We all know Telstra - it is Australia’s largest telecommunications and media company which builds and operates telecommunications networks and markets voice, mobile, internet access, pay television and other entertainment products and services. One of the sectors encompassed in Telstra is of course, Telstra NBN. With multiple plan tiers available, all of which can be purchased as broadband-only connections or in a bundle with home phone and Foxtel packages, Telstra has an internet solution for people from all walks of life. In this article, we will have a look at the various Telstra NBN pricing for their various plans, in order to help you understand which plan may suit your needs the best.
For starters, we know that Telstra provides its users with a wide variety of NBN bundles to pick from, all based on varying data allowance, preferences and individual needs. Telstra’s 3 NBN bundled plans in their most basic forms all come with maximum download speeds of 25Mbps, with speed boosts available to speed things up even more. Below are the upgrades which you can purchase to add onto your basic bundle.
● An additional $20 per month added to your plan will bring your connection up to their ‘Very Fast’ 50Mbps download speed.
● An additional $30 per month will get you connected to their Superfast 100Mbps internet which is the maximum speeds possible at this current moment.
Telstra’s bundles start off at $90 per month which will give you 500GB of data on their Medium bundle. An increase in price to $120 will get you 1000GB of data. Finally, forking out $140 a month will get you a whopping 1500GB of data, which in other words, is pretty much unlimited data to most folks. As per the various download speed tiers mentioned above, 50Mbps speeds will cost you a minimum of $110 per month instead, and so on.
If all this is a little too much for your brain to handle, the fantastic news is that you can simply pick from two of their user friendly NBN-only options instead – the Medium or Large plan. These plans are priced at $80 a month for 500GB of data and $95 for 1000GB respectively. Both of these plans come with a 2 year lock in contract, but if doesn’t suit you, you may wish to opt for a month to month contract, though this will cause costs to differ slightly from what is mentioned above. Whatever the case, Telstra can work around your needs.
So, if you’re contemplating signing up to a Telstra NBN plan, it would be advisable to make a decision on exactly what your data needs are, in order to pick the plan that is best suited to you. You should also keep in mind that are indeed some start-up costs associated with Telstra NBN, inclusive of a $240 fee that may apply should you need their technicians to come into your home for an installation. Additionally, if you live in a brand new building or development that is not already connected to the NBN, a $300 NBN Co New Development Charge will apply - though this will be the same case for any other ISP in a new building.
