Uniti Internet Plans

If you’re after an internet plan, it pays to do your research, and not simply settle on the biggest name provider that you can find. That’s where a provider like Uniti comes into play, offering a massive variety of plans on the NBN, LBN, and through wireless broadband, to name just a few of Uniti’s internet solutions.

Uniti has been operating since 2013, offering plans across a wide range of internet types. Despite keeping the types of internet it services broad, Uniti keeps things simple on a basic handful of plans for each broadband type (especially for its selection of NBN plans). Let’s jump into it, and see how Uniti compares to other internet providers in Australia.

Uniti NBN Plans

Uniti’s four NBN plans are easy to understand, with each plan offering a different speed tier and a different price. All four plans include unlimited data and the option to sign up without a contract (costing you a $99 setup fee). If this seems a bit steep, you can sign up for 12 months and only pay a $49 setup fee, or sign up for 24 months, and do away with the setup fee entirely.

The four NBN plans available from unity are The 25 (NBN 25), The 50 (NBN 50), The 100 (NBN 100) and The 250 (NBN 250), with prices ascending as speeds increase. You can also pick up a modem at the checkout, the purchase of which will lower your setup cost by $49. You get three modem options: the Netcomm NF18MESH Router, the Netcomm NF18MESH Router with a range extender included, or the Netcomm NF18MESH Router with two range extenders included. Consider a range extender if your house has a lot of dead spots, or if it’s quite a large property. Of course, there’s also the option to simply bring your own modem.

Uniti’s prices start at $69 per month for The 25 plan, and go up to $119.95 for The 250 plan. You can find Uniti’s plans in the table below. Keep in mind that not every property will be able to get the NBN 250 plan, as this speed is only available to HFC and FTTP-connected households.

Uniti coverage

Uniti offers plans on the NBN, Opticomm, LBN, OPENetwork, and RedTrain networks, and is available across Australia wherever plans can reach. Uniti also operates Fixed Wireless plans which are available where applicable. If you’d like to get a connection to one of its networks at your home, you’d need to get in touch with Uniti directly.

Uniti features and bonuses

Despite offering a wide range of services, Uniti tries to keep things as simple as possible by offering easy to understand plans and features. Here’s some of the highlights:

  • Special offers: Uniti often offers promos on NBN, OptiComm, OPENetworks, LBNCo and RedTrain plans.
  • Modem: Uniti offers the Netcomm NF18MESH Router for $149.95 outright. Customers can also purchase WiFi range extenders through Uniti.
  • Setup fees: Uniti includes setup fees on its plans – $99 for a no contract plan, $49 for a 12 month plan, and $0 for a 24 month plan. If you get a modem, you get $49 off your setup fee.

Uniti’s pricing across all of its different networks stays similar, although there are subtle differences in prices from plan to plan. We’ll be going through all of the plans Uniti provides below.

Uniti Standard NBN

Uniti’s slowest speed on the NBN is NBN 25, which starts at $69.95 per month for a 24.2Mbps typical evening speed. You can find the plan below.

Uniti Standard Plus NBN

The middle of the range NBN plan offered by Uniti is NBN 50, which costs $79.95 for a 41.7Mbps typical evening speed.

Uniti Premium NBN

Uniti’s top speed NBN plan is NBN 100, priced at $89.95 with a 78.7Mbps typical evening speed. NBN 250 is also available to FTTP and HFC customers, which costs $119.95 per month, with a typical evening speed average yet to be recorded.

Uniti OptiComm Plans

Uniti offers OptiComm plans to anybody that can access the OptiComm network. Prices start at $69.95 per month for the 25Mbps max speed plan, and go up to $149.95 for the 1000Mbps max speed plan. Earlier mentioned setup fees, modem costs and contract periods apply to Opticomm plans. Here are the plans:

  • The 25: 25/5Mbps — $69.95
  • The 50: 50/20Mbps — $79.95
  • The 100: 100/20Mbps — $89.95
  • The 250: 250/25Mbps — $119.95
  • The 1000: 1000/50Mbps — $149.95

