Introducing iPrimus Broadband



At the start of Australia’s telecommunications revolution, we went from one provider to two with the arrival of Optus, and then a new name appeared in the market – Primus. Originally owned by the American company of the same name – in more recent years 100% Australian – Primus and their broadband internet arm iPrimus shook things up. For home phone and internet they brought real competition on price and quality of service. Two decades later, iPrimus is one of our most recognised internet providers.

What makes iPrimus unique?

iPrimus offers ADSL and NBN internet connections, all bundled with a home phone service and unlimited landline calls. They pioneered this long before everyone else started offering similar deals. What iPrimus brings is its pedigree as a top-tier internet provider. They have direct access to the data centres that host everything from your software downloads to your Netflix streams. They’ve been frequently upgrading their network to keep up with the ever-increasing demand of a connected age.

Your home phone with iPrimus

If you still want a landline phone at home, fear not – iPrimus broadband was the first independent provider to put its own hardware into phone exchanges. This gave customers a dedicated phone line at lower cost, and they still use that hardware today for ADSL connections where it’s available. On the NBN, your home phone service is moved to the new network where it works like a normal home phone – just running over a more advanced network. Regardless of the iPrimus plan or connection type you choose, your home phone service is included, with unlimited calls to landlines in Australia.

Fetch TV

There’s used to be two providers in Australia offering the Fetch TV service with broadband connections – and iPrimus became the third. This hugely popular and acclaimed service runs on a broadband-connected set top box. It provides everything from high definition digital TV reception, to digital video recording, to streaming services – and can offer 35 premium channels ranging from the BBC to MTV for a low monthly cost.
