If you’re a customer with Australia’s largest bank, you score 30% off your NBN bill for a year if you’re willing to change providers. All you need to do is use your CommBank card for billing when you sign up to a plan with More, a telco partially owned by CommBank itself.

Here are More’s NBN plans:

Excluding the 30% discount, More’s NBN plans aren’t the most competitive. They tend to slant toward the premium end of the pricing spectrum for their respective speed tiers. But 30% off makes them a whole lot more compelling.

When you factor in the saving, here’s what you’ll pay for More’s plans as a CommBank customer:

  • NBN 25 was $66 per month – $46.20 per month with discount
  • NBN 50 was $77 per month – $53.90 per month with discount
  • NBN 100/20 was $99 per month – $69.30 per month with discount
  • NBN 100/40 was $109 per month – $76.30 per month with discount
  • NBN 250 was $119 per month – $83.30 per month with discount

For comparison, here are some of the cheapest NBN 25 plans on the market:

Here are some of the cheapest NBN 50 plans:

Here are some of the cheapest NBN 100 plans:

And here are some of the cheapest NBN 250 plans:

While More’s discount doesn’t make it that much cheaper than alternatives on most speed tiers, the discount lasts for a whole year. Most other providers only offer discounts for your first six months, so you’re saving more in the long term with More. More’s NBN plans are all contract-free, so there’s nothing stopping you from leaving after the discount runs out.

More is a great pick when it comes to NBN 250 plans, however. The cheapest discount NBN 250 plan you’ll find is $89 per month from MyRepublic for your first six months and $99 per month thereafter. That’s a total first year cost of $1,128 with MyRepublic, compared to a first year cost of $999.60 with More’s discounted plan. NBN 250 plans are available to anyone at an FTTP or HFC NBN premise.

To get More’s discounted rate, select CommBank Customer Pricing when you sign-up and pay using your CommBank card.

If you haven’t heard of More before, we’re not surprised. While More has been around for a couple of years, it’s been a business-focused provider until recently. More is however the sister brand to Tangerine Telecom, which is popular for its budget-friendly plans. CommBank acquired a 25% stake in both More and Tangerine in July last year, hence the discount for its customers.
