Compare NuSkope NBN plans

Matt Sayer 19 May 2017 NEWS

From a niche Adelaide telco to a nationwide NBN provider, NuSkope is growing fast.

What you need to know about NuSkope NBN plans

When NuSkope was founded in 2007, its primary goal was to deliver high-speed wireless Internet to areas of Adelaide typically branded as broadband blackspots. In the years since, not only has NuSkope achieved this, it has expanded its operations to include nationwide delivery of the NBN.

NuSkope NBN plans offer a basic fibre Internet connection along with an optional Voice over IP (VoIP) phone service in place of a traditional phone service. While VoIP functions much the same as a regular phone, it requires a constant Internet connection to make and receive calls. In the event of a power outage, VoIP won't work unless you have a battery backup for your NBN modem.

On the plus side, all NuSkope's NBN plans are available on both month-to-month and 24-month contracts, giving you the freedom to sign up without locking yourself in for the long haul.

What are the different NuSkope NBN plans?

NuSkope offers two main data caps with its NBN plans: 500GB and unlimited. For a Basic (nbn12) connection, it also offers a 100GB option. Speed-wise, it supports Basic, Standard Plus (nbn50) and Premium (nbn100) NBN connections.

If you live in an area with Fibre to the Premises (FTTP) NBN, you can upgrade any of the standard NBN plans with a VoIP phone service. NuSkope offers two different VoIP options: a pay-as-you-go plan and one with unlimited local, national, and mobile calls every month.

How much do NuSkope NBN plans cost?

NuSkope's NBN plans lean towards the more expensive end of the market, with a Basic NBN connection and 100GB of monthly data weighing in at $49.95 a month. That jumps up to $59.95 a month for 500GB of data and $69.95 for the unlimited plan. To boost the speed on any of the plans, you'll be looking at $15 extra a month for a Standard Plus connection and $30 extra a month for a Premium NBN connection.

Provided you're in an FTTP-enabled area, adding a VoIP phone service will set you back an additional $4.95 a month for pay-as-you-go calls or an extra $24.95 a month for unlimited local, national, and mobile calls.

Contract length also has an impact on how much you'll pay. If you opt for a month-to-month contract, you'll need to cover a $99.95 setup fee for NuSkope to install your service, although NuSkope will waive this fee on 24-month contracts. However, if you sign up for 24 months and decide to cancel your service before the full two years is up, you'll be liable for an early termination fee of up to $150.

While NuSkope will throw in a free NBN modem if you need one, the modem does not come with Wi-Fi capabilities. If you want to set up a wireless home network, NuSkope will sell you a wireless router for an extra $99.95.

No matter which data cap you choose, you'll never have to pay excess usage fees with NuSkope. If you go over your monthly data limit, your Internet speed will simply drop to 256kbps for the rest of the current billing cycle.
