Compare TPG Naked DSL Plans

Alex Kidman 27 July 2017

TPG's Naked DSL plans are ideal if you want ADSL2+ broadband but don't want a fixed phone service to go with it.

Why choose Naked ADSL2+ plans?

Naked ADSL2+ plans use the same copper infrastructure as regular ADSL/ADSL2+ plans, but exclude the specific frequencies used for fixed-line telephones. If you no longer feel the need for a landline phone (or you're sick of scam callers on landline numbers), they can be a solid choice for you, although they're not always cheaper than plans that bundle a fixed-line service.

Bear in mind that you'll still have to pay a "line rental" fee as part of a Naked DSL plan, which is separate from any service fee for a fixed-line phone. You need to pay for the infrastructure used to deliver the service to you, even if the phone frequencies are not available to you.

What do I need for a TPG Naked DSL connection?

The critical factor you'll need to get a Naked DSL connection through TPG is to be on a TPG-enabled phone exchange, which means an exchange that TPG has placed its own communications equipment in.

You'll also need an existing copper lead-in with a dial tone on that line because that will make provisioning your Naked DSL service substantially simpler. It is feasible if you're an existing TPG DSL subscriber to switch to Naked DSL, but this will involve some downtime when you switch over.

It's well worth considering your future plans when signing up for any DSL service, especially around any costs you might incur for installation or contract cancellation given the nationwide NBN rollout that is set to be completed in 2020.

Why choose TPG?

TPG provides a wide range of telecommunications services, including TPG ADSL, TPG NBN and TPG FTTB, along with a wide variety of TPG mobile phone products. The TPG group also owns a number of Australian ISP brands such as iiNet and Internode and is set to launch its own mobile network in Australia in 2018.
