Belong NBN plans

Telstra subsidiary Belong Broadband offers NBN plans that are easy to understand and reasonably priced. Here's what you need to know.

Belong NBN plans explained

Belong offers NBN plans delivered over fixed-line technologies only. These include fibre to the premises (FTTP), fibre to the node (FTTN), fibre to the building (FTTB) and hybrid-fibre coaxial (HFC). Three speed tiers are available, two corresponding to NBN Standard Plus speeds and one aligning with NBN Premium speeds.

On a 12-month contract, here's how Belong's NBN plans break down:

  • NBN Starter. Includes unlimited data for $55 a month.
  • NBN Standard Plus. Includes unlimited data for $65 a month.
  • NBN Premium. Includes unlimited data for $90 a month.

Bear in mind, though, that the connection speed for each NBN tier is only a theoretical maximum. During the peak evening hours of 7pm to 11pm, Belong advises that the following speeds are more typical:

  • Starter plan: 30.00Mbps typical evening speed
  • Standard Plus plan: 40.00Mbps typical evening speed
  • Premium plan: 80.00Mbps typical evening speed

Unlike the majority of broadband providers these days, Belong charges a different monthly rate for its month-to-month and 12-month plans. For the freedom of a month-to-month contract, you'll have to pay an extra $5 a month.

Signing up for a 12-month contract also gets you a free Wi-Fi modem router – a mandatory $60 upfront cost on month-to-month plans. Other than that, though, Belong does not charge any set-up fees for its NBN plans.

On a 12-month contract, you'll also want to be aware that cancelling your service before the full year is up will incur an early termination fee. This fee comes to $240 minus $20 for every month of the contract you've already served.