Uniti LBNco Plans

If you’re able to connect to the LBNco network, you can get a plan through Uniti. Prices start at $69.95 for the 25Mbps maximum speed plan, and go all the way up to $149.95 for the 1000Mbps max speed plan, exactly the same with Opticomm plans. The same setup fees, modem costs and contract periods apply to LBNco plans, which are below:

  • The 25: 25/5Mbps — $69.95
  • The 50: 50/20Mbps — $79.95
  • The 100: 100/20Mbps — $89.95
  • The 250: 250/25Mbps — $119.95
  • The 1000: 1000/50Mbps — $149.95

Uniti OPENetwork Plans

Unit also offers OPENetwork plans, if your house can get on the network. Plans start at $69.95 for the 25Mbps maximum speed plan, and up to $149.95 for the 1000Mbps highest speed plan. Setup fees, modem costs and contract periods apply, as with earlier mentioned plans. Uniti OPENetwork plans can be found below:

  • The 25: 25/5Mbps — $69.95
  • The 50: 50/20Mbps — $79.95
  • The 100: 100/20Mbps — $89.95
  • The 250: 250/25Mbps — $119.95
  • The 1000: 1000/50Mbps — $149.95

Uniti RedTrain Plans

If you’re interested in a RedTrain plan, Uniti offers those as well, however homes that can access the RedTrain network are not common across Australia. You can find RedTrain prices below. Keep in mind that earlier mentioned modem costs, activation fees and contracts apply.

  • The 25: 25/5Mbps — $69.95
  • The 50: 50/20Mbps — $79.95
  • The 100: 100/20Mbps — $99.95

Uniti fixed wireless plans

Separate from the NBN and other fibre networks, Uniti operates its own fixed wireless network, which is available where applicable (check on the website). The inclusions for Uniti’s fixed wireless plans are different to other plans, but the biggest difference is the setup fee: $799 on no contract plans, $149 on 12-month contracts. This covers the equipment Uniti will need to install at your property.

Uniti’s base plan for this internet type is The 25, which costs $69.95 per month for a max speed download speed of 25Mbps and a max speed upload of 5Mbps. A boost to 50Mbps is available with a $10 per month add-on, and to 100Mbps with a $30 per month add-on.

Uniti home wireless broadband

As if Uniti could offer any more types of internet, home wireless broadband is also available. Two home wireless broadband plans are available – ‘The 200’, which offers 200GB data for $65 per month, and ‘The 500’, which offers 500GB data for $75 per month.

A modem from Uniti is required for this service (specifically, the Enhanced Hybrid 4G LTE Gateway), and you can’t bring your own. On the no-contract plan, a modem costs $219.95, and on the 12 month plan, the modem costs $119.95; commit to 24 months and the modem is included. Uniti’s home wireless broadband plans operate on the Optus network, and a SIM card will be supplied.

Uniti Customer Service & Support

If you have any questions, complaints or problems with a Uniti service, there’s a few ways that you can get in touch with Uniti directly. Uniti’s opening hours are 8am to 9pm, Monday to Friday (South Australian time), and 9am to 5pm on Saturday and Sunday.

How does Uniti compare to other providers?

Uniti offers plans on an extensive range of networks, and could very well be your next NBN provider as much as it could be your next LBNco or RedTrain provider. Prices aren’t the most generous, nor are the setup fees, however it’s certainly not ludicrously expensive to hop on a Uniti plan.

If you’re after an internet provider that isn’t one of the big names and doesn’t indulge in unnecessary extras, check out the providers below:

The above telcos don’t waste time on unnecessary extras, trying to keep things as simple as possible – just be wary of modem costs, setup fees and contract lengths.

Is Uniti good value for money?

Uniti isn’t the cheapest provider on the market, but it’s also not an expensive telco, offering fairly affordable prices at different speed tiers across a wide range of networks. On the NBN network it might be a hard sell against other providers, with whom you might be able to get a greater discount or a faster speed, but on non-NBN plans you might find a great deal. Uniti’s setup fees and contract requirements aren’t that attractive either, but they’re not restrictive policies either – you’ll just need to decide whether you prefer flexibility or zero setup costs.
