Trick that old phone line and treat yourself to Naked DSL


Naked DSL is no longer sold as of 23 September 2020.

So recently you may have heard a whisper about our new Naked DSL plans. It’s subtle, but the message has made a quiet appearance on TV, social media, in the cinema, on the side of buses… Okay I admit it: We’ve been a little bit excited about it!

But with all the great benefits of Naked DSL, can you really blame us? Not only that, but our new plans are our best value yet. You’ll get a whole terabyte of data and local and standard national calls included when you sign up for our $79.99 per month plan!

What are those benefits you may ask? Well, we’ve done the research to put together a list of the best benefits to switching to Naked DSL. So avoid the tricks of phone line rental and treat yourself to Naked DSL this Halloween.

No Nasty Surprises

House-sharing isn’t always the most pleasant experience, but for some of us, it’s the only option we can afford. There are niggling little annoyances like someone’s dirty cereal bowl being left out to attract ants, but there are bigger problems which can cause huge tension in a rental: like someone racking up an extortionate phone bill.

I understand there are people, especially in a multicultural nation like Australia, who need to make a lot of international calls. But we all know those meagre minutes can add up to a whopping great bill. By going Naked, you will use Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP), which allows you to make calls through your broadband connection. This method of calling internationally can be cheaper than regular landline calls.

Additionally, if you choose iiNet as your Naked supplier, you can opt for plans which include local and standard national calls. So even if your housemates are phone hogs, you can relax with the peace of mind that it’s not going to hurt your wallet.

Enjoying dinner in peace

You’ve just sat down around the table with your family to a hot home-cooked meal. Everyone settles in and gets comfortable and the friendly conversation starts. You raise your fork, about to bite into that first mouth-watering morsel, when suddenly: Brriiinnng! That shrill noise rips through the conversation, and everyone exchanges looks, trying to decide which person will sacrifice their lovely warm dinner to answer the phone.

Telemarketing may be a legitimate business strategy for some companies, but for most of us, it’s just an annoyance: no, I do not want to buy a fridge and washer over the phone at 7pm at night! The good news is you can make it difficult for these pesky people to find you by ditching your landline for a VoIP service. Whether you have a brand new number or you transfer your landline number to VoIP, the benefit is that all VoIP numbers are considered private, so they aren’t listed in public directories like the White Pages.

There’s always a possibility that one or two calls will slip through the cracks, but by going off the radar of the public switch, you can make a big difference in your telemarketer troubles.

Get rid of old fashioned phone line rental

Naked frees you from the obligation to pay phone line rental for a phone number you may not necessarily use. If you’re anything like me, you make and receive calls via mobile and the only people who call your “home phone” are the tedious telemarketers mentioned above! Our Naked plans include a VoIP Netphone service that you can make use of exactly when you need it, with options available for happy chatters who want to have their calls included. So save yourself those monthly line rental fees and put that money to a better use: treat yourself!

  1. Lisa says:

    I am interested in if there is a limitless data plan for internet only.


  2. Jason says:

    Well if I wasn’t locked in for 24 months I’d be keen but with NBN supposedly hitting my area mid 2016 I don’t think I want to be locked in. Also at a guess no free zone either?

  3. I’ve used iinet for more than 18yrs. I have a $79 plan and threw my landline phone away 2 or 3 years ago and now only use a mobile. This isn’t a deal thats worth anything to me. Remove the landline cost from my plan and I’d consider it. That is give me the deal at $50. I’d also need to be sure I had NO (and I mean NO) downtime in setting it up.

    Its about time iinet rewarded loyalty in some way.




    Great plan but needs a minimum mobile phone plan included to make it a complete setup.

  5. Mike says:

    Can you tell me how this plan is better than the unlimited ADSL plan offered by TPG at $20 less a month than this offering by iinet.

  6. Andy Smyth says:

    We are currently with iinet. Can I change plans and go on this Naked Plan please?

      Put your address in the checker here and see what is available to your house.

  7. Lorene R says:

    Can you keep your same telephone number and switch to naked DSL?

    • Amy Pearce says:

      If your line is eligible for Naked DSL, yes we can transfer over your Landline number to VoIP.

      Give us a call for more info – 13 19 17

      – Amy

  8. Rob Phillips says:

    I don’t quite understand how this works… Do I:
    – Keep the same phone line but only use it for ADSL?
    – relinquish my analog phone and not have to pay line rental?
    – Need new equipment to take VOIP calls? Is this part of the bundle?

    Can I retain my existing number and ‘point’ the VOIP service to it?

    Will the Naked service be compatible with the NBN?

    • Amy Pearce says:

      Hi Rob,

      Naked DSL is the very same connection you have now, with the phone line frequency removed.
      Once your phone line capability is removed from the line, we port your home phone number to the VoIP service and you can start to make calls over the internet.
      You will need to plug your phone into your modem rather than the wall socket – sales can confirm if your current modem is capable – 131917.

      NBN does not run on the same network – when it is available in your area, it’ll be a new connection separate to this.

      – Amy

    I don’t want to pay for 1000gb when I never use more than 50
    I want naked, how about a lower plan.

  10. Harry says:

    I have been thinking of upgrading, but being on an old age pension, price is everything.
    Your opposition DoDo is offering unlimited downloads for around $30 a month.Perhaps you should look at your loyal cumstomers and see what you can do for them. I once received 2 lots of 100GB extra on my plan free, but when I reduced my payment went back to a smaller amount and lost all that free stuff.
    I look forward to your comment and suggestions.

