NBN Bundles Compared

Advertisement

The home phone isn’t dead just yet! The NBN has somewhat revitalised it with service providers giving customers the opportunity to bundle both home phone packs and broadband plans. The common form of home phone type in these bundles is through VoIP and to a lesser extent the NBN phone. Find out what some of the top providers are doing and how much you can expect to pay for an NBN and phone bundle.

Telstra NBN Bundles

Telstra has re-jigged and simplified its plan offerings lately, lowering the price of unlimited data to $89 on its NBN 50 plan. If you want included entertainment, you can upgrade to the $99 Unlimited + Streaming pack, which includes Telstra TV and a 24-month Foxtel Now subscription.

All of Telstra’s broadband plans include unlimited standard local, national and mobile calls. If you’d 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.

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:

Some of these providers have funky names, but don’t let that distract you from their 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 providers 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 providers include calls and a VoIP phone at no extra charge, while some charge about $5-$10 a month extra.

  • It can be tempting to find a deal with cheap PAYG rates, but those short phone calls can add up in the long run.
  • Before diving into a bundle, you will need to consider how much you will actually use your home phone.

One weekly phone call to Nanna could make the extra costs more than worthwhile. Home phones may be becoming a thing of the past, but funnily enough 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.
