‘Pause for us time’
Disconnect to reconnect with iPrimus

Thanks to a new service from leading internet provider iPrimus, parents can push pause on their internet connection and reclaim precious family time.

In an industry-leading first, a simple touch of a button in the new iPrimus app activates the ‘Pause for us time’ service, which puts a customer’s internet connection on hold for up to four hours at a time.

Many Australian parents are concerned about excessive use of digital devices, especially among children and young teens. Research shows that 94% of Australian teens own a smartphone or tablet, while 67% of primary school kids and 36% of pre-schoolers have access to mobile devices. (1)

“We all lead busy, connected lives and sometimes we can forget to take a breather and appreciate what’s around us,” says Scott Carter, Chief Executive of iPrimus. “We want to make it easy for our customers to talk, play, laugh, cook, enjoy a meal and just spend some quality time together with their families, without the kids having their eyes glued to a device. We want our customers to have the flexibility to use the internet on their own terms.”

‘Pause for us time’, is just one of the many market-leading features that iPrimus has launched. In addition, customers of the trusted internet provider will be able to enjoy features such as flexible plan changes between data limits and speed tiers, a complimentary boost to their data allowance every year, and the ability to pause their internet bill when they go away on holiday.

“Australians have told us they want more flexibility when it comes to internet plans and we’re here to deliver our version of the most flexible internet you can get,” iPrimus General Manager, Vadim Taube proudly explains.

‘Pause for us time’ is the latest in a long line of firsts for iPrimus. This feature can be activated and deactivated under “My Account” on the iPrimus website and iPrimus app.

All internet dependent devices stop working, except for the iPrimus website and iPrimus-supplied Fetch TV so families can enjoy a movie together.

About iPrimus

The Australian telecommunications space has been witness to a rapidly shifting technology landscape in recent years. A major player in this ever-evolving world, iPrimus continues to make an impressive imprint.

The iPrimus brand was established in 1997, and was one of the first service providers to enter the market following the deregulation of internet services in Australia.

In 1999, iPrimus was the first major telco to offer unlimited dial up internet, followed by ground-breaking bundling of unlimited internet, phone line rental and calls.

Today, iPrimus continues to lead the way through excellence in connectivity, innovation, flexibility, and an inspiring customer focus.
