NBN Broadband Speed and Data

NBN Internet Data options:

Downloads and Uploads both count towards your Monthly Data Allowance. Once this Monthly Data Allowance is reached your speed will be slowed to 256Kbps. You have the option to remain at the slow speed until the end of the billing period when your quota is reset, or top-up your data if you think you will run out, or upgrade to the next plan.

And here’s our view on choosing the amount of data to match:

50GB
Not bad and extremely generous for this price! It will be ok for the slower speed options, but with your improved NBN speeds, look at the next option for just a fraction of the price more.

200GB
Supersize me. More than enough for the average household. You still have the option of bumping it up further if you think you will start getting up there!

1,000GB (or 1TB)
This is huge, it’s basically the equivalent of Unlimited usage! If you’re on the super fast NBN speeds then we recommend this option because you’ll be able to upload and download so much more. But there is a warning if you need more data than this option :-) There’s a beautiful world out there, so if you’re hitting this kind of usage, we recommend you take up a new outdoor sport! Having said that, we can still offer more!

NBN Internet Speeds Available:

12/1 Mbps
Hmmm…what’s the point? We really think you should look at faster speeds and experience the benefit of having the NBN. After all, not everyone can get it just yet, so go for it! Make it count.
This will be similar to ADSL speeds and compared to some of the lucky ADSL users, it will actually be slower!! If all you do is send the odd email and browse the internet then try it out. But you should really look at our faster plans…

25/5 Mbps
This is a good solid intro to the NBN, faster than ADSL. It’s like the ADSL2 we all should have been getting, but it never was quite this fast. Don’t stop here, give the faster speeds a look at, it’s the NBN and it’s here!
You can send photos, watch videos, and download music without too much fuss using this speed.

25/10 Mbps
OK…with an upload speed of 10Mbps you are really benefiting from the NBN! If you’re not sure how you’ll benefit, then don’t worry about this option. For those of you who were waiting for this, at this price! Go on, you know who you are.
Sending emails with large attachments or high resolution photos, or downloading/uploading large files such as video will be lightning fast compared to ADSL. Life will be so much easier now!

50/20 Mbps
This is where the NBN starts showing its true benefits.
If streaming HD movies and games is your thing and you don’t want any lag then this is the speed for you.
Also perfect for web designers, photographers or anyone downloading/uploading large files who hate to wait! Almost the perfect option.

100/40 Mbps
Fastest NBN speed available, this is what it’s about. Once you use this type of speed you’ll be disappointed with anything else. It’s a bit like living in London wishing you were back in Aus enjoying the sunshine.
Very simply put, if you can afford it, go for it, you won’t be disappointed. Well suited for time sensitive, interactive applications such as gaming. Again, perfect for photographers and video editors who frequently upload and download large files. Perfect for all internet usage.
