Is Dodo right for me?

  • What does Dodo offer? Dodo supplies NBN, ADSL and mobile broadband services as well as Fetch TV bundles and SIM-only mobile plans.
  • Product highlights: Dodo's mobile broadband plans offer more bang for your buck than nearly every other option out there, and you'd be hard-pressed to find cheaper standalone ADSL plans anywhere.
  • Watch out for: On a month-to-month contract, Dodo charges additional set-up and modem fees. Plus, Dodo's cheap standalone ADSL plans require you to have an active phone line (which will cost about $30 a month extra).

Dodo NBN and ADSL plans

Dodo broadband plans explained

For NBN customers, Dodo supports all the standard access technologies including fibre to the premises (FTTP), fibre to the node (FTTN), fibre to the building (FTTB), hybrid-fibre coaxial (HFC) and fixed wireless connections. However, it does not support all tiers of NBN speeds. It only offers Standard (nbn25) and Standard Plus (nbn50) speeds on its unlimited plan and limits its capped plans to the Standard tier alone.

Dodo also offers standalone ADSL plans as well as ADSL and home phone bundles. While the former are significantly cheaper, they require you to already have an active phone line. However, this doesn't need to be provided by Dodo, so if you have a landline phone service with another Internet provider, Dodo's standalone ADSL plans will work just fine.

Dodo mobile broadband plans

Dodo mobile broadband plans explained

Dodo has an extensive range of mobile broadband plans, offering both post-paid and prepaid plans. All services are delivered over the Optus 4G network and come with free delivery of a Dodo SIM card for accessing the service through a phone, tablet or any other SIM-compatible device.

Dodo extras

On all Dodo's NBN and ADSL plans, purchase of an NBN-ready modem is compulsory. This is bundled in for free on 24-month contracts, but you'll need to pay an upfront fee of $50 on a 12-month contract. On a month-to-month contract, you'll have to pay $109 for the modem.

How does Dodo compare?

Dodo's NBN, ADSL and mobile broadband plans provide plenty of opportunity for comparison, but that doesn't always work in its favour.

Dodo NBN plan comparison

  • Typical evening speeds are among the fastest on the market
  • Plans only support NBN speed tiers up to Standard Plus (nbn50)
  • Set-up and modem fees on month-to-month contracts are steeper than the competition

While most NBN providers roll out ever-larger data caps to satisfy growing Internet appetites, Dodo takes the opposite approach by offering smaller 101GB plans alongside its more-common unlimited plan. It's one of only a handful of providers to do so, giving it an advantage simply due to lack of competition.

Dodo ADSL plan comparison

  • Standalone ADSL plans are some of the cheapest around
  • ADSL and home phone bundles are reasonably priced compared to the competition

Dodo's ADSL plans immediately stand out as some of the cheapest on the market. While this is certainly a compelling point in the telco's favour, it's important to put the pricing in context. Dodo's standard ADSL plans don't include line rental, and since line rental is necessary for the provision of ADSL Internet, you'll need to factor its cost in, too.

Dodo mobile broadband plans comparison

  • Include more data at a considerably cheaper price than virtually all competing plans
  • 12-month plans offer even more bang for your buck

Why should you consider Dodo?

Dodo's appeal lies in its cornering of the low-cost, low-usage broadband market. Few Internet providers offer plans with data caps of 100GB or less these days, making Dodo one of your only options if you're looking for a barebones service at an equivalently pared-back price.

Standalone ADSL is another of Dodo's specialties. Provided you already have an active landline phone service, Dodo's 50GB and unlimited ADSL plans are among the cheapest currently available.

Dodo is also one of the only providers to offer broadband and entertainment bundles with the streaming service Fetch. These bundles provide a means of consolidating your Internet, pay TV and even phone costs into a single bill, simplifying the payment process and potentially saving you money over juggling separate services.

    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.

    Hello. I’m a new dodo customer. Just signed up with them with NBN and lucky me I have it now activated with the help of dodos responsible technician. Its just within 1 week or after and Im all set. Just wondering about the Dodo fetch tv. I know Dodo is designed for budget conscious people but why there is one time activation fee included on each TV? I want my 4 tvs to get the fetch service but it would be 4 times for the one time activation.

      Hello Megan.

      Thanks for your question.

      The reason why an activation fee is required, DoDo will provide you a fetch TV box with every activation request made. That way you will have a clear signal whenever you will be using the fetch TV box.

      Hope this helps.

      Hi Emma,

      Thanks for your question.

      As is a comparative financial service, we can’t actually recommend one specific service or product to our users as the best option depends entirely on your own preferences and needs.

      Nevertheless, you can compare your broadband bundle options on this page. You may discuss your options directly with the service provider featured on that page by clicking the “Enquire now” or “Go to site” button.

      Hope this helps.

    I have the broadband unlimited plan with dodo and apple tv connected….do I still turn off the wifi if I’m not watching the apple tv…I’m worried that if I switch off the wifi I will loose all my setting….it took me ages to set up due to dodo blocking normal setting up of apple tv.

      Hi Tanjak,

      Except for power consumption, there’s no reason to switch your modem off overnight. Even so, switching your modem off will not delete its settings. You would have to perform a factory reset to delete any settings you’ve changed.

      Hope that answers your question,

      Thanks Brodie it did answer my question… service provided said I should turn off my modem when not using it.
