Compare iPrimus naked DSL plans

Alex Kidman 31 July 2017 NEWS

iPrimus no longer offers naked DSL plans for folks who don't want or need a landline phone service, so compare all iPrimus ADSL plans below.

Why choose naked DSL?

Naked DSL services use the same copper infrastructure also used for ADSL/ADSL2+ services, but with only the frequencies needed for broadband and none of the frequencies used for standard landline telephony in place.

So what you're doing is using a line where there's no dial tone, because the only part of the line that is active is the part needed for DSL broadband services. That also means you're not paying for a bundled landline service that you may have little need for.

However, even with a naked DSL connection, you'll still be paying a line rental charge. That's because you're still using the same infrastructure as a regular ADSL/ADSL2+ customer, just in a different way. It's always worth comparing the cost of a naked DSL plan against a full bundled ADSL/ADSL2+ plan, because sometimes the bundled plan can be cheaper. There's nothing stopping you from signing up and never plugging in an actual handset on a regular ADSL/ADSL2+ plan.

It's also worth considering contract length. By definition, any naked DSL plan is one that's due to be supplanted by the incoming NBN rollout. Once the NBN comes to town, the standard infrastructure that services DSL services will be gradually shuttered, making a switch to an NBN plan an inevitability if you want to continue getting high-speed broadband services.

Why choose iPrimus?

iPrimus offers a range of broadband products and services, including full NBN packages, so even if you do sign up for an iPrimus naked DSL package, you can always shift to an NBN plan when the time comes to switch. iPrimus also offers plans on a variety of contract terms, which is great if you only need a short-term plan, or for that matter if you want to sign up for a longer-term plan.
