QUICK GUIDE: Services  - Extras - Pros & Cons

What additional services are included?

What voice options are provided?

SpinTel provides bundled phone services with its month to month ADSL and 24 month ADSL contracts, as well as all NBN plans.

The standard included package provides 12c local calls, 20c/minute national calls with a 39c flagfall and mobile calls charged at 34c/minute with a 39c flagfall. For $10 per month, local and national calls are unlimited, while for $20 per month all Australian call types are offered on an unlimited basis.

What happens if I exceed my monthly download limit?

The default for SpinTel plans where users exceed their data quotas is to add an"Auto Data Block" of 10GB, charged at $3 for ADSL2+ and NBN users during excess usage periods. You can opt to disable Auto Data Block, however. Do so, and when you exceed your monthly download limit, you’ll be speed limited to 256Kbps instead.

Pros and cons


    • Easy to understand NBN plans. SpinTel simply bumps the price up by $10 for each speed tier on its NBN plans.
  • Uploads not counted on NBN plans. Your data quota is only depleted by downloading content, not sending it up to the Internet.
  • Choice of excess penalty. Shaping is a nice safe way to maintain bill levels, but it can suck if you really do need the speed for a limited time. Being able to opt for a 10GB data boost, but not forced to is a nice option to have.


    • Entry level phone bundles charge for timed calls. Voice as a sales proposition is astonishingly cheap these days, so being charged for phone calls feels somewhat quaint.
