What should I look for when comparing NBN plans?

There's a huge number of NBN plans on offer of all shapes and sizes, which can make it difficult to choose. Here are the most important things to consider when comparing NBN plans:

  • Cost. While you should obviously consider the monthly cost of your service, you want to factor in connection and set-up fees too. Even if you're signing up for an extended contract, a number of providers have surprisingly high fees to actually get your Internet going.
  • Speed. There are four different NBN speed tiers. Always look at the typical speed that you're likely to get from a provider, not just the maximum possible. Not all speeds are available at all properties.
  • Contract type. Locking into a long term contract can drive down your set-up fees or provide extra bonuses, but a month-to-month plan gives you the ability to change whenever you want. Decide whether you're comfortable being locked into that specific provider or plan for a year or two.
  • Data limit. This is a minor point since most NBN plans these days provide unlimited data, but if your plan has a cap, make sure it's high enough for your needs. Going over the limit could cost you extra, and result in your connection speed being throttled to almost nothing.

What NBN speed is right for me?

The NBN is standardised and split into four speed tiers. Providers will also quote a lower "typical evening speed", which better represents the speeds you'll actually experience with their service. Check out our handy guide to go a little deeper into what typical evening speeds are.

step-4-switching-nbn

Basic (NBN 12)

Basic plans are the entry level tier for the NBN and are suitable for single light Internet users. Good for basic browsing, email and small downloads.

step-4-switching-nbn

Standard (NBN 25)

Standard plans are a good option for one or two medium users. Suitable for light video streaming, moderate downloads or a small household.

step-4-switching-nbn

Standard Plus (NBN 50)

Standard Plus plans provide a considerable boost from the entry level NBN tiers, making them ideal for a household of up to four, or a couple of heavy users. You'll get high definition video streaming, gaming and high-intensity Internet use.

step-4-switching-nbn

Premium (NBN 100)

If broadband speed is your top priority then you should consider Premium NBN plans. Premium is currently the fastest of the core NBN speed tiers available, making it perfect for large households of heavy users. You can stream video, download big files and/or play games all at the same time. Also suits small businesses.

Remember that since you have no control over what technology links your house to the NBN, you simply might not have access to the higher speed tiers, depending on where you live.

What are the different types of NBN connections?

While the initial NBN plan was to connect high-speed optical fibres directly to every Australian household, we've ended up with a mix of technologies for NBN connections, including:

  • Fibre to the Premises (FTTP). The best connection, where optic fibre cables are run directly to a special box at your house and the modem plugs right in. Around 20% of households have this.
  • Fibre to the Node (FTTN). Fibre optic cables are run to a box somewhere on your street, and individual houses are connected via older copper wire. Most connections are of this kind.
  • Fibre to the Curb (FTTC). Fibre optic cables are run to a box outside your house, and you and several of your neighbours are hooked up to it by copper wire.
  • Fixed Wireless. Mostly for regional or rural customers. A small antenna on your house picks up a signal broadcast by a larger nearby NBN antenna, much like a phone network.

Where can I find the fastest NBN?

Even within a single speed tier, different providers will advertise different average "typical evening speeds", or how fast your connection is likely to be in reality. Networks slow down when more people are online, so this speed takes into account what you'll get in the evening during peak hours (between 7pm and 11pm).

These evening speeds are enforced and measured regularly by the ACCC. You can check out our Internet providers page for more details about which NBN providers have the fastest speed according to the ACCC.

You can also visit the ACCC's website to find the most up-to-date information on provider performance, see which providers have the most frequent service outages and, of course, find the fastest NBN providers in Australia.

Frequently asked questions

What is the NBN?

The NBN is a national project to connect all Australian households to high-speed reliable internet. It was first announced in 2007, and the project is currently scheduled to be completed sometime this year or in early 2021.

Is the NBN available in my area?

To find out whether you can access the NBN where you live, use our NBN rollout map.

How do I switch to the NBN?

Switching to the NBN is not only fairly easy, but also mandatory within 18 months once it's been installed in your neighbourhood. All you need to do after the NBN has been rolled out to your neighbourhood is take out an NBN plan with your provider of choice. Find out more in our guide on how to switch to the NBN.

