Australia's Best NBN 50 Plan Has Been Crowned

Sick of searching for NBN plans? Wish someone would just tell you which plan to pick? Every week, we review over 1,400 plan documents across the telco space in order to find the plans with the best value. Here’s our current winner. When it comes to "everyday" NBN plans, our ruler for the month is Exetel's unlimited data NBN 50 plan. Here's why.

Exetel's nbn50 plan will set you back $59.99 per month on a 12-month contract with a $20 setup fee. You get unlimited data, a new modem, and (hopefully) good evening speeds. You should expect around 43Mbps during busy periods – which isn’t bad at all for an NBN 50 plan.

This is a great option because it's one of the cheapest NBN 50 plans around – plain and simple. You’ll pay a minimum of $5 more per month for pretty much any other provider, even when factoring in the plethora of promotional pricing around.

Here's a look at how the Exetel plan compares:

If you don't need unlimited data and would prefer a contract-free plan, Exetel will do 500GB for the same $59.99 per month. This does however require you to bring your own modem.

    this is kind of pathetic. at my place I have a gigabit connection. In geek-free english thats 990 - 1,000 mbps. It comes with a landline and has an unlimited data allowance. It costs me NZ$116 per month. Wake up Australia, you've been had

      You should casually mention this the next time an Aussie makes fun of your accent. Watch their smirks crumple. (But maybe don't say "$116 per month.")

    @patdude yep pathetic - we do get royally shafted in pricing compared to everywhere for all telecommunications however setting up a internet setup in country the size of NZ Vs a country the size of Australia to service all areas is chalk and cheese in complexity hence you cannot expect pricing to be similar- not to say that justifies the highway robbery pricing we receive here.

    I've mentioned it to a few already... fun times

    I'm with Aussie BB, paying $79 for the same plan. How's the customer service with Exetel?

    Can confirm, been on this plan for 2 weeks now, haven't seen it faster then 43 or slower than 41. Really happy

    YAWN! When will we get access to 500Mpbs speed or even 1Gbps for an affordable price. People with fibre to the home should have access to cheaper and faster plans!
