What to consider when choosing an ADSL2+ plan in Adelaide

  • When will I see the NBN? The NBN rollout continues, and when it hits your suburb, ADSL and ADSL2+ services will be switched off in a staggered fashion, typically over an 18-month time span. It's worth knowing when you're due to get NBN because while your ISP will almost always be happy to switch you to an NBN plan if you're still under contract, you may get a better deal being flexible by opting for an ADSL/ADSL2+ month-to-month plan instead.
  • What speeds are feasible? Most ISPs will suggest ADSL2+ speeds of "up to" 24Mbps, but that's a trap for the unwary. "Up to" means that it's a maximum, and you'd only ever see near those speeds if you were very close to the exchange and had fresh clean copper wiring. ADSL/ADSL2+ signal quality degrades over distance, and some of the copper in use in Australia's telecommunications infrastructure isn't that fresh, to put it kindly.
  • Bundled service or Naked DSL? Many ADSL2+ plans are sold as bundles along with a fixed-line telephone service, but you also have the option with some ISPs for "Naked DSL". Naked DSL uses the same copper lines but only activates the frequencies that DSL requires. This means you won't get a dial tone on your line, but you also won't have to pay for a landline phone service you may not need. It's smart to carefully check pricing. In some cases, a bundled service might be cheaper than its naked equivalent, especially when you factor in the reality that you've still got to pay line rental on the copper lines anyway.
  • Do I want bundled discounts? Most ISPs will bundle in a modem/router if you need one, although at this time it's worth ensuring that whatever device you're given is NBN-ready for future-proofing purposes. Other bundled goodies may include discounts if you've also got your mobile plan with the same carrier or possibly entertainment packages for your home theatre space.
