Why unlimited data?


The main reason you'd consider an unlimited data NBN plan is because it means you never run the risk of bill shock. If you have unlimited data, there's no way you can use more than what you're paying for.

Is unlimited data expensive?


Since unlimited data is now very much the norm when it comes to fixed line internet plans, it's hard to call it expensive. There are cheap unlimited data plans and there are pricy unlimited data plans, but the biggest factor affecting the price of your NBN plan is how fast your connection is.

It is however worth noting that unlimited data NBN plans aren't available if you're connecting to the National Broadband Network via satellite.

Is unlimited really unlimited?


For the most part, yes, unlimited data is actually unlimited. If you're signing up to an unlimited data internet plan in Australia, you can download as much as you want, and your telco can't cut you off or slow your speeds. This would be classed as misleading and deceptive conduct, and Australian telcos have gotten in trouble with the ACCC over this in the past.

That being said, the vast majority of internet service providers have a "fair use policy", but this trends to relate to using your internet connection in an unreasonable or fraudulent manner rather than downloading too much.

How are unlimited NBN plans different?


While unlimited data NBN plans all share a common feature - unlimited data - there's plenty of differences. The biggest is the NBN speed the plan is configured on, but there's a number of other factors to consider.

The main ones you'll need to think about are your contract term, and in turn, setup fees. Many NBN providers will ask you to commit to a year in exchange for reduced setup fees, while going month-to-month could mean paying greater upfront costs. Some NBN providers offer $0 setup fees on month-to-month plans, but you'll still need to pay for a NBN capable modem if you don't have one.

If you're uncertain about what exactly it is you want, we tend to recommend starting out on a NBN 25 / Standard Evening Speed plan with no contract, and hopefully, minimal set-up fees. This gives you a little bit of extra flexibility in the event that you're not happy with your provider or if you want to change plans.

Are there any downsides to unlimited?


While unlimited NBN is cheaper than it's ever been, it might not be the best option for you if you're not online much. Many telcos still offer plans with 100GB and 200GB of data at around $10 to $20 cheaper than most comparable unlimited data plans. If you know you'd never use more than 200GB in a month, it might be worth taking up a smaller plan to save yourself a bit of cash.
