The energy giant is giving customers 30,000 bonus Everyday Rewards points with any of its NBN plans.

Sign up to any NBN plan from Origin and get 30,000 bonus Everyday Rewards points – equivalent to $150 Everyday Rewards dollars. Origin NBN plans start from $74 per month.

With things getting more expensive, we're always on the lookout to save on our bills. Origin's offering you a chance to cut back on your grocery costs.

Previously, you could only earn 30,000 Everyday Rewards points with Origin Energy. However, the retailer's branching out to include its NBN plans into the mix.

What are Origin NBN plans like?

Origin NBN plans start at the NBN 25 speed tier and go all the way up to gigabit speeds, the fastest available in Australia.

There's no lock-in contract on any of its plans and you also have the option to BYO modem.

If you're an existing Origin Energy customer, you're also eligible for an extra $10 off each month if you bundle your Origin energy and internet services.

Here's a look at prices with and without the discounts across the different NBN speed tiers.

  • Keep in mind. You can only sign up to an NBN 250 or NBN 1000 plan if your property has an FTTP or HFC connection type.

Does Origin offer good internet speeds?

Theoretically, yes.

You get close to the maximum typical evening speeds across the majority of Origin's NBN plans.

For example, Origin's NBN 50 plan offers 48Mbps speeds during the busy hours of the day (7pm–11pm). The maximum speed you can get on this tier is 50Mbps.

However, it's likely you'll be able to get even better speeds for cheaper prices elsewhere so it might be best to compare your options before signing up

The bottom line: Should you sign up with Origin?

Origin's NBN plans are on the pricier side compared to its competitors.

However, bundling discounts make its offer slightly more promising and close the average price of NBN plans on Finder across the various speed tiers.

Given there's no lock-in contract, you could sign up for anywhere between 1 and 6 months and then switch to a cheaper NBN provider once you've take advantage of your Everyday Rewards points.

  • Good to know. This is a one-off offer to new customers only. Unlike its energy plans, you can't get ongoing Rewards points.
