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 and month-to-month contracts. 24-month contracts include a free router and no set-up 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 all four tiers of NBN connections: Basic (nbn12), Standard (nbn25), Standard Plus (nbn50) and Premium (nbn100). Fixed wireless plans feature the same range of options excluding the Premium connection tier.

Satellite plans, meanwhile, support just two connections: Basic and Standard. Data caps start at 10GB peak/100GB off-peak and go up to 130GB peak/150GB 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 fibre plans start at $49.95 a month for 100GB and a Basic NBN connection and peak at $119 a month for unlimited data and a Premium NBN connection, satellite connections begin at $32.95 a month for 10GB/100GB and a Basic NBN connection and go all the way up to $204.95 a month for 130GB/150GB and a Standard NBN connection.

If you prefer the flexibility of a month-to-month contract, you'll also have to fork out a setup fee of $60 with an additional $129 outlay if you need to bundle in an NBN-ready router.
