Australian internet service provider iiNet has today announced a new deal which will see products coming out of their Labs division sold in New Zealand as early as next week.
Internode has extended the coverage of its Internode Business Connect (IBC) private IP network services into New Zealand in partnership with New Zealand ISP Orcon to serve Australian clients with offices in New Zealand.

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.

But there has been one notable bright spot in the last week - the defiance that the internet service provider iiNet has shown in the face of more pressure from the copyright industry.
