What are Dodo's NBN plans like?

Dodo offers a choice of three NBN plans, either month-to-month or on a 12-month contract. Dodo energy customers can get up to $10 off per month by bundling their services.

  • nbn25. Unlimited data for $65/month. Typical evening speed of 25.00 Mbps.
  • nbn50. Unlimited data for $62/month. Typical evening speed of 50.00 Mbps.
  • nbn100. Unlimited data for $74/month. Typical evening speed of 92.00 Mbps.

Plans come with a $120 set-up fee, waived on a 12-month contract. A Fetch bundle is available for $25 extra per month on the nbn50 and nbn100 12-month contract plans.

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.

While Dodo has some attractive pricing attached to its NBN plans, the speeds on these plans aren't exactly the best around. All of its NBN plans have typical evening speeds that are lower than the average for their speed tiers among the plans in our database.

However, if speed isn't your main concern and you're looking for a budget-friendly plan, Dodo is definitely one to consider.

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. Just keep in mind that you may be hit with potentially slower speeds during busy periods, due to lower 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 nbn50 plan next to other plans from similar value-focused providers, Tangerine and TPG.

ProviderPlan nameTypical evening speedPriceExtra features
Dodonbn5041Mbps$70 per month + $120 modem (no contract)Fetch TV
TangerineXL Speed Boost42Mbps$69.90 per month ($54.90 for the first 6 months) + $129.90 modemNone
TPGNBN5048Mbps$69.90 per month + $99.95 set-up fee (no contract)None

Dodo's nbn50 plan costs about the same as its competitors, with only Tangerine's being cheaper for the first 6 months. It's also comparable as far as set-up fees go, and it does offer a BYO modem option, which Tangerine and TPG also do (although TPG's BYO modem capabilities will depend on your connection type).

As far as speeds go, Dodo is roughly the same as Tangerine, but TPG outperforms it in terms of reliability.

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:

Pros

  • Energy bundling discounts
  • Fetch TV entertainment options
  • Great entry-level prices for NBN plans
  • Call packs available

Cons

  • Poor average speeds on plans
  • Large set-up fee if you don't want a 12-month contract

    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.

      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!

    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
