How much does Telesurf cost?

Depending on the service you choose, whether it’s NBN, ADSL, phone service or security, the costs per month can vary. Due to different set-up procedures, the set-up costs also vary depending on the service you choose, and they can range between $70 and $109. Modems are not included in the set-up cost and must be purchased prior to installation, or, if the customer desires, a modem can be purchased directly from Telesurf for $109. Adding on a phone or security service will also attract an additional cost. The phone service will cost either an additional $9.95 or $32.35 per month and the security service will cost an additional $25 per month. Business customers have access to all of the residential services, which are similarly priced.

This hardware will cost an additional $300. Extra security devices can be added on at an additional cost.

Pros and cons

h4>Pros

  • Low price point. All of the services offered, whether it’s ADSL2+ or NBN, are relatively inexpensive. Compared to Telstra or Optus, Telesurf is a cheaper alternative that offers similar services.
  • Security. Unlike many telecommunication providers, Telesurf offers an extensive security range for residential properties and businesses. This feature sets them apart from the competition.

Cons

  • Modems are not included in set-up fees. Most providers include a modem in the set-up costs; Telesurf does not.
  • ADSL2+ phone service costs. Charging an additional $32.35 per month for a phone service is an unusually high extra cost. Also, this phone service only includes local calls, so if you call national or mobile numbers, the cost per-month may increase drastically.
