It feels like the best NBN plan changes every month, and it depends what you’re looking for – the cheapest offer, the fastest evening speeds, the most data for less cost, or more.

However, if you’re like me, you’re a speed demon – you want the fastest plan you can get at the best price you’ve got to pay – and you’re prepared to look at other providers to get that premium speed.

Of course, you’ve got to have the right type of NBN connection to get those speeds. Those stuck on FTTN are – generally speaking – unlikely to reach peak evening speeds due to the way their internet connectivity is delivered. However, if you’re on FTTC, HFC or FTTP, there’s a good chance you’re able to get whatever speeds your chosen NBN provider can deliver.

So, with that in mind, let’s run down the best this month:

Of our fastest plans this month, the fastest of the lot is Superloop’s 500GB plan, offering 90 Mbps typical evening speeds for just $79.95 a month with no contract.

Second fastest is Aussie Broadband’s Power user NBN plan, and while it costs a little more – at $99 a month – it does offer the added incentive of unlimited data.

Tied for third place are Vodafone’s Premium unlimited NBN plan at $69 a month for the first six months, reverting to $89 a month afterwards.

Kogan’s Gold Unlimited plan offers the same speeds – 85 Mbps typical evening speeds – for $75.90 a month for the first six months, reverting to $85.90 thereafter.

Many of the other plans on the list are a little more expensive or have the same kind of six-monthly discounting before reverting to a more expensive price, but if you’re after the fastest plan at the lowest cost, Superloop’s 500GB plan is about the best value you can get for now.

I can only dream of those speeds unless I’m willing to spend $14,000 and make it so everyone else in the street can upgrade for $3000 odd

That’s all great provided you’re not on satellite. Top of the line with Iinet is 200gb data. Catch is (& no one tells you this) is you get 50gb peak & 150gb off peak (off peak is between 1:00am and 6:00am) most normal people are asleep. Once you use the peak data it drops to a point where you can’t even open an email or a web page. According to iinet this is set up by the NBN nothing they can do. Just GARBAGE

Using VPN in Sydney on Aussie I get ping 7ms, 92.15 down; 35.04 up. FTTC. Faster if I pull off the VPN. Probably overkill for my needs, but I am speedfreak; can’t stand looking at a screen waiting for something to load.

What about AussieBroadband’s offering of 150Mbps & 250Mbps plans?

It is laughable how commentators complain about slow speed rankings for Australia and don’t mention that speeds faster than 100Mbps are available.
