iiNet is one of Australia’s more popular broadband providers, as they provide flexibility and customization to make sure customers get the services that fit their needs and lifestyle. Discover more about iiNet and all of Australia's broadband and telecom providers, by reading more below.

Overview of iiNet

iiNet, founded in a suburban garage in 1993 by Michael Malone and Michael O’Reilly, is a subsidiary of TPG Telecom. iiNet provides broadband, phone, and television services to its customers across Australia and the parent company for subsidiaries such as Internode, TransACT, and NetSpace.

In 2000, iiNet became the first company to offer ADSL technology and today still provides ADSL to those who don’t yet have NBN technology to their homes and businesses through its ADSL infrastructure and through reselling Telstra ADSL services.

Today, iiNet owns a sizeable market share of the Australian broadband retail market, thanks in part to it’s flexible and customizable plans, and Liimitless data and talk options.

iiNet network coverage

iiNet is a Mobile Virtual Network Operator (MVNO) which operates under the Optus Network. With the majority of Optus’ coverage focused on the major cities of Adelaide, up to Brisbane, as well as Tasmania and around Perth, 98.5% of the Australian population has access to the mobile network under iiNet.

Optus predicts the expansion of their 4G coverage, particularly outdoor coverage, within the next six months. The majority of this expansion will be in Western Australia outside of Perth, as well as various pockets of expansion in South Australian, New South Wales, and Queensland.
