What is NBN 250?

A lot of Australian households are starting to look into faster and better internet services for their online browsing needs. The once sparse NBN 250 market currently enjoys a stable growth and is celebrated as Australia's second-fastest broadband.

As the National Broadband Network continues to roll out, NBN 250 and NBN 1000 have been receiving more attention from the masses. With most households enjoying NBN 50 and NBN 100 speeds, having a faster option is worth a second look.

Depending on your location, your home could be eligible to access the NBN's fastest internet tiers. Also known as Home Superfast, NBN 250 is among the fastest speed tiers you can avail from the NBN. Although the brand currently carries the NBN 1000 Ultra Fast tier, this tier plan is available to limited households only, thus lesser accessibility compared to NBN 250.

NBN 250 is advertised as faster than the typical download speeds currently available from TPG and Optus, two of the biggest internet service retailers in the country. NBN 250 is also considered as a premium upgrade from NBN 100, but with a price tag that might give you second thoughts.

How fast is NBN 250?

NBN 250 is the second fastest broadband available in Australia. In theory, it can allow subscribers to download a full length movie and a 1080p TV show in less than a minute. A 30GB 4K movie download will take around 16 minutes while a 90GB video game can be downloaded within 49 minutes with the service.

However, typical evening speeds still apply to the speed tier and may record average speeds for customers during the peak hours of 7pm to 11pm. Typical evening speeds for NBN 250 is calculated to be around 215Mbps via the internet service providers Superloop and Aussie Broadband.

Availability

NBN 250 is available through a number of internet retailers in Australia. However, the service will most likely be offered to limited residential customers. If you are looking to experience NBN 250 in your home, you can look into the plans and inclusions available through Aussie Broadband, Vodafone, Telstra, Kogan, Superloop, Launtel and MyRepublic.

Households who would want to upgrade to an NBN 250 plan will also have to invest in a modem compatible device that is often available as an option from these internet service retailers.

FAQs

Do I need a Superfast NBN 250 plan?

NBN 250 is not for everyone. Although its features are quite appealing, in terms of streaming, online gaming, working from home and big file downloads, there are more affordable plans that can offer a decent speed, at a fraction of the price.

Upload speeds are also quite impressive with NBN 250. If you are a heavy user of Twitch, Skype or YouTube, or any other content sharing platforms that require frequent uploading of content, you may want to consider NBN 250 for better upload speeds.

If you live in a bigger household that has multiple heavy users, it is a worthwhile investment to consider. Your address should be FTTP or HFC-ready to be considered upgrading to NBN 250. If you do not fall to these demanding needs, your current NBN 100 or NBN 50 plan is already sufficient.

How do I get an NBN 250 connection?

Verify first the NBN connection type available in your area. Only homes with an FTTP connection or those with HFC cable can access the Superfast NBN 250 broadband connection. Contact our broadband experts at 1300 106 571 for immediate assistance.
