Technical support is a joke. Jon’s for South Africans that have no knowledge and I can’t even understand them sometimes. They get you to do all the work and then give you the options of paying for a technician if it is not there fault. I knew those guys when they were in a garage in Perth WA and I joined them 30 years ago. No loyalty , pay your. I’ll. Do as little as possible. Maximise profits. Take Jons offshore. Charge for everything.
Yep they are confirmed parasites.

By far the worst service provider I've ever dealt with. I've spent more time on the phone with them resolving issues than I have with my family. Wouldn't recommend this company to my worst enemy.

Thought NBN supposed to be better than ADSL but with iiNet, even worse, slow, cut off way too often. Not recommended.

Hi, I don't even know what tier I'm on, but I choose the most expensive plan... and I still get buffering, I have fibre to the premises not to the node so I should have good service, however when watching MotoGP and F1 I still have to connect to my Optus 4G network to get a better viewing.. It appears to me all plans one speed... Slow!! out of three months service it has only worked for 1 month.. calls to technical support proved useless, they will avoid at all costs sending out a technician, spent hours and multiple ph. calls then after 2 months of no internet I had to get a friend look at it and discover the primary port on the NBN box was blown up so he used the aux. port and just like that I had internet again all be it still slow. They still refuse to fix the primary port! Today a 61 minute ph. call to try and cancel subscription... it seems the only person that wants my money is the Lady in cancellations maybe they should promote her to Tech support!

I have been with iiNet for 12 years, but won't be much longer. I am clearly loyal and know them well, so this is a review you can believe. They used to be great, truly great. They were well-known for quality products and service, with excellent tech support out of Perth. Sadly, in recent years they have gone from first to worst. I don't remember having an outage in the first 9 years - speed and reliability were excellent. Now I often have to hotspot my Telstra mobile to run my internet-based business because my iPhone offers faster and more reliable speeds than iiNet's ADSL2+. I also have Fetch through iiNet, but there is almost no point given the high level of dropouts. I have given iiNet every possible opportunity to convince me to stay with them, but they are an utter disaster. I cannot emphasis strongly enough how appalling they have become. If they can't manage to look after a customer who has been loyal for 12 years, they certainly won't look after you! Do NOT sign up for iiNet.

Reasonable internet service where you get what you pay for. Tech and customer support have been useful 80% of the time.

To say that dealing with iiNet is a nightmare, would be a massive understatement. Their customer service is atrocious, they lie and mislead their customers. The amount of time I have spent on the phone with them over the last few days( after an outage on Friday 12/5/18) would equate to a full month refund on my account. Still don't have Internet or land line, and they are refusing to fix the issue and are bullying me into agreeing to a wrong call out fee, to which I refuse on the grounds that they themselves have found there is a fault with the actual telephone line, which is owned by Telstra, and they won't fix it ! Disgraceful behaviour, big bully tactics! Be aware be very aware when dealing with this INCOMPETANT excuse for a service provider!

My fibre account was accidentally disconnected by iinet over two months ago, I understand that mistakes happen, but I don't understand why it can take over two months to reconnect my service!

iinet has proved to be a nightmare!!!
We have been having problems with the speed and many times no internet at all.
Lately we have been having problems with the modem which disconnects the wifi.
We have been trying to fix it and when the problem came back the company simply refuses to change the modem.
I had to go away for 3 weeks and the way they have been communicating with my husband is simply appalling!!!!
I will be lodging a complaint!!!

I have been with iinet for just over a year. Have experienced many dropouts over this period (sometimes for several days at a time) & iinet are far too happy to palm off the problem to NBNCo. Very frustrating that when you call to report problems with your internet you have to listen to the automated messages/adverts telling you that you don’t need to be on the phone & can simply manage your account online (which would be fine if I wasn’t calling because of an outage)! When I renewed my plan I selected no modem as I already had an existing one & they still tried to charge me for shipping of the modem I didn’t order! To their credit this was refunded but I still had to spend ages on the phone explaining the problem (which shouldn’t have been that difficult to understand). I am currently without internet at my new property... still waiting for service! On the plus side when I do have internet, i have never exceeded my download limit & it is fairly priced. Speeds rate poor to average.
