Compare Exetel NBN plans

Australia's biggest independent ISP brings its clout to the NBN.

What you need to know about Exetel NBN plans

Cheap, hassle-free Internet has been Exetel's focus since it was founded over a decade ago. It's worked out well, with Exetel claiming the honour of being the largest independent ISP in Australia. Servicing over 120,000 Aussies nationwide, the telco is looking to push that number even higher with its recent foray into the NBN market.

Ditching the numerous bundles and extraneous add-ons of its competitors, Exetel NBN plans stay true to the company's vision by focusing on simple, dedicated Internet packages. You won't find comprehensive phone plans or entertainment bundles here; aside from an optional home phone Voice over IP (VoIP) service, there's a minimum of fuss. Exetel offers ADSL and other services too, but the NBN is very much their focus.

What are the different Exetel NBN plans?

Exetel's NBN plans operate on no-lock-in, month-to-month contracts and come with unlimited monthly data. They are available to all Australians living in fixed-line areas of the NBN, supporting fibre to the premises (FTTP), fibre to the node (FTTN), fibre to the building (FTTB) and hybrid-fibre coaxial (HFC). Exetel offers two different speed options with these plans: Standard Plus (nbn50) and Premium (nbn100).

This leads to just two simple plans:

  • Standard Plus plan, which costs $79 a month
  • Premium plan, which costs $99 a month

Since the NBN speed tiers are based on the theoretical maximum speed possible and often don't reflect the actual speeds you'll get, Exetel provides the following guide to the typical average speeds during the hectic evening hours between 7:00pm and 11:00pm:

  • Standard Plus plans: 40.00Mbps typical evening speeds
  • Premium plans: 77.00Mbps typical evening speeds

When you sign up for one of Exetel's NBN plans, you'll need to pay a one-off set-up fee of $79. On the plus side, you get a Wi-Fi modem included with your service at no extra cost.
