Looking for an NBN12 Fibre plan? Choose iiNet!


Choosing an NBN™ plan can be confusing for many Australians. After being predominantly connected to ADSL broadband technologies for the better part of two decades, the rollout of the National Broadband Network introduces a range of new options which may not be familiar to the average user. For example, many Aussies are not familiar with the NBN™ plan tiers: NBN12 (Basic), NBN25 (Standard), NBN50 (Standard Plus) and NBN100 (Premium). To make matters worse, many of the bigger ISPs are no longer selling the cheaper NBN12 plans, which can make switching to the NBN™ seem like a much bigger jump in monthly expenses than it needs to be.

Fortunately, iiNet is a leading provider with a great range of NBN™ Fibre plans, including Basic NBN12 options. That means you can enjoy the value of an NBN12 plan without forgoing the confidence and peace of mind that comes with a larger, more experienced ISP. Together with our award-winning customer service, we make getting on the NBN™ easy for everyone, whether you’re a first-timer or just looking for a better experience with your NBN™ provider.

Read on to find out everything you need to know about iiNet’s entry level NBN™ Fibre (FTTB/N/C/P & HFC) plans.

Our value-packed Basic NBN™ plan


If you’re looking to connect to the NBN™ on a budget, check out our entry-level plan. For those of you who are already on iiNet’s Basic ADSL2+ plan, you’ll be pleased to learn that our NBN™ Basic plan is available at the same monthly price of $59.99. With a hearty 500GB of monthly data and an included NBN™ Phone service with Pay As You Go calls, this plan includes more than enough value to take care of your everyday internet needs.



Liimitless data with a Fetch Entertainment Bundle

nbn12plan2nbnentertainment bundleYou can still get more out of a Basic NBN™ connection without having to upgrade to NBN50 or NBN100. At $69.99 a month, our second NBN12 plan gives you UNLIMITED data, which is perfect for larger households or fans of streaming services such as Netflix or Stan which can use a lot of data (Netflix and Stan subscriptions required). If you get iiNet NBN™ on a 24-month contract, you’ll also have the option to take up our awesome Fetch Entertainment Bundle for an additional setup fee of just $59.99.

The Fetch Entertainment Bundle includes a 24-month Standard Fetch subscription plus heaps of great features for film and TV lovers alike. The sleek Fetch Mini set top box lets you access free-to-air, Catch-up TV and Netflix, Stan* and YouTube streaming apps in the comfort of your living room, plus 30 preselected movies each month at no additional cost. If you’re still looking for something to watch, you can rent or buy from over 8000 titles in the Fetch Store or add a premium channel pack to your subscription.

Easy to upgrade when it suits you

Once you’re settled in with the NBN™, you may find yourself using your internet connection more than before! Fortunately, all iiNet NBN™ plans come with our Fair Contract Guarantee, which means you can enjoy the benefits of a contract (such as a $0 activation fee) without being locked into the same plan. Whether you’re on a 24-month contract or a month-to-month plan, you’re free to upgrade your to another NBN™ plan in our current range. This kind of flexibility is especially handy if your new internet habits warrant the need for a faster connection with unlimited data.

  1. I am a disenchanted iiNet customer who had his contract downgraded coz iiNet could not guarantee the speed I had signed up for. Not only that I have been a customer for 14 years…so much for loyalty. Why all this blurb I strongly feel that I should have been offered fetch plus at the time without the setup costs. If I had been a new cust at that time Iwould have bee offered it free. It s time…..

      Hi Peter,

      Thanks for the comment! The attainable speeds over NBN Fibre to the Node are dictated by the cable length to the node itself. This is not something that we as a provider have any control over, much the same as any other provider. Our Fetch entertainment bundle for all customers new and old has a $59.99 setup fee, this covers things like the cost of the set top box and setup of the service internally.

      If you would like to chat about taking on a fetch service under the fetch entertainment offer through re-contracting your service, we’d be more than happy to arrange a call to help discuss. Please feel more than welcome to shoot us an email to with a usual time that’d be best to give you a call and we’ll make the arrangements.

    When can expect to be able to connect to NBN? I have already done a pre order

    • Leo Yarnold says:

      Hey David,

      Thanks for doing a pre-order with us! There are various factors that affect when NBN will have your area ready to go, but we’ll e-mail you as the time approaches, so there is literally nothing for you to do but sit back and relax.

  3. Nick says:

    I want fast day time speed for business use. What can iiNet offer me for guaranteed fast day time speed on a FTTN ?

  4. Kathy says:

    When will satellite be available in Wilsons Creek, 2482?

  5. Ian McAndrew says:

    I already have the NBN and it’s the worst thing ever to happen re communications. It’s slow and last month I kept track of the number of dropouts I had in my service, 44 in one month,that’s disgraceful. I haven’t recorded this month, I was so disgusted with last month, when I called for help to sort this out, the woman I was talking to tested the line and while she was doing that, it dropped out again, I thought she might call me back bot so far, nothing, that was days ago. Really terrible service. I have been with iiNet for donkeys years and this is the service I get?

