iiNet chief executive Michael Malone has called for those commenting on the National Broadband Network to return to judging ideas on their "technical merit", instead of letting politics cloud the national debate.
iiNet is now Australia's second largest internet service provider as far as ADSL connections go and a technically sound ISP, going by by my own experience. But when it comes to the other sides of its business, like support and sales, iiNet is no better than any other ISP - in fact, in my view it is much worse than many.
iiNet-owned broadband provider, Internode, has today started offering its “best-selling” Easy Broadband ADSL2+ services from an extra 240 telephone exchanges throughout Australia that contain iiNet DSLAM equipment.
