NBNpricesgoingup_1800x1000

NBN prices are going up by up to $9 a month. And yep, we already went through this less than 12 months ago.

Internet providers are raising prices because wholesale costs from NBN Co have officially gone up as of 1 July 2024, making it a bit more expensive for providers to buy bandwidth.

While they're being bumped by $2.22 to $2.52 depending on the speed tier, that's the cost to your provider. Not you.

Hop, skip or jump to any of the providers listed to see what changes they're making to their NBN plans. It's important to note that NBN 50 plans are the most popular among Australians but have become more expensive as of last year. The trend continues in 2024.

We'll keep updating the list so don't forget to bookmark this story.

So, how do I save on my internet bills then?

Even though it may seem that just about everyone is raising prices, there's still a big difference between how much each internet provider charges.

Moral of the story? It pays to shop around. Plus there are a bunch of 6-month sign-up deals and more floating around, but you'll need to hurry since some expire soon.

You can also take home wireless broadband for a spin as it can be a good alternative to the NBN.
