Things to Look For in a NBN Plan

The great thing about the NBN is that it opens up a whole world of internet providers for you to weigh up so you can find a plan that’s a good fit for you. In general, prices are the same across all the different NBN technologies (except wireless and satellite) and so the decisions for you are going to be all about what you get. The first thing you’ll want to do is pick a speed; these days, 50 Mbps plans have drastically come down in price and we recommend that for anyone who does a lot of streaming, gaming and downloading. A slower 25 Mbps plan might be fine for a single user, but often it costs very little extra to double that speed (and get much faster uploads, very important for cloud storage and backup as well as uploading photos and videos).

Bundle Your NBN and Save Money

With the NBN, that single connection to your home can act as the communications and entertainment hub for everything you do – so it makes sense to bundle your NBN broadband service with other essentials, like a home phone or some very tasty entertainment options.

It actually makes a lot of sense to go for a bundle in those situations. All home phone lines are now connected via the NBN anyway, so if you want one, you’re going to be using the internet to connect it. Having the home phone bundled in can make a ton of sense and save a lot of money.

And a growing number of internet providers are offering distinctive and compelling entertainment options, too – utilising the NBN’s high speeds to stream high definition TV shows, movies and sports to you on demand.

You can get an idea of the current bundles on offer on this page, where we make it easy to narrow down exactly what you want in your bundle and get an instant overview of the providers that can deliver it, and how much it’ll cost.

The Most Popular NBN Bundles

Choosing exactly what bundle is right for you depends on a lot of factors – how much you’re willing to spend each month, how many phone calls you typically make, how much streaming video you watch, and whether you use broadband to do stuff that requires speed, such as gaming.

The great thing about the NBN is that with so many different providers in the market, there’s a ton of competition for your business – and that means great options no matter who you are.

The Power User – Super Fast Internet

If it’s life in the fast lane that you’re after – whether it be for downloading or uploading huge video files, live streaming games or just having the bandwidth for everyone in the family to stream Netflix in 4K at the same time, you’ll be wanting the speediest NBN plan money can buy. Meanwhile, at the more widely available 100 Mbit speed, MyRepublic rules the roost with an industry-leading typical evening speed of 83 Mbps for under 90 bucks, which already includes unlimited data and a WiFi modem for only $1 if you lock it in for 12 months. Telstra, meanwhile, recently added their Premium NBN plans with typical evening speeds of up to 88Mbps.

The Family Entertainer – TV With Your NBN

The latest Telstra TV 3 is an excellent option if you’re looking for an all-inclusive streaming + broadband package. This entertainment powerhouse can be bundled with Telstra’s broadband plans from only $75/month (+$9 Telstra TV monthly fee). This option, however, has data limits (only 500GB) so you may want to choose the $99 entertainment bundle to score unlimited data on the NBN50 speed tier. Not only that, gamers can also subscribe to Telstra’s broadband + gaming bundles that include the Xbox One X 1TB console plus
100+ games with monthly Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription included.

The TV Drama Fan – NBN Meets Foxtel & Foxtel Now

If you’re still pining for Game of Thrones or can’t wait to see the latest episodes of The Walking Dead then you’ll know there’s only one place to find them and many more superb AAA dramas – Foxtel. And thanks to the speed of the NBN, you can access them via streaming with full high definition picture quality. Telstra’s Unlimited + Streaming bundle gives you a 50 Mbps NBN connection with unlimited data, a home phone with unlimited local, national and mobile calls, the acclaimed Telstra TV 3 streaming box and the option to add Foxtel Now and Foxtel from Telstra in to your broadband account to stream to your heart’s content, with channels including Fox Showcase, where HBO’s shows live.

The Retiree – Low Cost, Endless Phone Calls

If all you’re wanting to get done on the internet is check email, read the news and pay the bills, you don’t need to spend a fortune on an expensive plan to get more NBN than you need. MyRepublic’s cheapest plan sets you up with unlimited data on NBN25 for a very affordable $59/month. Plus, it already includes a phone line with unlimited local and national calls. Southern Phone also includes NBN bundles that include a phone line with unlimited local and national calls from only $60/month. For a more extensive bundling, there’s the NBN Triple Bundle that combines internet, home phone, and mobile, too!

