Exetel's benefits and extras

Exetel review: What we think

Exetel doesn't do anything fancy with its Internet plans, but manages to offer an okay spread of NBN plans all the same. However, it's a little on the expensive side as plans go, especially since its typical evening speeds are a little lower than average.

It's true that Exetel has one of the cheaper home wireless plans on the market, but it's restricted to Basic speeds, limiting its value somewhat. The mobile broadband offerings are more impressive, providing decent value in terms of data for the price.

If you're looking for a plan to suit, Exetel may have what you need, but it's definitely worth comparing it to other providers to see if you might just be able to find something better.

Why should you consider Exetel Internet?

The good stuff

  • Excellent call pack value.
  • Good spread of mobile broadband choices.

The not-so-good stuff

  • Quite expensive plans compared to some competitors.
  • Typical speeds for NBN are on the slow side.
  • Home wireless only has basic speed.

The bottom line: Exetel offers a set of NBN plans that are a little hampered by their high price and less-than-stellar speeds.
