Everyone loves a special, and why not a special on your Internet bill in the lead up to the festive (and already expensive) season. We’ve got deals from Superloop, Kogan, MyRepublic and Telstra, so let’s take a look.
First up is Superloop, which we’ve covered recently, which has $21 off all plans for the first six months. This makes the cheapest plan on offer just $52, and you can get full 100 / 40 Mbps unlimited data for $77.95 a month. That’s a big saving, even if you don’t stay on after the initial six month period.
With no cancellation fees, and changing providers on the NBN often taking as little as 15 minutes, there’s never a better time to grab a better deal than right now.
Kogan has a deal in its 100 / 40 Mbps NBN Premium unlimited plan, where customers will pay just $75.90 for the first six months, reverting to $85.90 thereafter. Again, there’s no contracts here, and customers receive a free modem too.
Kogan’s plan is cheaper than Superloop’s plan after the introductory period, too, but the compromise is slightly slower average evening speeds – 83 Mbps on Kogan vs 90 Mbps on Superloop.
MyRepublic isn’t offering special pricing deals per se, though it does offer a standard six month introductory pricing of $79.95 for the first six months on NBN Premium 100 / 40 Mbps plans, reverting to $89.95 thereafter.
While you do have to sign up for a contract to join MyRepublic’s promotional plan, the flip side is you’ll receive a $200 Virtual MAstercard e-Gift card, if you use the promo code “XMASTREAT”. Amortised over the twelve month contract period, you save an additional $16.67 a month which makes the twelve month term quite cheap by comparison to others.
With Telstra, you receive the first month free, and the standard $99 connection fee is being waved as well. Why consider Telstra? Well, the nation’s biggest telco offers a contract-free NBN experience, and while they quote an 80 Mbps typical evening speed – which is slow by industry standards – they claim between May and October to have delivered 90 Mbps typical evening speed, which is quite high.
Make of this what you will, but with NBN you’re always advised to shop around – there are some great deals available pretty much whenever you go looking.