NBN – Everything You Need to Know

Getting connected to Australia’s new network

You’ve no doubt seen the NBN – the National Broadband Network – mentioned time and again in recent years, with politicians on both sides of the fence finding ways to turn a major national infrastructure project into a political issue. But for you, the end user, the outcome is mostly the same – eventually, you and everyone else will be connected to the NBN. So what is it, exactly? And what do you need to know?

The National Broadband Network was originally proposed over ten years ago, with the first customers connected in 2010. The idea was a bold but simple one – to completely replace the copper wires that make up the ageing telephone network with fibre optic cables. It wasn’t going to be cheap and it wasn’t going to be easy, but fibre was considered as the best possible upgrade for Australia’s internet communications. Not only was it far more reliable and durable than copper wires, but it was also more capable of delivering broadband at lightning-fast speeds, and upgradeable to even faster speeds in the future.

The idea was that every home and business would get a fibre optic connection, which would deliver broadband internet and at the same time, replace the traditional home phone line. A small percentage of people in remote areas of Australia where it wasn’t feasible to roll out fibre would instead get connected by fixed wireless or, in extreme cases, satellite. But for most people, fibre was where our broadband was headed.

And then the 2013 federal election happened, and everything changed. The full-fibre NBN was dumped, even though it had already begun rolling out to tens of thousands of customers. In its place was what the incoming government called a “Multi Technology Mix” that drew from a range of different connection options, the intention being to save money and speed up the rollout. A big element of this change was that instead of running new fibre optic cable into each and every home and business, the existing copper wiring would be repurposed instead.

The end result of all this indecision and the mid-rollout change of direction is that today, we have a whole group of different NBN technologies in use, and what you get entirely depends on where you live. Adding to the confusion has been ongoing problems with the use of existing copper wires, something that came as no surprise to some observers. And even as this new mix of technologies was rolling out, another brand new one was introduced.

Making things even more confusing for consumers was the pricing method adopted by the NBN – one where you have to pay more to avoid having your connection artificially slowed down. For customers used to the old days of cable broadband with its “speed boosts”, this method may have seemed familiar, but the way the NBN structured the speed tiers and its pricing meant that a lot of consumers opted for the absolute slowest speed – a tier that was never intended to be used for general home broadband.

Much has changed in recent times. The NBN has changed its pricing structure slightly, encouraging most internet providers to offer much faster speeds to customers at reasonable prices. New connection tech has made super-fast broadband more accessible to many. And the rollout has finally started speeding up, looking like it’ll be completed some time in 2020 (you can check where your home or business is in the rollout plan by searching our interactive NBN rollout tracker).

Why Is the NBN Government Owned?

The key idea behind the NBN was to have a national broadband and phone network that was not controlled by one single company. When Telstra was privatised in the late 1990s, broadband internet was only just beginning to take off – and once it did, Telstra held an enormous amount of control over how ADSL was rolled out. Even when other providers managed to get their own ADSL equipment into Telstra’s exchanges, there was still a long wait to get connected or to switch providers, as physical access to Telstra’s equipment was needed. And for customers in many areas, Telstra was the only broadband option in the area.

With the NBN, the idea was to have a network that’s equally accessible by all companies, making things a lot better for customers. Along with lower prices from increased competition, the idea was that the NBN would let you switch between internet providers with a delay of minutes or hours rather than days or weeks. As originally designed, you could even connect to up to four internet providers at the same time (fibre customers can still do this!).

The ultimate plan, though, was always to eventually sell the NBN once it became profitable. That’s many years into the future, but at some point the NBN will end up privately owned. The ease of access built into its design, though, should stay – and it’s almost worth it for that alone.

What NBN Connection Type Are You?

If elections had turned out differently, we probably wouldn’t be discussing much more than the ins and outs of full-fibre connections right now. But thanks to the MTM concept, we have a whole range of different technologies being used to connect people to the NBN. Which one you get depends on a range of factors that you have no control over – you’ll get told when the NBN will arrive in your area and what type of connection you’ll get.

These different types of connections are mostly indicated with terms that might seem cryptic, but actually reveal a lot about what technology is in use. If you’re house-hunting, one question you should be asking is which type of NBN is in place at a place you’re thinking of renting or buying – because you can’t change it without massive expense, if at all. So what do all these connection terms mean? And what are the pros and cons of each?

