Accord broadband plans compared March 2019

Officeworks is taking on the broadband industry with its Accord-branded NBN plans.

Is Accord right for me?

  • What does Accord offer? Accord deals solely in NBN plans, with options available for regular Aussies as well as Australian businesses.
  • Product highlights: With just three NBN plans to choose from and no monthly data caps, Accord streamlines the process of getting connected to the National Broadband Network.
  • Watch out for: Accord's NBN plans are only available on 12-month contracts, meaning you'll have to pay an early termination fee if you want to cancel the service before the full year is up.

Accord NBN plans

Accord's NBN plans explained

Launched at the tail end of 2018, Accord is the broadband offshoot of the retail chain Officeworks. It deals exclusively in NBN services, offering a simple selection of plans that all come with unlimited data and operate on a 12-month contract.

Simplicity is what Accord aims for with its NBN plans, offering just three options that each include unlimited monthly data and differ only in speed. You can choose between a Standard NBN connection, a Standard Plus connection or a Premium connection, with pricing as follows:

How does Accord compare?

  • More expensive than most of its competitors
  • No month-to-month contract options

While the simplicity of Accord's NBN plans is a welcome change, it doesn't quite justify the premium Accord charges over the competition. Having to commit to a 12-month contract is a big ask, too, especially when so many competitors offer commitment-free, no-lock-in contracts at similar or cheaper rates.

Why should you consider Accord?

Accord's selling point is simplicity and its three basic NBN plans do indeed strip away some of the complexity inherent in other telcos' NBN offerings. Unlimited data and no set-up fees make it easy to see just how much Accord's plans will cost you, no matter how much downloading you engage in.

Unfortunately, Accord's plan pricing errs on the more-expensive side, with many competing providers offering comparable services at a considerably cheaper rate. It's only at the Premium tier of NBN plans that Accord stands tall among the best in the industry and even then you'll have to be willing to commit to 12 months of service rather than go with a no-lock-in contract from one of its rivals.
