ANT Communications is bringing the NBN to the bush. Compare its range of fibre and satellite plans right here.


What you need to know about ANT Communications' NBN plans

Based in an area of regional Australia where broadband is only available via satellite, ANT Communications knows what it's like to lack adequate Internet services. Dissatisfied with what other telcos were offering, ANT set out to improve broadband coverage across rural and regional Australia, building a network of ADSL, satellite and now NBN services for customers both inside and outside major metropolitan cities.

To deliver high-speed Internet to as much of Australia as possible, ANT offers wireless and satellite connections to the National Broadband Network in addition to the standard underground fibre lines. While these services lack the raw speed of fibre, they make up for it with greater coverage throughout the less populated regions of Australia.

No matter which technology you're eligible for, all ANT's NBN plans are available on 24-month, 6-month prepaid and month-to-month contracts. 24-month contracts include a free router and no setup fee but will incur an early cancellation fee if you want to end your service before the two years are up.

What are the different ANT Communications NBN plans?

ANT's NBN plans are divided into fibre, fixed wireless and satellite services, with your address determining which of the three you have access to. The fibre plans on offer support speeds of 12/1Mbps, 25/5Mbps, 50/20Mbps and 100/40Mbps, with a choice of 100GB, 500GB or unlimited data caps. Fixed wireless plans feature the same range of options excluding the 100/40Mbps connection speed.

Satellite plans, meanwhile, support just two speeds: 12/1Mbps and 25/5Mbps. Data caps start at 5GB peak/50GB off-peak and go up to 70GB peak/80GB off-peak.

How much do ANT Communications' NBN plans cost?

Delivering Internet to rural Australia doesn't come cheap and you can expect to pay a premium if you live outside the wired NBN roll-out region. While standard fibre plans start at $49.95 a month for 100GB at 12/1Mbps and peak at $89.95 a month for unlimited data at 100/40Mbps, satellite connections begin at $32.95 a month for 5GB/50GB at 12/1Mbps and go all the way up to $204.95 a month for 70GB/80GB at 25/5Mbps.

If you prefer the flexibility of a 6-month or month-to-month contract, you'll also have to fork out a setup fee of $60 with an additional $105 outlay if you need to bundle in an NBN-ready router.
