When the first consumer NBN 1000 plan hit the market last year, we were pleasantly surprised at its asking price – AU$149 a month. But now a number of providers have steeply discounted their plans, so it’s a great time to try out superfast broadband.
MyRepublic has the cheapest NBN 1000 plan on the market, giving you 1Gbps broadband for AU$99 a month, making it the lowest price we’ve seen to date on this insanely-fast speed tier.
But it’s not just MyRepublic offering a heavily discounted NBN 1000 plan. Other ISPs are also cutting the price of their fastest plans and we’ve rounded up the best of what’s on offer in a curated list below.
Please note, all plans are only available to fibre-to-the-premises (FTTP) and select hybrid fibre coaxial (HFC) locations.
This deal sees MyRepublic with the cheapest NBN 1000 plan on the market at AU$99 a month. That price is only available for your first six months on the service though, after which your plan will increase to the usual AU$129 a month. That’s a saving of AU$30 each month, or AU$180 in total. You can expect a typical evening speed of 250Mbps on this plan.
Total minimum cost is AU$99
This well-loved ISP has slashed the cost of its premium NBN 1000 plan down to AU$119 a month, making it the second-cheapest plan in its class.

If you’d like to redeem, you’ll need to enter the code FAST30 when you check out.

Telstra typically has some pricey NBN plans, but now’s your chance to sign up for just AU$100 a month. The offer is available for your first six months with the provider, before it increases to the standard rate of AU$140 a month – that’s AU$40 off each month, or AU$240 saved in total. You can expect a typical download speed of 215Mbps in the evenings on this plan. While it comes with no contract term, you'll need to pay for the Telstra Smart Modem (AU$216) if you leave within 24 months.
