    Just a heads up, you might want to fix up the title 😁

      What's wrong with 10/40? At least it's not false advertising.

      •  

        Oh sorry, thought it was supposed to be 100/40.
        My mistake

        Lol fixed

      •  

        What? Of course it's false advertising. I can't stand these new-fangled connections and their seamless loading times. I want to watch my 240p YouTube videos with 30s buffering times just like the good old days! I nearly signed up to this promo until I saw it was actually 100mbit :(

    Im on TPG FTTB can I sign up to this one and use the "ULTRA3" code?

    •  

      Just check the address, it will tell you. If it says yes you can! For me redirects me to nbn :(

    •  

      Would you save $180 + free modem , but tied to 24months contract ?

      Or, save $80 + free modem, no contract

      That's if you can time it perfectly with TPG 30days cancellation notice

  •  

    I heard sometime ago NBN wants more people use 100/40 will drop the price but not happening.

    •  

      well, they removed 12/1 package , forcing ppl to sub higher speed package at higher price

        12/1Mbps speed tier is still available from NBNCo.

        Some RSPs have chosen not to offer the speed tier in the same way NBNCo has a 1Gbps wholesale plan but almost all RSPs are not offering faster than 100Mbps.

        Sad to think that if Labor hadn't designed the NBN pricing with speed tiers all fixed connections would be FTTP & 1Gbps.

          Looks like you are full of Typos today.
          It’s the Liberals and not the Labor screwed up our NBN.

          •  

            @Jacos: If you read the NBNCo Corporate Plans that Labor published while in government you will most likely find it doesn't contain what you expect. A couple of key points from Labor's NBNCo Corporate Plan:

            Labor expected close to 50% to connect to FTTP at 12Mbps and <1% to connect at 1Gbps in 2026. Reality is that in the last period the network was all FTTP, 80% were connected at 25Mbps or slower.
            Labor priced CVC (data) at $20/Mbps and expected it to be the significant part of revenue growth. *Reality is that Liberals cut the price of CVC to $8/Mbps and started bundling CVC with 50Mbps & 100Mbps plans.

            Please don't take my word for it. Read the NBNCo Corporate Plans and ACCC NBN Wholesale Market Indicators report, noting that the jumps to higher speed occur after LNP price cuts.

            I don't support FTTN but when less than 4% are impacted by the decision and those impacted are largely rich and have the option of technology transfer for less than cost of stamp duty on moving house, it is not an unreasonable decision for the majority.

          •  

            @Jacos: You are correct.

            matthew42 has been harping along the same lines for over 5 years, both here, on Whirlpool, and just about any other tech forum that would listen to him.

            He got blown out of the water on Whirlpool on this issue, and showed his true political colours (deep blue) on a number of other matters.

    •  

      This service doesn't use the NBN though.

    •  

      Yeah 12/1 is not feasible to sell so if everybody goes to the higher tiers preferably 100/40 I think it becomes cheaper overall or something I forgot the reasoning or mathematics but yeah just like Bill Gates said one time.. Higher is Better and it is true here for NBN.

      But just remember we could all have 1000/1000 connections right now aka gigabit internet if not for a fantastic leaders deciding the great decisions that they do up at the top.

      ONE GIGABIT… drool on that that is a lot of ozbargain pages.

  •  

    Have their ultra at work, get around 270/50 during the day, pretty impressive. Not sure how their plans work speed wise though. Doesn't seem to specify 100/40

    •  

      Updated description. It says guaranteed 90mbps evening speed so I think it is 100/40

      •  

        All good, just got one pop up on FB, mines Ultra Cable typical evening speeds of 200. Must be geolocated ads

        •  

          Their ultra cable is awesome, I get over 500mbps down and it's only $40/mth for the first 12 months.

    They're under TPG. Same company, same FTTB network.

    Reckon giving a call to TPG to match this offer?

      Why not?

      •  

        currently FTTP TPG and so iiNet says not able to use this plan. Oh well great offer this is

    • +1 vote

      This is the exact offer from TPG. iiNet is owned by TPG. I've had TPG FTTB at my apartment in Perth for the last 12months. I vary rarely go below 90Mbs Download and usually pull around 30Mbs upload.

