Click Broadband’s motto is simple: they promise the cheapest unlimited-data plans in Australia. While it’s a bold claim, it’s one they don’t make lightly. Click Broadband does have some of the cheapest plans available on the Australian market — and while their add ons are minimal, they’re definitely part of the new brigade, who specialises in minimum-fuss internet without the glitter and make-up that the others like to apply generously.

The Facts

  • Data limits: All plans come with unlimited data
  • Connection types: NBN, ADSL
  • Price categories: Low to Medium-High
  • All plans have unlimited data and come with no lock-in contracts
  • Support: Phone, Email, Website

Click Broadband Review

So, you start an ISP and you want to attract attention? Advertising that you have ‘Australia’s cheapest unlimited internet plans’ should do it. When reviewing the Click Broadband plans, what stands out is that they certainly do rank among the cheapest, proving that Click’s claims are not cliche. They also don’t come with a catch or any hidden costs or surprises. They genuinely offer cheap internet, which is definitely no frills but still suitable for the average Aussie broadband user. Their plans come with no contract and 18-month contract options. All of their plans come without usage limits, which is a welcome relief for those of us who have to watch every last one of our megabytes – or who receive bills containing astronomical costs a month later for exceeding our limits.

Click is cheap, but they don’t make everyone sign up to a one-size-fits-all plan. They’ve got plenty of options, and they’ve stuck with ADSL despite moving into NBN, so Aussies all over the country can sign up.

What makes Click Broadband unique?

What makes Click Broadband unique? In a word: price. Click Broadband’s deals are some of the cheapest in Australia, if not the absolute cheapest that any provider has on offer. But unlike some other providers who can offer cheap plans primarily because they require users to choose one of a limited number of options, Click Broadband still has enough flexibility so that you can find the plan that suits you.  Their plans come as no contract options, with the ADSL offering requiring an 18-month plan. They have a seven-day support service, affordable prices, unlimited data and even though you may not have heard of them, they’ve been around for donkey’s years – so they’re experienced in what is a difficult market to navigate.

Key Click Broadband Features

  • Unlimited data on all NBN and ADSL plans
  • Choose between 18-month and month-to-month
  • $10 monthly discount for the first 6 months
  • No setup fees, 7-day customer support
  • Cheap landline bundling

Another thing that makes Click Broadband unique is their mobile calling plans. While most Aussie internet users have gotten used to either using Skype or Facebook to call abroad – or paying astronomical amounts for regular phone calls – Click Broadband offers a call package which includes unlimited calls to Canada, France, Germany, Ireland, Netherlands, Spain, UK, USA, China, India, New Zealand, Italy, Vietnam, Philippines and South Africa. This is perfect for people with friends in far-away places, or people who want to meet friends who live far away.

What Plans are Offered by Belong Broadband?

As we wrote above, Click is cheap, but they don’t make everyone sign up to a one-size-fits-all plan. They’ve got plenty of options, and they’ve stuck with ADSL despite moving into NBN, so Aussies all over the country can sign up. Then there are the perks – like no contracts and unlimited data – which is not limited to one or the other plan but instead applies to all of the NBN plans. Unfortunately, few of these perks apply to the ADSL plan. They promise the ‘best internet deals in town’, and after having run the rule across them, it’s hard to argue.

Click NBN Plans

Click Broadband offers four different NBN plans, all of which are unlimited and all of which don’t require a contract. There’s no setup fee and while you’ll need to bring your own modem, they’ll hook you up with one of their pre-configured ones for a reasonable fee. The plans differ largely on the basis of download speed, with the cost rising depending on how fast you want your connection to be. The Basic NBN12 plan is suitable for emails and regular internet browsing, and could probably be used by two to three users at the one time. The next step up is the Standard NBN25 plan, which should cover all of your average streaming usages and would be suitable for an internet connected family.

The next step up is the Ultimate NBN50 plan, which is their most popular NBN plan. That will be suitable for a family with large internet usage or for gamers or serial streamers. The fourth and final plan, named the Ultimate Plus NBN100, is so fast that it’s suitable for large households with kids who all watch different things at the same time, or for NASA. Yep, it’s quick. Each of the four plans can be bundled in with a voice package including local, national and some international calls on an unlimited basis. There are three different packages: national, national and mobile, and national, mobile and international.

Click ADSL plans

Click Broadband just has the one ADSL plan, and unlike the NBN plans it requires you to sign an 18-month contract. You can bundle inline rental for a bit extra per month, with calls charged at a pay as you go rate. Unfortunately, the extra options are somewhat limited for the ADSL plan.

How to Contact Click Broadband

The Click Broadband customer service centre is one of their absolute strong points and is recognised as one of the most attentive in the business. It is open seven days a week from 9 am to 10 pm, giving them one of the most accessible customer support teams around. Their website has a contact form if you’d like them to get back to you, while there’s always their email – info@clickbroadband.com.au – which is, of course, accessible around the clock. The Click Broadband call centre is primarily based offshore. As with plenty of the other providers who have based their call centres overseas, this does mean savings for the customer and it can mean the company is investing more into their services.

Awards and Recognition

Click Broadband hasn’t got a bunch of awards on the mantle, but then again they probably aren’t too focused on that. Their customer service is top-notch and their internet is even better. It’s hard to win awards for simply having the cheapest and most accessible broadband – even though perhaps someone should create such an award. They are recognised however for having cheap plans with good quality internet speeds and unlimited downloads – and who wouldn’t want to be recognised for that?

Click Broadband: The Pros and Cons

The Good

  • Affordable unlimited plans with no contracts and no setup fees
  • Offers promotional pricing for the first 6 months
  • 7-day customer support availability

The Gotchas

  • Not much to offer when it comes to broadband bundling

Summary: Now you know where to Click

The main downside with Click is probably that their ADSL plan leaves a bit to be desired, although that could be purely because it is being compared to their NBN plans which are pretty great. Whether or not Click Broadband is actually the cheapest in Australia is up for debate – it will depend on exactly what you want from your provider. But there’s no doubt that they are one of the cheapest out there. Their website reflects this. It’s simple and doesn’t pretend to be something it’s not; pretty much like Click Broadband. So for households looking for a fancy bundle or other add-ons, then Click is most likely not for you. But if you just want good internet that won’t break the bank, then now you know where to Click.