    • Leo Yarnold says:

      Hi Ian,

      We absolutely can help with this, as we do expect better for your connection. Please get in touch with us directly, via with your details and mentioning your post here. We’ll gladly step in to help and set this right!

  6. JOHN says:

    The speed provided to us is a stated poor 25Mb AND IF YOU CAN GET 12/14 THAN YOU ARE DOING WELL. Generally in the late pm/evening we are lucky to get 2/3 Mb.

    Forget about Fetch and all the other trimmings normal subscribers receive, yet we pay the same monthly price!

    Fixed wireless is a ripoff!

    • Leo Yarnold says:

      Hey John,

      We want to speak to you about this, as we know that we can help. Fixed Wireless works well and we can do troubleshooting, with your co-operation, to identify just where the issues are and then take action to rectify them. Please get in touch with us directly, via with your details and mentioning your post here. We’ll gladly jump in to help!

  8. Roy Stanton says:

    NBN Website says 2020 for our dress. Final NBN Inspection done last week, they say 4 – 6 weeks FTTB (to the Basement? MDF?) so the copper will only be from 0 to 6 floors! What sort of speeds may be capable ? We have our strata AGM tonight, I’d like to inform or other owners/residents some with Telstra, some with TPG (same as iiNet I guess now) and some with iiNet (like me for the past decade or so) Any info would be greatly;y appreciated . Is there an advantage for iiNet to go to TPG or TPG to go with iiNet? And for those of us who don’t have Netflix Data counted.. I gather that means nothing now that we all have unlimited plans?

    • Josh McKenzie says:

      Hi Roy,

      Thanks for the comment! The typical speeds you’ll see to your specific apartment will be dependant on a few factors, like the length of the copper path from the MDF to the appartment (These don’t always travel directly from MDF to the apartment wall socket), the copper and any connection/joints age/quality. That being said, the copper component should be the only limitation on speed and quality of service. Advantages are things like our 24-hour award-winning customer support meaning should any issues ever arise, there’s always a support specialist ready to help get your service back up and running as quickly as possible. You are also correct, with the arrival of our liimitless plans, Freezone and quota-free Netflix is not something that’s really of a concern as there is no data limit to be concerned about with any other online content.

  9. Paul Riley says:

    What connection speed can I expect if I connect to HFC access infrastructure at the front of my property ?

    What NBN plan would iinet suggest for this type of connection ?

    • Josh McKenzie says:

      Hi Paul,

      Thanks for the query! NBN HFC has a fibre component, meaning that speeds shouldn’t be affected by distance to its respective node, meaning your plan choice is completely dependant on what you’re hoping to use your service for. If your home’s pretty data hungry through either streaming or game downloads over multiple devices, we’d perhaps recommend the NBN100 plan or NBN50. If the household doesn’t use a lot of data and you’re just in need of a connection to check some emails and general browsing, NBN12 will be perfect. Either way, if your needs change or you feel you need a little extra speed, you’re always able to upgrade or downgrade. Even if you take on a new contract, you’re perfectly okay to upgrade your plan or downgrade without affecting the contract. We completely understand that needs change over time and we’re more than happy to accommodate that either way.

    Just waiting for mine. I’ve been happy with my service so far, hope it continues when NBN comes to my door.

    • Josh McKenzie says:

      Hi Diane,

      Thanks for the comment! We’ll be sure to do our very best while getting your new NBN service up and running. Please don’t hesitate to let us know how you go and if there’s anything that we can help out with, please don’t be afraid to give us a shout. We’re always keen to lend a hand where-ever we can.

  11. Carson says:

    NBN is available in my area but I am reluctant to join because the plans are confusing and worried that the performance will be worse. Can you tell me if the NBN Basic plan $59.99 will operate at equivalent speeds or better of ADSL2+. Can I downgrade to a lower plan if the NBN50 is not right for me

    • Josh McKenzie says:

      Hi Carson,

      Thanks for getting in touch! We’re stoked to hear that NBN’s available in your area but can certainly understand your apprehension. NBN12 plans are most in line with ADSL2+ speed averages, though if your currently close to your exchange, it may be that your ADSL service is able to achieve higher speeds. This being said, upgrading and downgrading are made very easy whether you elect to go under contract or not. In my experience, if you’re considering the NBN12 plans, it’s best to start there. This way, while you’re finding whether the plan works for you, you’re keeping more money in your pocket. If you find that your household needs a little more speed to share between devices, upgrading is simple through either our toolbox service or the team would love to hear from you and lend a hand with a plan chance, no re-contracting or contract changes required.

  13. Jeremy says:

    I am living in Surfers Paradise, but I live in a high rise.

    Is there any way of knowing what type of speeds we can achieve, id like to know this prior to switching from mobile broadband

    • Leo Yarnold says:

      Hi Jeremy,

      Speeds are always variable and they do depend on the connection type available to you. There is simply no way of accurately knowing what connection speeds you’d have until you’re actually connected. We’d suggest entering your address into the page here:

      Given that you live in a high-rise, you’d likely have NBN FTTB (Fibre To The Basement) so the limiting factor will be the quality of the cabling between the basement and the first socket.
