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, nor are they the cheapest. But they are the plans most WhistleOut customers 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.

Here are the top five for the month of September. We’ve included the chief inclusions below along with the typical evening speeds you can expect to receive.

#1 Tangerine’s $59.90 plan


Tangerine’s XL Speed Boost plan costs $59.90 for the first six months – the price then jumps to $69.90 per month. (There’s no lock-in contract though.) The plan also comes with a 14 day risk-free trial. There’s no setup fee but adding a pre-configured modem will cost you between $89 and $119 (depending on the model you choose.) Tangerine’s XL Speed Boost plan has a typical evening speed of 42Mbps
