Best cheap Telstra broadband plan

If you're looking for the most affordable Telstra broadband plan that still provides decent service, the Essential bundle is the way to go. With 100GB of monthly data, it's suitable for general web browsing and some light video streaming. If you're connecting via the NBN, Telstra promises impressive typical minimum Internet speeds of 20.00 Mbps during the peak hours of 7:00pm to 11:00pm.

To top it off, the Essential plan comes bundled with a phone service and unlimited local, national and Australian mobile calls at no extra cost.

Best value-for-money Telstra broadband plan

You won't find better bang for your buck from Telstra than with its Unlimited plan. Packing unlimited monthly data, it's more than capable of handling its fair share of Netflix bingeing, online gaming and anything else you can throw at it. Best of all, it comes with a speedy Standard Plus broadband connection on the NBN with typical evening download speeds of 40.00 Mbps. This is fast enough to satisfy the average Aussie, and you should have no trouble streaming multiple Netflix or YouTube videos at the same time.

Best Telstra broadband entertainment bundle

Combining your phone, Internet and entertainment services into a single bill can make life a lot easier, and with Telstra's Unlimited + Streaming bundle, you don't have to spend a small fortune just to enjoy the convenience of an all-in-one broadband package.

Along with the freedom of an unlimited data cap and a swift Standard Plus NBN connection, the Unlimited Entertainment bundle gets you the new Telstra TV streaming box plus a 24-month subscription to a Foxtel Now Starter Pack of your choice. Featuring channels like showcase, FOX8 and BBC First plus a huge range of on-demand TV shows, Foxtel Now makes for a compelling addition to Telstra's already solid Internet and home phone service.
