Dodo NBN review: Our verdict

You might be familiar with Dodo from the days of ADSL, but its NBN plans aren't too shabby either.

Dodo's prices put it in line with average NBN prices on Finder, and you can save a further $10 a month when you bundle your internet plan with a Dodo Energy plan.

Dodo NBN may be right for you if

  • You'd like an affordable NBN plan with decent sign-up discounts for new customers.
  • You're interested in bundling internet and energy with one provider.

While Dodo NBN has a lot going for it, consider

  • Its NBN 100 and 250 plans do not offer maximum typical evening speeds. You could find a better speed and price combo elsewhere.

Value for money

Dodo's plans are in line with the average NBN plan on Finder thanks to its sign-up discounts on almost all plans.

Dodo offers a BYO modem option, so you don't have to fork out for an additional modem if you already have one.

Otherwise, you can grab one from Dodo for $99, which is cheaper than the average modem cost on Finder by around $40.

speedometer icon

Performance

In December 2022, Dodo shared the 8th rank (out of 12 providers) with iPrimus, in the ACCC Broadband Performance Report for download speeds during busy hours of the day (7pm–11pm). It delivered maximum speeds 96.9% of the time.

  • Why this matters: The ACCC Report allows customers to see which NBN providers are delivering the speeds they've advertised, as a measure of reliability.

Dodo's performance in these reports has improved in 2022, after ranking towards the lower end in 2021.

customer service icon

Customer service

Dodo has several ways for you to get in touch with its customer support team, but only on weekdays. There are no weekend customer support options.

You can do the following:

  • Ring up the Dodo call centre between 9am–6pm AEST on weekdays
  • Reach out via live chat on its website or sling the customer support team an email
  • Log in to your account and submit a support request
  • Visit Dodo's support page for frequently asked questions
  • Leave a message on its Twitter or Facebook social media accounts

Bonus features

Dodo's NBN plans have just a couple of optional bonuses.

What if I'm moving house?
You can select a date during the sign-up process for when you'd like your new Dodo plan to be activated. Keep in mind that it could take up to 20 business days to get connected.

Make sure to give your current provider a heads-up in case there's a notice period to account for. No one wants to end up paying 2 NBN bills.

    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
