Whether you're looking at Telstra for your ADSL, NBN, cable, or even wireless internet, we've handpicked a couple of great deals. 

It's worth noting that Telstra's fixed line broadband pricing is identical across ADSL, Cable, and NBN. No matter what technology type you're using to connect, you'll pay the same. Well, unless you're tacking on NBN or Cable exclusive functionality like a speed pack. 

If you'd prefer to find yourself a deal, check out the rest of Telstra's plans, here.

Best basics


If you just want to get online, your best bet from Telstra is an $80 per month online only offer that gets you 500GB of data.

This plan doesn't include calls, so if you want to keep using your landline, you'll be charged at pay-as-you-go rates.

Best home wireless / mobile broadband 


If you want a hefty amount of mobile data on Telstra, you'll need to part with a pretty penny. That being said, $150 per month currently gets you 50GB of data and a bonus 30GB, for a total of 80GB per month. It's not cheap, but at the least, it's flexible. 

If you're actually hoping to replace a fixed line connection with 4G, 80GB might be a touch tight, but should lost you unless you're streaming every single night of the week.

You can either get this plan on a 12- or 24-month contract. If you opt for the 24-month contract, you'll get a Netgear Nighthawk M1 portable modem for no extra cost. If you go for 12-months, you'll only get the SIM.
