Is the nbn faster than ADSL2+?

Quick answer

amaysim nbn plans have the potential to be faster than most ADSL2+ connections, with the maximum download speed of our Premium Speed plan reaching up to 100/Mbps.

With ADSL2+, although download speeds can reach up to 24/Mbps, speeds generally get slower the further you live from an exchange, so it’s very much dependent on your location.

nbn vs ADSL2+

The nbn™ network uses a modern architecture designed specifically for the high speed transfer of internet traffic and amaysim nbn plans have the potential to be faster than most ADSL2+ connections, with the maximum download speed of our Premium Speed plan rreaching up to 100/Mbps. The nbn is also able to deliver a higher capacity, meaning multiple devices can connect at the same time and deliver better results.

While ADSL2+ has a maximum download speed of 24/Mbps, most users have much slower connections, as they rely heavily on how close they’re located to an exchange. This is because the copper cabling is not designed to carry large amounts of data, as the infrastructure was originally intended for nothing more than telephone calls.

Note: The exact speeds you’re able to obtain with your amaysim plan will vary due to a number of factors including hardware, the type of content you’re trying to access, as well as your selected plan.
