NBN plan prices are increasing: Here’s the full list of changes


With NBN 50 prices on the rise, the difference in price between an NBN 50 and NBN 100 plan has gone down from $17 to just $9 on average.

The 2 most popular NBN speed tiers are being pitted against each other as providers change their prices.

The most notable change based on NBN's new pricing framework has been a shakeup in the cost of NBN 50 plans.

The gist is providers have increased their price for NBN 50 by $5 to $11 a month following NBN's decision to make its wholesale price slightly more expensive.

So far, 17 out of 44 NBN providers on Finder have changed their prices and more could follow suit in the new year.

Out of the 17, Optus is the only provider that didn't increase prices for existing customers.

Why are these NBN price changes important?

NBN 50 is the most popular speed used by 42.5% of Australians, followed by NBN 100 at 25.5%.

While most providers have increased prices of their NBN 50 plans, some providers have actually lowered their monthly price for an NBN 100 plan.

This begs the question, should you switch to NBN 100 since it's cheaper or stick to NBN 50 when it's gone up in price?

NBN 50 plans have increased in price by 8.7% on average based on ongoing costs and excluding any promotional discounts.

The biggest increases have come from smaller providers such as Tangerine, More, SpinTel and TeleChoice. However, they're still cheaper than some of the bigger providers like Telstra and Optus.

Here's a look at the list of providers that have made changes.

Not every provider that's increased the cost of their NBN 50 plan has lowered the price for NBN 100. Most have kept NBN 100 prices the same - Foxtel is the only one to increase the cost by $5 a month.

The biggest takeaway is that the monthly price gap between an NBN 50 and NBN 100 is now $9 a month on average instead of $17. That's double the internet speed for a smaller price difference.

Keep in mind, that we've excluded NBN 100/40 plans as these aren't offered by all providers.

But do you actually need a faster NBN plan?

It depends on your internet needs and how many people you have in your home who carry out online activities regularly.

NBN 100 is a solid option for heavy internet users or households of 3-4 people who are online simultaneously.

But if you don't need faster speeds, you may be better off sticking with NBN 50 and saving $5 to $10 a month.

The good news is switching NBN plans and providers is easier than ever.

  • There are plenty of deals floating around including 6-month sign-up discounts. These can lower the yearly cost of your plan. You can also switch plans or providers once the offer runs its course.
  • No lock-in contracts are now the norm.
  • A lot of providers allow you to BYO modem as long as it's compatible.

Either way, now's a good time to shop around for an NBN deal even if you stick to an NBN 50 plan. It'll sort you out for the new year.

      Hi Peter, the comparison table shows Finder Partners, however, you can easily compare more providers such as Telstra by adjusting the filters and deselecting the ‘Only show products with direct links & enquiry options’ box. Hope this helps.

    I have had a call from Aussie B/band saying I can have the optic fibre from the street into my home – done by NBN. Is this a genuine offer and do you know the cost?

      MariamDecember 8, 2023Finder

      Hi Lorraine, for some context, NBN’s currently rolling out a fibre upgrade program so that eligible homes can get faster and more reliable internet. Aussie Broadband is likely calling you to let you know your property is eligible and ready for the upgrade. I would suggest putting your address on their website to see if you are eligible: or just call them up directly to verify. Hope this helps!
