TPG has jumped on new NBN pricing and released its typical evening speeds
TPG has dropped its 50/20 NBN plan pricing in line with NBN Co's new pricing strategy.
When NBN Co announced its new NBN pricing strategy this morning, which is designed to get more consumers to switch to 50/20Mbps plans, it did so by dropping the access price that providers pay for those plans, with the expectation that internet providers would switch plan pricing around for consumers.
TPG is the first cab off the rank, announcing that its new NBN50 plans will be priced at $69.99 per month with unlimited data usage. If you had signed up yesterday, that same pricing would have only scored you a 25/5Mbps connection.
TPG NBN50 Unlimited
No set-up fees
BYO modem or $0 on 6 month contract. T&Cs apply.
Min. Total Cost of $74.99
As with any NBN plan, your actual access to NBN speeds will vary by technology type and other environmental and network factors.
TPG has also joined Telstra and Optus in advertising its typical evening speeds for plans as part of its sign-up strategy, a move not forced but strongly advocated for by the ACCC. Here's how TPG reckons its typical evening speeds stack up at each speed tier, bearing in mind that your actual experience may differ:
|Speed Tier||Typical evening speeds|
TPG states that its typical evening speed ratings are for between 7-11pm, but that some NBN customers may not be able to realise all speed tiers. In that case, it notes that it will allow customers to downgrade to a lower speed, lower cost plan without penalty.
