Canstar Blue explores some of the more noteworthy internet deals currently available, as well as what you’ll need to keep in mind if shopping around.

iiNet Internet Deals

iiNet has long won Australia over with its customer service and competitively priced internet plans. iiNet has released a deal that includes Fetch TV packages at no extra cost, but how big of a bonus you get depends on your internet plan.

How to get the best internet deal

When you’re looking for an internet deal, you’ll most likely find discounts on your plan fees to be the most common deal on offer, but entertainment inclusions are also common, which includes internet deals with TV inclusions such as Fetch. Often entertainment packs are additional cost burdens when signing up to a new plan – some to the tune of $10 or more per month. If you’re after a new plan but concerned about the massive upfront cost, choosing a provider offering deals or discounts on entertainment may be the way to go. Discounts on your plan fees or other costs like modems and activation are common deals on offer, but you’ll have to keep in mind when taking advantage of these deals that:

  • Deals and discounts may only be available for the first few months of a plan — look at the non-discounted plan price before signing up
  • More notable deals are often only found on 12 or 24-month contract plans
  • Other providers offer free set-up and free modems as standard, so these deals may not be as good as they sound

All in all, while these deals sound great, there are sometimes a number of hoops to jump through. You should always compare these deals and plans before choosing a new provider as it pays to compare these offers against what deals other providers have.

What is the best internet deal for me?

When you’re looking for the best internet deal for you, it’s important to remember that the cheapest deal isn’t always the best plan for your needs. There are many things you need to consider when comparing NBN plans including:

  • Price — What price range is within your budget?
  • Speed tier — Which speed will suit your household best?
  • Connection type — What NBN connection do you have in your home and which speeds are available on that connection type?
  • Data — Do you need unlimited data on your plan?
  • Provider — Does your provider of choice off the plan you want in your area?
  • Entertainment Extras — Do you want bundled inclusions such as Fetch or other TV added on?

Once you’ve considered these questions this should help you understand what the best NBN plan is going to be for you. Once you know what you want, you can compare NBN plans from a range of providers. Our comparison tool at the top of this page can help you filter providers based on price, speed tier, inclusions and more. This should give you a good idea of what options are available to you. It’s free to use and quick to compare a wide range of plans from many of Australia’s top providers.

If you’re interested in what other Aussies have to say about some of Australia’s top NBN providers, you can check out our NBN Providers Most Satisfied Customers award, where NBN providers are rated based on results from our customer satisfaction survey which rates NBN providers on: speed and reliability, customer service, value for money, ease of setup, bill and cost clarity, and overall satisfaction.

When you’ve compared internet plans from a range of providers, it should help you not only understand what plans are out there, but help you to find the best internet deal for your needs.
