First-ever Internet Plan Designed for Australian Rental Market Launched by MyNetFone

Delivers value packed DSL with unlimited free relocations to meet the needs of Australia’s mobile population

MyNetFone, Australia's leading provider of hosted voice and data communications services, today announces the introduction of the first plan in the DSL market created specifically for renters. The Renters Internet Plan delivers for a flat fee of $49 per month - unlimited DSL service relocations, 500GB of data and a free modem.

The Renters Internet Plan addresses the overlooked needs of today’s generation of renters. With 1 in 3 Australian households currently renting1, that’s 2.6 million households2 who could benefit from plans tailored to renters – whether for internet or other utilities. And renters are on the rise – in the past decade this number has already increased by 13% for low income and 19% for middle income families3.

Most internet providers tend to offer the best value deals on 24 month contracts. However, 47% of Australians have lived in their current rental property for less than two years1 – so committing to a 24, or even a 12 month internet contract is not practical for them. Meanwhile ‘no contract’ plans typically come with prohibitively high upfront fees for modem and setup – last thing a renter needs after paying bond & moving costs.

MyNetFone’s Renters Internet Plan is designed to address renter’s specific needs, offering the convenience of a short six-month contract – matching the shortest rental contract period, free service relocations, free modem and a low once-off $99 set-up fee - an ideal solution for an increasingly mobile generation of renters.

“Like many of our innovative solutions, The Renters Internet Plan came from the real-life experience and frustrations of our own workforce, many of whom are young renters,” Rene Sugo, CEO and co-founder of MyNetFone said. “When we realised that no ISP was delivering what they needed, we put together the plan which combines the flexibility of a shorter term and free relocation, with the benefits of typical longer contracts, like a free modem and low sign up fee. It’s a lifestyle service that moves with you.”

The MyNetFone Renters Internet Plan means tenants no longer have to second guess whether or not they will stay in a property when their lease is up for renewal. Instead they have the peace of mind that their competitively priced Internet connection can move with them for no additional cost.

“The plan delivers all the benefits renters require: low commitment, low cost and high data allowance, combined with complete flexibility which enables them to take the Renters Plan with them when they move at zero additional cost,” added Sugo. “The new plan directly addresses the needs of renters and is the first in the Australian market to meet their requirements and alleviate their frustrations.”

The Renters Internet Plan offers:

  • $49.95/month with 500GB
  • Free relocation and free modem
  • 6 month contract
  • $99 Setup + $16.95 modem shipping fee.
