Australia - First Terabyte plan on the NBN has been announced

[iinet] iiNet has announced Australia’s first terabyte plan on the National Broadband Network, with a massive boost to speed and quota on all of its NBN fibre plans.
Managing Director, Michael Malone said iiNet wanted to give Australia a taste of what the National Broadband Band can deliver, for the same price they'd usually pay for ADSL2+.
“The main advantage of the NBN is speed. You don’t know what it’s like until you actually use a reliable 100M fibre connection in the home. And these speeds are seriously awesome!” said Mr Malone.

“You could download an album from iTunes in under 15 seconds, or grab a whole movie in a little under seven minutes, so we’re also ramping up the amount of data included to make sure customers can really use it.

“The NBN is essential infrastructure that will help us keep up with the rest of the world. We’re really pushing copper to its limits with new applications like IPTV, but it won’t be able to deliver the next generation of applications.

“We’re excited to be part of the initial rollout of the NBN in Tasmania and look forward to connecting more Australian households in coming years,” Malone added.
Mr Malone said the updated fibre plans would be available to new customers from 1 September 2010, with the increased 100mbps download speeds offered free of charge until 30 June 2011.
