Aussie Broadband has shaken up its residential NBN plans today, offering new – and more affordable – plans. Some of the new plans take advantage of NBN Co’s newly announced speed tiers at the 250 / 25 Mbps and 100 / 20 Mbps levels.
As an NBN retailer, Aussie Broadband has been offering faster than typical plans for some time now. We reviewed Aussie’s 250 / 100 Mbps plans earlier this year, but they were rather expensive at $250 a month. The new speed tier, whilst offering slower uploads, still offers incredible download speed at a significantly reduced price of just $169 a month.
Going forward, the 100 / 40 Mbps NBN Premium plan will remain available to consumers, but it isn’t shown as a “popular plan” – users will have to go to the “Build Your Own Plan” option to select this speed.
The Premium 100 / 40 Mbps plan will start at $90 for 100GB and up to $99 for Unlimited, whereas the 100 / 20 Mbps plan will be $10 less across that range as shown above.
Alongside these two big announcements, Aussie has also made the following changes:
- re-introducing the smaller 12/1 plan for customers who only need basic browsing and emails, starting at $40 per month
- dropping the “slider” plans that offered customised data
- reducing some of the small business plans, with the 250/100 unlimited plan dropping by over $70, and
- dropping the cost of a static IP.
The new plans are set out below:
Existing customers need not be concerned; all existing plans will be grandfathered for current customers.
For those looking for more speed, Aussie has promised to be amongst the first to offer NBN Co’s 1 Gbps plans when they launch in May next year.