Do I need to buy a new modem to connect to the NBN?

If you weren't connected to the NBN previously and you're getting Fibre to the Node or Curb, you'll require a new modem that's capable of processing the signals that the NBN uses (VDSL2+).

If you have Fibre to the Premises or Fixed Wireless, you only need a wireless router, and it's possible that your existing wireless router may work.

In either case, if you don't already have the correct hardware, all NBN plans will offer an NBN-compatible modem or router. This will usually cost $100-$150 or so and be included in the set up fee (which might be waived if you sign a contract).

      Hi Allan,

      Thanks for your question. Sorry to hear about your current situation with your NBN provider. While we review NBN in our pages, it’s helpful to know that we neither work with them or answer for their company. It would be best to contact the customer service support of NBN directly for further assistance.

      Hope this clarifies and we hope they find a quick resolution for you!

      With care,
      Nikki

      Hi Michael,

      Thanks for getting in touch! I understand you want to get the full disclosure of NBN costs. Kindly note that while we have a review and comparison page for NBN providers, we don’t work with them directly. It would be best to reach out to your chosen NBN provider to check the net costs of using their service.

      Hope this helps and feel free to reach out to us again for further assistance.

      Cheers,
      Nikki

      Hi Ian,

      Thanks for contacting Finder.

      In that case, you’ll need to contact the representative who installed your NBN connection. You may also directly reach out to NBN so they can refer you to an agent.

      Hope this helps.

      Hi Richard,

      Thanks for your question.

      Are you pertaining to the ABC iview? If so, the recommended minimum Internet speed by ABC is 1.5Mbps. For best results, iview typically uses the following data speeds:

      60-minute program = up to 300MB of data on-demand and 360MB when live streaming
      30-minute program = up to 150MB of data on-demand and180MB when live streaming
      The 10-minute program = up to 50MB of data on-demand and 60MB when live streaming
      5-minute program = up to 25MB of data on-demand and 30MB when live streaming

      Hope this helps.

      Cheers,
      May

    Hi, we need to get unto the new NBN system. I’m worried that I’ll be paying exorbitant amounts of money for speeds that are not available in my area. How do I know what the maximum speeds are for where I live given the infrastructure that has been installed in order for me to get a fair deal and also know what speeds to be expected?

    • Default Gravatar
      JonathanJuly 1, 2017

      Hi Rebecca!

      Your internet service provider may be able to give you some estimates about the available speeds on your area by giving them a phone call. If you wish to have a second opinion, you may also request a technician to validate the current speeds but this may involve some fees depending on your provider and your existing plan.

      Migration to NBN is compulsory and once it is available, you only have 18 months to be transferred otherwise your services will be disconnected. You may want to talk to several providers as they have varying speed estimates and costs upon transfer.

      Hope this helps.

      Cheers,
      Jonathan

    I was on the 25/4 plan with Dodo and have upgraded to 100/40 on fibre to the node. Is my speed likely to be achieved and if not who do I contact to get fibre to the premises and how much would it cost?

      JonathanJune 27, 2017

      Hi Ken!

      Thanks for the comment. You must be a heavy data user! :)

      We need to establish that you have cable or NBN connection in your area. Although speeds can only be estimated, it is important that you request a technician to do a speed test in your area just to make sure it matches your expectations. As for requesting the fibre and the costs, once you make a call to your provider, they will be making a quote about the monthly service fee, installation costs, even wiring should it goes beyond the standard distance.

      All the best!

      Cheers,
      Jonathan

    Have been with iinet broadband plan for about 7 years and now am changing to NBN are they good to stay with?

      JonathanMay 29, 2017

      Hi Sue,

      Practically, that would depend on your preferences and internet connection needs and usage. You’d be best to contact an ISP who can advise what would be best for you. On this page, though you can compare the providers with NBN broadband plans. You may click on the ‘Go to site’ button if you wish to get redirected to the provider’s website.

      Hope this helps.

      Regards,
      Jonathan