  11. Russell Simpson says:

    No point in being interested if you live outside the ‘purple circles’ (Capital Cities)
    Still waiting for iInet/Westnet to introduce 4G mobile service in Augusta.

  12. Jay says:

    Do you still have to go for weeks without an internet connection in order to change over? Thats the main reason we have not done it before!

  13. David says:

    When I signed up I was told I need to have a land line…now I don’t are you going to release me from that part of the contact?

    • Amy Pearce says:

      Hey David,

      Not all houses can get Naked DSL.
      Some lines require a land line for the internet to piggy back off.
      Sales can assist further in explaining what is available – 13 19 17

      – Amy

  14. Corey says:

    Is this available for off net customers? I am currently on home 2 bundle as it’s the most I can afford but the 100 gigabyte cap is pitiful and I pay for a home phone that is never used.

    • Amy Pearce says:

      Hi Corey,
      Naked DSL is unfortunately not available on Off-Net as we do not own the lines.
      – Amy

  15. Juan says:

    Would be interested if Mobile was included.

  16. Nazif says:

    im with iinet for very long time and i get 600 gb so how about you give me 1000 gb as in this plan that would make it fair

  17. Joseph says:

    My phone line rental + iiNet ADSL2 together cost me $70/month. Apart from 1 TB data download, what is the point to change to Naked DSL without any cost incentive if I still pay the same amount to pay?

    I better keep the phone line to Telstra and have the option to choose between the deals from different ISP when NBN is available in my area.

    • Christian Polson-Brown says:

      Hi Joseph,

      We consider that 1000GB quota a pretty juicy incentive! :) If you aren’t a heavy user in need of more data, the Naked 2 Bundle also comes with all local and national calls included on a VoIP phone for no extra charge.
      – Christian

  18. Sally says:

    I spend a max of around $65 to $70 per month, inc all internet usage and phone calls and line rental…if you were to equal this cost, I might think about it, but I am really waiting for the NBN to come my way

  19. Amy seems keen to respond to anything that might result in a sale but remain silent on other questions. Why is that?

  20. Anonymous says:

    You haven’t defined what is meant by the phrase “standard local & national calls”. What is included in this phrase?

    • Christian Polson-Brown says:

      “Standard local and & national calls” cover calls to landlines anywhere within Australia. This does not include 13/1300 numbers.

  21. Ron Marlborough says:

    I have been with Iinet forever. I currently have;
    1. A landline, not much used except for Foxtel,
    2. 2 mobile phones. 1 and 2 cost about $200 per month, using a Telstra plan.
    3. Internet with Iinet, costing $150 per quarter.

    How will this deal help me?

    • Christian Polson-Brown says:

      Hi Ron,

      It might be good to speak with our support team (13 22 58) about how the new Naked Bundle could benefit you. They will access to your account, can review your current plan and products and go over some options. One initial benefit would be that the Naked plans offer 1000GB of data for a lower cost than the comparable ADSL plan.

  22. Hez says:

    Will I be able to make phone calls with a Naked DSL line, compared to a ‘regular’ phone line, during a power (or modem) failure? At the moment, if the lights go out, we can use a landline while power is being restored.
    On another note: We would like to bundle our phone with iiNet, but concerned re iiNet’s recent sale to TPG. We’ve been with iiNet for years and happy with service. We are not keen to lock into a long contract with iiNet if any of the service deteriorates.
    Can iiNet offer any assurances towards that? We are at the crossroads and are currently considering bundling phone & ISP with iiNet. There are cheaper deals, but we’d stay (and bundle) with iiNet if that meant continued good service.
    We would really appreciate a reply to these questions. Thanks in advance.

    • Brianna Burgess says:

      Our Naked DSL plans include a Netphone service, Hez. Netphone’s use VoIP technology to allow you to make and receive calls via your Naked DSL service. Consequently it does require both an active internet connection and power supply to function. For more information on bundling your Home Phone service, give us a buzz (13 22 58) and a Customer Service Representative can assist in finding a bundle that suits your needs.

  23. Steven says:

    Currently on naked Home 1, can’t change plan as the vintage toolbox errors out.

    • Brianna Burgess says:

      Thanks for the heads up Steven, we’ll take a look at this now!
      In the meantime, give our Support (13 22 58) team a buzz and a Customer Service Representative will be able to assist with the plan change.

  24. Gillian waye says:

    I agree with Neil I’ve also been with ii net for many years and pay $60 a month take off the phone line rental and I would switch over

  25. David says:

    I worked for an international charity in Nepal, A man came and installed an antenna and i had high speed internet the same day for $30 a month, connecting through satellite.
    I got transferred to Burma, the most under developed country in Asia, I was setting up a preschool, two men came installed an antenna then ran wires through the roof and down the walls and we had high speed internet in every room the same day, the children were watching songs and teaching from around the world. Then I retired to Launceston Australia, no home phone, no internet for months and years. Then I got transferred to a Philippine slum, with poverty all around terrible conditions, I had an antenna made in China $100 and a man installed it in one day and I had high speed internet for $30 AUD a month, this is through a satellite. Then I can back to Riverside Launceston, a nice house, but no home phone, no internet no NBN no copper wire. It is funny that less educated men in Burma can have internet going in one day. But in Launceston Australia months years go by and they can not even tell you a date. ????? what is happening?????
