amaysim selling NBN plans again: Is broadband about to get cheaper for you?


Telcos like to keep hush about the finer details until the last minute. However, we do know amaysim will launch NBN plans in the coming months and offer bundling discounts for mobile and internet.

Woah, things are heating up in the internet arena. The gloves are coming on, and more and more providers are ready to strike their competition.

Optus-owned amaysim's adding its name to the list after revealing plans to launch NBN plans alongside its prepaid mobile offers.

The details are scarce but we do know it'll offer bundling discounts to make it more enticing for customers to sign up for both mobile and internet.

Usually bundling discounts from other providers on Finder can slash $5 to $10 a month of your bill.

We also know:

  • It'll be offering a 30-day satisfaction guarantee
  • Its messaging focuses on fast speeds at an affordable price

But wait, didn't amaysim sell NBN plans back in the day?

Yep, you're not making things up. It used to sell NBN plans but in October 2018, it sold its broadband customers to Southern Phone, citing "the punitive wholesale costs imposed by the NBN", according to the Australian Financial Review.

But Optus acquired amaysim in November 2020 and since then things have been fairly peachy for the telco.

In fact, it won Finder's Customer Satisfaction Award in 2023 and it's the customer-centric approach plus competitive pricing it'll be banking on to win over households.

"amaysim plans to differentiate its NBN services through a combination of competitive pricing, exceptional customer service, and innovative offerings, including enhanced customer support with AI-driven solutions for quick decision-making and efficient service," an amaysim spokesperson said.

We understand the cost-of-living pressures many Australians face, so our plans are designed to provide high-speed internet at affordable prices. Additionally, we will leverage advanced technology to ensure reliable and fast connectivity, enhancing the overall user experience.

Competition between NBN providers gets fiercer

amaysim's plans come after Boost Mobile announced in March 2024 that it would also be selling broadband plans. No date has been confirmed yet.

In recent years we've also seen other smaller providers such as Tangerine and More take on larger brands with their mobile and internet offers.

amaysim taking its turn in the ring is another sounding bell for the likes of TPG and Telstra to keep them on their toes.

Things will get even more interesting from July 2024 as we start seeing more NBN price hikes - largely focused on lower speed tiers becoming expensive. Faster speeds - NBN 100 and above - will be cheaper in comparison.

This explains why amaysim's messaging is focused on making high-speed internet more affordable.

We'll keep you updated as we learn more, from both Boost and amaysim.
