Aussie Broadband review: What we think

Key features

Optional extras: Fetch TV, national and local calls.
Support: Phone until midnight.

Aussie Broadband has been around since 2008, and it has a lot to recommend the company. Its plans all offer great typical evening speeds, with an average of 86.00Mbps on its premium plan. It offers more transparency around its performance than any other Australian provider, with published bandwidth graphs showing how much broadband its customers use versus how much they've purchased.

With Aussie Broadband, you can tailor your own Internet plans, though it's unclear whether this allows for greater value and may depend on your personal circumstances. Finally, its support team is entirely based in Australia, which may be a draw for customers who have had a bad experience with overseas support.

Aussie Broadband's benefits and extras

  • Fetch TV. For an extra $10 per month, you'll get access to a Fetch Mini TV box, which can record and rewind live TV. For $15 per month, you can get a Fetch Mighty, which can record 6 shows simultaneously. Extra Fetch channel packs are available from $6 per month.
  • Modem. While Aussie Broadband doesn't have any intrinsic set-up fees, it also doesn't offer contracts with modems included. This means that if you need a new modem, you'll have to shell out $$149 plus shipping to get one suitable for the NBN.
  • Call packs. All NBN connections come with a phone line with pay-as-you-go calls. If you're looking for more than that, you can get unlimited local and national landline calls for $10 per month, or unlimited local and national landlines and mobiles for $20 per month. You won't receive any free international inclusions on these packs.
  • Seniors plans. For customers who are over the age of 60, Aussie Broadband has a set of three basic NBN plans available (TES 11Mbps). They range in price from $49 to $64 depending on what call inclusions you're looking for and all provide unlimited data.
  • No excess data charge. When you tailor your own NBN plan and take a data limit, you won't be charged for exceeding it. Instead, Aussie Broadband will slow down your Internet connection to a crawl until the month rolls over.

Is Aussie Broadband right for you?

The good stuff

  • Custom plans with choice of speed and data.
  • 100% Australia-based support team.
  • Great speed on all plans.
  • High transparency on network performance.

The not-so-good stuff

  • Mobile broadband only available as a SIM.
  • Questionable value on limited data custom plans.

The bottom line: Aussie Broadband has the widest array of NBN plans on offer since they hand customers the ability to make their own custom plan. Their prebuilt plans don't break the bank and have a solid performance when it comes to speed.
