Is Origin right for me?

  • What does Origin offer? Origin offers NBN and ADSL plans on both no-lock-in and fixed-term contracts. You can bundle these plans with Origin's energy plans for a discount on your total monthly bill.
  • Product highlights: Discounts for bundling with Origin energy plans, multiple contract options.
  • Watch out for: Origin doesn't advertise single typical evening speeds like most NBN providers. Instead, it provides a range of speeds its customers typically experience during the evening which makes it tougher to know what kind of experience you're going to get before signing up.

Origin Broadband's NBN plans explained

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'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.

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. You also benefit from a discount for bundling Origin's Internet and energy plans together, which can end up cheaper overall than going with a separate Internet provider.
