Compare MyNetFone ADSL plans

Matt Sayer 17 May 2017 NEWS

As Australia's biggest Voice-over-Internet provider, MyNetFone knows a thing or two about connecting Aussies online.

What you need to know about MyNetFone ADSL plans

Long before the days of Skype and Google Hangouts, MyNetFone was pioneering the concept of voice chat over the Internet. As far back as 2004, its Voice over IP (VoIP) services were letting Aussies yak it up across the country without the need for a traditional phone line. Nowadays, MyNetFone's VoIP network is the largest in the country, with more than 3.2 billion minutes of voice chat passing through it every year.

Having established itself as the leader of Internet voice communications, MyNetFone has now shifted its sights to the broadband market. By taking its celebrated VoIP service and bundling it with high-speed ADSL Internet, the budding telco saves Aussies the hassle of having a separate phone line. And with all its ADSL plans available on 24-month, 12-month, and month-to-month contracts, you won't need to lock yourself into any long-term commitments you're not ready for.

What are the different MyNetFone ADSL plans?

MyNetFone offers four simple ADSL packages: a Basic plan, an Economy plan, a Standard plan and an Unlimited Bundle. The first three differ only in their monthly data caps. The Basic plan includes 20GB a month, the Economy plan includes 500GB a month and the Standard plan includes 1000GB a month. All three also come with MyNetFone's basic VoIP service, letting you make phone calls over your ADSL connection on a pay-as-you-go basis. The Unlimited Bundle takes things a step further with unlimited data and unlimited local, national, and Australian mobile calls every month.

Regardless of which plan you pick, MyNetFone will provide you with the fastest Internet speed available to you through ADSL. Theoretically, this is 24Mbps, but it'll be lower in practice thanks to factors such as how close you live to your local telephone exchange and the condition of the copper lines installed at your address.

How much do MyNetFone ADSL plans cost?

Building an award-winning VoIP network isn't cheap, and MyNetFone prices its ADSL plans accordingly. At the low end, the 20GB Basic plan will cost you $39.95 a month, increasing to $49.95 for the 500GB Economy plan, to $59.95 a month for the 1000GB Standard plan and to $69.95 a month for the Unlimited Bundle.

Depending on your chosen contract length, you may also need to pay an initial set-up fee when signing up for MyNetFone ADSL. On month-to-month contracts, this will run you $99; on 12-month contracts, it drops to $49; and on 24-month contracts, you won't need to pay a thing. Bear in mind, though, that both 12-month and 24-month contracts will slug you with an early termination fee of $199 if you want to cancel your service before the full term is up.

If you don't have an ADSL modem, MyNetFone will bundle one in for $99.95 on the Basic and Economy plans or throw it in for free on the Standard plan and the Unlimited Bundle. If you sign up for one of the latter two and you already have a compatible modem, MyNetFone will add a $50 credit to your account instead.

You won't have to worry about excess data charges with MyNetFone. If you go over your monthly limit, your Internet speed will simply be reduced to 256kbps for the rest of your current billing cycle. If you can't wait that long, you can purchase a data boost for $10 per 100GB to extend your data limit for the current month only.
