Just this week, I moved house (well, apartment) from the Melbourne CBD to St Kilda. By far the least enjoyable part of the experience was relocating my ADSL2+ connection with Internode, but not because the process was painful — on the contrary, it was the most trouble-free connection I’ve ever organised. No, it signalled my move from the awesome, but retired 150GB Easy Naked S plan to the less generous and more expensive 60GB plan.
So I was extremely pleased to discover earlier this week that Internode has resurrected the 150GB plan… it just didn’t tell a lot of people about it.
While Internode usually sends communiqués when it updates its plans, they tend to fly under the radar — most of the time I only find out via a periodic check of my settings via the ISP’s customer admin page or Whirlpool. This time round, I came across it via the former path while I was tweaking the line profile for my newly-relocated ADSL line.
Called the “Easy Naked 150 Special” or just the “Easy Naked Special”, it’s for intents and purposes identical to the old Easy Naked S plan. The major differences are that NodePhone isn’t included and you must sign up for a 24-month contract. It’s also only available on certain ports — Optus and iiNet customers are currently out of luck.
For users not on a naked connection, you still only have the choice between a 30GB, 60GB, 200GB and 300GB, leaving a noticeable gap for those who consumer over 60GB a month, but can’t justify the outlay for 200GB.
