Telstra fixed-line NBN plans

What you need to know about Telstra's fixed-line NBN plans

Telstra's fixed-line NBN plans deliver high-speed broadband Internet using fibre to the premises (FTTP), fibre to the node (FTTN) and fibre to the building (FTTB) technologies, with the particular technology used dependent on where you live. All plans come bundled with a Voice over IP (VoIP) phone service that lets you make and receive calls over the Internet instead of the soon-to-be-obsolete copper network. By default, this service includes unlimited local, national and Australian mobile calls, but it can be upgraded with unlimited calls to select international destinations for an additional monthly fee.

Telstra offers two standard fixed-line NBN plans on month-to-month contracts, plus a variety of 24-month bundles that come with either Telstra TV or Foxtel.

What are the different Telstra fixed-line NBN plans?

For a standard NBN service, Telstra has two main plans available on month-to-month contracts: a 200GB plan and an unlimited plan. The 200GB plan comes with a Standard speed NBN connection which Telstra claims will deliver an average speed of 20.00 Mbps during the peak evening hours of 7:00pm to 11:00pm. The Unlimited plan includes a faster Standard Plus connection, with average speeds sitting at 40.00 Mbps during peak evening hours.

A speed boost to Premium NBN speeds is available on the Unlimited plan for an extra $30 a month.

Telstra also offers a few entertainment bundles that combine the unlimited month-to-month Internet plan with either a Telstra TV or a Foxtel subscription. For the Telstra TV option, you'll need to repay the additional cost of the Telstra TV streaming box over a period of 24 months. For the Foxtel bundles, you'll have to commit to a minimum contract term of 12 months.

How much do Telstra's fixed-line NBN plans cost?

Telstra's fixed-line NBN plans start at $75 a month for the 200GB Essential plan and $90 a month for the Unlimited plan. The Telstra TV streaming bundle ups that by $9 per month, while the Foxtel bundles start at $30 extra per month.

On top of the monthly cost, you'll also need to cover a number of one-off costs when you first sign up for Telstra's fixed-line NBN service. New customers will need to pay a once-off set-up fee of $99. New Telstra customers won't have to worry about purchasing a modem as the Telstra Wi-Fi modem is included for free if you stick it out for 24 months. If you do need to purchase one separately for any reason, it will cost you $216.

To upgrade the included phone service, you can spend an extra $15 a month to get the International Ultimate pack that comes with unlimited calls to landlines in 35 select countries and unlimited calls to mobiles in 17 of those countries.

You won't have to worry about excess data charges with Telstra's fixed-line NBN plans since going over your monthly download limit will simply see your Internet speed slowed to 256kbps for the rest of your current billing cycle.