FTTP and FTTH – Fibre to the Premises/Home

This is the NBN as it was originally planned – a fibre optic cable connection that runs, as the name suggests, right into your home, where it ends in a large white box called a NTD. You simply plug a modem or router into that, and you’re ready to get online. FTTP is the absolute gold standard for modern broadband, and comes with many advantages. It can provide very fast connections – while 250 Mbps is the fastest currently offered in Australia, current FTTP installs can happily do up to 1000 Mbps – what’s called “gigabit”. It can be upgraded easily to be even faster in the future. It supports near-instant connections – a good internet provider can have you up and running within minutes of you applying for a connection. And being completely free of metals, fibre is immune to things that can bring a copper connection to its knees, like flooding out in the street, corrosion and interference.

FTTN – Fibre to the Node

The technology that was initially brought in as a cheaper alternative to FTTP, Fibre to the Node does what it says on the tin – it runs a fast fibre optic cable all the way to your neighbourhood, where it terminates in a big metal box – a distribution node. From there, the existing copper phone wires are used to connect to nearby houses. This is a relatively old technology – cable TV has used a similar concept for decades – but the weak link with FTTN is, not surprisingly, the copper phone wires at your end of the chain. Old and often in poor condition, they can turn FTTN from a reasonably fast broadband option into an unreliable mess. Even if you get lucky with the copper wires in the street and in your home, there’s also distance to consider. The further away from the local node you are, the slower your maximum speed will be. That’s because it uses a technology very similar to our old friend ADSL, just over a shorter distance.

FTTB – Fibre to the Basement/Building

Often used in existing apartment buildings because it’s far easier than trying to run new cable into dozens or hundreds of residences across multiple floors, FTTB is similar to FTTN, in that fibre is run to a “node”. In this case, though, that node is in the building itself, and residents connect to it using the building’s existing phone wires (and sometimes via Ethernet cable). This can actually be an excellent solution – unlike FTTN, everyone is very close to the node and so high speeds are easily achieved. And there aren’t any external copper wires to get damaged by rain or other elements. Some companies, such as TPG, have taken the step of building their own FTTB services outside of the NBN to meet voracious demand from apartment dwellers.

HFC – Hybrid Fibre/Coaxial

There’s nothing new about this one – HFC is the technical name for what you know as the old pay TV cables! Working similarly to Fibre to the Node, HFC uses a street box to distribute a fibre connection to many homes via copper. The difference here is that the copper is a thick, well insulated coaxial cable (very much like your TV antenna lead). That allows for reliably fast speeds in the 50-100 Mbps range, with new technology able to push speeds even higher. HFC has been used for broadband for a long time now, but the NBN version will leverage those new technologies and should deliver solid, reliable broadband – as long as the cables are in good condition. Sadly, in many cases, these 20-year-old cables are not.

FTTdp – Fibre to the Distribution Point

This is the newest technology to be put into play on Australia’s NBN, sometimes referred to as “Fibre to the Curb” (though that’s a US term that’s more equivalent to FTTN here). It’s kind of the ultimate compromise in that it avoids the costs of installing fibre all the way into homes, but eliminates the “node” and takes long copper wire runs out of the picture as well. FTTdp puts connection points along the fibre cable in the street, one for each home. The home then connects to that cable with the existing copper phone line, but thanks to the distance usually being extremely short, high speeds are almost a guarantee (unless there are problems with the home’s phone wiring). Using the latest connection technology over that copper, gigabit speeds are theoretically possible.

Fixed Wireless and Sky Muster Satellite

For those too far out in the wilds of Australia to get access to any of the fibre-based technologies, there are two options. Fixed Wireless is designed to fill areas where rollout of cables wasn’t possible or feasible, such as when there’s distances of many kilometres between properties. An antenna is installed on your building and you connect via proven wireless tech; it’s not blazingly fast but it works well, as long as there aren’t too many people connecting to the same tower at once. For truly remote properties, as well as Australia’s island territories, the NBN has its own satellite ready to handle broadband. Named Sky Muster, it can deliver broadband from space at up to 25 Mbps – not breaking any records, but fast enough to get stuff done.

Unlimited Data

You’ll want to aim for plans with unlimited data – it’s pretty much the industry standard these days, and there’s a lot to say for not needing to worry about going over your monthly limit. There was a time when unlimited data plans were a sign of a potentially slow and congested network, but most providers seem to have that problem solved now.

Peak Evening Speeds

Internet providers now have to disclose, by law, the typical speeds each plan can reach in the busy peak evening hours. This is a handy number to compare when you’re checking out plans, as it’ll give you some idea of whether there’s any chance of the dreaded evening “Netflix slowdown”. The closer this number comes to the plan speed, the better.

