Teleron NBN Plans Review
Teleron is a relative newcomer to the telecommunications landscape, launched in late 2016. It’s a company focused on delivering NBN services to local communities, and focuses solely on NBN plans across all four speed tiers. A focus on smooth transition to the new network technology means that Teleron is committed to providing you with a plan that matches your needs. But how does it really stack up? We’ve reviewed Teleron’s broadband plans and compared them against the competition so you can pick the best possible deal for your needs.
Teleron NBN Plans
|Plan||Data Included||Price Per Month From|
*Faster speed tiers from an extra $9 per month
While monthly plan costs remain the same whether you choose a monthly, 12 month or 24 month contract, you will be charged an additional set-up fee by opting for the monthly plan. You’re also free to BYO modem, though you can upgrade your modem for a nominal fee depending on your contract length. You’ll also be charged a $15 delivery fee for the modem, but regular installation is free.
Teleron also has a range of call plans to add on to your NBN plan if you so choose. You’ll be charged a set-up cost of $5 for any and all call plans (plus an additional cost for transferring your number), which are as follows:
- Unlimited local calls included
- Unlimited standard and national calls – $10 a month
While the names of Teleron’s NBN plans are quite basic, you’ll find that its plans are pretty cheap, and there’s probably one out there to suit you. They are generally amongst the cheapest NBN plans around, and if you find the perfect trade-off between data allowance and speed, you’ll likely bag a bargain.
Teleron Regular Plan – 200GB
The first plan off the bat is the the Regular plan, and should suit a wide variety of light-medium users. With 200GB, you are free to play around a fair bit, and is suited to online gaming, some video and music streaming as well as all the usual social media use and email. As mentioned, all four speed tiers are available, with the first speed jump costing $9 per month extra. Then it’s about $10 for all subsequent speed jumps, making the fastest plan cost $74.50 a month.
Teleron Heavy Plan – 500GB
To more than double-down on your data allowance you’ll only be paying an extra $5-odd a month, and it’s evident that Teleron is trying to make you choose the dearer plan. And for good reason – 500GB for less than $50 a month sounds pretty enticing. 500GB data is ideally meant for small families who might chew through a good amount of data through online gaming, streaming and various other moderately intense applications. This plan is also available on all four speed tiers, with Tier 4 costing $79.50 a month.
Teleron Ultimate Plan – Unlimited Data
For the ultimate in NBN plans, you can’t really go past a plan with unlimited data with your choice of speed tier. Teleron’s unlimited plan starts at $60 a month, which is $10.50 more per month than the Heavy plan with half the amount of data. As usual, expect $10 jumps for each speed tier, with the ‘Platinum’ speed (i.e. Tier 4) to cost $90 a month. This represents the pinnacle of what the NBN has to offer and is suitable for heavy internet users as unlimited data allows all the streaming, gaming and downloads you could hope for.
How does Teleron compare to other providers?
Teleron offers some of the most competitively-priced NBN plans available, and its transparent plan structures and fees makes sure it remains among the top providers you may not have heard of. That said, be aware that going for a no contract option will likely result in high setup costs.
Teleron Regular Plan Compared
In this space, it’s pretty tough to beat Teleron compared to other providers here. Teleron remains at the forefront of the cheapest providers to offer 200GB but some other smallish providers give it a run for its money. Exetel offers 500GB for around $50, MyNetFone offers a competitive plan, as does Southern Phone. Teleron is cheap, but it’s not the only piggy in this market. Also note that speed tier jumps of $10 are about industry standard, so Teleron is not alone here either.
Teleron Heavy Plan Compared
If you desire some heavier streaming potential, then 500GB seems to be about the meal ticket, and Teleron again ticks a lot of boxes with this plan starting at $49.50. Other leading companies as far as price go include SpinTel, Exetel and Southern Phone. However, at this stage you may find some other providers offer unlimited data, which can provide peace of mind for heavy internet users.
Teleron Ultimate Plan Compared
For the ultimate in data inclusions – which is unlimited data – Teleron is priced pretty competitively. While the two providers mentioned above (SpinTel and Exetel) offer something that’s tough to beat, Teleron does let slip a bit hovering at the $60 mark. The unlimited NBN segment is a hotly-contested market and Teleron somewhat struggles to compete. We aren’t talking big bucks, but a few dollars here and there could ultimately break a plan. Here, Teleron competes with the likes of Mate Communicate with no setup fees, as well as Tangerine, which also comes with no fees. MyRepublic also stands out with its Tier 4 plan priced the same as these lower-tier plans.
Should I tell my friends about Teleron?
Teleron has exploded onto the scene with some of the cheapest NBN plans in Australia. If you’re a household in the market for a new internet connection, Teleron is definitely worthy of consideration. However, there are a number of other small providers that give Teleron a run for its money, and Teleron sometimes falls a bit behind the 8-Ball. That’s not to say Teleron is a loser by any mark, but it does face stiff competition. Nevertheless, Teleron is a new provider on the block that is well worth a look into the next time you’re shopping around for a new NBN plan. With various data and speed combinations available, there is likely a bargain to be found.
