Introducing Belong Broadband
If you’ve been shopping around for a broadband plan, you’ve probably experienced the confusion and hassle of trying to work out exactly what the various plans are going to cost you. There’s all sorts of hidden extras and surprise charges with some broadband plans, like connection charges, “activation” fees, discounts that expire after a few months, and contract plans that cost a fortune to escape from if you want to switch. It’s all a bit much when you just want one simple thing – a fast, reliable and affordable broadband service, with zero hassles.
That’s where Belong Broadband comes in. They’re all about keeping things simple. Their plans are “what you see is what you get” – no hidden charges, no nasty surprises on the bill, and no fussing around with complicated plan options or confusing temporary deals.
What Does Belong Broadband Offer?
Powered by the fast, reliable and state-of-the-art Telstra broadband network, Belong Broadband gets you connected to Australia’s most popular network without confusing you with stuff you don’t need. No matter which plan you pick, Belong Broadband has no data limits – you can download and upload as much as you like, which means you can binge-watch those Netflix shows with confidence! You also have the choice of paying month by month, or saving some money by choosing a 12-month contract – it’s entirely up to you.
The National Broadband Network – the NBN – is in the advanced stages of its rollout, and Belong Broadband is ready to deliver it to you with some of the best value plans you’ll find. It’s as simple as picking your preferred connection speed and deciding whether or not you want a contract – there’s no sneaky extra fees to keep an eye out for. There’s no setup fee, no activation fee – and if you opt for a 12-month contract, a wi-fi modem is thrown in for free. And you won’t be paying much at all – think unlimited data, 50/20 Mbps speed and a free modem for only $65/month for 12 months.
You’re not left out if your area is still waiting for the NBN. As one of the most experienced ADSL providers in Australia, Belong Broadband can get you connected to reliable ADSL with no hassles and not very much money per month – only $60 per month, in fact, on a 12-month contract with a free modem (or $70 if you prefer month-to-month). Unlike many internet providers that offer ADSL, there’s zero connection fee, no activation fee and absolutely no nasty surprises – just a quality ADSL connection that’s ready for the NBN when it arrives in your area.
Belong’s mobile plans aren’t specifically mobile data plans, but are well suited to use for mobile broadband, running on Australia’s fastest mobile network. For $40 per month you can get yourself a 15GB data allowance – with unlimited national and international calls and texts included. Like everything from Belong, the quality is high but the price is surprisingly low.
$80 Free Mobile Credit
Unique to Belong Broadband is a terrific bonus for every customer, regardless of whether you’re on NBN or ADSL. Once you’ve signed up for a Belong Broadband plan, they’ll send you a mobile SIM card with your new modem, which is pre-loaded with $80 credit – all you need to do it stick it in your device of choice and activate your new Belong mobile service with the Belong app.

Belong Broadband FAQs
What Download Speeds Can I Get with Belong Broadband?
Unlike many broadband providers, Belong Broadband doesn’t use the NBN’s slowest connection speed at all, and those connecting to the standard plans will get a 50/20 Mbps service if the connection type supports it. Connections are also available at up to 100 Mbps if your service is delivered via fibre to the home. ADSL customers, meanwhile, are connected via Telstra’s ADSL2+ network, available in almost every phone exchange across Australia. ADSL speeds depend on distance to the exchange but can reach maximum download speeds of 20 Mbps and a top upload speed of 850 Kbps.
Can I Change NBN Speeds After Being Connected?
As long as you choose the month-to-month option, you have the freedom to change your NBN plan speed up or down each month (and be billed accordingly). But even if you connect on a 12-month contract, if it turns out you’re not able to reach the speed you’re paying for, you can switch to a lower-speed plan without any penalty (or cancel your service altogether if you prefer).
Can I Get A Home Phone Bundled with a Belong Broadband Service?
Belong Broadband’s focus is on providing fuss-free, great-value broadband, so a home phone service isn’t included. You do, however, get $80 of mobile credit on a supplied SIM card to get started with, and with unlimited calls and text available for as little as $10 per month on the supplied Belong SIM, you likely won’t miss the home phone much!
How Much Does Setup Cost?
There’s no setup or activation fee at all for Belong Broadband – the only thing you’ll be asked to pay on day one is the $60 cost of a modem, which is free if you choose the 12-month contract. As a bonus, Belong Broadband starts billing on the 1st of each month – so once you’re signed up, whatever’s left of the current month is completely free!
