Southern Phone Broadband
Introducing Southern Phone Broadband
As one of Australia’s most innovative telecommunications companies for the past ten years, Southern Phone has long been trusted as one of the most versatile and successful providers of home and mobile phone services. Run entirely by local governments and putting their profits directly back into the regional communities they set out to serve, Southern Phone rapidly grew into a company trusted Australia-wide for quality of service and value for money.
When it comes to broadband, Southern Phone has got you covered – no matter what type of broadband is right for you. Whether it’s access to the new National Broadband Network at the fastest possible speeds, broadband access in remote areas via satellite, fast mobile broadband or just a traditional ADSL connection, Southern Phone Broadband has a service and a plan for you.
What Does Southern Phone Broadband Offer?
The Internet is rapidly becoming as essential a utility as power and water, and Southern Phone has long seen that coming as it becomes more and more a part of our daily lives. Thanks to their commitment to keeping local communities connected, Southern Phone Broadband encompasses a range of different technologies so that no matter where in the vastness of Australia you are – from a remote cattle station to the hub of a big city – there’s a broadband connection for you.
The new National Broadband Network is in the advanced stages of its rollout and now serves millions of customers in both the cities and country areas, and if you’ve got access to the NBN then Southern Phone Broadband has a plan to suit you. Whether it’s a basic plan for casual web browsing and email for $45 a month, or a blazingly fast 100 Mbit/sec plan with unlimited data for $100/month, Southern Phone Broadband fit in with what you need. NBN services can be provided with all the different types of connection technology.
For those in remote areas far from fixed-line services and too far from a mobile phone tower for 4G broadband to be useful, Southern Phone Broadband can connect you to the NBN’s SkyMuster satellite service, which can give you speed up to 25 Mbps and data allowances ranging from 70GB to 300GB, at prices ranging from $38 to $100 per month.
Despite the rollout of the NBN, ADSL broadband is still very much in play, and Southern Phone Broadband has that covered with plans that range from $50 to $80 per month, and 200GB to unlimited data. Customers that connect to ADSL with Southern Phone Broadband will be able to easily switch to the NBN as soon as it arrives in their area, with no activation or termination fees.
When it comes to easy broadband connection, sometimes the mobile network is the best way to go – and Southern Phone Broadband is up to the challenge with two sets of mobile broadband plans. You can go with plans on the Telstra 3G and 4G networks, with data allowances ranging from 5GB to 30GB. Or if you’d prefer the Optus network, you can pick from plans on that 4G service ranging from 8GB to 25GB of data.

Southern Phone Broadband Bundles
Keeping things nice and easy for those who just want to get connected and not worry about the details, Southern Phone offers a range of bundles that give you a home phone service and plan, as well as a modem and a broadband service on NBN, ADSL or satellite. Or if you’d prefer, you can bundle those with a mobile plan and get all your communications needs covered in the one handy package.
The Southern Phone App
To help you keep track of your broadband usage as well as your charges and payments, you can download the free Southern Phone app from the iOS and Android app stores. This gives you the ability to easily keep track of usage on your plan as well as see when your bill is due and pay it directly from the app. You can also get in touch with Southern Phone Broadband’s support team easily, straight from the app. It’s all the essential info in the one handy app.

Southern Phone Review: Connecting Australia Coast to Coast
Over the past few years, everyone who uses mobile phones, home phones and broadband has seen first-hand the benefits that true competition brings. Providers all want your business and hard-earned dollars. Hence, they’ll go to great lengths to come up with deals and plans that will hopefully persuade you away from competitors and onto their network. But what if you leave in an area where you don’t have that much choice when it comes to providers? Southern Phone is trying to fix that.
Southern Phone Broadband FAQs
Do I Need a Special Satellite Dish and Equipment for SkyMuster Satellite Broadband?
Yes – the NBN’s SkyMuster satellite is a special service that operates on a newer and far more versatile range of frequencies compared to old satellite-based equipment you may have used. An NBN technician will install your new equipment once you’ve signed up for a plan.
Does My Existing Modem Work with Southern Phone Broadband NBN?
It depends on several things – mainly the type of NBN connection you’ve got at your premises, and the type of modem you currently have. While those familiar with the ins and outs of the various types of connections and modems might have some success, your best bet is to go with one of the Netcomm modems that Southern Phone Broadband can supply you, which are set up to work perfectly out of the box.
Is Mobile Broadband Right for Me?
Mobile broadband can be incredibly useful if you’re renting short-term, otherwise unable to get the NBN connected or just want the flexibility of a broadband connection that you can take with you. However, if you’re the sort of user that likes doing very data-heavy things online – whether that’s playing games (which can have very large update downloads) or streaming TV and movies through Netflix and others, you’re better off aiming for a connection with a more generous data limit – and that means ADSL or NBN.
