Bendigo Telco started back in 2000, servicing local companies and residents of the Bendigo area. Now it extends far beyond that, selling NBN plans to wider Australia.

Bendigo's plans really don't provide a lot of value, considering that they don't even provide unlimited data. Typical evening speeds are below average for both its NBN50 plan (Mbps vs. the ACCC averages of 49.4Mbps) and you'll get hit with a relatively hefty set-up fee for the modem.

That said, Bendigo Telco continues to support businesses in Bendigo, so if you like its local community support that might help sway you towards it.

Bendigo Telco extra features

  • Home phone.Add on a home phone line to your NBN plan for $10. Includes unlimited local, national and Australian mobile calls.

Should you go with Bendigo?

Pros

  • Community support. Bendigo Telco continues to support local businesses in the Bendigo area.

Cons

  • High prices. Bendigo's plans are fairly expensive across the board and don't provide great speeds.
  • Limited data. You can't get unlimited data plans from Bendigo, which could be a problem if you have multiple people in the household who love data.

Summary: Bendigo Telco still supports its local community but sells fairly expensive Internet plans.
