Cheap fibre plans
You don't have to spend heaps on your broadband.
With high-speed Internet a necessity these days, shopping around for broadband deals is more important than ever. If you’re after a low-cost broadband plan, we’ve gathered up a wide range of plans that will cost you less than $50 a month, with some even lower than $30 a month:
Of course, cheap broadband plans don’t come without a few caveats you’ll want to be aware of, such as:
When it comes to the internet. many cheaper broadband plans sacrifice Internet speed in order to cut costs, which might be fine if you’re only interested in some light web browsing and watching the odd YouTube video. However, should you want to stream Netflix in HD, that cheap connection probably won’t cut it. Instead, you should aim for a higher speed to ensure you won’t be stuck waiting for the latest episode of Rick and Morty to load.
Broadband Data caps
In cutting costs, many broadband providers also cut monthly download limits quite significantly. Limits of 50GB a month are common, and though this can be sufficient for general web browsing, it’s a little less suitable if you plan on streaming video or downloading movies or games. Streaming two hours of HD Netflix a day would blow through 50GB in just over a week, and that’s not counting all the videos you watch on Facebook or the image galleries you flip through on news sites.
That said, in this price range you won’t see too many plans offering both a roomy data cap and a speedy connection, so you’ll need to weigh up which of the two is more important to you.
Beyond the monthly bill, you’ll want to check that any prospective broadband plan isn’t hiding a bunch of additional costs in its contract. Activation fees, installation charges and mandatory equipment purchases can quickly turn a $50 plan into a $300 buy-in, so be sure to read the fine print in a plan’s Summary before signing up.
