About TransACT mobile phone plans

TransACT was the forerunner of the NBN with its business model of an Open Access Network philosophy. In 2014, TransACT was constructing Australia’s largest free public access Wi-Fi network, to blanket the entire city of Canberra with fast and secure public Wi-Fi. The network uses over 700 Cisco wireless access points. At the launch of the project in May 2014, iiNet Chief Business Officer Greg Bader said it was a globally significant goal: “We believe that free Wi-Fi access is a critical part of the infrastructure of modern cities.”

TransACT is now part of the iiNet Group, Australia’s second-largest DSL Internet Provider. This means their plans are all available through iiNet with a range of 4G Mobile plans and handsets.
