ISP iiNet says it has connected more than 10,000 customers to fibre to the Home (FTTH) broadband across Australia, surpassing the total number of FTTH customers connected to the NBN.
iiNet’s Chief Executive Officer Michael Malone says that more than 8,000 iiNet Group customers are connected to high-speed FTTH broadband via iiNet’s TransACT and Internode networks and wholesale services, and that a further 2,700 are connected through the NBN.
iiNet calls itself “the leading challenger in Australia’s communications industry” and which is the second largest DSL ISP (after Telstra). Malone, one of the industry’s more tireless self-promoters, said iiNet’s recent acquisitions and growth have positioned the company to be the leader in FTTH broadband in Australia.
“We’re all about upgrading the lives of our customers and giving them access to innovative products backed up by our award-winning customer service. When it comes to FTTH, we’re using every opportunity to connect as many Australians as we can to the best internet around,” he said.
“The number of residential customers connected by the iiNet Group also surpasses the number of Australian homes connected to Fibre by any other provider. As well as delivering super-fast broadband to more people than are connected to FTTH through the NBN, we’re now the largest provider of FTTH services in the country.”
