About Engin Broadband

engin broadbandBest known for establishing the first commercially available VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) network in Australia in 2004, Engin is one of Australia’s leading broadband telephone companies and an authorised NBN provider.

In 2012 the company was sold to Eftel – an internet service provider and telecommunications company that forms part of the M2 Group, which also includes the likes of iPrimus, Commander and Dodo.

While Engin specialises in VoIP phone plans, it also offers landline and post-paid mobile plans, as well as broadband plans for both ADSL and NBN). Both landline and VoIP phone services can be bundled with a broadband service.

In addition to being one of Australia’s largest home broadband providers, iiNet also operates an extensive mobile network, offering scalable plans to customers around the nation.

iiNet has both mobile handset and SIM-only plans, with a variety of top phones available. But what are its best value deals?

iiNet offers three main mobile plans, with base prices of $15, $30 and $45 per month. Whilst each one comes with different amounts of inclusions to cater to the needs of different people, it’s the top $45 plan which stands out in terms of value.

Dubbed the ‘Heavy Use’ plan, iiNet’s most expensive offering comes with all-inclusive (i.e. unlimited) standard and national calls, texts, voicemail and MMS, along with 2GB of anytime data. iiNet’s killer feature, however, is the ability to double your data allowance by bundling your phone plan with an iiNet broadband plan. For the $45 plan, this amounts to a generous 4GB a month.

iiNet’s three plans are identical whether you want a handset or just a SIM card, the one difference being that handset plans come on a 24-month contract whilst SIM plans are month-to-month. Handsets are available for purchase outright or on a monthly repayment (with the same total cost), giving you a flexible option often not available from other carriers.

iiNet was the only mobile service provider to achieve a five-star review for overall customer satisfaction in our 2015 customer satisfaction ratings.
