Is Mint Telecom right for me?

  • What does Mint Telecom offer? Mint Telecom offers NBN and ADSL broadband plans on six-month contracts. It also supports Internet and phone bundles using both the copper network and Voice over IP (VoIP)
  • Product highlights: No set-up fees, loyalty rewards for active customers.
  • Watch out for: Mint Telecom's top-tier Premium NBN plans don't support unlimited data caps. If you're a heavier Internet user, you may find yourself running out of data before the month is over and be forced to contend with slower "shaped" speeds.

Mint Telecom NBN plans

Mint Telecom's NBN plans explained

Mint Telecom supplies NBN services over fixed-line and fixed wireless connections. These services operate on six-month contracts and support all four of the main NBN speed tiers: Basic (nbn12), Standard (nbn25), Standard Plus (nbn50) and Premium (nbn100). Depending on the type of connection available at your premises, you may only be able to receive some of those speeds.

Mint Telecom ADSL plans

Mint Telecom's ADSL plans explained

Mint Telecom provides both a standalone ADSL service and a selection of ADSL and home phone bundles, all of which come with unlimited monthly data. For the standalone plan you'll need an existing phone service with another provider in order to sign up, since standard ADSL Internet requires an active phone line to function. The ADSL and home phone bundles, meanwhile, come with line rental packed in.

How does Mint Telecom compare?

  • Six-month contracts offer fixed-term benefits without the steep commitment
  • Lack of unlimited data caps on Basic and Premium NBN plans is unfortunate
  • Monthly pricing is considerably higher than a lot of competitors

Mint Telecom's choice to go with six-month contracts puts it in an odd position. Most providers opt for either month-to-month or 12-month contracts, leaving little in the way of direct competition. Nevertheless, comparing its plans against competitors in the month-to-month and 12-month space provides a clear picture of how Mint Telecom stacks up overall.

Why should you consider Mint Telecom?

Mint Telecom isn't the cheapest provider on the market, but both its NBN and ADSL plans are reasonably priced for what they offer. Large data caps, no set-up fees and plenty of phone packages available for bundling provide you with lots of room to tailor a plan to suit your particular needs.

Aussies averse to long-term commitment will find much to like about Mint Telecom too. Its six-month contracts are short enough that you're not locked in for thousands of dollars of repayments while still benefiting from the $0 set-up costs of a fixed-term contract.

Mint Telecom also operates a rewards program for its customers, offering exclusive deals on travel and dining experiences as a bonus for sticking around. Depending on your lifestyle, these offers could save you serious cash on your holiday hunting.
