AUSTRALIAN telco iiNet has confirmed it will offer a free internet service to its home customers in every community in its portfolio.
iiNet says the move is aimed at reducing the cost of internet access and will help customers connect more to the internet, as it is a key part of the home internet.

iiNets broadband and home internet service is available for a one-off fee of $15.50, or $18.50 for a two-month contract.
iiSights telco’s broadband services are also free for households, while iiNet is offering its home internet package for a $20 monthly subscription, or a $35 monthly subscription for a four-month period.
iiP says it has more than 100,000 premises in Australia and provides a range of broadband and cable services for more than 20,000 households.
It has said it aims to be the most affordable broadband provider in Australia.
