WA-based Internet Service Provider iiNet has announced plans to launch it’s naked DSL service later this month. After testing it with 60 iiNet users over two months ago, it said that it was satisfied with the results. “We’re hoping to unite broadband access and VoIP capabilities within one service, while eliminating the need to rent a phone line to use them,” said Mark White, iiNet’s chief operating officer, to ZDNet Australia.
Specific pricing of the plan were not released, but claimed the service to be $10-$15 less than an average broadband plan. The company has also warned that the naked DSL service is expected to disrupt anything that is connected to the phone line, including EFTPOS machines.
Naked DSL plans do not come with a bundled telephone plan.
