Internode’s made some pretty radical changes to its broadband lineup today, cutting down its offerings to just four types of plans under the “Easy” moniker. Internode’s claim is that it’s shifted from 78 different broadband plans to a simpler (and thus “easier”) 18 plans.
Easy Broadband remains the flagship product for selling Internode’s own ADSL2+ services, along with Easy Naked (via either Internode/Agile or Optus), and Easy Bundle (via Optus). Customers who are only within reach of Telstra DSLAMs can apply for the Easy Reach product lines, but as has historically been the case with Internode’s Telstra-based products, they’re not the most competitive offerings.
An Easy Broadband customer with $39.95 to spend each month could get a 30GB plan from Internode. An Easy Reach customer would have to spend $49.95 for the entry level plan, and that only comes with 5GB of data allocation.
Along with the Easy Plans, Internode’s also offering two service bundles for any Easy Plan. For $10 per month, you can add a Power Pack which offers a static IP address, free uploads, included subdomain and faster excess speed once shaping takes hold. For $30 per month, business customers get a static IP address, free uploads and a switch to charged excess usage at 0.5c/MB (up to a maximum of $299 per month), included subdomain and priority business support.
If you’re an existing Internode customer worried that your current plan offers better value, there’s no need to worry, as existing plans will be honoured; they simply won’t be offered to new customers any longer. Full details of the 18 Easy plans can be found at Internode’s Web site.
