    Is this just an offer for "you" or can we all use it? I'm ready to jump from Mungi onto the 100mbps plan.

    • +3 votes

      No idea, my area allocation is exhausted at the moment so I can't sign up but I did check to make sure the code works. Also with Mungi but 50/20, thinking if I should jump ship..

      • +10 votes

        Also jumping ship since Mungi took away 100/40

        •  

          Just jumped ship from Mungi to the $79 Vodafone NBN 100/40 unlimited (ongoing rate) with 4G backup (Existing Vodafone customer pricing). So far it's performing at 88Mbps to 94Mbps (including peak), but this deal looks great with Aussie BB too (for the first 6 months).

      •  

        My area is also on stop sell until September.

        I presigned with them and they'll offer the $20 discount from when my connection goes live with them.

      •  

        Yep… just jumped. hopefully speedy switch

      I've signed up anyways, my node is currently at 80% capacity but I should be able to roll over in September, hopefully.

    Great deal. Already a customer otherwise I'd be all over this.

    Scroll down for complaints about existing customers missing out.

  •  

    Really happy with mungi so far. What is their prices after 6 months though?

    •  

      I would think it'll be back to normal @ $79/mth for 50/20.. but they wont stop you from switching providers. I'm a mixed bag with Mungi but I've only been with them for a week.

      • +1 vote

        I came from telecube and much happier. Everyone always talks up Aussie so interested to know if it’s worth the switch.

        Maybe a networking expert would be kind enough to donate some of their time to provide a visual breakdown of who runs more peers and better domestic and international connectivity.

      How do you feel about Mungi dropping their 100mb option?

    • +1 vote

      Normal pricing for 50/20 unlimited is $79/month and 100/40 unlimited is $99/month. So it's a $20 saving for 6 months ie $120 discount.

      Note that ABB don't do lock-in contracts, so you can probably port away when the promotional price ends with no issues.

  •  

    I expect to have NBN by Xmas. Can I sign up to this offer now?

    • +2 votes

      there's a "Don't connect before" box before you check out, just put your date in there.

    • +9 votes

      There is an option to provide when to connect with aussie bb.
      However, personally, I would recommend to wait as these offers are not rare and you will have something similar or better.

  • +8 votes

    So I signed up and since then (like 1 month) there have been about a dozen better signup offers… super annoying.

    • +8 votes

      And the $10 off a month one is still running! https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/388970

      I ended up cancelling my pre order with them and going with Mungi instead, no contract on either so if Mungi are no good I can always change to someone else.

      Best way to p*** off potential new customers is running different promos at the same time for different amounts and not allowing people to change over if they're not even connected yet.

        Aussie BB has been doing this recently. It feels as if their marketing team has been pumped up with energy drinks and going in a promotion spree.

        •  

          I actually called and asked to switch to another offer that they had emailed me on the day I signed up.

          The call centre guy was not too happy with marketing, he had no ability to swap me.

          @Hardicus: yeah I got denied too- it’s truly ridiculous. Terrible PR.

        •  

          They don't really have a marketing team, just the two tech managers that appear on whirlpool. The various offers seem related to them not hitting the signup rate they wanted, hence temporary deals to boost rates.

          They could do with being more structured about it to not piss off new signups, or indeed those that have been with them for ages, but they appear to be a landgrab mode.

          As it stands it's best to wait for the shape of offer you like, and go with it. You don't know what else will come along later, if anything.

          Things are likely to get interesting from Oct/Nov as the NBN price gouging kicks in.

        If you're happy with 50/20 or less you won't be disappointed with Mungi. I am with them now and can't fault them. Unforunately i'm on 100/40 which is disappearing so have just signed up with Aussie on Monday when they announced it

        •  

          Yeah for me anything will be better than the 10/1.2 I'm on now on ADSL 😂

          I'm only about 300m from my node (verified by DBYD maps) so could go the 100/40, but no real need to just yet.

          I did see they were dropping the 100/40 plans and can understand people's disappointment but can also see it from a business point of view.

          At least going for Mungi to ABB you're not chasing a cheap and nasty provider!

        •  

          Should've signed up to be connected on 30 September. Beeeeeeeest of both worlds

        • +1 vote

          @TarquinOliverNimrod: I did! Well a few days before at least :)

      •  

        Yeah can't say i'm not a little bit pissed.

        Just recently signed up on their $10/month for 6 months offer, and they come straight out with a $20/month off for 6 months offer??

        •  

          Yeah I'd go even further than a little pissed. I'm ready to port out despite they're good service.
          Not a good way to treat current customers. Do they think we all bury our heads in the sand from deals as soon as we're signed up customers?

        •  

          @linton: If there is no contract can't you just cancel and then resign?

        •  

          @techboy:
          Usually they say offer is for new customers only.

    had Aussie Broadband for a couple of months and then changed to different provider now. Deals like this makes me wanna go back, will I still be new customers to them or existing one?

    • +1 vote

      I think I've asked this question before and the answer was you will be classed as "new". I've just signed up again and hoping this is the case.

      • +1 vote

        It used to be that you had to have been gone for at least 30 days. They have said however you can only do the 30 day turn around a couple of times and then they will blacklist you from promotions.

