As of November 7, iiNet broadband customers will be able to get the iPhone 6 starting at AU$35 per month, or the iPhone 6 Plus starting at AU$40 per month, for a 24-month plan. The devices will also be available to new customers without an iiNet broadband service from December 2, 2014.

As part of the broadband and mobile bundles, customers will need to pay AU$39.95 per month for their ADSL2+ Home-1 Plan (with 50GB of data included per month), as well as a one-time broadband connection fee of AU$79.95 and a one-time AU$20 SIM cost.

From there, you can choose between a number of iiNet mobile plans, from the entry-level AU$15 per month (200GB of data), through to AU$30 per month (1GB of data), AU$40 (2GB of data) up to the all-inclusive AU$60 per month plan (3GB of data).

Those in 4G-coverage areas will be able to use the handsets on iiNet's 4G LTE network -- that includes users in Sydney, Perth, Melbourne, Newcastle, Queensland and the Gold Coast metro -- with speeds reverting to 3G in non-coverage areas.

The iPhone 6 and 6 Plus join the other handsets available through iiNet, including the iPhone 5s, iPhone 5c and a range of Samsung Galaxy devices.

Check out the full pricing below (calculated using the AU$15 per month plan to show the minimum cost over 24 months for each of the handsets). To get an idea of what the other major telcos are offering, check out our full run-down of Australian iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus pricing.
