Dodo continues to offer some of the cheapest ADSL plans in Australia. Compare them for yourself right here.

What you need to know about Dodo's ADSL plans

Dodo has long been the budget ISP of choice for many Australians, and it's not hard to see why. Even as the telco expands its business with gas, electricity and insurance services, providing Aussies with cheap Internet access remains its primary focus. Not only is Dodo leading the charge in cheap NBN plans, it's still one of the most affordable providers of ADSL Internet within Australia, offering highly customisable plans to suit a range of online appetites.

These plans include both standalone ADSL connections as well as Internet and home phone bundles, with the latter supporting plenty of unlimited and international call packs for those who love a good chin wag. All plans are available on 24-month, 12-month and month-to-month contracts. The 24-month contract come with free modem rental and no connection fees, while the 12-month and month-to-month contracts carry a number of upfront costs to offset their shorter contract periods.

What are the different Dodo ADSL plans?

Dodo offers two main tiers within its ADSL plans: one with a 50GB monthly data cap and one with no monthly data cap. Regardless of which one you choose, your Internet speed will depend on your proximity to your local telephone exchange, the quality of the line connecting you to it and a number of other environmental factors. Both plans can also be bundled with home phone line rental. In the case of the 50GB plan, this will increase your monthly data allowance to 250GB.

If you choose the 50GB/250GB plan and exceed your monthly data limit, you'll be charged an excess data fee of $0.10 per MB until you hit the maximum monthly charge, at which point you'll have the option to purchase additional data blocks to continue using your service. If you choose not to buy additional blocks, you won't have Internet access until the monthly billing period ends.

How much do Dodo's ADSL plans cost?

If you're looking for dirt-cheap ADSL, Dodo has you covered. For $24.90 a month, you will get 50GB of data with no upfront costs on a 24-month contract. Plus, you'll get free rental of an NBN-ready modem, which is handy for when the NBN eventually replaces the copper network. If 50GB isn't enough, the unlimited-data plan is available for $10 more at $34.90 a month.

Home phone and Internet bundles start at $54.90 a month for pay-as-you-go calls and 250GB of data, while bumping that up to unlimited data will set you back $64.90 a month. If you're going to be using the phone a lot, an extra $10 a month will get you unlimited local, national, and mobile calls.

While contract length doesn't affect your monthly bill, both the month-to-month and 12-month contracts come with additional upfront costs. On a 12-month contract, you'll be looking at a $69 connection fee and a $50 modem rental fee, while a month-to-month contract ups that to $99 and $109 respectively. Additionally, if you opt for a 12-month or 24-month contract and want to end your plan early, you'll have to pay an early termination fee of $16 a month for every month remaining in your contract.
