A Winning Connection: Internode achieves ADSL Broadband Award for 2013
The internet is an essential part of our everyday lives, and the right provider can make an enormous difference to your ability to get things done. Those on the hunt for a new ADSL internet service provider (ISP) will be pleased to know Internode has been awarded Canstar Blue’s Most Satisfied Customers Award – ADSL Broadband Providers for 2013.
Also rated in the ADSL – Broadband Providers category were iiNet, iPrimus, TPG, Optus, Dodo and Telstra Bigpond.
Acquired by iiNet in December 2011, Internode has continued to operate as a unique brand and continues to offer many of the same products and services it did before.
The acquisition has served Internode well, with the company achieving five stars for overall customer satisfaction, technical support, connection speed, reliability of connection, and its billing services.
Internode shared some of the spotlight with TPG, who nabbed five stars for its value for money.
