Can I get NBN 250?
To get NBN 250, you'll need to have an NBN connection that's been classified as 'Premises Connected Class' 250 or 'Premises Connected Class' 350. The former refers to areas where the NBN has been fully rolled out, while the latter is for premises that are yet to be connected. If you're not sure whether your NBN connection is classified as one of these, you can check using the NBN rollout map on the website of your chosen provider.
You can also try to find out whether the connection technology implemented in your area is FTTP (Fibre to the Premises) or HFC (Hybrid Fibre Coaxial). This is because generally, NBN 250 plans offered by various internet service providers are only available in areas with these kinds of connection technologies. This can be attributed to the fact only these technologies are capable of supporting internet speeds this fast.
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.

Is superfast NBN worth it?
NBN 250 plans are typically more expensive than other NBN plans, so you'll need to compare pricing and speeds before deciding whether this is the right option for you. In a gist, superfast NBN is worth it if you are a heavy internet user, need a higher upload speed, or want to avoid data caps. This way, you will be able to maximise the usage of the speed that you are paying for.
How good is 250 Mbps internet?
NBN 250 plans typically offer faster speeds than other NBN plans, so they may be a good option if you need a fast connection for activities like online gaming or streaming HD video. Keep in mind that for online gamers, internet speeds matter significantly because they cannot afford to have any lag during gameplay. When it comes to streaming HD videos, a higher internet speed can mean less buffering and a better overall experience.
NBN 250 is also a good option for large households or businesses that need to connect multiple devices to the internet at once. This is because the higher speeds offered by these plans mean that more devices can be connected without impacting the performance of the connection.
