What you need to know about Telstra ADSL plans

Once upon a time, Telstra was known as Telecom, it was owned by the government and it built the copper landline phone network that formed the basis of Australia's broadband system before the rollout of the NBN.

A lot has changed since that time, but despite the changes, Telstra still offers a selection of ADSL bundles to customers still using the copper network.

Telstra's ADSL bundles reflect the company that Telstra has become. Not only do they offer a broadband connection, but they bundle in both landline line rental and local and national calls to standard fixed lines.

When signing up for a 24-month contract, the larger plans also include a bundled Telstra TV with a bonus entertainment package. Eligible customers can also choose to add in a Foxtel subscription as part of their broadband bundle.

What are the different Telstra ADSL bundles?

Telstra splits up its ADSL bundles based on monthly data allowance. The M bundle will deliver 500GB of monthly data and the L bundle doubles that to 1,000GB. The XL bundle increases the data allowance to 1,500GB.

All Telstra bundles include phone line rental. The M plan and all plans above it include standard local and national calls. If you opt for the L plan you'll also get unlimited standard calls to Australian mobile numbers.

The XL bundle adds on unlimited calls to landlines in 35 different countries, as well as calls to mobiles in 17 of those countries.

How much do Telstra ADSL plans cost?

Telstra has always charged a premium for its services and there's no exception here for ADSL customers. Prices start at $90 per month for the M bundle and range up to $140 per month for the XL bundle.

Telstra offers ADSL plans on a month-to-month basis or over a 24-month contract. If you do opt for a month-to-month plan, be prepared to pay upfront to get started, as the minimum costs include the minimum monthly charge, an $89 activation fee, a $120 casual plan fee and $216 for a Telstra Air compatible modem.

For a 24-month contract, users will only have to pay the $89 activation fee in addition to their monthly charge.
