What you need to know about Exetel ADSL plans

Founded with the goal of providing low-cost, bureaucracy-free broadband to the Australian public, Exetel has spent the last 10 years building a user base of over 100,000 Aussie homes and businesses, emerging as Australia's largest independent ISP. Rather than expand its services with more and more features, Exetel has used its experience to make its broadband plans as simple as possible.

You won't find any Foxtel subscription bundles or multi-tiered phone packages; plain, uncomplicated Internet is the order of the day. Other than a basic Voice over IP (VoIP) phone service, the biggest consideration you'll have is whether to sign on for 18 or 12 months, or on a month-to-month basis. Longer contracts have lower set-up fees and a bigger discount on Exetel's optional ADSL modem. However, you'll face a steep termination fee if you want to cancel your contract early.

What are the different Exetel ADSL plans?

For those waiting on the NBN rollout to reach them, Exetel offers an ADSL service delivered over Optus' wholesale broadband network. This service includes home phone line rental and a new phone number with the ability to make and receive calls on a pay-as-you-go basis. The plan is available on both a no-lock-in, month-to-month contract as well as a 12-month contract.

Regardless of contract length, pricing is as follows:

  • ADSL2+ Unlimited, which includes unlimited data for $54.99 a month

Exetel doesn't charge any set-up fees for its ADSL plans, regardless of whether you sign up on a month-to-month or 12-month contract. You do get a free Wi-Fi modem bundled in if you commit to the full year, however.

Before you sign up for the 12-month contract, however, you'll want to be aware of the early termination fee incurred if you decide to cancel your plan before the full term is up. This fee can be as much as $199.98, depending on how long you have left on your contract.
