QUICK GUIDE: Services - Costs - Extras - Pros & Cons


What services does Boom Broadband offer?

Boom Broadband is a Melbourne-based NBN service provider that services homes across Australia. Boom Broadband offers NBN Fibre and NBN Wireless services. Its plans don’t come with peak and off-peak periods, so you can use your data allowance at anytime. Only downloads count towards data usage and you can upload as much as you want. What also helps is that you don’t have to pay any excess data charges with Boom Broadband NBN plans.

How much does Boom Broadband cost?

Setup fees vary depending on the contract you choose. Opting for a 24 month contract comes with free installation, for a 12 month contract you have to pay $50 as installation fees, and if you don’t want to sign a contract you’ll have to pay $100 in installation fees. By adding just $10 to the monthly rental, you can bundle your Boom Broadband NBN connection with a UNI-V phone. You can use your existing phone. All you have to do is plug it into the UNI-V port, where UNI-V replaces the existing copper PSTN line. Battery backup comes as part of the parcel at no extra cost.

What additional services are included?

What voice options are provided?

Boom Broadband has a range of phone bundle options that can be added to a broadband package. Packages start at $10 a month for the service, with no included calls. There's a $15 option which bundles in unlimited local and national calls, while an additional $25 a month will include all local, national and Australian mobile calls. For customers looking for a phone line but no broadband, Boom also has some options there.

What happens if I exceed my monthly download limit?

Should you use more than your allotted monthly data allowance, Boom Broadband will slow your connection speed to 256Kbps, but there's no concerns about excess data charges.

Pros and cons


  • Simplicity of the NBN. Boom Broadband is al about the NBN, so there's no confusion around connection types.
  • No lock in contracts. You have to pay for installation when you pay month to month, but avoiding long-term contracts isn't always an option for NBN providers.
  • Only downloads are counted. If you upload a lot of YouTube videos, this plan doesn't count uploads towards your monthly data allowance.


  • Limited to NBN areas. If the NBN rollout hasn't hit your area yet, Boom Broadband can't supply you Internet.
