NBN Cost Q & A

Q. How much will it cost me?

A. NBN plans start from as little as $30 a month for a faster, more reliable service.

Q. How much are NBN plans?

A. NBN packages are already proving to be competitive with existing broadband services, such as ADSL, for a better service. Plans start from as little as $30 a month for a 12 megabits per second (Mbps) download speed and one Mbps upload service with a 15 gigabyte (GB) monthly data allowance. Other service providers are charging around $55 a month for a 25 Mbps download service and a 50 GB a month data allowance. If you want even higher speeds and more data, there are plans of up to 100 Mbps download and 40 Mbps upload for reasonable prices.

Q.Will I still have to pay line rental?

A. Unlike most ADSL broadband services, you don't have to pay extra for telephone line rental. One NBN connection can support both voice and internet services, and the cost of that connection is already included in your plan. Additionally, the standard installation of NBN Co equipment is free.

Q. How can I work out what I'll pay?

A. You can easily compare your current plan with NBN offers, by checking out independent plan comparison websites such as ?.

Q. Which providers are offering services?

A. More than 30 internet service providers offer NBN plans, and competition between NBN service providers has resulted in some lowering their prices and increasing their data allowances. Details of all service providers are available on NBN Co's website (

Q. How will the NBN give all homes and businesses access to affordable broadband?

A. NBN Co will roll out the network and sell wholesale service to internet and phone providers. NBN Co is a wholesale provider and does not sell its services direct to the public. To connect to the NBN, you will need to give your retail service provider a call. People and businesses will then purchase the broadband and telephone services they need from a retailer, just like they do now. As a customer, this means greater competition and greater choice -- you'll still have your choice of service provider, data speeds, data volume and the price you pay.

Q. How does wholesale pricing affect me?

A. The wholesale access price of basic NBN services will be the same across all three technologies -- $24 a month for speeds of 12 Mbps download and one Mbps upload and $27 for speeds of 25 Mbps download and five Mbps upload. This means wherever you live or do business, for the first time you will pay the same wholesale price for the same basic service. The wholesale access price is the largest influence on retail price, so the uniform national wholesale price should translate into retail prices that will be both affordable and very competitive.
