Nextalk says it has a team of broadband specialists and a customer-first approach. It has NBN plans at pretty low prices, with its Standard Plus and Premium plans costing $10 less per month than the Finder averages for their speed tiers, and its NBN25 plan coming in at $5 cheaper.

The problem with all of Nextalk's plans is that it doesn't disclose typical evening speeds (how fast your connection is likely to be in the evening when everyone's online). This makes it impossible to say how your connection will hold up or how reliable your service will actually be.

Unless you want to gamble based on the low prices alone, you may be better siding with a provider that can promise you a decent connection speed at all times. Check out more plans from other providers using our NBN comparison table.

Nextalk extra features:

  • Phone line. You can add on a phone line to your NBN or ADSL service for an additional $10 monthly. You'll get unlimited local and national calls with this.

Is Nextalk right for you?

The good stuff

  • Good prices. Nextalk's plans are priced low, especially for the NBN25 and NBN50 tiers.
  • Wide range. Nextalk has a plan for all speed tiers.

The not-so-good stuff

  • No typical speeds. Nextalk does not disclose evening speeds, so it's hard to say how well your connection will perform.
  • No included calls to mobiles. If you get a phone line, you'll still have to pay if you call a mobile phone.

The bottom line: Nextalk has low prices on its higher tier plans, but without typical evening speeds it's hard to say if they're worth it.

When the NBN hasn't reached your neighbourhood yet, you can pick up an ADSL plan from Nextalk on a monthly or six-month contract.

Nextalk FAQs

Do I need a new modem to sign up to Nextalk?

If you haven't been connected to the NBN before, it's likely that you'll need a new modem. You can either bring your own or purchase one from Nextalk for $129 plus $20 postage and handling. This is reduced by $69 if you sign up to a 12-month contract.

Can I cancel my Nextalk NBN plan?

So long as you're on a month-to-month plan, you can cancel anytime with no issues. On a contract, you will have to pay a $99 termination fee to leave early.

Do Nextalk's Internet plans include calls?

Not by default. You can add on a home phone line with unlimited local and national calls for an additional $10 per month to either your NBN or ADSL plans.
