iPrimus doesn't really offer anything particularly special when it comes to the NBN. Its NBN plans offer slightly below average speeds (e.g. their Fast plan's typical speed is 82.00Mbps vs the ACCC average of 84.5Mbps), and they don't give you much value if you're looking at the price tag. They're not the most expensive provider on the market, since their plans are on par with Finder averages, except for Fast plan which is $10/month cheaper.

Overall, iPrimus' NBN plans aren't bad by any means, but it's certainly worth comparing it to other providers on the market if you're looking for better value. You can do this with our NBN comparison engine here.

iPrimus also offers:

  • Fetch entertainment. If you buy the NBN50 or NBN100 plan, you can add on a Fetch entertainment bundle for an extra $10 per month or more.
  • Home phone line. All plans come with a home phone line and pay as you go calls. Add unlimited landline and mobile calls in Australia for $10 per month, or unlimited Australian landline and mobiles plus 2000 international minutes for $30 per month.

Is iPrimus right for you?


  • Fetch Tv. When you sign up to iPrimus' higher tiered plans, you have the option to include a Fetch TV entertainment bundle for an additional price each month.


  • Not the most competitive prices. While iPrimus isn't the most expensive NBN provider in the market, they certainly aren't the cheapest for what they offer.

The bottom line: iPrimus has over 20 years of telco experience, but with more competitive deals and faster average speeds available, it's hard to say that they're in front of their competition.

      Hi Reen,

      Thanks for your question.

      NBN offers 5 speed tiers with download speed starting at 12 Mbps to 100 Mbps. I’ve sent you an email with a link to NBN page where you can get more information about their speed tiers.
