Believe the hype!

It’s a great time to be looking for a broadband plan in Australia, with fierce competition in full swing as ISPs compete to get your attention and you hard-earned dollars. Once a footnote on ISP web sites, the humble bundle deal now at the forefront. Ain’t competition great?

The five ISP bundles featured here are all about the extra stuff.

Just what kind of stuff depends on what you’re really looking for in a package. If you’re entertainment-minded, you can turn your attention to the grand battle between Aussie Broadband, Telstra, and Dodo. They’re battling it out on the streaming TV front and want to give you a device to watch it on.

Or, if you’re the sort of person who loves to sit on the phone for hours and chat to friends – and especially if most of those friends are on mobile phones – you’ll appreciate the bundles from several providers that take all the worry out of both the phone and internet bill in one neat little package for a fixed monthly fee.

Most offerings seem to have become far more focused in recent times, providing sensible solutions at a great price, and acknowledging that with the rise of Netflix, Stan and Foxtel Now, people are using more data than ever before.

Let’s take a look at the current offers that most definitely are hypeworthy:

#1: Telstra Entertainment Bundle

Telstra’s Unlimited Broadband + Streaming Bundle really delivers. For just $99/month, you get unlimited data, landline rental, the latest Telstra smart modem with 4G backup, and the Telstra TV 3. This brilliant little box has a fine pedigree – it’s actually the acclaimed Roku streaming box that’s hugely popular in the US. It’s an app-based device that has support for all the major players – like Netflix and Stan. The Telstra TV is also one of the only devices that currently supports viewing Foxtel Now in HD, making it a valuable addition to any household that doesn’t want (or can’t get) cable or satellite TV. And to help you experience it, this bundle comes with a $125 worth of credits for Telstra TV Box Office! Telstra’s expansive network is first-rate, too, and the bundle is also available via their cable service.

#5: Sumo Saver Bundles

Not really interested in free entertainment or free devices? How about we talk about a different kind of bundling — one that includes other basic utilities such as gas and electricity? Sumo Broadband delivers exactly that with their ‘Saver’ bundles. These bundles come in three varieties: Single Saver, Double Saver, and the SUPER Saver bundle. The Single Saver bundle only includes internet with electricity, while the double can be a combination of either internet and electricity or gas and electricity. If you want it all bundled up, the SUPER Saver bundle can save you a whole lot of money by combining gas, electricity, and internet all in one convenient bill. Best thing about this is how you get more for less if you choose to bundle your internet, instead of paying for just that one service. How’s that for being a good ‘saver’?
