The price then goes up to $129 after six months. There's no lock-in contract to stress about either.

Keep in mind that NBN 250 plans are only available to limited customers with an FTTP or HFC connection.

How to find the best NBN plan

It can be confusing when you're trying to compare NBN plans if you're not totally familiar with all the technical jargon, but for most users we find you can simplify the process massively by answering the following questions:

Do you have a provider preference? The NBN delivers broadband equally to all without bias or preference, but many of us are comfortable with known brand names, or have existing mobile or telco deals that can be bundled in with a fresh NBN connection. However, there's often an element of the lazy tax at play here, because the big incumbents often rely on customers sticking with them regardless. If you want to save money on your NBN connection, it's well worth looking around the smaller and hungrier competitor brands.

Do you need a new modem?
If you're connecting to the NBN for the first time or if you've had your existing modem for a while, chances are high that you'll need a new modem. If you're just switching between NBN providers, you could probably save by sticking to your current modem. Check the total minimum cost of a plan, especially for month-to-month plans. If it's higher than the plan cost, then the cost of the modem is probably included – either that or they're charging an activation or switchover fee.

What speeds do you need?
This is a more detailed topic which we've expanded on further down in the guide, but consider how many users will access your service and what they'll do. If you're a single person who only skims emails once a day then a basic plan is fine, but a bigger family that loves Netflix streaming and online gaming will probably need something faster.

What speeds should you expect?
Here, you're stuck with less "choice" and more "reality of the NBN build", with those on Fibre to the Premises (FTTP) having the widest range of choice, followed by Hybrid Fibre Coaxial (HFC NBN). The precise nature of your connection will limit your speed choices. If you enter your address into our Broadband Plan Finder™, you'll only be shown NBN plans that are available for your premises. What you want to look at here is the "typical evening speed", because that's usually when the NBN is busiest. Some providers offer cheaper plans, but it's often at the cost of a low typical evening speed.

How much data do you need?
This is entirely personal; if you only go online very intermittently then a plan with a capped data quantity might be fine to save a few dollars. The reality across most NBN plans is that unlimited data has fast become the norm even for lower-cost plans and buying an unlimited plan does bring with it peace of mind. You quite literally cannot go over the limit, after all.

Are long contracts worth it?
Anyone who's had to sign up for an Internet plan in the last decade probably got signed up for a 12- or 24-month contract, so you might think that's the same for NBN plans. However, the vast majority of plans offered these days are instead on a rolling month-by-month basis, which makes it super easy to switch providers if you're unhappy for any reason. The one reason you may want to consider a longer-term plan is if your provider is willing to cut down or eliminate connection fees or the cost of a new NBN-ready modem if you need one. If you're planning to stay with that provider for the length of the contract anyway that could represent a significant saving.

How much do you want to pay?
Yeah, we know. "As little as possible" is the answer everyone gives. While you shouldn't overpay for your NBN by any means, setting a budget will let you balance that cost against your needs. If you're going online solo and briefly, a cheap plan is fine, but again if your needs are more extensive, allow more in your budget to make sure you get a plan that really satisfies your desire for fast broadband.

With those questions answered, you're ready to compare NBN plans to find the best one for you.
