What speeds do I need?

As the connection continues to your premises, the service will be affected by other factors, which will determine the performance of your service. Below is a table overview of the popular speed tiers for FTTN, FTTC, HFC, and FTTP*. Fixed Wireless has a separate Fixed Wireless Plus plan available for all Fixed Wireless customers.

  • nbn™50 – This is the perfect plan for families – stream Netflix in HD, game online and stay connected on all of your devices. This tier offers a theoretical maximum upload speed of 20 megabits per second.
  • nbn™100 – This service is for power users requiring higher download speeds (eg. 4K video streaming) and getting the most out of every device in the house. This tier is divided in two with one offering a theoretical speed of 20 megabits per second upload and the other offers a theoretical maximum upload speed of 40 megabits per second. This service is not available on Fixed Wireless connections.

You can also achieve a theoretical maximum upload speed of 50 megabits per second. This service is available on FTTP and limited HFC connections.
  • Fixed Wireless Plus – This tier is available for fixed wireless customers only. It’s a best effort speed tier with no peak evening speed guarantees. We will endeavour to provide you with potential nbn™ tower congestion issues during the signup process.
