The NBN 250 and NBN 1000 subscriptions have existed for almost two years. In that time, they have gone from being a niche option for the most discerning internet users to virtually any telco. They grow up so fast. Evening speeds have improved dramatically and are available to even more households.

While NBN 250 and NBN 1000 plans are still limited to FTTP and HFC addresses, essentially anyone with these technology types should be able to get a super-fast plan if they want to. NBN 250 plans are available for all FTTP and HFC addresses, and NBN 1000 plans are available for all FTTP addresses and more than 95 percent of HFC addresses.

So if you want to get the most out of your internet connection, let’s look at the best NBN 250 and NBN 1000 plans.

The best NBN 1000 subscriptions

If you’re looking for pure value, MyRepublic has one of the cheapest NBN 1000 plans. You pay just $99 monthly for the first six months and $109 afterward. Even at full price, that’s cheaper than many NBN 250 subscriptions. MyRepublic reports typical evening speeds of 350 Mbps, which is a nice step up from the standard 200 Mbps to 250 Mbps you see with most plans.

Southern Phone will charge $105 monthly for the next six months and then $135 monthly. The provider has yet to disclose the typical evening speeds for its NBN 1000 subscriptions, as it does not yet have enough data for the speed level. This makes it difficult to know what to expect regarding peak times.

TPG is slightly more expensive at $114.99 per month for the first six months but then jumps to $144.99 monthly after your discount period expires. TPG reports typical evening speeds of $250 Mbps.

Exetel is also worth considering, with its subscription billed at $119.95 per month for the first six months and $139.95 monthly after that. The only catch with this plan is that you are limited to a maximum speed of 500 Mbps. Exetel reports typical evening speeds of 245Mbps.

If you’re looking for the fastest NBN 1000 subscriptions, Superloop, Aussie Broadband, and Origin are your top three picks.

Superloop reports typical evening speeds of 500 Mbps. It will charge you $119.95 monthly for the first six months and $139.95 monthly after that. However, you are subject to a 3 TB fee. Once you reach this limit, you are limited to speeds of 100 Mbps.

Aussie Broadband is even faster, with typical evening speeds of 600 Mbps. It’s more expensive, but bills $149 per month.

Origin also reports typical evening speeds of 600Mbps, and you’ll pay $154 monthly. However, bundling it with a power plan can save $10 a month.

MyRepublic is again one of the cheapest choices if you’re looking for fast NBN. You pay $89 monthly for the NBN 250 subscriptions and then $99 monthly.

MATE’s NBN plan is worth considering, where you pay $99 monthly. You can also save an additional $10 monthly by bundling a MATE SIM-only plan. These cost $20 per month with 10 GB and are powered by the Telstra network. The promo code MAY 100 will get you a $100 credit, essentially getting your first month free. This offer runs until the end of May.

If you’re looking for the fastest NBN 250 plans, Aussie Broadband is a good choice, with typical evening speeds of 245 Mbps. You pay $129 per month.

Origin also reports typical evening speeds of 245 Mbps but charges $134 monthly. However, you can save €10 per month by bundling energy.

Telstra is the only major provider with the best Aussie Broadband and Origin, with typical evening speeds of 250 Mbps. You pay $31 per your first month and $140 monthly afterward. If you leave within the first two years, you must return your modem to Telstra or be charged a non-return fee.

The best NBN 100 subscriptions

Of course, many of us cannot get a subscription faster than NBN 100. That’s why we’ll also look at some of the best NBN 100 deals.

The first is MyRepublic. MyRepublic reports typmonthlyening speeds of 93Mbps. You’re looking at $69 a month for your first six months and $79 monthly after that. Even at full price, that’s cheaper than many other NBN 100 plans.

If you want higher typical evening speeds, you can opt for SpinTel. You pay $69 for the first six months and $84.95 per month after that. SpinTel reports typical evening speeds of 100Mbps, making it ostensibly congestion-free.

Finally, MATE is also worth thinking about thanks to protentional bundling. These are powered by the Telstra network and start at $20 per month with 10 GB. Normally, you’d pay $79 monthly for its NBN 100 plan, but you’ll reduce this to $69 monthly if you add one of its SIM-only plans. You can currently score $100 in credit using the promo code MAY 100, which will make your first month free and leave you with a little to spare for the next. This offer runs until the end of May.
