Are you a serial downloader? Do you often stream videos in HD? Or are you just tired of your internet lagging in the evenings?

The 2023 Mozo Experts Choice Awards for Fast NBN^ can help you narrow down your search for a new Fast NBN plan!

This year, the Mozo experts assessed 76 NBN broadband retailers to find the best plans.

When we refer to “Fast NBN,” we mean plans with a speed of 100Mbps and above. In this year’s Mozo Expert’s Choice Awards, there were four categories that assessed “Fast NBN” plans. These categories were, Fast Broadband (NBN100), Super Fast Broadband (NBN250), Ultra Fast Broadband (NBN500) and Ultra Fast Broadband (NBN1000).

So, if you’re wanting to upgrade to a faster NBN connection, the award winners mentioned below might be worth your attention.

What is Fast and Ultra Fast NBN?

For those unfamiliar with the terminology around broadband, here’s a quick explanation.

The 100, 250, 500 and 1000 refer to the number of Mbps (megabits per second) that the plan offers in terms of download/upload speed. The higher the number, the faster your speed will be. For example, the most basic NBN plans offer 25Mbps download speeds.

(Note that NBN500 and NBN1000 plans are not very common because you need to have FTTP (fibre to the premises connection) to access these speeds. If you’re curious, you can check if your address has it.)
