Belong keeps it simple by offering unlimited data on all their NBN plans so you don't ever have to worry about any excess usage charges.

Key features

Price: $60 monthly and up.
Technology type: ADSL2+, NBN.
NBN speeds: NBN50, NBN100.
Support: Phone until midnight.

Belong's benefits and extras

  • Free mobile credit. When you sign up to a Belong NBN plan, you get a free mobile SIM with $80 of credit on it. You can then activate a mobile data plan with Belong using this SIM.
  • Modems. All of Belong's plans come with an included modem that will cost you an extra $60. If you buy a 12-month contract, this fee is waived.
  • No extra set-up fees. Aside from the price for the modem, there are no additional set-up fees on Belong plans.

Belong review: What we think

Belong is entirely owned by Telstra, and may be a good choice if you depend upon Telstra's expansive network but don't want to pay its high prices. Belong's plans are heavily weighted towards getting you to commit to a 12-month contract, charging you an extra $5 monthly and making you pay for a modem outright if you don't.

If you're in a metro area or somewhere with reasonable choice, Belong comes up short against its competition. Providers like Optus or TPG will give you better speeds for the same price and include other features as well. If you can stomach its slightly inflated prices, Telstra itself will likely give you more bang for your buck.

Is Belong Internet right for you?

The good stuff

  • A Telstra offshoot.
  • Plans are easy to understand on 12 month contracts.

The not-so-good stuff

  • Speed-capped "Starter" NBN plan.
  • Poor value compared to competitors.

The bottom line: Belong is effectively Telstra's child, offering reasonable services on the Telstra network but without quite reaching its parent's sky-high prices. However, while its plans are simple for the most part, they don't give particularly good value for money.

Keep in mind before selecting a 12 month contract that the NBN is set to be rolled out by the end of 2020.

    If I take up one of your NBN offers and wish to keep my landline, will I need to pay extra for the privilege ?

      Hi Gordon,

      Thanks for your question.

      If you have decided to go with a new provider, generally, you may still keep your old phone number and port it over to the new provider to continue receiving calls made to your existing phone number.

      You may directly get in touch with your new provider to check the requirements for number porting.

      Cheers,
      Anndy

    I have been trying to contact Belong by phone for the last 3 days (3rd to 6th Jan 2017) but no one answers.

      Hi Rob,

      Thanks for reaching out.

      If you are unable to contact Belong by phone, you may want to try getting in touch with their customer support team. Just click any of the “go to site’ button so you’ll be redirected to Belong website. On their home page, there is a button to “chat.”

      Cheers,
      Anndy

    2 Harrison Crescent Yankalilla is a near new home but the nbn has not been connected to the house. I can see wires coiled by the electrical green box by the footpath.

    Could you give an estimation of time frame and basic costs to have the basic nbn installed in the house please.

      Hi Neil,

      I’ve entered your address into our nbn tracker, but there doesn’t seem to be any information on the NBN rollout in your area. I would recommend contacting nbnco directly with your query.

      Thanks,
      Brodie
