What you need to know about MyNetFone NBN plans

As its name suggests, MyNetFone entered the telecommunications industry with the goal of providing a high-quality phone service over the Internet. Back in 2004, it was one of the first companies to attempt such a thing and in the years since it has built itself into Australia's largest provider of Voice over IP (VoIP) services. Even the corporate and government sectors have made use of its award-winning VoIP network.

Following its success in the Internet phone market, MyNetFone has expanded its operations into the broadband business. Key to this new venture is its range of NBN plans. These plans combine the high-speed fibre Internet of the NBN with MyNetFone's renowned VoIP service, delivering a phone and Internet service through a single cable. For added versatility, all plans are available on 24-month, 12-month and month-to-month contracts.

What are the different MyNetFone NBN plans?

MyNetFone's NBN plans are split into three tiers: Basic NBN, Unlimited NBN and an Unlimited NBN Bundle. The Basic NBN plan includes 200GB of data and pay-as-you-go calls, the Unlimited NBN plan includes unlimited data and pay-as-you-go calls and the Unlimited NBN Bundle combines unlimited data with unlimited local, national and mobile calls throughout Australia.

Each of these tiers comes with a choice of three Internet speeds. The default Fast speed offers 12Mbps, the mid-level Superfast speed offers 25Mbps and the premium Ultrafast speed offers 100Mbps.

Regardless of which plan you go with, it's worth mentioning that any power outages or disruptions to MyNetFone's network will leave you unable to use your phone. Where traditional phone services continue to function during a blackout, MyNetFone's VoIP service relies on your modem having power and your Internet connection remaining stable.

How much do MyNetFone NBN plans cost?

At the standard Fast speed, the MyNetFone Basic NBN plan will cost you $49.99 a month, the Unlimited NBN plan will set you back $59.99 a month and the Unlimited NBN Bundle will cost you $69.99 a month. If you want to upgrade to a faster speed, the Superfast speed will cost you an extra $10 a month, while the Ultrafast speed will cost you an extra $30 a month.

The length of your contract will also have an impact on how much you'll pay. If you opt for a month-to-month contract, you'll need to cover the $199 set-up fee and pay an additional $99 for an NBN-compatible modem. Signing up for 12 months will get you the modem for free and reduce the set-up fee to $49, while signing up for 24 months will waive both fees.

Additionally, if you choose the Unlimited NBN Bundle on a 24-month contract, you'll get your first month free. However, if you do sign up for a 12-month or 24-month contract and you want to cancel your service before the end of your contract period, you'll be hit with an Early Termination fee of $199.

Thankfully, MyNetFone doesn't charge excess usage fees. If you choose the 200GB plan and use more than that in a month, your Internet speed will slow down to 256kbps until the end of your current billing cycle.
