TPG is a large Australian broadband provider that offers four unlimited data NBN plans of various speeds. And if you're looking to combine all of your services under one provider, TPG also offers T4G sim-only mobile plans. They used to offer a range of ADSL2+ plans as well.

TPG currently offers a higher than average typical evening speed compared to the rest of the market, coming second in best Internet provider rankings based on speed by the ACCC. TPG also shines with its Fibre to the Building plans, which are on offer for customers fortunate enough to have this connection. These plans offer great speeds at low prices.

Overall, TPG is a little on the expensive side for the quality of service it offers, but it remains competitive among telecommunications providers.

You can also grab these features with TPG:

  • Phone packs. While all plans come with pay-as-you-go phone services, TPG has three separate phone packs that you can add on. For $10 extra per month, you can either get unlimited national landline calls and mobile calls, or unlimited national landline calls and some international minutes. Additionally, it will cost you $20 more per month if you want all that plus free international calls to 15 countries.
  • Modems. If you need a new modem for your service, the cost of this will be included in a $99.95 set-up fee. If you opt for a 6-month contract rather than a month-to-month plan, this fee will be completely waived for NBN plans.


Is TPG Internet right for you?

The good stuff

  • Special high-speed FTTB plans.
  • Fast typical evening speeds for NBN plans.

The not-so-good stuff

  • Poor contract incentives.
  • Expensive international calls.

The bottom line: TPG may not have a lot to differentiate itself from other providers, but still offers a solid set of fixed-line broadband plans.

If you don't have a fixed-line connection running to your house, TPG has a huge number of fixed wireless plans that come with or without calls.

TPG FAQs

Do I need a new modem to sign up to TPG?

If this is your first time being connected to the NBN, you'll need a new modem (provided by TPG) that's NBN-capable.

Can I cancel my TPG NBN plan?

On a month-to-month plan, you have the ability to freely cancel your TPG service at any time. However, if you're on a 6-month contract, you'll have to pay an early cancellation or exit fee, which will likely amount to several hundred dollars, depending on how much of your contract is left.

Do TPG's Internet plans include calls?

By default, all of TPG's plans provide pay-as-you-go phone services. You can purchase one of their additional phone packs for $10 a month extra if you want calls within Australia, or for $20 a month extra if you also want international calls to 15 different countries.

      Hi Hasan,

      Thank you for reaching out to finder.

      Yes, there are plans that offer unlimited data but for you to get unlimited local, national and mobile calls there is an additional $10 monthly fee on top of the bundle price. As for international calls, there are also plans where this is available. Click on “View details” to learn more about what plans offer this. Though the countries supported does not include Turkey and New Zealand. These are the supported countries: Canada, China, France, Germany, Greece, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Singapore, Taiwan, United Kingdom, United States. Hope this helps!

      Cheers,
      Reggie

      Hi Cindy,

      Thank you for visiting Finder.

      If you do not require a fixed-line but still wants to have an internet connection, you may opt for a mobile broadband plan. You can use our comparison table and search filters to help narrow down your options. Once you have chosen a particular plan, you may then click on the “Go to site” button and you will be redirected to the provider’s website where you can proceed with your application or get in touch with their representatives for further assistance.

      I hope this helps.

      Let us know if there is anything else that we may assist you with.

      Cheers,
      Ash

    I would like the NBN that I heard about as a child, ie fibre to the house and 100 mbs speeds.

    I am prepared to pay extra to get the fibre to my house (subject to a sensible quote).

    Can this be done?
    Will it give 100 mbs?
    Who do I ask to have it done?

    Cheers

      Hi Graeme,

      Thank you for your inquiry.

      You may refer to our table to compare providers that offer FTTN NBN or Fibre plans with 100mbps speed. You may compare your options based on the price, data, speed, and contract length (please see the image below for the guide). There’s also a ‘Go to site’ button that you can click on that page so you’d be redirected to the provider’s main site. If you have questions about installation, you can directly contact the provider anytime.

      Hope this helps.

      Cheers,
      May

    We have been with our current ISP Westnet for over 10 years so would ideally like to retain the same email address (it is on so many things). Can we still keep this email address given Westnet now fall under TPG?

      BrodieNovember 23, 2016

      Hi Eugene,

      Unfortunately, you will have to remain a Westnet customer in some form to retain your email address. You can sign up to a cheap service through Westnet and essentially pay to keep your email address, but I would recommend contacting Westnet support for advice on the best option 1300 786 068.

      Thanks,
      Brodie
