Editor's pick: best Telstra internet plans October 2017

Whether you're looking at Telstra for your ADSL, NBN, cable, or even wireless internet, we've handpicked a couple of great deals. 

It's worth noting that Telstra's fixed line broadband pricing is identical across ADSL, Cable, and NBN. No matter what technology type you're using to connect, you'll pay the same. Well, unless you're tacking on NBN or Cable exclusive functionality like a speed pack. 

If you'd prefer to find yourself a deal, check out the rest of Telstra's plans, here.

Best basics


If you just want to get online, your best bet from Telstra is an $80 per month online only offer that gets you 500GB of data.

This plan doesn't include calls, so if you want to keep using your landline, you'll be charged at pay-as-you-go rates.

Best TV bundle


Telstra is one of the few internet providers who'll hook you up with your Foxtel and your broadband on the same bill. The cheapest way to do this is Telstra's $120 per month plan, which includes 2TB of data, a Telstra TV set-top box, and the basic Foxtel channel package.

You'll also get three months of free access to either Sports or Movies and Drama, but you'll need to pay extra for additional channels after the offer is over.

In terms of calls, you get unlimited calls to Australian fixed line and mobile numbers, and discounted call rates to over 70 countries charged per minute block plus a call connection fee.

Best home wireless / mobile broadband 


If you want a hefty amount of mobile data on Telstra, you'll need to part with a pretty penny. That being said, $150 per month currently gets you 50GB of data and a bonus 30GB, for a total of 80GB per month. It's not cheap, but at the least, it's flexible. 

If you're actually hoping to replace a fixed line connection with 4G, 80GB might be a touch tight, but should lost you unless you're streaming every single night of the week. 

You can either get this plan on a 12- or 24-month contract. If you opt for the 24-month contract, you'll get a Netgear Nighthawk M1 portable modem for no extra cost. If you go for 12-months, you'll only get the SIM.
