How to choose the best Internet plan for you

What makes an Internet plan the “best” changes from person to person, so we’ve compiled a list of things to look out for when you’re trying to choose the best Internet plan for you.

  • Price. Not all plans are created equal, and some providers will simply charge more for a comparable plan. Most plans offer unlimited data these days, but you could think about potentially saving on a limited data plan if you’re not a heavy Internet user.
  • Speed. Every provider has a different speeds for their plans. This tells you what speed you can expect when everyone is online in the evening, and is what you should be comparing between similar fibre plans.
  • Contract type. Month-to-month plans offer flexibility and let you switch providers on a whim, but some longer contract plans let you waive set-up fees or include a modem as part of the plan.
  • Extras. Do you need added Netflix, or are you interested in other entertainment bundles? Some providers will include extras that you can sign up for on their Internet plans.
  • Provider reviews. While reading reviews is important, be aware that some providers compensate people for writing positive reviews about them to improve their star ratings. Also, check whether negative reviews are related to issues with the provider or simply written by customers who are angry for other reasons.

How you can choose the best speed for your needs

The speed you get on your Internet plan will depend on which type of Internet you’ve gone for. We’ll take a look at what different speeds are offered by mobile and fibre connections, and whether you can choose a specific speed for your needs.

Fibre speeds

The Fibre Network for home broadband is capable of speeds up to 2Gbps, with most plans being up to 1Gbps.

Mobile broadband speeds

The speed of mobile broadband can be highly variable, depending on where you are, how clear the space between you and the mobile tower is, and what technology you’re using. Here’s an idea of typical speed ranges for each technology:

  • 3G: 2-10Mbps
  • 4G: 20-50Mbps
  • 5G: 100Mbps-1Gbps and up

How to find the best Internet plan

Step 1: Decide on the speed you need

This will be your biggest decision if you’re looking for a better broadband plan. The right speed for you will depend on two factors: how many people use your Internet, and what you do with it.

Step 2: Compare plans

Use the Broadband Plan Finder™ to compare plans.

Keep in mind: These special offers are often sign-up discounts for the first 6-12 months of your plan. If you’re not happy to pay the normal price of the plan, you’ll need to set a reminder to switch providers before the promotion ends.

Step 3: Double check your total

The monthly cost of an Internet plan is rarely the full amount you’ll end up paying. Always check the set-up fees and modem costs involved in your final order.

Step 4: Check your speeds after you’re connected

Once you’re connected, run a quick Internet speed test to see if it’s living up to its promised speeds. If not, you should be able to either get your provider to fix it or switch to another provider with no penalty.

Mobile broadband or home wireless broadband? Which one is best for you?

Mobile broadband and home wireless tap into the same technology: both of them transfer data using existing mobile data networks. The big difference between them is that mobile broadband devices tend to be highly portable, meaning you can take them just about anywhere.

Home wireless broadband usually relies upon heavier modems that need an external power source and thus aren’t very portable. In return, home wireless plans tend to have higher data limits and more consistent connections.

While they both use the same type of technology to function, the one that suits you best really depends on what you’re looking to get out of your Internet connection. If you need a highly portable solution so you can work out of the office or stream content on the go, you’ll probably be better off with a mobile broadband plan. Keep in mind that most mobile broadband plans won’t offer anything higher than 100GB so you may need to think twice if you’re planning to use it in a heavy capacity. Home wireless broadband, however, is more of an in-home solution. Because its modem is bulkier than mobile broadband modems, it’s best if you use home wireless broadband in a single location, rather than moving it around throughout the day.

It is always important to ensure that you compare your options and weigh up what broadband is best for you.
