NBN Bundles Compared

Advertisement

The home phone isn’t dead just yet! Surprisingly, the rollout of the NBN has somewhat revitalised it, with service providers giving customers the opportunity to bundle both home phone packs and broadband plans, as well as entertainment extras such as pay and streaming television.

The common form of home phone type in these bundles is through VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol), and to a lesser extent the NBN phone. Essentially, you’ll make and receive calls using your internet connection, rather than old-school copper wire. If you still need home phone access, you’ll find most providers offer pay-as-you-go or unlimited calling options, either pre-bundled into their NBN plans or as an optional add-on.

If you’re interested in making the most of your NBN plan, we’ve compiled which top providers offer bundling options. Find out what some of the top telcos are doing, and how much you can expect to pay for an NBN, phone, or entertainment bundle.

NBN bundle providers

Below is a list of some of the top NBN providers in Australia. The home phone isn’t dead – you just have to find the right bundle. Hit the links below to see what the major providers are offering.

Telstra NBN bundles

Telstra has re-jigged and simplified its plan offerings lately, but still offers optional entertainment add-ons through Telstra TV, Kayo Sports, and Foxtel or Foxtel Now from Telstra. Telstra TV is made available for an additional $9 per month on 24-month plans, streaming service Kayo can be added to your plan from an extra $25 each month, and Foxtel Now packs also begin at $25.

If you’re interested in traditional Foxtel, add-ons begin from just $30 per month for Entertainment + Drama, or for Entertainment + Movies, $39 for Entertainment + Sport, $59 for Entertainment + Sport + Movies, or Entertainment + Sport + Drama, and $99 for all available channels.

All of Telstra’s broadband plans include unlimited standard local, national and mobile calls. If you would like international calling, you can add International Ultimate for $15 extra each month, and receive unlimited calls to landlines in 35 countries, and to mobiles in 17 countries.

Telstra’s broadband plans begin at $70 per month for 100GB of data, or $90 for unlimited gigabytes.

Vodafone NBN bundles

Vodafone provides three tiers of NBN speed, and unlimited data on NBN 25 is just $59 per month on a no lock-in contract. For new customers who already have a postpaid Vodafone mobile plan, there are periodical discounts and bonus offers that apply if you bundle both internet and mobile plans.

If you have an existing Vodafone mobile plan, but want to keep your existing phone number when switching to Vodafone NBN, you can add Vodafone Mobile Landline for $5 per month. This diverts all landline calls to your Vodafone mobile, with rates determined by the call inclusions in your Vodafone mobile plan.

Other popular bundled NBN providers

Did you know there are more than 100 NBN providers? While it’s impossible to list all of them here, it’s important to know there are more out there than the six mentioned above. Other service providers with home phone bundles worthy of consideration are:

You may not have heard of some of these providers, but  many lower-cost telcos offer seriously competitive NBN plans and home phone bundles. Unlimited data can be found for under $60 a month with the bulk of these NBN providers, while home phone calls are as little as $5 a month extra. There are a whole heap of NBN resellers out there – the right plan for you is bound to be just around the corner.

Is an NBN bundle worth the money?

Bundling your NBN plan with a home phone deal can save some money, as opposed to if you sourced each separately. Not only that, but it can be more convenient to let one provider set it all up for you. Some NBN providers include calls and a VoIP phone at no extra charge, while some charge about $5-$10 a month extra.

While it can be tempting to find a deal with cheap PAYG rates, short term short phone calls can often add up in the long run. So before diving into a bundle, you’ll need to consider how much you will actually use your home phone, and who you’ll be calling – if you regularly call mobiles, or need to keep in touch with loved ones overseas, a calling pack is definitely your best bet.

In terms of entertainment extras, bundling your home broadband with a streaming device, or services such as Foxtel or Kayo, again offers convenience and simplicity for many families. Keep in mind that you can also buy devices such as Telstra TV or Fetch TV outright, rather than pay them off on a monthly basis (although streaming services such as Netflix require their own, separate monthly subscription).

While home phones may be becoming a thing of the past,  there’s pretty much never been a better time to bundle NBN and a home phone together. All you have to do is shop around for the best deals.
