picking your nbn™ internet speed

3 nbn speeds

how fast is the nbn? that's up to you.

When you switch to the nbn, you'll get to choose your nbn internet speed. Consider the following factors if you're struggling to pick the best nbn plan for you.

how many people use your internet?

Every device puts extra burden on your internet connection, especially when used at the same time. A faster plan will cope better under the load of a large family or share house.

are you streaming, downloading and uploading?

Sounds like a job for high-speed internet. You should opt for a faster nbn plan to support activity like 4K video viewing.

do you live in a busy neighbourhood?

The nbn can suffer from congestion from time to time. A higher speed means less buffering hell during peak hour, so inner city dwellers may prefer a faster plan.

do you even game, bro?

Video games don’t make people violent. Lag does. If you use your computer for serious gaming, you’ll want the best and fastest nbn plan you can get.

ready to pick your plan?

Once you've settled on a speed, sign up to an amaysim nbn plan in as little as two steps.

What is the nbn?

Quick answer

There’s a growing need in Australia for a high-speed broadband network to meet our demands for fast and reliable internet access.

The National Broadband Network (nbn for short) is an upgrade to Australia’s existing broadband network designed specifically for the high-speed transfer of internet traffic.

As the national rollout of the nbn speeds up, many parts of Australia’s existing broadband network will be switched off to make way for the new one. To make the most of the superfast speeds of the nbn, you’ll have to switch to a nbn-ready plan before the old internet is switched off in your area.

Will the nbn actually make my internet faster?

Quick answer

In most cases, the nbn will provide faster speeds than existing broadband networks in Australia (#winning!).

If you’re currently using a cable broadband service, the speed of your amaysim nbn plan may be similar to what you’re already getting, but since nbn technology relies less on your home’s proximity to an exchange to deliver fast internet, you should enjoy a speedier and more reliable internet connection

How fast is the nbn compared to normal broadband?

Quick answer

Awesome news – the nbn can be faster than most regular broadband connections. ADSL2+ download speeds can reach up to 24/Mbps, but that tends to get slower the further you live from an exchange. The nbn has the potential to reach up to 100/Mbps (hint hint, that’s superfast) and support multiple devices connected at the same time.

With most ADSL2+ connections downloading at an average of 6/Mbps, it means the speed of your amaysim nbn plan (regardless of the speed you choose) should be noticeably faster.

How do I choose an nbn provider?

Quick answer

Choosing an nbn provider for your home means finding a great value plan that suits your household’s usage needs and budget the best.

It’s important to take into account what you frequently use the internet for. For instance, if you like to stream videos in Ultra HD, or constantly have multiple devices connected at the same time, you may need to think about choosing a plan with unlimited data on one of the higher speed options
