Step 2 icon

This is fast enough for most activities, such as browsing the web, checking email and social media, streaming music and TV shows, and online gaming. If you need a higher speed for activities such as video conferencing or downloading large files, you may want to consider an NBN plan with speeds of up to 100Mbps.

How to increase internet speed?

Many things can affect your internet speed, such as the type of connection you have, your modem and router, how many devices are connected to the internet, and even the time of day. If you're not getting the speeds you were promised by your provider, there are a few things you can do:

  • Check your equipment: Make sure you have a good quality modem and router, and that they're properly set up.
  • Connect directly to the modem: If you're connecting wirelessly, try connecting your device directly to the modem with an Ethernet cable. This will give you a faster and more reliable connection.
  • Check for interference: Things like walls, microwaves, and even certain types of lighting can interfere with your wireless signal. If you're having trouble connecting, try moving your modem or router to a different location.