No Connection Fees

Unlike the old ADSL days, the NBN doesn’t charge internet providers a fee to connect customers to the network – and so any provider you go with shouldn’t be charging you a “connection fee” either. Thankfully, they’re becoming rare, but there are still providers out there that think there should be a fee just because there’s always been a fee. Don’t pay money for literally nothing!


How Much Is NBN Monthly?

While there’s a perception that the NBN has made broadband more expensive, that’s actually not the case – because one of the benefits of the NBN is that it gives you a greatly expanded choice of providers, who are competing with each other for your business. So even if you’re on a tight budget, you can get the NBN connected at an affordable price – as little as $55/month with unlimited data on either Southern Phone or Belong Broadband, for example. So why would you pay more? Well, those plans at $55 are at the NBN 25 speed – about as fast as the fastest ADSL was, and totally fine for, say, streaming Netflix in HD or even 4K. But if you want more speed for faster downloads, or to let multiple members of the household do stuff online at once, then the price goes up. But not drastically – for $65 a month you can double that speed to NBN 50, for example.

At the top end of the price scale you’ll see rates of $140/month or more – but for that money, you’re getting something extra, such as a full Foxtel service and home phone line with Telstra Broadband.

How Much Data Are You Going to Need?

The big question with broadband used to be what size data limit you should get to make sure you had enough to cover your monthly usage. That became especially important as streaming services started to take off, chewing up gigabytes of data by the hour. But times have changed, and these days you’ll find NBN plans with unlimited data are almost the norm.

These are the way to go for anyone who uses the internet a lot. Having unlimited data takes all the worry out of internet usage and turns it into a utility that you just use whenever you need it. You have the reassurance that no matter what, your monthly bill is going to be the same.

Of course, there are exceptions. Some providers still offer a few limited-data plans (like Telstra’s 500GB plans) to help people save money. And customers on satellite NBN (Sky Muster) services will have a data limit they need to keep an eye on as well (though “unlimited” plans are starting to appear). 

In general, since there are so many different sources of data usage, the best way to go about it is to use the tools provided by your provider to see your daily and monthly usage. You might only stream the occasional show, and the rest of the time use the internet for simpler things like banking or Facebook. If you’re using less than around 15GB a day, you might be better off moving to a 500GB plan, for example.

What Is the Best NBN Speed?

How fast your NBN can go depends greatly on what type of connection you have – but in general, all wired NBN connections can reach at least NBN 100 (that’s 100 Mbps download, 40 Mbps upload). There’s one big exception to that – Fibre to the Node (FTTN). The speed you can achieve on those connections will depend how far away your home is from the nearest node (the big green box in the street). 

While NBN 100 is plenty fast enough for many – it’s great for downloading large console games, for example – just recently, NBN has raised the bar a little. Customers lucky enough to have a Fibre to the Premises connection (FTTP) as well as a handful of HFC (cable) customers now have access to a pair of even faster speed tiers – NBN 250 and NBN 1000. And yes, they’re as fast as the numbers suggests, with the latter delivering close to 1000 Mbps download – so fast that most peoples’ wi-fi won’t be able to keep up, and neither will many download sources. It’s not for everyone and it’s still expensive, but what’s known as “gigabit” NBN is a tantalising glimpse of the future.

What Are the Fastest NBN Providers?

The new speeds mentioned above are only available from a few providers right now, and for good reason – very few people can attain those speeds and even fewer have the right modem and home network to handle them. Those who want to try it out can get the new plan speeds through providers like Aussie Broadband and Launtel.

But NBN speed is as much about the quality of the network that feeds your connection as anything else – and not all providers are the same, despite the NBN speed tiers suggesting otherwise. There’s no point having a NBN 50 connection if your chosen provider gets so congested during busy periods that everything slows to a crawl.

A key thing to remember when shopping for an NBN provider is to check each provider’s stated “typical evening speed”. It’s in the evenings when their network will be at its busiest, and providers that promise nice fast speeds during that time are usually the ones that have faster, better tuned networks. 

Telstra

Telstra’s network is renowned for its speed and capacity even during the busiest times, and if it’s reliably fast speed you’re after, that makes Telstra a very solid choice up at the top of the pack. A huge part of the internet across Australia is carried on connections owned and operated by Telstra, so they’re better equipped than most to deliver a rock-solid, fast NBN service.
