How low can we go? Online retailer Kogan has upped the ante in the latest price war on the National Broadband Network (NBN).
Today Kogan announced it has slashed prices across all three of its NBN plans, with unlimited data potentially costing less than $60 a month.
Kogan reduced its Standard speed plan from $63.90 to $57.90, its Standard Plus plan from $68.90 to $65.90 and its Premium speed plan from $88.90 to $85.90.
This means customers can get up to 100Mbps speeds with unlimited data for under $90 a month and that Kogan is now undercutting many competitors by a few dollars.
The Standard Plus and Premium plans also come with free Large Kogan Mobile recharges. The Large mobile plan comes with unlimited calls and texts plus 16GB of data, ordinarily worth $36.90 per 30 days.
Kogan said that these price changes reflect the price war that’s going on among telcos.
“We’re not offering flash in the pan prices that disappear – we work hard to provide the best deals consistently,” said Ross Metherell, Kogan’s Director of Strategy.
“We’ve seen hundreds of thousands of Aussies make the switch to Kogan Mobile and now they can access even more savings by connecting their home to a Kogan Internet NBN service.”
All Kogan internet plans are month-to-month and attract no setup fees, barring the optional Wi-Fi modem that costs $69 upfront.
The news comes after Vodafone dramatically slashed its NBN plan prices on Tuesday. Kogan uses Vodafone network infrastructure for its NBN and mobile phone plans.
