Choosing the right NBN plan for you

As more and more devices make their way into Australian households, so our hunger for faster, better and more data grows.

As more and more devices make their way into Australian households, so our hunger for faster, better and more data grows. With the National Broadband Network (NBN)  it seems that choosing an unlimited data plan may be the best option as there is only $10 difference between a plan with a data limit and one with unlimited data.

Here are all the unlimited NBN plans. Let’s see which is the fastest, the cheapest and offers the best value.


Click broadband offer the cheapest plan for the fastest unlimited NBN fixed line at $76.88/month for the first 6 months. After this it jumps to $88.88/month which still beats the other deals. It also has no set-up fees or contracts and has a promotion that offers a $50 bonus credit if you refer a friend.


Looking at the list above, the cheapest option for unlimited NBN data, Mate, looks after its customers with no contracts, no upfront and no set-up fees. However, even though you get an NBN fixed line, it only delivers a basic evening speed of 12Mbps.

Southern Phone offers the best value for money with a standard plus plan at $58/month for the first six months and then $70/month from then on. For an extra $10/month the unlimited evening data speed can be more than doubled from 12Mbps to 30Mbps. Southern Phone also has no contracts, no upfront and no setup fees.
