabling in your area, you may be able to use a different connection type instead. Have a chat to our Sales team on 13 19 17 – they’ll run some checks based on your address and can advise on what specific type is available to you.

  3. Kay Deaves says:

    I have heard some very negative reports on NBN so I am not sure I want it, particularly if it will be connected to the Telstra box down near the road. It is not reliable, especially in wet weather.

  4. could you please let me know how am I situated with the introduction of NBN ?
    I am quite happy at the moment and my reception is OK

  5. Please advise when NBN will be operative in Kingsley Western Australia 6026.
    Each time I enquire, I have been given a different date.
    The last being the end of October 2017.
    I think I have registed with you, but I do not know what I need to do now?

  6. Kaye Wheeler says:

    I received an email on 16 October that gave information about an upgrade of data coming in November. It said I would be notified when it happened. I haven’t received notification. Am I to guess that the info in this email is what that was referring to. I can now receive 60Gb at no extra cost? Because I have a ‘no lock in contract’ deal, will this increase in data allowance cause a price rise in the future? I am very satisfied with the cost and service – SO much better than the mobile broadband I had to use before.

  7. Pattie Brown says:

    I am happy with my iiNet connection yes it does drop out in storms but if there is a bad electrical strom I turn it off and I have received my upgrade thank you

  8. Kate Anderson says:

    When will NBN be in my area I’m told very soon. I hear that in my area the NBN is disasterous. I do not want it at all is there any other way to have the internet but not the NBN. If this is the only solution I shall disconnect for good. I also do not wish to be on any plan either.

    • Leo Yarnold says:

      Hi Kate,

      We understand your hesitancy here, though with all the negative press surrounding the NBN, however we are staunch supporters of it.

      To answer your question, this does depend on what connection types are available in your area. For customers where we have our own networks (iiNet Cable and VDSL2), these customers can stay where they are and they don’t have to move. Customers on ADSL or Naked DSL connections, or other types, will have to move to the NBN, so its best to investigate your options now, so that you are prepared.
      Our Sales team can guide you through the options, so feel free to give them a call on 13 19 17.

  9. Kerry says:

    I’m interested in upgrading to satellite but have noticed that iinet largest plan is small compared with plans from other providers. One, for example offers 100GB peak / 200GB off peak. Will iinet be offering a similar plan in the near future?

    • Leo Yarnold says:

      Hi Kerry,

      Thanks for the question!

      NBN Sky Muster Satellite is an interesting case, as data limits have been set by NBN in order to control the utilization of the network and ensure a high standard of service. Some providers will offer more data than others but once an end user reaches their data limit, NBN will shape the connection in order to maintain the level of service.

      We’ve built our plans with these guidelines in mind, so once NBN decide to increase the data limits providers have access to, we’ll be able to examine this and then go further.

  10. Vinit Jhavar says:

    I have both types of NBN services i.e. through wire to node and through satellite. Both the modems are TG-789 and have similar settings. From wire to node I am able to connect my computer through VPN however from satellite I cannot which I am unable to understand. Please advise how to connect VPN through satellite.

    • Brianna Burgess says:

      Difficult to say, Vinit. We’d encourage raising it with the VPN provider so they can determine if there are any compatibility issues.
