Choosing an NBN plan is a bit like playing Russian roulette - while the odds are generally stacked in your favour, there's a pretty big chance something horrible will happen. It therefore pays to look at what other customers are buying to get an idea of what's popular. With that in mind, here are the top five NBN plans according to around a million WhistleOut users.

The five plans below aren't the fastest on the market (in fact, they're all NBN 50) and they aren't necessarily the cheapest either. What they are the plans most WhistleOut readers are interested in based on monthly clicks. When you consider there are hundreds of plans from over 30 providers to choose from, this is no small feat.

The popularity of these plans can be viewed as a testament to their reliability, customer service and price. We've included the chief inclusions below along with the typical evening speeds you can expect to receive.

Belong's $65 plan

Belong's NBN Standard Plus plan costs $65 per month on a 12 month contract. Like all the plans here, it boasts unlimited data. It also comes with a free Wi-Fi modem and no activation fee. Belong's NBN Standard Plus plan has a typical evening speed of 40Mbps.
