Free customer Wi-Fi from iiNet


More and more business customers want to access free, convenient Wi-Fi while shopping or doing business – if only to do in-store research.

iiNet is now offering its business users a free customer guest system that does not affect the business data quota.

In 2008, it merged with Soul (a back door listing as a remnant of the Soul Pattinson Chemist Group) and has about 671,000 broadband and 360,000 mobile subscribers. It acts as a Mobile Virtual Network Operator for the Optus network since August 2008.

A lawsuit regarding TPG's advertising was filed by the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) in December 2010. It accused TPG of misleading its customers by advertising that its "unlimited" broadband package only cost $29.99 per month when the actual minimum monthly cost was $59.99.
