Telstra’s NBN plan discount comes with a few caveats.
PSA: Selected Telstra NBN plans are now $10 cheaper per month
When we reviewed Telstra’s NBN plans, they came out on top of the competition with the fastest Netflix streaming speeds and best perks (entertainment bundles, the Telstra Plus rewards program, presale access and more). However, the biggest sticking point when it came to their internet plans was always the price. Fortunately, Australia’s biggest telco has just slashed a neat $10 per month off selected packages, making those bills a whole lot more palatable (albeit still on the pricey side).
So, what’s the catch? Well, the promotion comes with a few stipulations. Firstly, you have to be a new customer (bet you saw that one coming). Second, the $10 discount only applies to NBN plans valued at $90 or more. Finally, the $10 off per month only lasts for a year, after which you’ll be back to the usual monthly cost.
Still, it’s not often you can nab an NBN plan with Telstra TV or secure Telstra’s Premium Speed + Unlimited Data (which boasts average evening speeds of 88 Mbps) for a cool $100 or less. Take a look at the available discounted plans below.
Given all the discounted plans (except for the Telstra TV bundle) are contract-free, the $10 per month discount is a great opportunity to try Telstra before you commit. All plans come with Telstra Broadband Protect, meaning if you're not happy with your service in the first 30 days, you can leave at no extra cost (though you will need to pay out your Telstra TV and/or Smart Modem).
Even with the discount in mind, however, Telstra is still one of the more expensive providers out there. If you prefer savings over perks, check out the most popular (cheaper) with comparable features to Telstra.
