Speed is how fast data (the content you download and upload) travels between the internet and your devices.
Your speed will be affected by factors including the technology over which services are delivered to your premises, how your provider configures their network and manages traffic (particularly during peak periods when more people are online), the nbn™ powered plan you choose, the performance of your modem, Wi-Fi, cabling, and other devices in your home.
Talk to your phone and internet provider about the speed tiers available in your area. You should also talk to them about the actual speeds you can expect to experience when you switch to an nbn™ powered plan – particularly during peak times like the evening.
nbn offers a choice of fast wholesale speed tiers to phone and internet providers, who then turn these into different nbn™ powered plans that you can purchase. Please note, not all fast speed tiers are available everywhere.*
100Mbps is our fastest wholesale broadband speed tier, designed for lots of people actively online at the same time. It’s great for 4K streaming, and downloading and uploading large files.
50Mbps is perfect if you have multiple users who like to stream videos, play online games or work from home.
25Mbps is ideal for small households that use the internet for everyday browsing.
There's also 12Mbps, which is suitable for households with basic phone or internet usage. It may be similar to what many people currently experience on ADSL2.
*Your experience, including the speeds actually achieved over the nbn™ broadband access network, depends on the technology over which services are delivered to your premises and some factors outside our control (like your equipment quality, software, signal quality, broadband plans and how your service provider designs its network). nbn is a provider of wholesale speeds to internet providers. nbn™ wholesale speed tiers available to your internet provider vary depending on the access technology in your area.
