Is Bendigo Telco right for me?

  • What does Bendigo Telco offer? Bendigo Telco offers NBN and ADSL broadband plans as well as mobile broadband plans operating on the Optus 4G network. That same network also powers Bendigo Telco's SIM-only mobile plans.
  • Product highlights: Bendigo Telco's 12-month mobile broadband plans represent solid value, and their social initiatives redirect a portion of Bendigo Telco's profits back to local communities.
  • Watch out for: Bendigo Telco charges more for its NBN and ADSL plans than most other telcos out there. Its basic ADSL plans don't include line rental, either, so you'll need to factor that in if you don't already have an active phone service with another telco.

Though it might sound like a small, local-only business, Bendigo Telco is actually part of an Australia-wide organisation made up of the following telecommunication providers that supply Internet and phone services across the country:

  • Bendigo Telco
  • Tastel
  • South East QLD Telco
  • Central Coast Telco
  • Goulburn Valley Telco
  • VicWest Telco

Despite the different names, each of these providers offers the exact same services. This makes it easy to compare all their broadband plans in one fell swoop, with the results relevant regardless of where you live. However, for simplicity, we'll be referring to Bendigo Telco from here on out.

Bendigo Telco provides both standalone ADSL plans and home phone and ADSL bundles.

The latter comes with home phone line rental and pay-as-you-go calls bundled in, so no existing service is required.
