With the NBN rollout now well progressed, with over 70% of the nation's households and businesses able to choose a retail service provider (RSP) and connect to the NBN, many of us are shopping around for the best deals. RSPs are constantly trying to expand their footprint and add customers so there are lots of deals around. Here are some of the best options I've been able to track down.
It's worth noting that the deals available in your area will vary. Not every RSP offers services in every suburb.
Tangerine's offer is similar to Vodafones's with six months of 100Mbps access at $69.95 each month. But after that, the price rises by just $10. Peak speeds of 83Mbps can be expected and there's a once-off fee of $89.90 for a standard NBN modem.
Exetel has a similar offer with the same speeds for $69.95 per month but it's limited to 100GB of data. An extra $10 each month bumps that up to 500GB with a further $10, bringing the monthly cost to $89.99 a month, giving unlimited traffic.
At $79.95 a month with no lock-in, the MyRepublic offer isn't a bad deal as the price is locked in for a year. That's $10 off the regular price. But you'll need your own modem or pay $79 for their optional Hub+ device.
From now until 30 June 2019, Vodafone is offering customers their 100Mbps service, dubbed Vodafone Premium nbn™ for $69 a month for the first six months. After that period, the plan reverts to the regular price of $89 per month. The company says you can expect typical busy speeds of 83Mbps.
Kogan is offering nine months of NBN access at $75.90 per month with the price increasing by $10 after they introductory period. For that price, the modem is included and, like most other providers, they are saying peak performance of 83Mbps is expected.
