TPG's top NBN & ADSL plans

TPG Telecom

TPG has been around for over 30 years in Australia and has grown into the country’s second largest Internet service provider. Through a series of acquisitions and other corporate happenings, TPG owns the second-largest ADSL2+ infrastructure in Australia, as well as broad fibre-optic networks, giving it the capacity to connect customers and also deliver them high-speed connectivity in more locations.

TPG first offered "unlimited" plans some eight years ago, and though there has been much wrangling over proper disclosure of all fees, conditions and such since, TPG continues to offer plans with "unlimited" data, and in many cases, at quite reasonable costs.

Today, TPG offers both newer NBN connections and legacy ADSL2+ connections, as well as a range of specialised services intended more for business customers.

Somewhat unlike other ISPs, TPG offers plans on both month-by-month contracts and 18-month contracts rather than the more-common 12-month and 24-month contracts offered by competitors. However, like other providers most of TPG’s plans are technically bundles, with all NBN plans including some form of home phone line service, though this essentially comes at no extra cost unless you plan to use it. ADSL services are available with and without a bundled phone service, though the price difference is negligible.

Beyond the ADSL and NBN consumer plans which we compare here, it’s worth noting that TPG has a range of plans on offer for small, medium and large enterprise too, including ADSL and NBN plans, as well as more specialised higher-bandwidth options.

How does TPG compare?

Though TPG’s ADSL plans are a little complex, the company’s NBN plans are relatively straightforward, and comparisons are more easily made. Due to the way the NBN works, provider plans typically vary within a fairly limited window of data inclusions and price. That said, TPG’s plans generally offer good value.

How do TPG’s phone packs compare?

Pricing of phone add-ons on the NBN appears to have stabilised around two price points: $10 each month for unlimited calls to local, national and Australian mobile numbers. This is what most of TPG’s plans adopt.

TPG’s cheaper Standard plans offer slightly more expensive phone options. $10 a month only gives you unlimited national landline calls while mobiles are an extra $10 on top of that.

For most other plans, though, it’s just $10 extra for all calls within Australia, and this is on par with virtually all TPG’s competitors.
