Inspired Broadband is a Melbourne-based service provider that sells simple NBN connections.

However, one major caveat is that its terms and conditions claim that you waive your rights under the ACMA Customer Service Guarantee (CSG) if you sign up with it. This means it is under no obligation to deliver its minimum promised service and you can't seek financial compensation if it doesn't.

As far as plans go, Inspired doesn't have much to offer. The typical evening speeds aren't great, coming in under the average speeds for their tier (for example, their NBN50 plan has a typical speed of 40.90Mbps versus ACCC average of 49.1Mbps).

In a way, though, it's not that important, since without a CSA it could deliver you a terrible connection and you wouldn't be able to complain. Consider another provider if you want a reliable or cheap Internet connection.

Inspired Broadband extra features:

  • Home phone. You can get a home phone line for $7.95 extra per month with flat rate phone calls to Australian landlines and mobiles, or one with unlimited Australian local, national and mobile calls for $14.95 per month.

Is Inspired Broadband right for you?

Pros

  • Low modem price. You can bring your own modem to Inspired Broadband, but if you need to buy one, you can get one from $99, which is cheaper than the average cost of modems in Finder's database of $138.

Cons

  • Payment fees. If you don't pay by direct debit, you'll be charged an additional $5 per month.
  • Waive rights. You have to waive your rights under the ACMA Customer Service Guarantee to sign up with Inspired. You cannot seek compensation when your minimum service requirements aren't met.

Summary: Inspired Broadband's plans are fine for their price, but waiving your rights as a consumer by signing up with them means you might not get what you're paying for.

Inspired Broadband frequently asked questions

Do I need a new modem to sign up to Inspired Broadband?

Customers who haven't been on the NBN before will probably require a new modem to get their connection working properly. You can either purchase your own independently or buy one from Inspired Broadband at plan purchase for $99.

Can I cancel my Inspired Broadband NBN plan?

Yes. But even though Inspired does not have contract plans, you have to pay a full month's plan fees in order to cancel your subscription.

Do Inspired Broadband's Internet plans include calls?

No, not by default. However, you can purchase a home phone line with flat rate phone calls in Australia for an extra $7.95 per month, or unlimited local, national and Australian mobile calls for $14.95 per month.
