Kogan's telco has refreshed its 4G home internet offering, and it's a rather unusual change. While most internet plans are sold on a month-to-month basis, Kogan's new 4G home internet plan has customers paying for 90 days at a time. This makes it more like long-expiry prepaid, rather than the internet plans we've typically seen in Australia.

The plan itself costs $149.70 per 90 days. That's the equivalent of $49.90 per month. While customers have to pay for a longer time period upfront, it's cheaper than Kogan's old 4G home internet plan, which was billed at $54.90 per month. Here's the plan:

The new plan also includes a free modem, while customers previously had to pay $130 in upfront fees. There are no exit fees for leaving, but you will forfeit any unused days. Also note that auto-recharge will be on for this plan by default, so if you don't cancel when you want to, you'll be up for another 90-day commitment.

Kogan reports typical evening speeds of 16Mbps on its 4G home internet plan, with maximum download speeds of 20Mbps. That's fairly standard for 4G home internet.

When compared to other 4G home wireless internet plans, Kogan works out to be cheaper in exchange for the longer-term commitment. TPG's 4G home internet plan, for example, costs $54.99 per month, and is also powered by the Vodafone network.
