If you were able to pick and choose what you wanted in a provider like building a Frankenstein’s monster, what would you select? How about a provider with the network and reliability of Telstra, but the cost and no-fuss attitude of one of Australia’s newest providers?
It sounds too good to be true, but with Belong Broadband, it isn’t. As a subsidiary of Telstra, Belong is designed to give you much of the advantages of Telstra but at a far cheaper price – i.e. the best of both worlds.
Belong Broadband Review
One of the many gripes with Telstra over the years has been the cost and their lack of flexibility. And while Telstra has done a lot to address these concerns in recent years, Belong has gone one step better by listening to the things we all liked – and didn’t like – about Australia’s biggest telco. Although they are a subsidiary, they’ve got plenty of autonomy, which is perfect because this means they have the advantages of being a part of Telstra’s network but make all their own decisions.
So are Belong Broadband truly the best of both worlds – a company with the hunger of a smaller provider backed by Australia’s most comprehensive network? Read on to see what we’ve discovered!

What is Belong Broadband?
While we keep emphasising the ‘all the good but none of the bad parts of Telstra’ line, we want to emphasise that Belong is not Telstra Lite. They are their own entity. They have a lot in common with many of the newer, smaller providers who have burst onto the scene in recent years offering flexible deals, good quality internet and a no-fuss attitude – all at a good price. The only difference is that they’ve got the backing – and the network – of Telstra.
What broadband plans are available?
Belong Broadband has three NBN plans: Starter, Standard Plus and Premium, all of which differ on the basis of download speed. The Starter plan has 30MBPS download speeds, which is a pretty solid speed that will allow two people to perform basic internet activities at the same time. Standard Plus bumps it up a tad to 40MBPS, which will be good for three to six people in a household to be online at the same time with minimal interruption.
The big daddy is Premium, which is fast enough for multiple 4K streams. Each of their plans defaults to month-to-month – which is perfect for renters and students. There’s also a 12-month contract option (except for the Premium plan), which comes with a free modem with slightly cheaper monthly plan fees.
Does Belong offer ADSL?
Belong no longer offers ADSL. However, the connection of existing ADSL customers won’t be affected.

Belong Broadband Summary
Belong Broadband is a real no fuss kind of provider. They’re mainly recognised for their good quality internet at low prices, which when it comes to broadband is pretty much what everyone wants. This means while they’re good for students and renters – no contracts, remember – they’re also good for families.
Belong Broadband won’t cost you too much and will not skimp on quality. They get a strong rating from us, winning points for simplicity and effectiveness but losing a couple for a lack of added extras. If you want internet that works and won’t break the bank, then there’s a good chance you’ve found a provider you Belong to.
