Broadband provider Internode has cut the price of its 3G modem range by $50.
From tomorrow, those buying a 3G modem outright can either have
the residential E160E modem for $99 instead of $149 or the
professional E1762 modem for $149 instead of $199. On a 24-month
contract, the modems are free and $50 respectively.
The price drop was thanks to the improvement in the Australian
dollar since the company's 3G product NodeMobile Data was
launched in April, according to Internode product manager Jim
"We've had great uptake of this service since it was launched
and we expect this move to accelerate its adoption," he said.
The company has also launched static IP services for its
wireless broadband as well as releasing a 3G antenna to improve
signal reception. The antenna costs $29.95.
Internode resells Optus 3G. Its plans cost $14.95 per month for an entry-level plan
with 500MB worth of data or $39.95 for 5GB.
