SpinTel NBN, ADSL and mobile broadband plans compared June 2019

With great NBN rates that don't count uploads towards your monthly limit, SpinTel offers some of the best deals around.

Is SpinTel right for me?

  • What does SpinTel offer? SpinTel provides home broadband services over the NBN and ADSL networks as well as mobile broadband services powered by the Optus 4G network. Additionally, it offers a range of SIM-only mobile phone plans operating on that same Optus network.
  • Product highlights: SpinTel offers low prices, no set-up fees and flexible month-to-month contract terms.
  • Watch out for: SpinTel's ADSL plans don't include line rental by default, so you'll need to account for the extra $24.95 line rental cost if you're not already paying for a phone service with another provider.

SpinTel NBN plans

SpinTel's NBN plans explained

SpinTel has plenty to offer in the NBN space. Its plans support all the standard fixed-line access technologies as well as fixed wireless, and you can choose from the three most-popular NBN speed tiers: Basic (nbn12), Standard Plus (nbn50) and Premium (nbn100).

All SpinTel's NBN plans are available on month-to-month or 18-month contracts. You don't need to pay a set-up fee with either option, but you get a bonus $59 credit on your account if you commit to the 18-month option.

SpinTel ADSL plans

SpinTel's ADSL plans explained

Aussies without access to the NBN have a good range of options to choose from with SpinTel's ADSL plans. They operate much the same as the provider's NBN plans, with a capped option for those with lighter data needs and an unlimited option for folks who spend a lot of time streaming and downloading.

SpinTel offers its ADSL plans on both month-to-month and 18-month contracts, with the latter getting you $59 credited to your account. However, it's important to note that SpinTel's ADSL plans do not include line rental by default. You will need to purchase this separately if you don't already have an active phone service with another provider.

SpinTel mobile broadband plans

SpinTel's mobile broadband plans explained

SpinTel's 3G/4G mobile broadband services operate over the Optus network. You can opt for SIM-only plans with a $5 activation fee, or you can buy hardware and waive that fee. Outright purchase options include a $99 Huawei E8372 USB dongle, a $99 Huawei E5573 hotspot or a $179 Huawei B525 3G/4G Dual Band AC Wi-Fi Router.

SpinTel extras

To put your NBN connection to work, you'll need a compatible modem-router capable of sharing that connection among your various devices. If you don't already have a suitable model ready to go, SpinTel will sell you the $49 NetComm NF10WV or you can step up to the $99.95 NetComm NF18ACV which adds Gigabit Ethernet and Wi-Fi 802.11 AC1600. There's no option for a free modem on NBN or ADSL, even if you sign up for an 18-month contract (but you do get that $59 credit).

How does SpinTel compare?

  • Some of the cheapest NBN plans available
  • Month-to-month contracts and no set-up fees mean no long-term commitments
  • ADSL plans are a little pricey after factoring in line rental

Why should you consider SpinTel?

There's a lot to like about SpinTel's broadband offerings, with some of the best pricing around plus the bonus of not counting uploads towards your monthly limit on NBN connections. This helps your allowance stretch further, considering there's no middle ground between the 200GB/500GB per month plans and unlimited plans. The flexible excess data options take some of the risk out of opting for the lower plans.

In return, there's no option for a free modem even if you sign up for an 18-month contract but the $59 credit on your first bill covers the cost of the basic NetComm NF10WV.

Thankfully, SpinTel's NBN price remains very competitive as you crank up the speed. The lack of Standard speed plans on a fixed line isn't really an issue considering it's only $10 per month to step up from Basic to Standard Plus. Power users could be disappointed that there's no unlimited data option on the Premium plans.

The icing on the cake is the $0 per month pay-as-you-go voice service on NBN and ADSL plans with the option of a generous $10 phone pack. SpinTel's Achilles heel is its steep regional ADSL pricing, so you might want to look elsewhere until the NBN reaches your street.
