A new page on Aussie Broadband’s website has popped up showing discounts on NBN 100/20, 100/40, 250/25 and 1000/50 plans.
The promotion drops prices of NBN 100/20 and 100/40 to $89 per month, NBN 250/25 to $99 per month, and 1000/50 to $119 per month. The deals shown below are for existing customers:
This means if you were already on a 100/20 plan, you can double your download speed and then some for no extra cost, or save $10 per month.
New customers are unable to sign up for promotional pricing on 100/40 plans, instead receiving the following offers:
The promotional pricing is available to new and existing customers, subject to availability – the two fastest plans are only available to FTTP and some HFC connections. You can check if these speeds are available in the MyAussie app or web page.
Discounted pricing is set to last for 6 months, and the promotion can be claimed up through the 31st July. Existing customers must have held their plan for three months to receive the discounted pricing.
The discounts come as NBN Co incentivises the higher speed plans for six months, trying to tempt customers to higher speed, more profitable plans so both retailers and the national broadband network operator can increase earnings.
Why? Well, those high speed plans are rarely used at their full speed much of the time, and – like most internet connections – sit pretty well idle for hours on end most days of the week. It’s a good money spinner.
With this discounting on offer, expect to see some other ISPs coming out with deals soon too, so keep an eye out.
