TPG Telecom-owned ISP iiNet has launched a plan to provide a symmetrical gigabit fibre connection for businesses at a monthly cost of $878.90, including GST.

The plan will be available on a 36-month contract, the company said in a statement on Thursday, adding that additional charges would apply for data, voice and cloud services. Including installation, it would cost $32,739.30 over the three years.

Gigabit connections are not available for regular NBN users apart from some locations like Tasmania, where fibre was laid before the technology change implemented by the Coalition Government.

Last year, Damian Ivereigh, chief executive of Launtel, a Launceston-based ISP, said his was probably the only company which would sell a gigabit connection over the NBN at the moment – and only in Tasmania.

"I believe that we are one of the reasons why Tasmania has a higher than average number of FttP upgrades going on, because you can get gigabit here," Ivereigh told iTWire.

"iiNet Fibre1000 is the type of broadband Aussie businesses need to confidently move operations to cloud-based applications and large-scale hosted phone/SIP solutions," iiNet said.

"The symmetrical bandwidth means businesses can upload as fast as they download to save time where it matters and the easy to use online portal makes it possible to share 1000Mbps bandwidth as desired across voice, cloud, data or Internet services for prioritisation and security."

The company said the plans came with unlimited data, 99.95% service level agreement, 24x7x365 priority business support, and a dedicated account manager and project case officer.