      •  

        Wait I am on TPG so I should call them and tell them to switch me to this plan anybody else tried?

        I am paying $79.99/month for 50/20 FTTN Unlimited and Unlimited Local Calls Home Phone Plan. ($69.99 for the internet and $10.00 for the Home Phone)

        That is like two pork rolls a month if I save $10/month.

        lol.

        I don't get much more than 50mbps although there was a time where it was getting near 80mbps but then it stabilized after a few weeks to around 60mbps so I just settled on 50/20 instead of 100/40.

        •  

          yeah FTTN sucks, really depends on the distance of your copper wire. i have 1.3km distance, only getting 32/17, but hey way better than 5/0.8 with 200GB data few month ago.

          • +1 vote

            @Hornpub: Nice glad to hear you have gotten an upgrade.

            Yeah around 5 mbps and you can feel it especially when watching Youtube.. worse if you have a family or lots of flat mates.

      •  

        Cheers will do!

  •  

    Quite an amazing offer. I don’t know how they’re making money at this price for 100/40.

    • +3 votes

      Because they don't have to pay NBNco wholesale.

      •  

        You’re correct, but I still can’t get over how cheap it is. If this was South Korea I’d understand. This deal gets the thumbs up from me, Kudos to them.

        •  

          I'm with an ISP that has FTTB to my apartment building(spirit telecom) and I've been paying $67 a month for 100/100 unlimited downloads/uploads for about a year now. Not NBN, so they don't have to pay NBN anything, and speed at peak times is always close to 100/100. Have been very happy with them, am so glad I don't have anything to do with NBN

          They also offer 200/200 and 400/400 but I don't need that much speed right now, but good to know its available if required.

          TPG pulled their own fiber network to high density apartments building within CBD & inner cities.

          Most units (hundreds in 1 single building) went for TPG/iinet FTTB, coz it's cheaper & faster than NBN.

          They only need to pull 1 cable to MDF room of the building.

          Cheap? I'm currently paying $39.99/mth for this: https://www.speedtest.net/result/8013524715

    How is fttb different to fttp? Sorry if this seems like a dumb question

    •  

      Sorry, think I've solved it. Fttb is internode/tpg network, fttp is nbn?

      •  

        Fibre to building vs Fibre to the premise
        House vs unit complex, for simplicity.

      • +2 votes

        FTTB = fiber to the building (MDF room) ; the rest is up to the building spec whether originally constructed with fiber to the unit or copper lines (but won't matter at 100Mbps due to short distance)

        FTTP = fiber to the premise ; aka fiber into your home (all fiber)

        TPG pulled their own fiber network to high density apartments building within CBD & inner cities, and call it TPG FTTB.

        NBN FTTB also same concept but limited by your ISP CVC quota.

  •  

    My FTTB TPG works great

  •  

    I think the title should be corrected to say "Selected Suburbs" instead of just FTTB.

    iiNet does not offer this plan wherever NBN FTTB is offered. This plan is offered where they have their own or TPG fibre which is a limited number of areas.

        I was on the phone this morning to Aussie broadband (I highly recommend them after using them at my current place in north bondi (HFC PING ms 13 DOWNLOAD Mbps 84.41 UPLOAD Mbps 37.68))
        plan was to use them. but with no contract options I'm willing to give these guys a go.

  •  

    So just to confirm FTTN/FTTB are the same?

    •  

      Same connection technology. FTTB's node lives in the comms/utilities room in the building, so you won't have premises very far away from the node like you will on some FTTN installations.

  • +1 vote

    For anyone interested… this is TPG FTTB (Which is the same as this iiNet one)

    Test done Saturday 7.30pm - https://www.speedtest.net/result/8508802098.png

    I never get any slow downs or any congestion in peak hours.

  •  

    Is the upload capped at 20Mbps vs 40Mbps from TPG ?

    EDIT: Turns out TPG also dropped the upload cap to 20Mbps

  •  

    seems legit …

  •  

    Seems to be only lock in for 6 months and you get the Modem free and 3 months free
