- 12-month contract on bundled entertainment plans with high early exit fees
While it's primarily known for its entertainment packs, you can also grab an NBN plan from Foxtel as a standalone plan or bundled with a streaming pack.
There's no real advantage to getting it bundled - the cost is the same as getting the plan and the pack separately - but you do get pretty decent speeds with Foxtel's NBN plans.
Foxtel NBN could be right for you if:
However, keep in mind that Foxtel:
Foxtel's standalone NBN plans are priced around the Finder average for their respective speed tiers.
You can bring your own modem or purchase one from Foxtel for $140, which is above the Finder average cost of $118.
You can bundle the NBN plan with the following 5 entertainment plans:
Since Foxtel is not a primarily NBN broadband provider, it is not in the latest ACCC Broadband Performance Report through which the reliability of its NBN speeds could be verified.
However, it ranked first in the Netflix ISP Speed Index for Australia in October 2022. This Index measures the prime time performance of Netflix streaming by internet providers across the country.
You can get in touch with the Foxtel team in the following ways:
Besides its array of entertainment packs to choose from, Foxtel only has one additional noteworthy feature:
You can add a standard Netflix subscription to Foxtel's entertainment packs for $9 per month on fixed-term contracts (or for $15 per month on no lock-in contracts).
This is a little cheaper than the $16.99 per month you'd be paying if you signed up to Netflix separately.
For cheaper NBN:
Tangerine has some of the cheapest plans on Finder and offers 6-month sign-up discounts to sweeten the deal.
Don't want to be forced into a 12-month entertainment plan? You can tack on Fetch TV on some of iiNet's plans.
Exetel has topped multiple ACCC broadband performance reports for delivering top-tier speeds across its plans.
Unfortunately, Foxtel NBN isn't available to sign up to online. You'll need to call Foxtel to discuss signing up to any of its NBN plans or bundles.
You can also compare NBN plans from other internet providers in Australia to see if you can find a better deal.
What if I'm moving house?
If you're moving, you'll need to get in touch with Foxtel to check whether Foxtel TV and NBN are available at your new address. Keep in mind that it could take up to 5 business days to get connected.
In case there's a notice period to account for, make sure you leave sufficient time to let your current provider know you're leaving. You don't want to be stuck paying for 2 internet services.
