Internode, founded on 8 May 1991 by Managing Director Simon Hackett, is an Australian Internet Service Provider (ISP). The company focuses primarily on ADSL-based Internet access, but also provides business-class access (Internode Business Connect), web hosting, co-location, Voice over IP, and a variety of related services.

Internode is based in Adelaide, South Australia (SA). The company's services are available nationwide through many means including:

*ADSL (using DSLAM ports provided by Telstra Wholesale)

*ADSL2+ rollout nationwide (still in progress)

*Wireless hotspots in Adelaide

*A SA regional telecommunications backbone based on microwave/wireless and ADSL2+ technologies

Internode was the first ISP to offer ADSL2/2+ services in Australia, by installing their own DSLAMs in Telstra exchanges. This allowed them to offer access speeds of up to 24Mbit/s, significantly higher than the fastest speed then offered by Telstra at the time (1.5Mbit/s).

(See also Broadband Internet Access, Australia)

Internode also provides a Naked ADSL2+ service, operating on both Agile and Optus hardware. This does not include a PSTN voice service, but also does not require line rental.

Internode is also a part of the Terria consortium which bid to build the National Broadband Network.