    •  

      Yeah i'm also interested in confirmation to this question!

      •  

        I moved house 2 weeks ago and was still deemed eligible for first month free (was still an active customer)
        There was an overlap in connections of 1 day.
        I did have to remain on same plan for the free month (wasnt able to go higher speed being fttp).

  • +2 votes

    Good timing. I like Mungi a lot, but the decision to get rid of the 100/40 plan means I was looking at Aussie already.

  • +1 vote

    Oh I just signed up the other day for the free modem. I think the modem works out better though, as I dont have one.

    •  

      Does the modem come with custom firmware? If yes, then this deal is better as you can't use that modem with anyone else. So you may be better of buying a 150$ modem outside and have the flexibility to switch providers.

      • +2 votes

        The ABB modem I set my granny up with didn't have custom firmware. Was just preset to ABB which I could easily wipe by resetting back to factory defaults.

    • +3 votes

      I think the $ is about the same but at least with the modem, support cannot say things like "it's your non standard modem".

    Man, $80 is great. Ive been on the $100 unlimited 100/40 since it came out, but must admit I'm starting to wonder at the price

    • +3 votes

      Wonder how? If you are getting 90mbps+ than there is nothing out there at the moment that's cheaper and better quality for that price, especially now that a lot of the providers are getting rid of the 100mbps plans…

      •  

        Oh sure, its worth the price, its just moneys a bit tight for me atmo.

        I've been with ABB since before they got their own POIs (god damn that was a big difference).

        especially now that a lot of the providers are getting rid of the 100mbps plans…

        Damn really

    •  

      I'm paying $55/month for 30mbps (maxxing out the line speed on a 50/20 plan)
      I'd happily swap your connection for mine! at the expense of having to pay an extra $45/month!
      By my calculations I'm paying 55% of the cost to get 30% of the performance and that's with a budget provider…. with this deal, I'd be paying 60% of the price for 30% of the performance (Thanks Malcolm!)

      •  

        I know what you mean, I won the node lottery though, less than 50m from the node hence the consistent 94mbps. I was on the Mungi 100/400 and it was a great price and service impeccable but of course it didn't last because they didn't price it correctly to begin with. Now I've been reviewing ISPs in the last couple of days and ABB is the one most likely to provide the 90mbps+ and unlimited, no setup fees or contracts… worth the $30 extra that I'm going to pay per month compared to Mungi.

        •  

          I though I'd won the node lottery too with a node recently place about 50m from my place, too bad though, they wont plug me in cos I'm already on FW. :(

      •  

        That blows. I've been super lucky last 2 houses have had FTTP, its amazing

  •  

    How long is the this offer valdi till? Cant seem to find any detail on it.

  •  

    Where on the site can I find those daily internet traffic graphs (mentioned in the post)?

  •  

    Can existing customers sign up for this? Thinking of leaving Aussie BB then coming back.

      Won't work.. you won't be considered a new customer.

      It annoys me that Aussie constantly do deals for new members.. Having said that I couldn't be more happy with their service/performance :)

  • +4 votes

    Literally signed up last night and they cant apply today's code to my application.

    I understand that new deals come up all the time but this is a kick in the teeth to a brand new customer…

      Aussie are pretty renowned for that, plenty of threads on Whirlpool about it. I'm in the same boat, signed up on Monday but I didn't bother calling them as I know they'll say too bad.

      That's where Mungi were great, they'd actually go out of their way to help you and do things a bit more ad-hoc and not be so ridgid. Could have also bein their downfall with 100mbit though

    • +2 votes

      Same here. Just signed up this morning, Called them but they can't help. Ridiculous.

      •  

        Its fine, their rules. But ill be looking for another ISP in the next 5 weeks before Aussie were due to be connected

      •  

        Same here.
        Signed up midday today and now this offer comes out.

      •  

        Can't you just cancel the transaction? If they are no contracts, you can always walk away.

        One reason why I hate contracts and long term commitments, once you sign they screw you over.

        There is always the right thing to do, as in following the rules, but is it the "right" thing to do though for the customer?

  •  

    Assuming they haven’t provision the service, what’s stopping you from cancelling and signing up again? ABB has no cancellation fees.

    • +1 vote

      Since there would be an application in their history for your address, your no longer a "new" customer.

      •  

        Surely you could get your partner, kids or parents to signup? Assuming that the unique identifier would be the name/person, I’d imagine that it ain’t rocket science to take advantage of the deal, unless you are the o lot person living at that address.

        •  

          The unique identifier is the address. The shopping cart denies you automatically and you have to call up and the person taking the order has to get approval from their manage to clear it. I think I would run into problems doing 2 applications so close

        • +2 votes

          @bgktmxg: So what happens if it’s a rental? From experience working for an ISP in the past, usually the “unique identifier” from an accounts or payment perspective is the person. I use the term unique identifier loosely in this case as in the context of specials/promotions.

  •  

    Can someone shed some light?

    If I'm currently getting a constant 68/40 on a 100/40 plan and then drop to a 50/20 plan, would it be wrong to assume I would be constantly maxing out at 50/20 or near?
