Compare Optus NBN plans

One of the country's largest broadband providers, Optus has a wide range of NBN plans and bundles to meet your needs.

What you need to know about Optus NBN plans

Optus has long stood alongside Telstra as one of the pillars of the Australian telecommunications industry, providing both mobile and broadband services to Australian customers around the country. With the rollout of the NBN, Optus has developed a series of plans and bundles to cater to a wide range of broadband needs using the new national broadband network.

Each bundle is available across the two top NBN speed tiers, with the Standard Plus NBN speed tier being the cheapest option and higher speeds incurring extra charges.

Thanks to its partnership with Fetch TV, Optus can offer its customers a solid entertainment package as part of its broadband bundles, which can include Optus's exclusive access to the English Premier League competition.

All of Optus's NBN plans are available on 24-month contracts and come with an unlimited data allowance.

What are the different Optus NBN bundles?

Optus offers two different NBN bundles:

  • Ultra bundle. An NBN broadband service with a Standard Plus NBN connection, unlimited data and a pay-as-you-go VoIP phone service.
  • Ultra Entertainment bundle. Adds a Fetch TV Mini set-top box, a subscription to 35 different streaming channels and free access to Optus Sports.

How much do Optus NBN plans cost?

Pricing for Optus' NBN plans start at $70 per month, which includes unlimited data and a pay-as-you-go phone service. You can increase the speed of this plan by opting for a speed boost add-on, which will increase the cost of the plan.

The Ultra Entertainment bundle starts at $90 per month.

What's included with the Fetch TV My Entertainment bundles?

Fetch TV is a powerful pay TV platform that uses the Internet to deliver more than 35 entertainment channels to your TV. As part of the Optus NBN bundles, Optus includes a Fetch TV Mini DVR and the Entertainment channel pack, which includes more than 35 channels. You can pause and rewind live TV on any streaming channel, including free-to-air TV, with enough tuners to be able to record up to six channels while watching something else.

It also offers quick and easy access to streaming services like Netflix and Stan, as well as catch-up TV services like ABC iview, SBS On Demand, 9Now, 7Plus and TENplay.

Perhaps more interestingly, though, is the ability to access the Optus Sports service, which is the exclusive channel for watching the English Premier League in Australia.

      Hello Danny,

      Thank you for your inquiry.

      The channels/shows you have mentioned are not available in Optus Fetch TV, which would be your subscription service under Optus NBN Plans. You can read more about Fetch on this page.

      Optus TV featuring Foxtel services are available in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane or are within cable or HFC-cable enabled area, you may confirm with Optus directly if they offer these in there.

      Hope this helps.
