expired Aussie Broadband NBN - One Month Free Trial and Double Data for 6 Months (on-net POI areas) with No Contract

2250
wpfreetrial

Update 7/7/17: Aussie Broadband have given OzBargain users a separate promo code - ozbargain. Expired, use wpfreetrial

Since Skymesh reduced the bandwidth of their CVCs to save money, I switched to Aussie Broadband. They have built their own network using dedicated Telstra links and ensure there is enough CVC bandwidth ensuring full speeds at all times.

If there isn't enough bandwidth available, then you won't be able to sign up until more bandwidth is available.

    looks good. although the checking address wheel has been spinning for 4mins before erroring.

    looking at pricing I'll be staying with Optus cable as long as I can, it's a much better deal.

    AussieBB are absolute pearlers to do business with.

    Shifted from Skymesh as they didn't support NBN FW.

    Had used AussieBB previously on satellite till they sold their satellite customers to Skymesh a few years back.

    Another bonus is the free months data if you refer a friend to a new connection <G>

    AussieBB reps are active on Whirlpool, giving prompt support and updates.

      Nice! I'll probably choose them when NBN hits here.

      Getting sick of iinet after the TPG takeover.

        I was with internode/iinet before ABB and their congestion was horrendous. Internode's NBN was slower than their ADSL at peak times. Now with ABB NBN I haven't had any congestion issues at all. Highly recommend them.

      Definitely! Switched over from internode (was shit with their money grabbing tactics like forcing you to buy their own router for NBN when there is no technical reason to!) and can't recommend these guys enough! Averages 95/39 Mbps even during peak hours! Best of all I can use my existing router with no issues!

    Although I have pointed people in the direction of this offer before, I have held back on submitting it as a deal because it's specifically for whirlpool users.

    Maybe it would be better to prompt Aussie Broadband to provide an OzBargain specific offer & code?

    Paging Phil Britt maybe?

    I would have done $65 for 1000gb but 500gb just aint enough

    In 2017, still limited data on broadband.

      You'll find most of the companies who don't offer unlimited data have the best performance. Also investing in their own POI's is a big bonus, means you should always have bandwidth available and won't encounter peak slow downs like a fair number of NBN connections experience - depending on your type of connection anyway.

      It's actually a good thing. Unlimited/unmetered tends to equal congestion.

      • +1 vote

        It doesn't have to. I'm in New Zealand with a 1000/500 (Mb/s) unlimited fibre connection and never notice slowdowns at any time of the day, and I do around 5TB per month. There's a company over here that monitors each provider and you can easily see if any of them are underprovisioning http://truenet.nz/story/2017/06/may-2017-urban-broadband-rep...

        The price: NZ$95 per month - although it's more expensive in other parts of the country (around $130 per month)

      Because of the model that the NBN uses. Unlimited plans on the NBN equals guaranteed congestion.

      yeah I don't understand, TPG unlimited always gives me 24.5/4.5 so how can telco's argue people are better off on a metered connection?

          @daveee: dude, its affected by various facotrs, but generally they are behind the wall, if you browse domestic websites which most of chinese do, its pretty impressive, Baidu.com QQ.com taobao.com JD.com are all good. not to mention the P@rn downloading, they have 115.com which stream everthing you want to. Ever used internet in China? you should fire the quetion as ever used chinses internet to brwose FB or INS

          @JackyQ: Speedtest or it didn't happen.

          @daveee: They don't have the Internet in China, it is more of an Intranet or a sub-Internet. Some call it the Chinanet, but to me it is more surreal, it is like some kind of experimental Great Virtual Environment.

          Most of the traffic is overloaded routers dealing with unanswered connection requests, beacons, Denial of service and botnet traffic. The other half is a variety of promiscuous traffic, refused update requests, media streams and social bilge. All it's good for is public messaging, sharing audio and video, and opening your habits, thoughts and data to the regime, gangster gangs and anyone else that wants to watch.

          Unless you count making your private info public and eCommerce via payment methods only slightly better than plain text of some value.

          How they make things like the great fire cannon function on a net like that amazes me, but I guess such things are a natural result of being contained inside the GVE for too long.

        Just because you today experience this does not mean that others do and the time will come when your connection will turn into an unusable POS.

