Aussie Broadband Black Friday deals

Aussie Broadband is no stranger to a holiday deal, and is once again offering savings on selected NBN and OptiComm plans this Black Friday sales week. Customers can save up to $120 on high-speed internet, plus receive three months of Aussie Broadband mobile free with eligible NBN plans. All of the following deals are available until December 10, 2021 here’s what’s on offer.

Save $60 on NBN 12, NBN 25 and NBN 50 plans

Aussie Broadband’s standard NBN 12, NBN 25, and NBN 50 plans have each been discounted by $10 per month for six months for new sign-ups, provided you enter the promo code BLACK10 at check out. This equals a total saving of $60, dropping the price of Basic NBN 12 from $59 to $49, Casual NBN 25 from $69 to $59, and Everyday NBN 50 from $79 to $69 per month.

After six months, your plan will return to its usual price, but you’re free to switch or cancel your service at any time. All plans include unlimited data, with the option to bring your own modem or add one to your order from $149 upfront.

Save $120 on NBN 100, NBN 250 and NBN 1000 plans

If you’re eligible for Aussie Broadband’s faster unlimited NBN plans, you’ll receive $20 off your monthly plan price for your first six months by using the code BLACK20 at checkout. This offer applies to Aussie Broadband’s $99 Family NBN 100 plan (now $79 per month), $129 Power User NBN 250 plan (now $109 per month), and $149 Power House NBN 1000 plan (now $129 per month), saving you $120 in total.

After six months, prices will revert back to the standard monthly cost, but as there’s no lock-in contracts, you’re free to switch to a cheaper plan at any time. These plans offer typical download speeds of 99Mbps or faster during busy periods, but be aware that NBN 250 and NBN 1000 speeds are only available to customers with eligible FTTP or HFC NBN connections. You can find these ultra-fast plans in the table below.

If you’re on the hunt for a new tablet this Black Friday, Telstra is bringing back its popular Click Frenzy discount on the Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 and Samsung Galaxy Tab S7+ 5G. Pick up either device on a Telstra Upfront Data plan before November 29, 2021, and you’ll save $400 off the Galaxy Tab S7+ 5G, and $300 on the Galaxy Tab S7.

These discounts apply no matter which payment option you choose for your tablet, including buying outright from Telstra or paying off your device over 12, 24, or 36 months. However, if you do want to buy on a Telstra payment plan, keep in mind that if you cancel early, you’ll forfeit the rest of your Black Friday discount, and be required to pay out the remaining tablet balance.

You can pair each Samsung tablet with the below Telstra data plans. However, if you’re looking to use the 5G-ready Samsung Galaxy Tab S7+ on Telstra’s 5G network, you’ll need to add it to Telstra’s Medium or Large plans for 5G access.
