Kogan has just entered the NBN game, y’all. Starting from today, the online retailer is offering three different plans at three different speeds. Here’s what they look like.
Bronze Unlimited: $58.90 per month (hence the ‘less than $2 per day angle they’re pushing) for unlimited data on NBN 12. This is the slowest of the speeds and is really only worth it for one connected device. On this plan you’ll experience a maximum connection speed of 12Mbps download and 1Mbps upload.
Silver Unlimited: Until June 30 Kogan is offering a $58.90 per month ‘launch price’ that will last for the first 24 months. The usual price is $68.90. This plan will get you unlimited data on NBN 50 and is recommended for 2 – 4 connected devices. You’ll be getting a maximum of 50Mbps download and 20Mbps upload speeds.
Gold Unlimited: $88.90 per month for unlimited data using NBN 100. This is the fastest plan and is designed for 4+ connected devices, with a maximum of 100Mbps download and 40Mbps upload.
An important detail here is that you can’t bring your own modem to the party. All plans incur a $69 upfront, obligatory modem charge. So make sure you factor that into your decision making. On the plus side, you can cancel the plan at anytime without penalty.
Kogan also aren’t being shy about actively trying to challenge powerhouse Australian telcos stating that they want Australians to understand that their current service providers may not continue to have the best value service.
“For far too long Australians have had to put up with incumbent ISP’s who are more interested in maintaining the status quo than delivering better broadband. We believe more competition is always better for Australian broadband consumers and are proud to support it,” said Matthew Lobb, General Manager Fixed Broadband at Vodafone Australia.
“Following the success of Kogan Mobile in providing more competitive and affordable mobile phone plans, we are excited to expand our partnership to launch Kogan nbn™.”
