Telstra’s latest offering on cheaper NBN plans might be a good shout if you’re lamenting your terrible internet speeds and would very much like an upgrade.
Telstra’s current deal cuts $10 per month off its NBN 50 and NBN 100 plans. However, you need to be a first-time customer to take advantage of this.
If you aren’t already an existing customer, you could have a total savings of $120. That means NBN 50 plans start at $80 per month, and NBN 100 at $100 per month.
Even though it sounds like a pretty good deal coming from a major ISP like Telstra, there are a couple of caveats to be aware of.
Although the plans themselves are contract-free, cancelling within your first 24 months would mean you’d have to pay out the remaining value of your modem. This is equivalent to $9 multiplied by the amount of months left in the two-year term. So for instance, if you decided to leave after the first 12 months, you would have to pay back $108 for the modem. But in some good news, the modem includes a 4G backup in the event of an NBN outage so that’s something to consider too.
You should also note that only FTTP and HFC customers can sign-up for Telstra’s NBN 100 plan.
Customers who sign-up online also have the $99 connection fee waived and will get a free month of Foxtel Now. This promo runs until 30 June.
