iiNet introduces commercial FTTH packages in Victorian suburb

28 Oct 2009

Australian broadband provider iiNet has launched its first commercial fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) services, according to iTWire. The operator has opened up a range of package options via FTTH infrastructure that has been rolled out by Opticomm at Alamanda Estate at Point Cook in Victoria; the fibre network is operated on an open-access basis by Opticomm, and iiNet rival Internode is already offering fibre-based services at that location. Primus Telecom is expected to enter the fray with its own commercial offerings at the estate in the first quarter of 2010. iiNet will offer services starting at AUD49.95 (USD45.81) for a 25Mbps downlink and 1Mbps uplink connection, with a 5GB monthly data usage limit. The most expensive service available will offer download and upload speeds of 100Mbps and 5Mbps respectively, with a 90GB monthly usage limit, and will cost AUD139.95.
