The fastest NBN plans in Australia

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.

Australia's first and only residential NBN1000 plan

Aussie Broadband has jumped ahead of all the other providers and offered up a residential NBN plan with download speeds of up to 1Gbps (ten times faster than the theoretical maximum for existing premium plans).

Before rushing to sign up though, there are a couple of caveats you should be aware of. Namely, the plan is only available on two types of NBN connection – fibre-to-the-premises (FTTP) and hybrid fibre coaxial (HFC). And while all FTTP connections can sign up for 1000Mbps, that speed will only work with a select subset of HFC installations – estimated to be roughly 7% of the total.

To see what’s available in your area, you can check your address on Aussie Broadband's website – note that you may need to select 'Build your own' to see the higher-speed 250Mbps and 1000Mbps plans.

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.
