About Family Broadband plans

Families with school-age children often need an internet connection for study, work and play. Good value, a reasonable amount of data, and cheap phone calls are usually high on the agenda. These criteria point toward a bundle deal with possible streaming TV extras.

Internet Service Providers (ISPs) offer good discounts to customers who bundle a home phone and internet service together, and families also benefit from the convenience of a single bill for their telecommunications. 

If you plan to watch YouTube, download movies, music, play online games and use streaming TV services such as Netflix regularly you should be looking for a medium to large sized data plan of around 500GB+, with an ADSL2+, Cable or NBN connection. The connection type you can get will depend on what is available at your property, our team of broadband experts can help with this. 

Families sharing one internet connection between several people should consider using a Wi-Fi router, which creates a secure wireless network in the home. When shopping around for a provider, ask if a discounted or free Wi-Fi modem is available on the plan. If not, you can either buy a pre-configured modem from your provider, or configure your own device.
