Expert picks: Mozo Experts Choice Award-winning best NBN plans

To determine the winners of the 2021 Mozo Experts Choice NBN Awards, our Mozo Expert Research Team analysed and compared broadband plans from over 100 retailers against different factors, including download speeds, data limits and pricing.

Our Mozo Experts then picked the winners and divided them into several awards categories to reflect broadband speeds to suit different types of users. 

Whether you’re a creative who needs excellent upload and download speeds for smooth workflow or a Netflix junkie on the lookout for the next great show to stream, here is a roundup of some of the best NBN plans in Australia as per the 2021 Mozo Experts Choice Awards:
