MyOwn Tel NBN Plans
About MyOwn Tel
This 100% Australian owned and operated company has been providing broadband connections across the country for 15 years, with specialised community networks using their NBN and other internet connection types. The Brisbane-based provider offers customer support Monday-Saturday, and unlimited data across all its plans.
MyOwn Tel’s NBN offerings come in four speed-tiers with corresponding prices and different activation fees for varied contract types. You can choose to go on a month-to-month contract, but you’ll have to pay a one-off $99 activation fee. Then, 12-month contracts come with a reduced $49 activation fee and 24-month options are fee-free.
There are a few other fees to be aware of when signing up with MyOwn tel. If you’re on a contract and cancel your plan, you’ll have to pay an early termination fee of $20 per-month for however many months are remaining on your contract. And if your home doesn’t have the necessary infrastructure set-up for NBN installation, you could be looking at a subsequent installation fee of $299.
You are free to use your own WiFi modem (if you’ve already got one), but you’ll be responsible for ensuring it’s NBN compatible and setting it up with your MyOwn Tel plan. Otherwise, you can get in touch with MyOwn Tel and they can advise you on what equipment might be best suited for your plan and the pricing.
MyOwnTel Award-winning NBN plan
- 225Mbps typical evening speed
- $99 per-month for the first 6 months ($120 thereafter)
- Suitable for 4k and 8k video
The Emerald plan is the highest NBN speed tier offered by MyOwn Tel, and the lightning-fast plan took home a Mozo Experts Choice NBN Award in the Super Fast (NBN 250) category. For the first six months you’ll be able to access the 225Mbp typical evening speed and unlimited data for $99 each month, but this will revert to the standard price of $120 per-month after that time. You should be able to do 8k video streaming and online gaming with this plan, as well as all your usual browsing for larger households with up to 20 devices connected at any one time. Make sure you’re aware of the potential fees and modem set-up processes as mentioned above.
