ADSL plans that make the world a better place? That's what Inspired Broadband is all about.
What you need to know about Inspired Broadband ADSL plans
Many telcos claim to put the community first but few are as true to their word as Inspired Broadband. Teaming up with Care Australia, the Internet provider is working to bring crucial education programs to areas such as Cambodia where many kids don't have the means to go to school. By signing up with Inspired Broadband, Aussies can contribute to initiatives like this while also getting a good deal on their home Internet.
Inspired Broadband's community focus extends to its range of simple, affordable ADSL plans. All are available on commitment-free, month-to-month contracts, with network coverage extending to over 90% of the Australian population. And when the NBN rolls out in your area, you'll be able to transfer your ADSL service with no installation fees and minimal fuss.
What are the different Inspired Broadband ADSL plans?
Inspired Broadband offers both standalone ADSL plans and ADSL bundles with home phone line rental packed in. Standalone ADSL plans are only available if your house is already hooked up to an active phone line. If it's not, you'll have to go with an ADSL bundle and pay an additional setup fee to get a new line installed.
All standalone plans and ADSL bundles come with unlimited data to use each month. Internet speeds will vary depending on a number of different factors, including how close you live to your local telephone exchange and the quality of the phone line installed at your address. At best, you'll see speeds of up to 24Mbps.
By default, Inspired Broadband's ADSL bundles come with pay-as-you-go calls but you can upgrade this with unlimited national and unlimited mobile calls by purchasing optional call packs.
How much do Inspired Broadband ADSL plans cost?
While Inspired Broadband's ADSL coverage reaches over 90% of the Australian population, you'll have to pay a premium if you live outside the country's major metropolitan regions. Standalone ADSL, for example, will cost metro customers $38 a month, whereas customers in regional Australia will be up for $58 a month. Meanwhile, the standard ADSL bundle with pay-as-you-go calls will set metro residents back $68 a month and regional Aussies $88 a month.
Depending on your current phone line installation, you may have to pay an additional connection fee when signing up for Inspired Broadband's ADSL bundle. Transferring your phone number from an existing service won't cost you a thing but if you haven't got an active phone line, you'll need to pay a $59 activation fee upfront. However, if there's no phone line installed at your house, you'll need to pay $299 to get one installed. If you're planning on making heavy use of your new phone service, you can add unlimited national calls to the basic ADSL bundle for $10 extra a month, or unlimited national and mobile calls for an additional $25 a month.
While you'll pay the same monthly fee regardless of contract length, you'll have to front a $99 connection fee if you sign up on a month-to-month basis. This fee is waived on 12-month contracts but the catch is you'll have to pay an Early Termination Fee of up to $199 if you cancel your contract before the full year has passed.
Finally, if you don't have an ADSL modem, Inspired Broadband will provide you with a Wi-Fi modem router for $99 with any of its ADSL plans or bundles.
