Kogan is the latest provider to launch super-fast NBN plans

Advertisement

The NBN is undergoing a bit of a speed-tier overhaul and the latest NBN provider to jump on the bandwagon of offering super-fast NBN plans is online retailer Kogan.

In addition to NBN plans across the NBN 25, NBN 50 and NBN 100 speed tiers, you can now pick up a plan on NBN 250 (Home Superfast) and NBN 1000 (Home Ultrafast) speed tiers. These plans more than double the maximum theoretical download speeds previously offered by NBN Co.

As our internet speed needs increase thanks to the popularity of video streaming and improved 4K and 8K technology, more NBN providers have started to offer these super-fast speeds as a way of servicing Aussies who want the fastest NBN speeds available.

Kogan NBN 250 and NBN 1000 plans and prices

Kogan’s NBN 250 plan, known as the Platinum plan, includes unlimited data and a 200Mbps typical evening speed for $128.90 per month on a month-to-month plan. For the first six months of your plan, new Kogan internet customers will enjoy the discounted monthly price of $116.90 in the form of monthly credit, with prices reverting to $128.90 per month after those six months are up.

As for the Home Ultrafast NBN 1000 speed tier, Kogan’s Diamond plan also includes unlimited data but a 250Mbps typical evening speed for $148.90 per month on a month-to-month plan. Like its other NBN plans, new customers will enjoy the discounted price of $134.90 per month, for the first six months, in the form of monthly credit. Prices will revert to $148.90 per month after those six months. Both plans include the option to BYO compatible modem or you can add on a Kogan modem for an additional $69 upfront.

It’s worth noting that the typical evening speeds recorded by Kogan are still being tested. Speeds currently listed were recorded from testing in June 2020, so it’s likely as more speed testing is done, the performance of these speed tiers may change.

Like with other NBN providers offering Home Superfast and Home Ultrafast speed tiers, your ability to connect to these plans does depend on your home NBN connection type and location. To sign up to either of these fast NBN plans, you’ll most likely need a Fibre to the Premises (FTTP) or Hybrid Fibre Coaxial (HFC) connection. Kogan does state that if you have any of the other connection types (i.e. FTTB, FTTN or FTTC), they will check your maximum line speed after service is activated and notify you if the connection at your address doesn’t support the speed tier you’ve chosen. Kogan may then switch you to a plan more suited to the speeds available to you, so you’re not paying too much for a speed your connection can’t achieve.

Vodafone is another provider offering fast NBN plans, with both NBN 250 and NBN 1000 plans available.
