Compare SpinTel ADSL2+ plans and bundles
If you can't get connected to the NBN just yet, SpinTel has a range of ADSL2+ plans and bundles to keep you online.
What you need to know about SpinTel ADSL2+ plans
The National Broadband Network (NBN) is rapidly approaching the halfway point of its rollout, which means that more than half of Australia is still waiting to connect to the NBN. If you fall into this category, SpinTel offers a range of ADSL2+ bundles and plans to ensure you remain connected to the World Wide Web.
Just like SpinTel's NBN plans, the ADSL2+ bundles include a range of customisable features, from data allowance to modem inclusion. Because of the limitation of ADSL technology, there's no option for speed tiers, but ADSL customers do have the ability to bring their own modem.
SpinTel does offer ADSL2+ connections both with and without a home phone inclusion, though the bundles are slightly cheaper than the exclusive broadband offering, so it may be better to opt for a bundle and simply avoid using the phone line.
What are the different SpinTel ADSL2+ bundles?
SpinTel is all about offering customers a plan that is customised to their individual needs. As such, you can tweak many of the different factors of a SpinTel ADSL2+ plan:
- Data. SpinTel offers three distinct data allowances: 40GB, 200GB/500GB and Unlimited. That middle level depends on whether you're opting for a bundle or just a standalone ADSL2+ connection, with the bundle including 500GB and the standalone broadband only offering 200GB.
- Phone options. Every SpinTel ADSL2+ bundle includes a phone connection. The basic "Small" level is included in the plan and doesn't include any calls, but charges as you use the phone line. The "Medium" tier includes unlimited standard local and national calls, while the "Large" tier adds unlimited mobile calls as well. Standalone ADSL2+ plans don't offer any call options.
- Contract length. There are three separate contract lengths for ADSL2+ customers. Opting for a 24-month contract may not be the best option for ADSL customers with the NBN rollout as far progressed as it is, but SpinTel does offer a $50 credit on your first bill for signing a 24-month contract. 12-month contracts include a $25 credit on that first bill, while month-to-month plans are available without any setup fee for bundles (standalone connections have a $49 setup fee), with the added benefit of being able to switch providers if you're unsatisfied for any reason.
- Modem gateway. While SpinTel requires new NBN customers to purchase a modem gateway, ADSL customers have the option of bringing their own modem when signing up. If you do need a new modem gateway, SpinTel's Standard Netcomm VDSL/ADSL N300/WiFi/Gateway/VoIP NF10WV and Advanced Netcomm VDSL/ADSL WiFi VoIP GIGABIT Gateway NF17ACV are also available, and have the added benefit of being NBN compatible, so you can use them when your address is updated to the NBN.
How much do SpinTel ADSL2+ plans and bundles cost?
You can get connected to SpinTel's ADSL2+ bundles for as little as $39.95 a month, with no lock-in contract. There are premiums added to that monthly cost for additional data levels and adding call packs to your bundle, which can take the monthly price to $74.95.
If you opt for a standalone ADSL2+ broadband connection, pricing starts at $44.95 and scales up to $59.95 for unlimited data, but without any calls included in the price.
