MyNetFone - the quiet one terabyte pioneer

By

While iiNet, iPrimus, TPG, Spin and Internode in quick succession have received wide publicity for their new 1TB broadband offerings, VoIP service provider and ISP MyNetFone (ASS: MNF) says it has been offering 1TB for several months.

The MyNetFone service is available only as Naked DSL and comes bundled with two MyNetFone VoIP lines for $99.95 per month. It is available from MyNetFone via Optus enabled exchanges. Customers can either pay a $199 setup fee for a contract-free service or $199, or $49 on 12 and 24 month contracts respectively.

MyNetFone director, Rene Sugo, told iTWire the service had been on offer for about four months. Although take up remained small. "Our most popular plan is our $49 100GB offering. $50 per month is definitely the sweet spot," he said.

However he added, "We had a flurry of enquiries when iiNet bought AAPT and announced they were going to drop AAPT's unlimited plan."

The iiNet and iPrimus plans split the 1TB quota between peak and off-peak times and Internode has no peak/off peak discrimination. MyNetFone tops both these in that the 1TB can be used at anytime and there is no limit at off-peak times (midnight to 10.am)

Also where the other three count both upload and download towards the quota, MyNetFone counts only downloads. The TPG 1TB plan also costs $99 per month but is not available unbundled.

Internode's 1TB offering costs $179.95 in a naked version unbundled. The bundled spectrum shared version is only $149.95 but users must pay another $34.95 for the bundled PSTN phone service. Also, while lower quota Internode services are available from Optus DSLAMs, its 600GB and 1TB offering are available only from its own DSLAMs.
