Westnet Broadband

Is Westnet right for me?

  • What does Westnet offer? Westnet supplies Aussies around the country with NBN and ADSL services, with the latter available on both iiNet and Telstra's copper networks.
  • Product highlights: Thanks to its relationship with iiNet, Westnet is able to offer a wide range of broadband services as well as extras like entertainment bundles.
  • Watch out for: Pricing isn't Westnet's strong suit, and many of its NBN and ADSL plans trend towards the expensive end of the market.

Westnet NBN Plans


Fixed line NBN plans

Westnet's fixed line NBN plans explained

For fixed line NBN plans, Westnet supports three of the four NBN speed tiers: Basic (NBN12), Standard Plus (NBN50) and Premium (NBN100). Its core plans come with unlimited monthly data, but it also offers a 500GB plan with a Basic NBN connection for those with lighter data needs.


Fixed wireless NBN plans

Westnet's fixed wireless NBN plans follow a similar structure to its fixed line plans with one key difference: only two of the four NBN speed tiers are available. You can choose between Basic and Standard NBN connections, with each coming in two permutations that offer different inclusions.

Satellite NBN plans

Westnet's satellite NBN plans explained

Aussies living in the more remote areas of the country can choose from three core satellite NBN plans with Westnet. Each features a data cap split into peak and off-peak usage, with the peak period defined as between 7:00am and 1:00am.

Westnet ADSL plans

Westnet's ADSL plans explained

There are still quite a few Aussies stuck with ADSL as they wait for the NBN rollout to reach their area. If that's you, Wesnet's ADSL plans can keep you connected regardless of whether you live within iiNet's ADSL network or under the coverage of Telstra's larger ADSL infrastructure.

How does Westnet compare?

  • Plenty of options across different broadband technologies
  • Solid typical evening speeds across its NBN plans
  • A little on the expensive side compared to other options on the market
