What services does Dodo offer?

Dodo broadband offers NBN, ADSL and ADSL2+ plans as well as home phone, mobile phone and mobile broadband services. Dodo also offers various bundling options including home phone, mobile and broadband packages as well as some neat optional bonuses like an Xbox One, Microsoft Surface 3 tablet and Fetch TV.


How much does Dodo cost?

The pricing of Dodo's NBN plans (FTTP, FTTN and FTTB) varies depending on your choice of speed, data allowance, contract length and bundled inclusions. Customers have the option of 10GB, 50GB or an Unlimited data allowance per month. When you exceed your monthly data allowance, Dodo charges $2 per GB for the first 10GB and then slows your connection to 64kbps/64kbps for the remainder of the month.  Base plans start at the lowest speed tier (12Mbps download, 1Mbps upload), with an option to increase the connection speed to 25/5Mbps or 100/40Mbps for an extra $10 or $30 per month respectively.

ADSL2+ plan pricing varies on monthly data inclusions, contract length and bundled inclusions.  Dodo offers plans with 10GB, 50GB and an Unlimited monthly data allowance.  Like the NBN plans, Dodo also charges for data used when you exceed your monthly data allowance at $2 per GB for the first 10GB.  A number of bundle options are available for ADSL2+ plans including an Xbox 360 bundle for $10 per month, Xbox One bundle for $30 per month or a Microsoft Surface 3 bundle for $25 per month.  Home phone line rental is also available at $29.90 per month.

Dodo broadband offers three contract length options for its NBN and ADSL2+ plans: 1 month, 12 month and 24 month. There is no connection fee for the 24 month option, however, the 1 and 12 month options incur a one-off $99 and $69 connection fee respectively.


What additional services are included?

What voice options are provided?

All Dodo NBN plans include a phone line as part of the plan. Customers can an unlimited voice pack which includes unlimited local, national and mobile calls for an extra $10 per month. There are also international landline and mobile phone packs available for purchase.

ADSL2+ plans require an active home phone line service. Dodo offers a bundled home phone line rental for an extra $29.90 per month.  Customers can also choose an unlimited voice pack which includes unlimited local, national and mobile calls for an extra $10 per month. International landline and mobile phone packs are also available for purchase.

What happens if I exceed my monthly download limit?

Dodo charges $2 per GB when you exceed your monthly download limit for your first 10GB of extra data (maximum of $20 GB in excess data charges). The connection speed is then reduced to 64Kbps download, 64Kbps upload thereafter.


Pros and cons

Pros

  • No off-peak/on-peak data. Dodo doesn't mess around with on-peak and off-peak restrictions. Though this is quite common these days, not everyone has adopted this approach.
  • Range of bundle options. Dodo broadband offers a range of bundling plans which include devices like theXbox 360, Xbox One and the Microsoft Surface 3.

Cons

  • Excess data charges. Dodo charges an excess data fee when customers exceed their monthly data allowance at $2/GB.

      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!

      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,
      May

    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

    Do the packages for Fetch TV include Lifestyle and UKTV

    • Staff
      Brodie | September 16, 2015

      Hi there Cheryl,

      Fetch TV’s entertainment package included UKTV but not Lifestyle. However, there are a number of channels of a similar vein, for example, Style, Food Network, Nat Geo People and the Travel Channel.

      Thanks,

      Brodie

    I’ve just signed up to dodo fetch tv. In recorded some programs last night. When i went to play them today they wouldn’t work. Just a blank screen. Any ideas?

      Hello, Lisa

      It looks like many people are having a similar problem. I would recommend contacting Dodo’s customer service team. They’re likely to tell you ti format your Fetch TV box – if I’m correct in assuming you don’t have all that much recorded, this shouldn’t be too much of a worry for you. Alternatively, you could wait for the next firmware update to be released.

      Thanks,

      Brodie
