Compare iPrimus NBN plans

Matt Sayer 2 May 2017 NEWS

As one of the few telcos with its own fibre network, iPrimus has a leg up on other NBN providers.


What you need to know about iPrimus NBN plans

Over the last 20 years, iPrimus has played a prominent role in getting Aussies online. With facilities in 66 major cities across Australia, its network provides nationwide broadband coverage independent of Telstra's infrastructure. Add to that a dedicated fibre network in the five major capital cities, and iPrimus has positioned itself as one of the largest telecommunication providers in the country.

To stay at the front of the pack, iPrimus has jumped headfirst into the growing NBN market, bringing high-speed fibre broadband to Aussie homes with its range of NBN plans. More than just Internet, these plans offer a variety of home phone services and entertainment packages, including comprehensive call packages and Fetch bundles that provide access to thousands of movies and dozens of premium TV channels streamed instantly over the Internet.

All NBN plans from iPrimus, excluding the Fetch bundle, are available on 24-month, 12-month and month-to-month contracts. Signing up on a monthly basis means you won't have to pay any termination fees if you decide to cancel your service early, but you'll have to pay a steeper modem fee upfront.

Additionally, signing up for 24 months on any plan gets you a choice of one of three bonuses: on iPrimus' 100GB plan, you can choose between getting $5 off your monthly bill, an extra 100GB of data every month and unlimited standard calls to Aussie landlines; on the Unlimited and Fetch bundles, you can choose between $5 off your monthly bill, 2000 international minutes to select countries and unlimited standard calls to Aussie mobiles.

What are the different iPrimus NBN plans?

iPrimus structures its NBN plans around two main categories: data caps and connection speeds. On the data side of things, iPrimus offers a 100GB cap as well as an option for unlimited data every month. Connection speeds come in at 12Mbps, 25Mbps and 100Mbps variants. Depending on where you live, some of these services may not be available at your premises, so make sure to check your NBN availability first. Whichever combination of data cap and connection speed you go with, you'll have the option to sign on for one month, 12 months or 24 months.

Every iPrimus NBN plan comes with phone line rental bundled in, and Unlimited plans on a 25Mbps connection or higher also throw in unlimited local and national calls every month.

If you're looking for a complete entertainment package, the Fetch bundle combines an NBN connection, phone line rental, and a premium Fetch subscription, which includes a Fetch Mighty set-top box and over 35 pay TV channels, including MTV, ESPN, and Nickelodeon. Like the Unlimited plans, you'll also get unlimited local and national calls if you sign up for a 25Mbps connection or higher.

How much do iPrimus NBN plans cost?

With so many services packed in, iPrimus's NBN plans lean towards the higher end of broadband pricing. The cheapest 100GB plan with a 12Mbps connection and pay-as-you-go calls will run you $60 a month, while the same plan with unlimited data will cost you $70 a month. Upping your speed to 100Mbps will set you back $100 a month for 100GB of data and $110 a month for an unlimited data cap.

Prepare your wallet if you're looking to grab the Fetch bundle. At the low end, combining Fetch with a 12Mbps connection and unlimited data will run you $80 a month, while you'll need to set aside $120 a month if you want to bump that up to 100Mbps.

Finally, all month-to-month contracts come with a modem fee of $100. On 12-month contracts, this drops $60, while iPrimus will throw the modem in for free if you sign up for a 24-month contract. On Fetch plans, you'll also have to pay a $55 activation fee upfront. If you cancel your 24-month or 12-month plan before your contract is up, you'll have to pay an early termination fee of up to $300 depending on the time left on your contract.
