What to consider when choosing an NBN plan in Queensland

  • Which NBN technologies are available where I am? Just as it does in the rest of the nation, the NBN rollout incorporates multiple technologies. You may be in an area serviced by FTTP, FTTN, HFC cable, fixed wireless NBN or NBN satellite. You don't have a choice in the NBN technology used for broadband in your area. That is typically determined by your physical location and the realities of rolling out the network. The specific type of technology you get will determine your likely real-world speeds. For more on how the different technologies compare, check out our NBN technology comparison here.
  • When will other broadband services cease in my area? When the NBN declares an area ready for service, that means that by law, ADSL and other services are gradually depreciated, typically with an 18-month window for users to switch over to NBN services. You can't opt to simply stay on your existing broadband connection. What this means is that if you're in an already active area, the clock is ticking if you don't want your broadband services to stop. Even if all you want is a phone line, you'll have to switch that over to NBN VoIP as well. Our guide to switching to the NBN should help.
  • What speed tier should I choose? While the temptation may be strong to opt for the lowest cost plan, that's typically a speed limited plan. If it's just you using the connection for very low-impact web surfing that might be fine now, but bear in mind that most broadband contracts are for two years. If you're in a multi-person household, and especially if higher-speed applications such as high definition streaming or gaming are part of the mix, consider a higher speed plan, bearing in mind that those speeds are generally maximum speeds. In a multi-person household, you'll also be splitting that speed amongst all of you, so a higher speed plan can lessen online headaches.

  • Do I want (or need) bundled extras? An NBN-compatible modem is often a bundled inclusion with plans, although you can always provide your own. Other bundling options may include entertainment packages, or possibly discounts if you include other services such as mobile telephony. That's a careful balancing act to consider, depending on your precise needs.
