Barefoot Telecom has brought its simple to understand plans to ADSL connections.


What you need to know about Barefoot Telecom ADSL plans

Barefoot Telecom is a broadband provider committed to delivering simple, affordable broadband to Australians. The company offers a range of ADSL2+ plans and bundles with a home phone line included as well as simple NBN broadband plans.

All Barefoot Telecom ADSL2+ plans include unlimited data, no lock-in contracts and no upfront fees. Barefoot is also committed to delivering 100% local, Australian service to its customers, with multiple channels for its customers to reach its customer support staff.

What are the different Barefoot Telecom ADSL bundles?

Barefoot offers both standalone ADSL plans and home phone and ADSL bundles to residents across metro and regional areas of Australia. While the only pre-requisite for its ADSL bundles is that you live in an area where the copper network is still active, to purchase its standalone ADSL plans you'll need to already be paying for home phone line rental with another provider. In other words, Barefoot's standalone ADSL plans are not the same as naked DSL plans.

For a standalone ADSL service, there are two options available based on where you live:

  • Metro Ultra ADSL. Includes unlimited data for $49 a month.
  • Regional Ultra ADSL. Includes unlimited data for $59 a month.

For a home phone and ADSL bundle, meanwhile, your options are as follows:

  • Metro Ultra Bundle. Includes unlimited data, unlimited local and national calls and 40c/min mobile calls for $69 a month.
  • Regional Ultra Bundle. Includes unlimited data, unlimited local and national calls and 40c/min mobile calls for $99 a month.

While you won't have to pay any set-up fees on Barefoot's standalone ADSL plans, you may have to cover a connection fee if you don't currently have an active phone line on Telstra's network. If you're transferring an existing but inactive telephone service to Barefoot and the process doesn't require a Telstra technician to come out, this fee comes to $59. If a technician does need to get their hands dirty you'll be looking at $169, while getting a whole new telephone line installed will set you back $299.

If you need a modem-router to go with your ADSL plan or bundle, Barefoot will sell you the Netcomm NF18ACV for $149. This modem-router is NBN-ready too, so you can keep using it when you eventually upgrade to the NBN.
