What to consider when choosing an NBN plan in New South Wales

  • Which NBN technologies can I get? Connecting to the NBN doesn't involve hooking up to just one technology. There are multiple different NBN technologies at play, including FTTP, FTTN, HFC cable, fixed wireless NBN and NBN satellite. You don't have a choice in the NBN technology provided for broadband in your area. Which technology you get is determined by your physical location. The specific type of technology you get will also have an effect on your likely real-world speeds. For more on how the different technologies compare, check out our NBN technology comparison here.
  • When will regular broadband services stop in my area? Once an area is declared ready for service by NBN, ADSL and other fixed line broadband technologies are switched off. This usually happens within an 18-month window, allowing users to migrate over to NBN services. You cannot decide to stay on your existing broadband connection. If you're in an area already declared NBN ready, the clock is ticking if you don't want your broadband services to be interrupted. Even if all you require is phone service, you'll have to switch that over to NBN VoIP as well. Our guide to switching to the NBN should help.
  • What speed tier do I need? The lowest cost NBN plans are typically those on the 12/1 speed tier, but that's not going to be an ideal choice except for the lightest of broadband users. Bear in mind that most broadband contracts are for two years. If you're in a heavy use household, or even just one with multiple people residing, higher speed plans will be a better fit to ensure that your NBN experience meets your expectations.

  • Do I want (or need) bundled extras? Most ISPs will offer you a bundled NBN-compatible modem as part of your contract, sometimes at no additional cost, although you're also free to source your own depending on your needs. You may also be able to get other bundled services such as streaming entertainment or sports packages, or discounts for including other services such as mobile with a single telco. As always, balance your budget and needs, because not all bundles make good financial sense.
