Yesterday, we reported news about Internode's naked DSL service
. Today, we can confirm that Internode will offer an entry-level Naked ADSL2+ plan at $59.95, with a 5GB monthly download limit, bundled with a VOIP service known as 'NodePhone1', which provides untimed 18-cent national calls with a $149 setup cost.
Internode's naked ADSL2+ service will be available from 350 exchanges nationally, an increase from the 100 exchanges Internode had been previously been operating on. It is interesting to note that Internode becomes the fifth ISP to officially offer naked DSL services on the market.
Internode's NodePhone product manager Jim Kellett said "Internode's Naked ADSL2+ service gives customers access to high-speed broadband and a low-cost phone service, without a high monthly price tag".
The new naked plans will initially only be available for new connections, with Internode arguing the process is "quicker and cleaner" than converting an existing line. Internode will allow conversion of existing voice lines to naked ADSL2+ mode later this year.
Today’s announcement is just the start of Internode’s Naked ADSL2+ program. Over the course of this year, Internode is going to be getting into the thick of things with a naked ADSL2+ service that features high speed upstream 'Annex M' and long range 'Annex L' services.
Mr. Kellett added that "Internode intends to launch additional innovative services during the course of this year, so this area will mature very quickly."
Full details of service availability and plan costs will be published on the Internode website
