The National Broadband Network with its revolutionary broadband technologies has inspired Australians from all across the country to give up their traditional copper wire broadband service in favour of fast and reliable Internet plans.
For those who have not made the switch yet, you may be wondering which is the best NBN Internet plan for your home. Given that different people use the Internet in different ways, you simply can’t pick the first entry-level plan that is offered to you. You need to do your homework about the different Internet Service Providers in your community before choosing one that you and your family can rely on in the long run.
- Which companies service your area?
The availability of Internet service largely depends on your location. If you live in the city or suburb, it will be relatively easy for you to make the switch to either NBN fixed line or NBN fixed wireless plan. If you are living in remote locations or deep in the Outback, you don’t have to worry as many ISPs are offering NBN satellite plans at competitive prices.
Major ISPs that operate in urban areas may not have the permission to operate in remote areas. If this is the case, we highly recommend that you do your homework and look for four to five ISPs and compare plans across them to get the best NBN satellite deal.
- How much bandwidth does your household actually need?
In order to choose the best plan for you home, you need to determine the amount of bandwidth that you need and whether it is within your budget. In essence, bandwidth refers to the amount of data that can be transferred to your Internet-enabled devices on a monthly basis. By rule, the more bandwidth you buy, the more efficient the service will be. For multiple households, NBN data plans with larger bandwidths are recommended. This will allow your family to perform data-intensive activities such as streaming videos, downloading music, and uploading multimedia files, too!
We highly suggest that you get an entry-level NBN Internet plan if you live alone. If you perform most of your browsing and online activities at work or in school, the cheapest NBN broadband deal will do the trick for you.
