IPSTAR releases new ‘unmetered’ plans for rural, remote NBN Sky Muster service users Featured


Internet service provider IPSTAR Broadband has announced new plans for its rural and remote customers using the NBN satellite Sky Muster Plus service, giving increased unmetered usage of the service for web browsing, reading,sending emails, and scrolling through social media.

The Australian operated Thai-owned IPSTAR says the changes - which came into effect at the start of April - mean that the typical household will have 70% of all internet usage unmetered compared with 30% previously, with the only metered services being video streaming and activities on Virtual Private Networks (VPNs).

The two new plans IPSTAR Broadband is offering are priced at $60 per month for 50 GB or $110 per month for 150 GB.

IPSTAR Broadband Managing Director, Shannon Fisher, said the new offering would ensure regional, rural and remote Australians “did not miss out”.

“We know how important it is for our regional, rural and remote customers to stay connected,” Fisher said.

“Many of our customers run their businesses from home and their children attend virtual classrooms.They can now stream movies, educate their children and run their businesses without worrying about running out of data.

“IPSTAR always listens to its customers and we believe these new plans will offer the flexibility they have been asking for at the right.”

Fisher said many Australians living outside metropolitan areas had endured “years of crippling drought, followed by some of the worst bushfires in history, and were now staring down the threat of the COVID-19 pandemic”.

“IPSTAR knows first-hand the challenges Australians living in the bush face and how crucial it is for them to be able to connect with friends, family and the world.

“Now more than ever, it is important that our customers can access as much information as possible without using all their data,” he said.

“IPSTAR Broadband continues to work with the NBN to improve connectivity across Australia and ensure customers receive the best possible internet service.”
