Origin Internet Plans and Prices

As a household name when it comes to energy plans, Origin has expanded to include a range of home internet plans in more recent years. Origin joins the growing list of companies branching out to offer both internet and energy plans, and like some of its competitors, even offers discounts for bundling.

So, what do Origin’s internet plans look like? Below you’ll find a review and comparison of Origin’s internet plans to give you an idea of what you can expect from this big-name provider.

Origin Internet Plans

Origin offers a fairly simple approach to its internet plans, with NBN and fibre connections available. If you’re an NBN customer, Origin offers five speed tiers depending on your connection type — NBN 25, NBN 50, NBN 100, NBN 250 and NBN 1000. All plans include unlimited data, and are offered month-to-month with no lock-in contract.

Origin NBN Coverage

Origin NBN map

Like other NBN providers, availability of Origin NBN in your area is dependent on the nationwide NBN. While the network rollout was officially completed in 2021, there are still areas waiting to be connected.

For Origin’s NBN coverage, you can enter your address on the company’s website to check what internet connection you have available to your home, or check on the NBN Co website for availability or expected time frame for your home to be connected.

Origin Features & Bonuses

Perhaps the biggest advantage to choosing Origin for your internet plan is the potential savings if you also happen to have an Origin Energy plan. If you have an electricity, natural gas or hot-water account with Origin, you’ll receive a $10 monthly discount on your NBN or fibre broadband plan. This discount will appear as credit against the monthly fee.

In addition to the savings from bundling your energy and internet plans, Origin also offers the following:

  • Modems: Origin does offer an optional modem if you don’t plan to BYO hardware, however this will cost $120 upfront on a month-to-month plan with a $20 delivery fee.
  • Home phone: You can add a premium VoIP home phone plan with unlimited local, standard national and Australian mobile calls to any Origin NBN plan for an additional $10 per month. Customers can also opt for a standard VoIP plan on a pay-as-you-go basis.

While Origin doesn’t offer any entertainment bundles, you will get straightforward choices with its unlimited data options, all at a decent price point. No contract plans also offer flexibility, and the option to cancel or switch plans at any time without penalty.

Origin Everyday 25 Plan

Using the NBN Standard Speed (NBN 25), Origin’s Everyday 25 plan is available month-to-month with unlimited data. This plan is priced at $74 per month standalone, or $64 when bundled with natural gas, hot water or electricity, and features a typical evening speed of 25Mbps in peak hours between 7pm and 11pm.

Origin Experience 50 Plan

Origin’s NBN 50 plan is priced at $84 per month for unlimited data, or $74 if you’re an Origin energy customer. This plan will most likely appeal to families or households where two or more people stream video in HD, play online games and download files on multiple devices, and offers a typical evening speed of 50Mbps.

Origin Enthusiast 100 Plan

Want the premium NBN 100 speed tier? Origin has you covered for $104 per month (or $94 on an energy bundle), with a typical evening speed of 99Mbps and no lock-in contract.

Origin Super Fast & Ultra Fast Plans

If you’re on an eligible Fibre to the Premises or Hybrid Fibre Coaxial NBN connection, you may be able to sign up for extra-fast NBN 250 or NBN 1000 plans. Both options include unlimited data, and come with a $10 monthly discount if you add on an electricity, hot water or natural gas plan.

Origin’s Super Fast NBN 250 plan is priced from $134 per month ($124 for Origin energy customers) and has a typical peak hour speed of 248Mbps. The Ultra Fast NBN 1000 plan begins at $154 per month ($144 for Origin energy customers), and offers evening speeds of 600Mbps.

Origin Fibre Internet Plans

As an alternative to NBN, Origin offers a selection of plans on the OptiComm Fibre network. Access to these plans is subject to availability of this network in your area, so you’ll need to check your address to find if you’ll have access. Similar to NBN, these plans are available on speed tiers 25, 50, 100, 250 and 1000, however you might experience different speeds, with typical evening speeds of 25Mbps, 50Mbps, 99Mbps, 248Mbps and 600Mbps. All plans include unlimited data and optional premium home phone service for an additional $10 per month.

How does Origin compare to other internet providers?

While Origin’s plans might not be the cheapest around, there is definite convenience (and some savings) if you also have an energy plan with Origin. There are other internet providers which also offer energy plans and discounts for bundling. Some similar providers include:

If you wish to compare internet providers with energy plans, you’ll need to look at AGL, Dodo, Sumo and Kogan. While providers like Telstra, iiNet, Internode and Foxtel, offer other bundling options, mostly with entertainment extras.

Does Origin have the right internet plan for me?

Origin offers a comprehensive selection of internet plans, across NBN and fibre networks. The biggest draw for customers will most likely be in the convenience of bundling with an energy plan, considering Origin is one of the biggest names in the energy space. While its plans aren’t the cheapest around, they’re also not the most expensive, sitting somewhere in the middle.

With unlimited data as standard and the option to add on a reasonably-priced modem, as well as the option to add on home phone call packs, Origin offers decent flexibility and no lock-in contracts. If you’re an NBN customer, you’ll have up to five tiers to choose from. Also, there aren’t many internet providers offering NBN 25 speed plans, so it’s good news if you’re looking for more plans to compare on more affordable speed tiers. All in all, Origin offers reasonable value for money, and a decent saving if you’re also an energy customer. As always, it’s best to compare internet plans before signing up, to give you a good idea on the best internet plan for your needs and price range.
