nbnSP offers unlimited ADSL plans for both regional and urban customers.

What you need to know about nbnSP ADSL plans

nbnSP may have "NBN" in its name, but that doesn't mean it purely focuses on plans running on the National Broadband Network. The ISP also has some simple, unlimited ADSL plans in its repertoire for customers who are not yet able to connect to the NBN at their address.

The capabilities of your ADSL plan with nbnSP will depend largely on your address and the availabilities at your local exchange. As such, nbnSP encourages a direct relationship with customers to ensure the best solution for your individual needs.

What are the different nbnSP ADSL bundles?

nbnSP offers both standard and performance ADSL plans. The difference between the two comes largely down to contention – with the standard plans, you will be sharing your bandwidth with a lot more people, which means it's much more likely to face congestion issues.

Performance plans offer lower contention, which nbnSP promises will improve stability, peak time speeds and pings. There's also the possibility of naked DSL connections depending on your local exchange, with nbnSP suggesting customers contact them to discuss the possibility of naked connections.

How much do nbnSP ADSL plans cost?

Connecting one of nbnSP's ADSL plans depends firstly on your location, with plans broken down into on-net and off-net networks. On-net plans start at $40 a month for a standard plan and $60 a month for a performance plan.

Off-net customers will be charged $60 a month for a standard plan and $90 a month for a performance plan. There's no lock-in contract for the standard ADSL connection plans, though customers looking for a performance-grade connection will need to sign up to a 12-month contract.

There are no connection fees on any of nbnSP's ADSL plans, and nbnSP also accepts Bitcoin as a form of payment, which may appeal to some customers.
