ADSL/ADSL2+ plans range between $45.99 and $75.99, depending on the plan you choose and the Zone you reside within. On all NBN plans, IPSTAR offers a N300 Router at a cost of $99. ADSL/ADSL2+ plans offer a N300 modem router, which includes an In-Line Splitter/Fitter, for $75. The modem is free if you sign up to a 24-month contract with 200GB data or more. If you already have an existing IPSTAR internet service with an active 256kbps speed, you are eligible for VoIP services. VoIP costs either $9.95 or $14.95 with call rates changing depending on the VoIP plan you choose. In order for the voice services to function, VoIP customers are required to purchase an Analog Telephone Adapter (ATA) from IPSTAR. The Cisco SPA 122 ATA with Router costs $65 plus $10 shipping

A free router is included for customers who sign up to a 24-month contract (excluding Star Muster 10-10, 15-45 and Anytime Star Muster 30).

What voice options are provided?

IPSTAR offers a VoIP service. This voice service is only available for existing IPSTAR Internet residential customers with an active speed of 256kbps. The VoIP voice service either costs $9.95 per month or $14.95 per month. Call rates for each of these voice plans depends on the plan you sign up to. To use IPSTAR VoIP, customers are required to purchase an ATA from IPSTAR. This device is essential, otherwise the voice service will not operate correctly. The ATA costs $65 plus $10 shipping.

Pros

  1. A variety of contract lengths. IPSTAR’s variety of contract lengths caters to a wide range of needs, whether you only need the internet on a month-to-month basis, or for a long period of time with subsidised hardware.
  2. Low cost. IPSTAR provides NBN plans at a competitive price point.

Con’s

  1. Voice services only available to existing IPSTAR customers. New customers who require a voice service with their internet, will be unable to sign up with IPSTAR.
  2. Limited data limit on NBN. Today’s digital age requires a versatile and flexible internet service. Not offering a data limit larger than 500GB is odd when so many other providers offer a 1000Gb or higher data limit.
