What to consider when choosing an ADSL2+ plan in Sydney

  • When will I have to switch over to the NBN? If you're considering an ADSL2+ service, you should be aware that it's a technology living on borrowed time. As the NBN rollout progresses, ADSL exchanges are sequentially switched of, typically over an 18-month time span. Your ISP will switch you to an NBN plan if you're still under contract, but you may do better opting for a short-term month-to-month ADSL2+ contract to allow you to shop around for your best NBN plan.
  • What speeds am I likely to get? ADSL2+ has a theoretical top speed of 24Mbps down, but that's a speed you'd only ever see if you happened to live in an exchange. The length of the copper line between you and the exchange, as well as the condition of that copper line, can have a significant effect on your broadband experience.
  • Bundled with a phone line or Naked DSL? Most ADSL2+ plans are sold as bundles along with a fixed-line telephone service, but there is another option called "Naked DSL". It uses the same copper lines but only activates the frequencies that DSL requires. This means you won't get a dial tone at all, but you also won't have to pay for a landline phone service you may not need. However, careful comparison is vital as 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 line anyway.
  • Do I want bundled discounts? Most ISPs will bundle in a modem/router if you need one, although it's ideally worth ensuring that whatever device you're given is NBN-ready as well for future-proofing purposes. Beyond that, check for bundled entertainment options, and whether you can get a further discount by bundling in a mobile service alongside your ADSL2+ broadband.
