Extel’s original NBN plans were amongst the best offerings on the market. Exetel is now offering unmetered data in off-peak hours for its NBN customers under revamped plans, but it has also raised prices considerably.
If you’re a heavy data user who doesn’t mind a bit of midnight hour scheduling there could be some distinct value in Exetel’s changed NBN offerings, as all plans now have unmetered usage between 1am and 9am.
The downside to this move is that plan prices have jumped up across the board. The cheapest 12/1 Exetel NBN plan is now $49.50/month (up from $35) with 50GB of data allowance. At the 25/5Mbps tier the cheapest plan jumps from $40/month to $54.50. At 50/20Mbps the price jumps from $50/month to $69.50/month and at 100/40Mbps the entry level plan jumps from $45/month to $79.50/month. For the truly data desperate, the top tier 100/40Mbps plan is up from $70/month to $139/month, but data allowance has also moved up from 300GB to 500GB.
