Review of Mint Telecom broadband plans

One of the best things about the NBN is that the best plans aren’t limited to a few telcos that control entire networks, and so heaps of smaller internet service providers have started to take on the likes of Telstra, Optus and Vodafone. One of those telcos is Mint Telecom, an ISP that operates out of Hobart, billing itself as a telco like no other.

Mint Telecom offers NBN plans across five speed tiers, banking on customisation with options to change your internet plan in any way you like. You can learn everything you need to know about the light green ISP below.

Mint Telecom Internet Plans

All of Mint Telecom’s plans come with unlimited data, with the exception of Fast+ and Superfast plans, which are maxed at 2TB. All plans come with a six month contract term with no activation fees.

  • Plans start at $69.95/mth for Mint’s NBN 25 plan, although the website mentions an NBN12 plan for $54.95
  • NBN 50 is available for $79.95/mth
  • NBN 100 is available for $89.95/mth
  • 100/40 is available for $84.95 with 100GB data
  • NBN 250 is available for $129.95/mth with 2TB data

Please note that the only plans that don’t have unlimited data are NBN 100/40 and NBN 250, with NBN 100/40 offering both 100GB and 2TB, and NBN 250 offering 2TB. Additionally, you can get a landline service for $5/mth extra, with three call packs available.

You can also pick up a NetComm NF20W modem for $99 (plus a $19.95 P&H fee). A NetComm NF18ACV modem is also available at the checkout for $149 (plus P&H fee), or the NetComm NL1901ACV modem for $249 (plus P&H fee). Alternatively, you could simply bring your own. Cancelling the contract term early will cost you $99 per service.

Mint Telecom Broadband Features & Bonuses

Mint Telecom’s approach to the NBN is unlike a lot of providers. Mint is entirely Australian owned, and offers wide customisation on its website as far as plans go. This can get quite complex, as some features aren’t available on some plans (for example – 100GB is available on NBN 100/40 plans, but no other plans).

Mint Telecom also offers a Loyalty Scheme through My241 rewards, where you can get cheaper access to things like cruises, hotels, golf and wine, provided you stay signed up with Mint.
Aside from this, here’s some of the highlights that Mint Telecom offers:

  • Modems: Mint Telecom offers three modems: one for $99, one for $149 and one for $249. You can also bring your own.
  • Setup fees: Min Telecom has no setup fees!
  • Superfast NBN: Mint Telecom offers NBN 250, in case you’re after a plan with a little extra kick.

Mint Telecom’s plans are quite confusing, and you can only sign up for them over the phone. You’ll need to sign up on a six month plan, with this provider being great for anyone that wants access to a wide ranging rewards program.

Mint Standard NBN

Mint Standard NBN plans start at $64.90/mth, including a minimum evening speed of 15Mbps (typical evening speeds are not listed). You can find this plan below.

Mint Superfast NBN

Mint is also one of the few providers that offers NBN 250 speeds, which you can find in the table below.
