What are the best internet deals?

It’s probably fair to say that internet in Australia is lacking by global standards, and compared with other countries pretty expensive for what you get. In this sense, it’s reasonable to assume that people want to get the best deals on their internet wherever possible.

Luckily, month to month you can expect at least a handful of service providers to sweeten the deal on what they already offer and throw in things like free activation, free modems, discounts and so on. 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.

Superloop Internet Deals

If you’re looking for some straightforward NBN plans without the hassle, Superloop has a simple suite of plans across a range of speed tiers. While you’ll be able to pick up plans with the more popular NBN speeds — NBN 25, 50 and 100 (both 100/20 and 100/40) — Superloop is also one of the few providers offering plans on the faster speed tiers (NBN 250 and NBN 1000).

As a sort of ‘no frills’ provider, you won’t be able to add on any extras such as call packs or entertainment bundles. While you can add on a modem, different home connections will require different types of modems and you’ll need to give Superloop a call in order to add on a modem. You can easily customise your plan by building it with your preferred data and speed inclusions, or simply choose one of the four ‘popular’ plans, designed for most users.

Currently you score some pretty generous discounts for your first six months if you sign up to any of the main plans with unlimited data. You’ll pay $59.95 per month for NBN 25 (which reverts back to $54.95 per month after those first six months), for NBN 50 you’ll pay $59.95 per month (which reverts back to $69.95 per month after your first six months), for NBN 100/20 speeds you’ll pay $74.95 per month (reverting to $89.95 per month after the first six months) and for NBN 100/40 speeds, you’ll pay $88.95 per month (reverting back to $98.95 per month after the first six months).

If you want super-fast NBN speeds, the NBN 250 plan is discounted to $99.95 per month (reverts back to $119.95 per month after the first six months) and NBN 1000 is $119.95 per month (reverts back to $139.95 per month after the first six months). These offers are available until withdrawn. Terms apply.

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.

This usually costs at least $5 per month on top of your internet plan, so it makes for some solid savings; however, you will need to pay an upfront setup cost of $59.99.

Currently, iiNet is cutting $10 off the monthly price of its popular NBN 50 plan for new customers for the first 12 months. This brings the $99.99 price down to $89.99, saving you $120 in your first year. This offer is available until withdrawn.

How to find a cheap internet plan

When you’re looking for cheap internet plan, 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 upfront cost, choosing a provider offering cheap internet plans 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 cheap internet plans that:

  • 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.

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?

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.
