Compared to other providers on Finder, Dodo's NBN25 and NBN50 plans are actually about $10/month cheaper than the average. If you aren't careful, though, those low costs can rise quickly given all of the extras like call packs that Dodo allows you to tack on. Plus, you get what you pay for: with cheaper prices comes Dodo's lower typical evening speeds, for example its NBN50 plan has a typical speed of 41.00Mbps vs. the ACCC average of 42.6Mbps.

Watch out for the NBN25 plan with its monthly data cap of just 101GB, which seriously diminishes its value.

When it comes to mobile broadband though, you can't get much better value in terms of data per dollar than Dodo (about 80c per 1GB on both plans), though it does charge dearly for exceeding your monthly limits - a whopping $15 per extra 1GB. Apart from that, it provides an unusual incentive to switch over to its electricity and gas services in exchange for a discount on your Internet plan.

Dodo's extra features

On top of the raw data you get for your broadband plans, Dodo offers the following extra features:

  • Call packs. There's a number of call packs you can add to your Dodo Internet connection. For $10 per month, you get unlimited domestic calls, including to mobiles; $15 per month gives 2,000 minutes to landlines in 25 countries; and $20 per month gives 2,000 minutes to landlines and mobiles in those countries.
  • Modems. When purchasing a new plan, Dodo will include a fresh modem as part of a $120 set-up fee. Signing up to a 12-month contract will remove that fee from your bill.
  • Fetch TV. For $25 or $35 extra per month, you can get a Fetch Mini or Mighty box respectively to attach to your TV. Fetch Mini can pause and rewind live TV, while Fetch Mighty can record up to six shows simultaneously. You can purchase additional channel packs for your Fetch box once you have it. These are only available on contract plans.
  • Energy bundles. Dodo has an unusual deal where you'll save an extra $5 per month on your Internet bills if you bundle it with its electricity and gas options. This requires you to change from your existing energy provider to Dodo.


Is Dodo Internet right for you?

The good stuff

  • High value mobile broadband.
  • Fetch TV entertainment options.

The not-so-good stuff

  • Poor average speeds on plans.
  • Only 101GB of data on cheapest plan.
  • Expensive add-ons and excess data.

The bottom line: Dodo's plans are cheap enough on the surface, but typically don't have particularly great connection speeds. If you want mobile broadband, though, it's hard to beat Dodo in data per dollar.

Do I need a new modem to sign up to Dodo?

Do I need a new modem to sign up to Dodo?

Dodo does not give the option of providing your own modem, so you'll have to get a new modem when you sign up to its plans. The modem will be included as part of a $120 set-up fee Dodo charges, but you can get it for free as part of a 12-month contract.

Can I cancel my Dodo NBN plan?

You may cancel your Dodo NBN plan without charge so long as you're on a month-to-month plan. If you signed up to a 12-month contract, you will have to pay $8 for each month remaining on the contract (e.g. $8 x 11 = $88 for 11 months left).

Do Dodo's Internet plans include calls?

By default, your NBN connection will come with a phone connection. You can buy one of Dodo's $10, $15 or $20 per month call packs to get unlimited national calls to landlines and mobiles or 2,000 minutes of talk to international landlines and mobiles in 25 countries.

What happens if I exceed my data allowance?

If you go over your limit on Dodo fixed-line data capped plans, you won't be charged for extra usage, but you will have your connection slowed down to a 256kbps crawl.

Exceeding your data allowance on a mobile broadband plan will let you get up to 5GB of additional data at $15 per GB before your service gets cut off.

    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!

      Regards,

      Matt

      Hi Steff,

      Thanks for your question.

      Please note that you’ve come through to finder.com.au 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.

      Cheers,
      May

    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.

      ChesterAugust 9, 2016

      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.

      Cheers!
      Chester

      Hi Emma,

      Thanks for your question.

      As finder.com.au 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.

      Cheers,

    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,
      Brodie
