Dodo broadband review

Dodo mostly keeps things simple with its Internet plans, focusing on low prices without complicated terms and conditions. It also sells mobile and energy plans.

Our current Finder exclusive offer on Dodo's NBN 50 plan makes it one of the cheapest NBN 50 plans in our database.

Dodo also offers the maximum speed available on its NBN 25 and NBN 50 plans, which is appealing.

If you're looking to sign up to NBN 100, Dodo's deal isn't bad, but because it's speeds aren't the maximum available, you could find better elsewhere.

While Dodo's NBN plans come with no lock-in contract, keep in mind that there is a setup fee involved when you sign up.

Dodo's broadband plans have the following features:

price tag icon

Energy bundling discount

You'll get a $5 monthly discount on your NBN plan for having either a Dodo electricity or gas plan with your account, or a $10 discount if you have both.

phone icon

Call packs

You can get a free home phone line with pay-as-you-go calls for free, or get unlimited local and national calls for $10 more per month, 2,000 minutes to landlines in 25 countries for $15 per month, or 2,000 minutes to landlines and mobiles in 25 countries for $20 per month.

Is Dodo broadband any good? We ask our utilities expert and writer, Sam Baran

Dodo's prices are low, so it's definitely a strong contender if you're looking for a cheap NBN plan to switch to. Its NBN 25 and NBN 50 plans are the ones to look at thanks to their full typical evening speeds.

The value of Dodo's NBN plans increases if you already have a Dodo energy service. But it's probably not worth switching over to Dodo energy just for the discount, since energy is usually far more expensive than Internet bills.

How does Dodo compare?

To give you an idea of how Dodo compares to other providers, we've placed its NBN 50 plan next to other plans from similar value-focused providers, Tangerine and TPG.

ProviderPlan nameTypical evening speedPriceExtra features
Dodonbn5050Mbps$75 per month ($58.10 exclusive for the first 6 months)None
TangerineXL Speed Boost50Mbps$69.90 per month ($54.90 for the first 6 months)None
TPGNBN5050Mbps$69.90 per monthNone

Dodo's NBN 50 plan costs a little more than its competitors when it's not discounted. The main thing that pushes Dodo's costs up is its $60 set up fee.

You have the option to BYO modem with each provider or buy one for an additional cost when you sign up.

As far as speeds go, Dodo is the same as Tangerine and TPG.

If you already have Dodo energy, the $5 or $10 discount can make this plan very competitive compared to others on the market.

Here's a summary of pros and cons with Dodo:


  • Energy bundling discounts
  • Great entry-level prices for NBN plans
  • Call packs available


  • Setup fee

    You show the Dodo Unlimited 50/20 Mbps for $79.90 per month. There is an extra charge of $10 a month to cover all calls. Full set up costs are $232.90.

    The iSelect salesman is offering me the same plan with all calls covered for $79.95. He has not mentioned any set up costs.

    Can he provide me with this service at this price? Should I be careful about the no mention of set up costs?

      Hi Ty,

      Thanks for your enquiry. Unless iSelect has a unique deal with Dodo, it should only be able to offer you the regular Dodo service priced as you cited: $79.90 for 50Mbps, with $10 a month extra for unlimited calls.

      As for the setup costs, it’s possible the iSelect offer was for a 24-month contract which waives the setup fee. The minimum cost you mentioned is correct for the month-to-month contract.

      I hope this helps, but please feel free to ask any more questions you have!

      Hi Steff,

      Thanks for your question.

      Please note that you’ve come through to we are an Australian financial comparison website and general information service, not actually Dodo.

      For the Dodo ADSL2 + Unlimited Regional plan, the base amount is $59.90 but you will also need to pay for the monthly home phone line which is $29.90, so that makes the total amount of your monthly subscription to $89.80 for the plan.
