What you need to know about Barefoot Telecom NBN plans

Barefoot Telecom is an Australian broadband provider offering NBN plans, as well as connections to ADSL infrastructure. Barefoot is committed to Australian service, with a customer support network that's 100% based in Australia.

The provider has also committed to only offering month-to-month plans without any lock-in contracts, so if you are unhappy with the company's performance you can change providers to suit your needs.

For potential NBN customers, Barefoot Telecom provides connections over FTTP, FTTN and FTTB connection types, as well as HFC. Fixed wireless customers can also get a connection, although the Premium NBN speed tier is not supported.

To keep things simple, there are no activation or setup fees, and you can bring your own compatible modem. If you do need a new modem to connect to the NBN, Barefoot does sell an AC1600 modem router for $149 to its customers.

What NBN plans does Barefoot Telecom offer?

Barefoot Telecom's NBN plans support all the core NBN infrastructure technologies: fibre to the premises (FTTP), fibre to the node (FTTN), fibre to the building (FTTB), hybrid-fibre coaxial (HFC) and fixed wireless. They also span the four main NBN speed tiers, from Basic all the way up to Premium. Like most providers, though, Barefoot only supports Basic and Standard speed tiers on fixed wireless connections.

Since all Barefoot's NBN plans come with unlimited monthly data, there are just four plans to pick from:

  • NBN Lite. Includes a Basic NBN connection for $59 a month.
  • NBN Mid. Includes a Standard NBN connection for a month.
  • NBN Max. Includes a Standard Plus connection for $69 a month.
  • NBN Ultra. Includes a Premium connection for $89 a month.

Those monthly fees are the only costs you need to worry about on Barefoot's NBN plans since the telco doesn't charge any set-up or activation fees. The only upfront payment you'll need to consider is the price of a new modem-router, should you not already have one. For $149, Barefoot will bundle in the Netcomm NF18ACV modem-router, which supports both the 2.4GHz and 5GHz wireless bands along with featuring two telephone ports for connecting VoIP handsets.

For a more complete telecommunications package, Barefoot's NBN bundle plans combine its NBN plans above with a Voice over IP (VoIP) phone service. This service includes unlimited local, national and mobile calls within Australia, and comes with the option of porting your existing phone number or receiving a new one from Barefoot Telecom.

Barefoot's four NBN bundle plans are as follows:

  • NBN Bundle Lite. Includes a Basic NBN connection for $68 a month.
  • NBN Bundle Mid. Includes a Standard NBN connection for a month.
  • NBN Bundle Max. Includes a Standard Plus connection for $78 a month.
  • NBN Bundle Ultra. Includes a Premium connection for $98 a month.

Like its standard NBN plans, Barefoot charges no set-up fees on its bundle plans. You also have the option of purchasing the Netcomm NF18ACV modem-router for $149 if you don't already have a VoIP-compatible modem-router of your own.
