NBN usage quiz

It can be hard to know which NBN plan to choose. We've designed a simple NBN usage quiz designed to deliver a personalised comparison of NBN plans that cater to your needs.

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 two bonuses: on iPrimus' 100GB plan, you can choose between an extra 100GB of data every month or unlimited standard calls to Aussie landlines, while on the Unlimited and Fetch bundles, you can choose between 2000 international minutes to select countries and unlimited standard calls to Aussie mobiles.

What are the different iPrimus NBN plans?

iPrimus delivers NBN connections across all standard NBN access technologies, supporting customers in fibre to the premises (FTTP), fibre to the node (FTTN), fibre to the building (FTTB), hybrid-fibre coaxial (HFC) and fixed wireless coverage areas. Importantly, iPrimus makes no distinction between fixed wireless and fixed-line NBN services.

Unlike some other providers, iPrimus appears to offer NBN connections to customers on only one of NBN's speed tiers: Standard Plus (nbn50). A second speed tier, Premium (nbn100) is available for an extra charge, but it is not prominently advertised.

The two main iPrimus NBN Plans include unlimited data and are priced as follows:

  • Unlimited data plan for $80 per month
  • Entertainment bundle for $90 per month

For each plan offering, customers have a choice of the stated price for Standard Plus NBN speeds. Though it isn't readily apparent, customers can in fact pay extra to receive NBN Premium (nbn100) speeds, but at an extra $30 a month, this makes iPrimus plans rather expensive.

iPrimus quotes the following typical evening speeds for its various plan tiers:

  • Supercharged: 40.90Mbps
  • Max: 83Mbps

Customers can also choose between three contract terms, as follows:

  • Month-by-month contract term, with $0 setup and $100 modem fee (plus $15 processing and handling)
  • 12-month contract, with $0 setup and $60 modem fee (plus $15 processing and handling)
  • 24-month contract, with $0 setup and $0 modem fee (plus $15 processing and handling), plus a sign-up bonus

It's worth noting, though, that the Entertainment NBN Broadband plan is only offered on a 24-month contract, and includes a $55 activation fee. For all plans, iPrimus provides the modem only while the customer's service is active with iPrimus. Customers have to return the modem if the service is cancelled or changed to another provider.

Depending on your choice of plan, iPrimus also offers customers on 24-month contracts a sign-up bonus as follows:

  • Unlimited and Entertainment NBN Broadband customers can choose from a national mobile call pack (giving them unlimited calls to local/national and Australian mobile destinations) or 2000 minutes of international calls to 25 countries

Being a "traditional" telecommunications company, iPrimus plan offerings are all bundled offers, technically speaking. All plans include phone line rental and pay-as-you-go (PAYG) calls, whereas the two higher plans (if the higher speed tier is chosen) include unlimited national landline calls, and optional unlimited mobile calls as a sign-up bonus, if eligible.