        It is impossible for TPG to offer an unlimited connection for the price they charge for a 25/5 connection let alone faster. The NBN pricing is well known so you can do the maths.

      • +12 votes

        It is a POI by POI situation. You might be on a POI where TPG has purchased enough CVC capacity from NBN. My POI it is certainly not the case. People drop from 90/38 down to 15/38 during peak periods. Uploads are generally always stable, but downloads completely crap out. So, yes for YOU your experience is awesome. For other customers maybe not. Its a bit like me living in the country and telling people who live in Melbourne that my drive to work was fine so they shouldn't experience congestion during peak periods either.

      Unfortunately, the way the NBN has been set up, RSPs that don't have data limits end up really bad. Its shit, its true. But just the way it works. Better to have limits than congestion

    Switched from Internode to AussieBB back in February, and my area went 'on-net' in April - was a bit underwhelming the first couple of weeks, then apparently the kinks got worked out and it's been stellar ever since.

    Been with these guy for over 10 years (westvic broadband before the merge with wideband) can't say enough good things about them. Had a few issues here and there along the way but have been handled pretty good.

    No overseas staff at all, which is nice these days. I would call them the new internode for new customers but they are expanding at a very fast rate right now and I hope they don't over work themselves.

    edit: Just beware these guys only allow 80% capacity on their POI so if you sign up and get rejected that could be why, it's to stop overselling etc.

    We reserve the right to limit the number of simultaneous free trials per POI, basically so if this goes viral, we don’t go broke providing too much free bandwidth.

    Yep and you just ozbargained it

      Thanks to the ACCC screwing us there are 121 POIs so it's not a problem. And unless you're on FTTP it would be pretty stupid to sign up for one month to use it free.

    Man, being very new to FTTN and NBN, I signed up my work internet to sky mesh…so disappointed to hear about there CVC reduction. ITs why I chose sky mesh!

    •  

      Yeah, very disappointing. They sold to a UK provider middle of last year and Paul Rees (owner) left a couple of months ago (officially on 30 June though). It seems they've made some difficult commercial decisions to the detriment of customers who appreciated the premium service.

      •  

        Oh wow.. man I wish I'd know about this sooner. Literally today is the NBN install! But at least there's no contract so I can move anytime

      •  

        So that is what happened to Paul. He was great at helping me setup an account and I wondered where he disappeared from the forums. I am with Skymesh so far and haven't noticed any disasters in speeds lately (Fingers crossed) but shall keep AussieBB in mind.

    •  

      I switched from Skymesh to Aussie. Sykmesh used to be the best premium RSP, but doesn't seem to be anymore

      • +2 votes

        When I was looking around I talked to Skymesh and Aussie. Skymesh, even in what was sales, had poor customer service. Aussie sounded more human, so I went with them. There was prime time congestion at the start, but once they built out their own network and got rid of Optus, quality went up. During the same time Skymesh has got worse.

        Today I wouldn't even bother to phone Skymesh.

  •  

    I was so looking forward to move to AussieBB when my area gets connected because of the good reputation…then other household users needed a landline phone -_-… Stuck with TPG in the future

    •  

      Aussie has VOIP also. Traditional landline will be phased out 18mths after your are becomes RFS

    Thanks all – we're aware of it. Just figuring out what to do with it!

    They are saying I can get NBN from the neighboring suburb even though I'm out of the suburb's area on the rollup map by 1-2km…

  •  

    I've been using Aussie on FTTP for maybe 4-5 months, and the service was pretty mediocre when it was using Optus POI. But since they swapped to their own POI, its been very good. 90+ mb down during peak times, and very solid overseas speeds.

    Probably the best RSP for the price at the moment, but that might change if their customer numbers increase a lot.

    Signed up a week or so ago and have to say, just awesome. Was connected today in about 30 mins after getting the message. No tricky modem settings and full speed. On a 50/20 plan and getting 45/18. Great ping time for gaming as well.

    Last provider I was with on a 100/40 plan got me 36/12 at best in the middle of the night. Blamed my modem and line to the node. Node is about 200m away and I'm using the same modem. What took them 2 weeks took Aussie about 30 mins to get sorted.

    Just wish I could upvote them some more…

    Does it apply to existing customer?

      Doesn't look like it alas. Thinking about emailing them to ask if they can offer anything for us at all
