Since 2005, Harbour ISP has been providing Internet services all across Australia. It has a wide range of connection technologies on offer, from NBN to satellite to fixed wireless.

As far as prices go, Harbour ISP's NBN50 and NBN100 plans are roughly $10 cheaper per month than the Finder averages for the speed tiers. They don't hold up quite as well on the speed side, coming in a little underneath the industry averages (e.g. NBN100 typical evening speed of Mbps vs ACCC average of 84.5Mbps).

Harbour's satellite plans are quite competitive too, mostly cheaper across the board compared to another satellite provider like Reachnet. The lower tiers tend to have much higher off-peak data allowances if that's something that is useful for you.

Harbour ISP extra features

  • Home phone. You can get a VoIP home phone service on your NBN plan. The 3 options and their monthly fees are: free national calls for $5, unlimited national and Australian mobile calls for $7, or national, mobile and select international calls for $9.

Is Harbour ISP right for you?


  • Cheaper plans. Harbour's higher NBN plans are about $10 cheaper than average.
  • Wide range. Across its satellite options, Harbour ISP has heaps of plans available for its customers.


  • Non-direct debit fee. You'll be charged an extra $2.50 per month if you don't pay by direct debit.
  • Activation fees. If you don't sign up to a long contract with Harbour ISP, you'll be hit by high activation fees.

Summary: Harbour ISP's fixed-line NBN plans are relatively low-priced with about average speeds, but you might have to sign a contract to avoid hefty activation and set-up fees.
