Home phone bundles were very common in the era of ADSL connections, but have become less common with widespread mobile phone use and the rollout of the NBN.

The good news is, if you're still keen to get a home phone line, there are a lot of options available.

The table below shows providers that include the price of a home phone line in their plan prices. There are other providers that offer call pack add-ons that haven't been factored into the total monthly price – we haven't shown these providers below.

How do home phone and Internet bundles work?

  • Many providers offer a home phone with PAYG calls for free
  • Unlimited standard calls in Australia cost an average of $10 extra per month
  • One provider looks after both your home phone and Internet bill
  • Potential international inclusions to certain countries

What is the cheapest phone and Internet package?

The cheapest NBN bundle depends on how fast you need your Internet to be. Most providers that let you add on a home phone bundle to your plan will charge a flat $10 extra on top of your plan fees, so your speed tier will affect the price the most.

The cheapest NBN plan you can buy is in the slowest speed tier, NBN 12. This means the cheapest phone and Internet package will usually be on this speed tier.

  • Tip: If you want a faster plan, you can still compare to get a good deal. Some providers have lower set-up fees or allow you to BYO modem. Other providers may also offer discounts on a contract (though beware that high exit fees may apply for leaving early).

You can toggle the price filter in the table above to find a plan that suits your budget.

What's included in an NBN bundle?

Typically, NBN bundles will include:

  • An Internet connection with the plan speed you signed up for.
  • An active home phone line (many providers offer a free line with PAYG phone calls).
  • Unlimited standard calls in Australia, depending on the plan or call pack you've selected.
  • Free mobile calls may require a better call pack, depending on the provider.
  • Potential international inclusions.
  • A combined bill for both your Internet and phone services.

Which providers have home phone and Internet bundles?

The majority of NBN providers give you the option of a home phone line and unlimited standard calls within Australia. The table on this page only shows plans where your home phone line is pre-bundled with Internet, but this doesn't mean other providers don't sell phone lines.

Other popular providers that offer additional call packs include Optus, TPG, Aussie Broadband and iiNet.

Is it worth it to get a home phone and Internet bundle?

This depends on how you use it. If you have a mobile phone plan, you might prefer to use this for the majority of your calls. Otherwise, if you make more than four or five calls a month on your home phone, it's almost certainly worth spending an extra $5 or $10 per month for unlimited calls.

Consider TPG as an example. It charges 25c per minute for national calls, with a maximum of $2 for the first 20 minutes (unlimited thereafter). If you make five 20-minute calls per month or even make one hour-long call during the month, you'll almost certainly save by paying the extra $10 for unlimited call inclusions.
