iiNet IPTV service to launch soon

Australia’s third biggest Broadband Internet Service Provider, iiNet, is certainly going through some arduous times at present, and despite facing a massive lawsuit from leading national and International Movie/TV production companies, they’ve just announced a soon to launch IPTV service.

iiNet’s managing director ‘Michael Malone’ said the company was experiencing rapid growth with their Naked DSL services from disgruntled users who are fed up with paying exorbitant line rental fees. Now with more than 307 DSLAMs across Australia offering broadband speeds fast enough to support IPTV, it’s no wonder that many subscribers are leaving their ISPs in droves for iiNet.

Once iiNet’s Internet Protocol TV services are launched, users can expect content such as the latest TV Shows and Movies on Demand, live and interactive TV, news, weather and a host of other channels and features. This is not to mention the fact that iiNet IPTV will go head-to-head with Channel 7’s Tivo as iiNet’s IPTV service will come with a dual tuner free-to-air personal video recorder which is similar to 7’s set top box.

iiNet Naked DSL Plans – Popularity Soars

Naked DSL Broadband Internet is a rapidly growing broadband alternative as it gives a user the ability to save extra money by ditching the traditional home phone service. It’s popularity is growing so much that it’s caused an unexpected profit for iiNet. Subscribers are now ridding themselves of a Telstra landline in favour of their mobile phone, or for those who used their home phone more frequently, a VoIP (Voice of Internet Protocol) Broadband Phone service.

iiNet’s Managing Director ‘Michael Malone’ recently stated that the company is signing up around 1,000 Naked DSL subscribers per week. He also added that iiNet has been very surprised with the Naked DSL uptake as they thought the new service would only appeal to the tech savvy broadband enthusiast therefor remaining a niche product.

Iinet is claiming Naked DSL subscriber numbers of “over 23,000” customers, from a total customer pool on iiNet DSLAMs of 170,209 customers. So, roughly thirteen percent of iiNet’s customers are now living without a PSTN phone line.

“We initially saw Naked DSL as a very niche product”, he said. “We expected that the tech geek crowd who loves broadband would go for it, along with Generation Y and their mobile phones. Instead, it’s appealed to a much broader audience who don’t want to pay line rentals. They see it as dead money. It’s not so much to do with saving money as it is not wasting it.”

iiNet to acquire Westnet for $81 million

iiNet is on the verge of purchasing neighboring W.A. based Internet Service Provider ‘Westnet’ for $81 million. Australia’s 3rd largest telecommunications company is expected to finalise the deal at the end of this month when it will secure an additional 215,000 active subscribers bringing their total number of active services to in excess of 680,000.

The acquisition is believed to add an extra $135 million per year to iiNet’s annual revenue earnings bringing its total revenue to approximately $375 million p.a.. According to iiNet managing director ‘Michael Malone’, Westnet will become a subsidiary of iiNet and will operate as per usual with the only foreseeable change being Westnet’s current wholesale network supplier.

“Westnet is a well run and growing business that has regularly been spinning off profits. The last thing we want to do is mess it up,”

In a presentation to iiNet shareholders, the ISP said there would be opportunity for both brands to cross-sell each other’s products, allowing Westnet to sell iiNet’s naked DSL products and iiNet to sell Westnet’s satellite services to regional customers.

“Westnet has quite a different market to iiNet. We both compete in Perth, but outside that, iiNet is primarily a metro player and Westnet is primarily a regional player. Westnet also has an incredible dealer network that is loyal to Westnet. I’m very reluctant to consider changing that. And of course there is a very competent management and staff team over at Westnet too,”


Fixed lines drop Naked DSL up

In a recently released report from the ACMA, figures are suggesting that interest in fixed telephone line services are dropping which could indicate that the demand for Naked DSL services are on the up.

Naked DSL Broadband services includes line rental fees. Subscribers are now able to purchase Naked DSL Plans without the need of a regular PSTN telephone line service and alternatively use a VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) communication service through their broadband connection at a far cheaper price.

The ACMA report shows that around 25% of households would contemplate replacing their fixed line phone service with an alternative form of communication (such as VoIP or mobile phone), however it appears that lack of VoIP knowledge and the high costs of mobile calls are a deterrent toward switching. With the emergence of Naked ADSL services steadily becoming popular, along with VoIP awareness, it appears that the Naked DSL ascension will continue until mobile phone call rates drop significantly.

Naked DSL Broadband Bundles

Sick of paying for a residential phone line connection that you don’t even use? Well we’ve got good news for you. Many Australian Broadband Providers recognize your dilemma and are currently preparing to launch revamped Broadband Plans that include landline rental.

Typical Home Phone line rental charges are usually around $20-$30 per month. However by including line rental within the upcoming revamped Broadband plans, prices may only rise by as little as $5 per month. Not bad huh? This should suit those who use Mobile phones as their principle method of telecommunication along with those who are seeking to make use of VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) services.

So when did you last use your home phone line, how much do you use it and how much are you paying for your monthly bill? Why pay for phone line rental and calls when you can use a VoIP Broadband Telephone service (including calls) for a fraction of the price. Many VoIP Providers offer bundles and packages that incorporate all phone/call charges in one monthly bill.

For example. It’s not uncommon for a VoIP provider to offer a VoIP service that includes a monthly access fee, free local calls, free national calls and very cheap Mobile and International call rates for as little as $10-15per month. Sounds crazy doesn’t it? Well it’s true!  Add a VoIP Bundle to your monthly Broadband Internet bill and it’s probably safe to say that many Australians will come in under the $100 per month mark.

entry level 4GB plan will cost $44.95, around $5 more than the ISP’s equivalent regular ADSL plans.

because Telstra owns the copper infrastructure and wholesales it to its competitors, the telco could previously set prices that were so high they made residential naked DSL services unviable. But a decision by the competition regulator late last year meant Telstra was forced into lowering its access prices.

“Consumers will save money doing this but they won’t save an amount of money equivalent to 100 per cent of their line rental,” said Internode CEO Simon Hackett

AAPT to provide ‘Naked DSL’ by Xmas

With the cost of ‘Home Phone’ rentals impeding monthly Broadband DSL (Digital Subscriber Line) fees, companies such as AAPT are launching ‘naked DSL’ products in a bid to combat excessive Broadband charges. Doing away with $30+ line rental, which in some instances is an unwanted service, will have many DSL Broadband subscribers welcoming the change. 

“We’re looking at effectively a primary line replacement product … in my place in Sydney, I don’t have a fixed line nor do I want one — not at AU$30 month,” he told delegates.
