What bundles does Foxtel Broadband offer?

Foxtel Broadband includes an ADSL2+ broadband connection, a home phone line and a Foxtel TV subscription. (Note that even if you have a cable connection for Foxtel itself, the broadband connection will be over telephone copper, not the cable. If ADSL2+ is not offered in your area, you'll be connected to ADSL if it is available. As with any broadband service, your actual speed will vary.)

Every Foxtel Broadband plan includes these features:

  • A Foxtel iQ2 box to receive and record Foxtel channels.
  • A Foxtel Hub Wi-Fi modem/router.
  • The Entertainment Pack, which includes 45 channels. You can add additional TV packages (such as the Drama or Sports packs) for an extra monthly fee. The full Platinum HD bundle includes all Foxtel's channel bundles.
  • Free voicemail and caller number display for your phone line.
  • Unmetered access to Foxtel Go online catch-up via your iQ box for all channels you subscribe to. This means viewing those shows won't count against your monthly download allowance. (Be aware that not every single show appears on Go.)

The data and call inclusions will vary depending on which package you select. The basic bundles are listed below. You can choose between a 12 or 24 month contract.

Frequently asked questions

Is the data included in Foxtel Broadband's deals divided by off-peak and on-peak?

No, Foxtel Broadband do not have off-peak and on-peak limits.

Does Foxtel Broadband allow me to keep my current home phone number?

So long as you're not moving to a different area, this shouldn't be an issue, but check with a customer service representative before going ahead with the sale.

What happens if I go over my data allowance?

On the 100GB plan, your broadband speeds will be shaped to 256Kbps -- OK for browsing but too slow for video or downloading large files. On the unlimited plan, this isn't an issue.
