Future Broadband claims to focus on delivering only the highest-quality services. It has been operating since 2017, selling broadband plans. It now offers a set of NBN plans.

Future Broadband is different in that it only sells limited-data plans, but its data caps are rather high. The largest data cap plans are in line with the Finder averages for their tier compared to other, unlimited plans. However, if you don't foresee yourself ripping through more data than on offer, its plan speeds are stellar (e.g. NBN50 typical evening speed of 47.00Mbps vs ACCC average of 42.6Mbps).

Add to this that its data excess charges are some of the more reasonable on the market and you might not have too bad a time. So long as you don't foresee yourself needing truly unlimited data, you might be able to get a great deal from Future Broadband.

Future Broadband extra features

  • Phone pack. You can get a home phone line for free with pay-as-you-go calls or get one with local, national and mobile calls included for $20 extra per month.


Is Future Broadband right for you?

Pros

  • Very high speeds. All of Future Broadband's plans have speeds that are well above average for their tier.
  • Cheaper plans. If you're willing to settle for moderate data caps, you can save a bit of money monthly with its lower-data NBN plans.

Cons

  • Limited data. Only one of Future Broadband's plans offer unlimited data, on the lowest speed tier it sells.
  • Set-up fee. Future Broadband will charge you a $55 set-up fee whether or not you bring your own modem.

Summary: Future Broadband offers extremely high typical broadband speeds for competitive prices, so long as you don't mind a roomy data cap.
