Australians are becoming more addicted to consuming data - who doesn't love binge watching a series on Netflix after a hard day at work? Luckily, most providers offer unlimited Internet plans to make sure you'll never hit a data limit and get your Internet speed slowed down.

What should I consider when comparing unlimited Internet plans?

While the exact plans you can access depend on where you live and what type of NBN connection you have, here's what matters when it comes to comparing unlimited data plans:

  • Speed. NBN plans fall into 1 of 4 speed tiers, from 12–100Mbps. Within each tier, you'll want to look at the typical evening speed promised by each provider or the speed you can expect at night time when everyone's online. Keep in mind that not all speed tiers are available at all addresses. Your actual connection speed may also vary depending on things like hardware and Wi–Fi signal, though these are largely outside the control of providers.
  • Cost. Even between plans offering similar connections, there can be a fair variation in price. Prices range from around $50 to over $100 monthly, with the biggest price differences due to what connection speed they offer. Some of the more expensive options might include enticing extras, like Fetch TV.
  • Contract type. Broadband plans can either come as fixed-length contracts (e.g. 12 or 24 months) or month-to-month options. Generally, a fixed-length contract will offer reduced set-up fees or a bonus feature, but will charge you a hefty exit fee if you want to cancel your service before the term is up.
  • Extras.
    • Streaming services, e.g. Netflix, Stan
    • Paid TV packages, e.g. Fetch, Foxtel
    • Sports TV packages
    • Free modem
    • Discounts off mobile plan prices
    • Home phone included

Can I get unlimited broadband on-the-go?

If you're looking for unlimited data, there aren't a whole lot of alternatives to fixed-line connections. While mobile broadband is a reasonable choice when compared to the NBN, offering competitive speeds, there's nothing yet available that approaches the NBN's largely unconditional unlimited data plans.

It's worth noting that Telstra and Vodafone do offer so-called "endless" mobile data plans, but these are misleadingly titled. While it's true that you can use as much data as you want past a threshold at no extra cost, your connection speed gets throttled to a measly 1.5Mbps after you've used up your initial monthly allotment of data. It's hard to consider these even remotely as competitive unlimited mobile broadband alternatives to a fixed line.

All of this could be set to change with some home wireless broadband plans already offering 500GB per month. Even limited data plans are looking more attractive with the upcoming promise of 5G network speeds that may outperform the NBN. While fixed-line connections are still your best bet in terms of data per dollar, great alternatives appear to be on their way.
