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.

While a lot has changed since that time, Telstra continues to offer a selection of ADSL bundles to customers reliant on 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 home phone line rental with unlimited local, national and Australian mobile calls every month.

What are the different Telstra ADSL bundles?

Telstra splits up its ADSL bundles based on monthly data allowance. The Essential bundle gets you 100GB of monthly data and the Unlimited bundle gives you the freedom to download as much as you want . If you're after more than just an Internet service, the Unlimited + Streaming package gets you unlimited data plus a Telstra TV streaming box and a 24-month subscription to Foxtel Now.

All Telstra bundles include phone line rental along with unlimited local and national calls plus unlimited calls to Australian mobiles. You can upgrade this even further with an International call pack, which gets you 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 tends to be a little pricier than the competition, and that remains true for its ADSL plans. Prices start at $69 per month for the Essential bundle and go up to $99 per month for the Unlimited + Streaming 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 plus a $240 casual plan fee. For a 24-month contract, users will only have to pay a $99 activation fee in addition to their monthly charge.
