It looks as though iiNet, the fastest growing ISP in Australia, is about to buy Internode.
The deal is expected to be completed by the end of February. iiNet has maintained some of its other acquired brands — Westnet and Netspace being the clear examples — and Internode will also continue as a separate business unit. “Off-net” customers — those using a service wholesaled from Telstra — will be migrated to the iiNet network. Apparently that covers 15,000 of Internode’s 190,000 customers.
More news as we get it.
