When you're on the hunt for the speediest NBN plan available, the sheer range of options, providers and contracts can be a tad baffling. Some telcos are offering what should be the same speed for half the price of others, so what's the catch?
We've painstakingly sifted through all the minutiae and detail of the NBN plans on offer and found the fastest plans that also deliver great value. So, if you're looking for an NBN100 plan, you've come to the right place.
Overall best value
Although you'll be needing to bring your own modem along to this plan (or pay $109.95 for the company's offer), this is still exceptional value for an unlimited data, NBN100, no contract NBN plan. Even after you've gotten the first 6 months at a cheaper rate, the increased rate afterwards is still great value.
Total minimum cost is $76.88
Cheapest NBN100 plan
Exetel are offering some killer value right now, and that doesn't exclude the top speed tier on the NBN. After a $20 startup fee, you'll only be paying $69.99 a month for 100GB of data on NBN100 with typical evening speeds of 83Mbps. The 12-month contract nets you a free modem too.
Total minimum cost over 12 months is $859.88

Best premium plan
It's definitely not as cheap as our other options, but it's the cheapest plan around offering this number of inclusions. Unlimited data, 80Mbps typical evening speed on NBN100, Optus Sport subscription, Fetch Mini set-top box with a channel pack included, and the Sagemcom AC premium WiFi modem.
Total minimum cost is $2,880
While the speed tier that a service uses is indicative of the level of download and upload speeds that can be obtained (i.e. NBN100 should be up to 100Mbps), this will vary with actual usage.
Thankfully, telcos are now required to advertise a "typical evening speed" to give you a better indication of what you'll be facing in reality. For NBN100, we're generally seeing "typical evening speeds" between 75-85Mbps.
