Origin Broadband NBN and ADSL plans compared

No longer just an energy company, Origin now offers NBN and ADSL plans to residents across Australia.

Origin Broadband

Origin is a name typically associated with gas and electricity services, but the Australian company now offers broadband services as well. Both NBN and ADSL connections are available, with no requirements around bundling them with an Origin Energy service as Origin Broadband is an entirely standalone offering that both new and existing Origin customers can take up.

Origin Broadband NBN plans

Origin takes a simple approach with its NBN plans, packing all of them with unlimited data and servicing the entire spectrum of NBN technologies: Fibre to the Node (FTTN), Fibre to the Premises (FTTP), Fibre to the Building (FTTB), Fibre to the Curb (FTTC), Hybrid-Fibre Coaxial (HFC) and Fixed Wireless.

Origin Broadband ADSL plans

Origin Broadband's ADSL plans are even simpler than its NBN offerings, with just a single plan available on your choice of month-to-month, 12-month or 24-month contract. This plan bundles in a home phone service with line rental plus unlimited monthly data. Calls are charged on a pay-as-you-go basis, with no option to purchase unlimited call packs.

How does Origin Broadband compare?

Why should you consider Origin Broadband?

Origin Broadband doesn't make the strongest case for itself when compared with the many other broadband providers in the Aussie market. Its pricing is on the high side of average and it doesn't offer any compelling inclusions to bolster the value of its service.

That said, if you're already with Origin for your gas and/or electricity, the convenience of having a single point of contact for multiple utilities might be a strong selling point. Just be aware that Origin does not yet offer any benefits to its existing customers beyond that simple convenience.
