Click Broadband NBN and ADSL plans compared

With unlimited data and no-lock-in contracts, Click Broadband aims to provide a simple, no-fuss broadband service at competitive prices.

Click Broadband joins the growing number of Australian telecommunication providers that have entered the local market since the rollout of the NBN (National Broadband Network). Alongside no-contract NBN plans, it also offers ADSL services for Aussies without access to the NBN, though these are only available on fixed 18 month contracts.

Click Broadband NBN Plans

Click Broadband's NBN plans are quite simple, with just three options corresponding to three of the four main NBN speed tiers: Basic (nbn12), Standard Plus (nbn50) and Premium (nbn100). All three plans are delivered on a month-to-month, no-contract basis and include unlimited data.

  • Basic nbn12: $58.88 per month
  • Ultimate nbn50: $67.88 per month
  • Ultimate Plus nbn100: $88.88 per month

Each plan features no set-up fees for standard NBN connections, though you may need to pay extra if you're connecting to the NBN for the first time. The only other upfront cost to worry about is the purchase of an NBN-compatible modem. You can use your own at no extra cost if you already have one, or Click Broadband will sell you a preconfigured NetComm modem for $109.95. Alternatively, you can score the modem for free if you sign up for 18 months instead of a no-lock-in contract.

If you're after a full telecommunications package rather than a standalone Internet service, Click Broadband offers three voice packages for bundling with its NBN plans:

  • Unlimited local and national calls for $10 a month
  • Unlimited local, national and mobile calls for $20 a month
  • Unlimited local, national and mobile calls plus unlimited landline calls to 15 countries for $30 a month

The countries included in the international voice package are: Canada, China, France, Germany, India, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, New Zealand, Philippines, South Africa, Spain, UK, USA and Vietnam.

Click Broadband ADSL plans

For Aussies still waiting on the NBN or living outside the planned rollout of the fibre network, Click Broadband has two basic ADSL plans for getting you online. Both come with unlimited data and have a minimum contract duration of 18 months.

  • Standalone Unlimited ADSL: $58.88 per month
  • Unlimited ADSL with Line Rental bundle: $68.88 per month

Both plans also incur a one-off set-up fee of $99.95. If you need a new modem to go with your ADSL service, Click Broadband will sell you a basic NetComm Wireless NF10WV for $90.05 or a more advanced NetComm Wireless NF18ACV for $160.05.

How does Click Broadband compare?

The simplicity of Click Broadband's plans makes them quite attractive for folks wanting a set-and-forget broadband solution. Unlimited data means no excess usage charges and the no-lock-in contract for its NBN plans gives you the freedom to cancel at any time without penalty.

How do Click Broadband's NBN plans compare?

There's a lot of competition in the entry-level unlimited NBN space and Click Broadband lies roughly in the centre of the pack. Its Basic NBN plan isn't as cheap as offerings from providers like Flip and Exetel, but neither is it as expensive as some of the pricier options on the market. The $0 set-up fees are a nice bonus, too, making it relatively painless to try Click Broadband with minimal sunk costs.

Click Broadband proves more competitive at the Standard Plus speed tier. Here, its Ultimate nbn50 plan edges out top rivals like TPG and MyRepublic, but only from a raw price perspective. Both TPG and MyRepublic bundle in phone services with their nbn50 plans whereas you need to pay extra with Click Broadband. MyRepublic also includes unlimited calls to Australian landlines with its plan, which could be enough to put it ahead if you spend a decent chunk of time on the phone.

Looking to the top tier of NBN service, Click Broadband presents an attractive first impression. Its Ultimate Plus nbn100 plan is one of the cheapest options currently available, both from a monthly price point and in terms of upfront costs thanks to the lack of set-up fees.

How do Click Broadband's ADSL plans compare?

Despite the demand for ADSL services dropping as the NBN rollout progresses, there are still quite a few broadband providers competing for the lion's share of the remaining market. Unfortunately for Click Broadband, many of these providers offer more appealing deals, beating it not only on price but also by offering the freedom of a no-lock-in, month-to-month contract.

For instance, when comparing standalone ADSL services without line rental, Click Broadband is outmatched by cheaper month-to-month offerings from Dodo, AusBBS and Mate Communicate.

The gap shrinks slightly when considering Click Broadband's ADSL and home phone bundle. Nevertheless, it's still markedly more expensive than similar bundles from the likes of Exetel and TPG.

Why should you consider Click Broadband?

Click Broadband's appeal lies in the simplicity of its NBN and ADSL plans. By including unlimited data with all its services, you never have to worry about managing your downloads or paying excess usage fees. The lack of set-up fees and the freedom of a no-lock-in contract on its NBN plans are also welcome features for Aussies wanting a no-fuss broadband service they don't need to commit a year or more of their lives to.

On top of their simplicity, Click Broadband's NBN plans are competitively priced, with its higher-speed plans stacking up respectably against the top contenders in the market.
