Australian ISP Internode has today cut the price of its flagship Fibre to the Home (FTTH) broadband plan, but all new plans now count both uploads and downloads in monthly data quotas.
The price of Internode's 100GB FTTH plan, which provides a maximum download speed of 100 megabits per second (Mbps), has been cut from $184.95 to $119.95, while the entry-level 10GB plan has been boosted to 15GB with no price increase ($49.95).
Internode has also introduced three new FTTH plans with 200 GB data quotas, ranging in cost from $129.95 to $159.95 depending on speeds. All new Internode FTTH plans now count both downloaded and uploaded data in monthly quotas. In addition to price cuts, Internode has also increased upload speeds on most plans, now ranging from 2Mbps to a maximum of 8Mbps.
"As this technology moves from novelty to normality, market forces are starting to kick in," said Internode product manager Jim Kellett. "Internode is learning how our customers use their FTTH services and what services they most want.
"Fibre is a brave new world for Australia and Internode is delighted to be part of it."
Internode also confirmed existing FTTH plans will be "grandfathered", meaning while the ISP will no longer offer them to new customers, current customers can remain on the old plans if they wish.
