Which NBN speed will suit my household?

Households can choose between 6 NBN speed tiers, though availability might depend on your location.

On Finder, the most popular speed is NBN 50. It's good for a 2–3 person household or moderate to heavy internet users.

1 person icon

1–2 people

NBN 12 would suit a single-person household with limited internet needs for basic browsing. NBN 25 is good for light to moderate users, web browsing and 1–2 HD video streams.

2 user icon

2–3 people

NBN 50 is a good option for medium-sized households or moderate to heavy internet users. You can stream multiple HD videos, take video calls and play online games.

4 user icon

4+ people

NBN 100 would suit larger households with 4 or more people or heavy internet users. Apart from the basics, you can also stream 4K videos and download large files.

Speedometer icon
Did you know?
Finder's Consumer Sentiment Tracker found that more Australians are satisfied with an NBN 100 plan compared to any other NBN speed tier in Australia. It's fairly easy to switch between speed tiers with the same provider. As long as you're on a no-lock-in contract, you could always start on a plan and upgrade or downgrade in speed as you see fit.

Who are the fastest NBN providers in Australia?

Top 3 fastest NBN providers bar graph showing Launtel, Exetel and Optus

The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission's (ACCC) Broadband Performance report, released every quarter, highlights the reliability of the top 12 NBN providers in Australia.

This report tells you how reliable the providers are in relation to the speeds they advertise.

For April 2023, the top 3 fastest providers were Launtel, Exetel and Optus. Launtel and Exetel achieved peak hour speeds over 100% of the time.

This means the speeds customers were getting on their NBN plans during the hours of 7pm–11pm were the same as the speeds advertised on their plans.

Overall, the results from April were a very slight improvement compared to the last report in December. Average download performance increased to 98.3% of plan speed during busy hours, compared to 98.2% in December.

What are the different types of NBN connections?

Every house will have its own NBN connection type, which will determine the types of plans and speeds it will have access to.

Basically, the more fibre optic cable that is part of your home's technology type, the faster the NBN speed you should be able to access.


FTTP (Fibre to the Premises) is the fastest and arguably the best NBN connection type available. Your home will be directly connected to the closest NBN node via a fibre optic cable.
Many houses icon

FTTN (Fibre to the Node) is the slowest fixed connection type available and uses existing copper wiring to connect to an NBN node in your neighbourhood.

FTTB (Fibre to the Building) is primarily available to apartment dwellers. Fibre optic cables run to the basement of the building, with copper wiring connecting each unit.
Fibre to the Curb icon

FTTC (Fibre to the Curb) is similar to FTTN as it uses the same copper cable network. Fibre optic cables are run to a node in a telecom pit on the street outside your home.
Hybrid Fibre Coaxial icon

HFC (Hybrid Fibre Coaxial) is similar to FTTN except coaxial cables make up the distance to the node instead of a copper wire, meaning you can access greater speeds.
Fixed wireless icon
Fixed wireless

Fixed wireless uses an antenna installed on your roof to exchange signals with a nearby signal tower. Speeds are capped at around 50Mbps but can fluctuate.
Satellite NBN icon
Satellite NBN

Satellite NBN (also known as Sky Muster) is used primarily in rural or regional Australia. Speeds are capped at 25Mbps and more prone to interference.

You can find your home's NBN connection type through Finder's NBN tracker.

How much should I be paying for NBN?

NBN costs will vary depending on which speed category your plan is on. We crunched the numbers from 53 NBN providers to find out what your average NBN bill will be each month, depending on the speed tier you choose.

Speed tierAverage
NBN 12$64.26
NBN 25$78.87
NBN 50$76.06
NBN 100$89.70
NBN 250$115.71
NBN 1000$143.29

Prices were calculated including the promotional discounts on plans. Both NBN 100/20 and 100/40 plans were included in the monthly average for NBN 100 plans.

Which NBN provider should I choose?

There are a handful of providers that make up the majority of the market. While you may trust them because of familiarity, it doesn't always make them better. Smaller providers will usually have more competitive prices but they might ditch extra features on their plans to keep costs down.

The following are the 3 largest NBN providers in Australia:

telstra logo

Telstra's NBN plans are priced at a premium compared to others, but you also get access to a bunch of perks like free streaming trials and a rewards program.

tpg logo

TPG's NBN plans are pretty lean on extra features, but if you're more comfortable going with a bigger brand, its prices are a lot more digestible.

Optus logo

Optus offers loads of options for entertainment extras. It's known for its reliable speeds thanks to its results in the ACCC Broadband Performance Report.

Other popular NBN providers on Finder include the following:

iinet logo

Part of the TPG group, iiNet's NBN plans are straightforward but with the added bonus of free Fetch entertainment for 24 months on selected plans.

Dodo logo

Dodo has been around since the days of ADSL but its NBN plans are decent too, with discounts for customers who bundle internet with Dodo energy.

iPrimus logo

Under the same Vocus Group umbrella with Dodo, iPrimus has NBN plans that come with the option to tack on Fetch entertainment for an additional cost.

aussie broadband logo

Known for its award-winning customer service, Aussie Broadband also offers customisable speeds to suit every customer from casual browsers to online gaming fiends.

Exetel logo

Exetel doesn't mess around when it comes to speed, landing at the top of the list 3 out of 4 times in the 2022 ACCC Broadband Performance Reports.

tangerine logo

Take Tangerine for a spin on a 14-day trial. Its affordable plans won't break the bank, with introductory 6-month discounts for all new customers.

      Hi Allan,

      Thanks for your question. Sorry to hear about your current situation with your NBN provider. While we review NBN in our pages, it’s helpful to know that we neither work with them or answer for their company. It would be best to contact the customer service support of NBN directly for further assistance.

      Hope this clarifies and we hope they find a quick resolution for you!

      With care,

      Hi Michael,

      Thanks for getting in touch! I understand you want to get the full disclosure of NBN costs. Kindly note that while we have a review and comparison page for NBN providers, we don’t work with them directly. It would be best to reach out to your chosen NBN provider to check the net costs of using their service.

      Hope this helps and feel free to reach out to us again for further assistance.

      Hi Ian,

      Thanks for contacting Finder.

      In that case, you’ll need to contact the representative who installed your NBN connection. You may also directly reach out to NBN so they can refer you to an agent.

      Hope this helps.
