Australia Post launches NBN plans to give Aussies another broadband provider to choose from.

Australia Post is expanding its telco credentials to resell NBN alongside mobile plans. You can get speeds between 11Mbps and 250Mbps if you sign up to any of the speed tiers ranging from NBN 12 to NBN 1000.

The good news is Aus Post's following the lead of other providers and giving 6-month sign-up discounts to new customers. That's 25% off across all NBN plans for the first half of the year.

Australia Post broadband plans start at $40.50 a month with its promotional discounts in play, all with unlimited data and no lock-in contract.

You also get:

  • The option to BYO modem or purchase one for $109 ($149 from 9 January 2023)
  • Easy switching – typically 1 business day if it's a simple switch
  • The option of an NBN 75 plan for fixed wireless connections
  • Additional phone line for $7.50 (for the first 6 months) and then $10 a month after

What are Australia Post's NBN plans?

You can get speeds between 11Mbps and 250Mbps depending on the NBN speed tier you sign up to. There are 8 plans to choose from.

Aus Post's NBN plans become a lot more favourable with its sign-up discounts. You have until 9 January 2023 to take advantage of these.

What do we think about Australia Post's broadband plans?

It's too soon to call out Australia Post's credentials when it comes to its NBN plans but based on price and speed alone, we reckon you can do better with other providers.

For example, Exetel offers its NBN 100 plan for $68.95 a month for the first 6 months, then $84.95 a month after. You also get 100Mbps typical evening speeds, the maximum available on this speed tier during the busy hours of the day (7–11pm).

Aus Post's NBN 100 plan is $70.50 a month for the first 6 months, then $94 a month after. Your maximum speeds during the busy hours are 97Mbps.

Similarly, SpinTel's NBN 50 plan also fares better. You pay $54 a month for the first 6 months, then $64.95 a month after for 50Mbps speeds.

In comparison, Aus Post offers its NBN 50 plan for $55.50 for the first 6 months, then $74 a month after. You get 48Mbps typical evening speeds during the busy hours.

While its introductory pricing is pretty sweet, if you're looking for reliable fast Internet speeds at similar or lower prices, we'd recommend shopping around.
