69% of new Aussie Broadband customers are getting an NBN 100 or up.

Aussie Broadband recently released its half-year results for FY24 which explained how residential customers were signing up to the 3 fastest NBN plans available.

This comes after NBN released its new pricing framework at the tail end of 2023.

Several providers reciprocated by making faster NBN plans cheaper - NBN 100, NBN 250 and NBN 1000.

At the same time, they also increased the cost of slower speed tiers such as NBN 50.

Aussie Broadband: NBN 50 vs NBN 100

For example, Aussie Broadband's NBN 50 plan used to cost $79 a month. Now it's priced at $85 a month.

Its NBN 100/20 also went down in price. It costs $95 a month instead of $99.

This puts the price difference between the 2 plans at $10 a month instead of $20.

NBN 50 is still the most popular speed tier in Australia, but the gap is slowly shrinking.

It used to be that 62% of Aussies were signed up to an NBN 50 plan, but now the number's gone down to 42.5% as per the ACCC's last report.

NBN 100 is currently the second most popular speed tier. It's usually good for households of 3-4 people or heavy internet users.

Here's a full list of Aussie Broadband's price changes to see if you're keen to sign up for its faster NBN plans.
