Not all NBN services will come from a cable; in the more remote parts of Australia you’ll be getting the NBN from the sky. iiNet’s announced pricing for its satellite NBN services, due to launch later this month.
Satellite services can’t deliver the same kinds of speeds as optical fibre, so the iiNet plan tops out at 6Mbps download and 1Mbps upload with a download quota of 20GB. That plan will cost you $49.95/month standalone or $39.95 a month when bundled with an iiNet phone plan.
When compared against iiNet’s existing NBN plans, the other big change aside from speed is the quota; $49.95 on a standard iiNet plan would get you 40GB total in peak/offpeak data. [iiNet]
