Westnet / iinet ADSL service (and internet services generally)
MelbournePC has for several years operated as an agent for Westnet (now taken over by Iinet) in providing ADSL services.
Over time we have had less and less new connections and iinet has recently terminated the agency agreement due to inadequate sales. The termination means that Melbourne PC will no longer receive any agency income from iinet but ADSL services provided by Iinet to Melbourne PC members are completely unaffected.
Melbourne PC does not currently recommend any particular ADSL service, although Iinet still provides a service that will be generally competitive.
We expect MelbournePC's mobile broadband service (using the Optus network) to be enhanced with new plans and options in the near future.
MelbournePC is investigating alternative arrangements for ADSL as well as other internet services and will keep members informed as opportunities are identified. The Group will be interested to receive input from members about ADSL and other internet services including the possibility of greater involvement by MelbournePC in future services.
