Vodafone NBN 100Mbps - $69 Per Month for First 6 Months (Save $20 P/M) (+ $50 Cashback from Cashrewards)

620

It looks like Vodafone is offering their 100Mbps premium plan for $69 per month for the first 6 months (save $20 per month).

No contract, though there is unfortunately a modem fee if you leave Vodafone within 36 months ($5 x remaining months). One pro of their modem is the 4G backup (Max speeds are 12Mbps for downloads and 1Mbps for uploads).

Typical Busy Speed 83Mbps. Fair Use Policy applies. Max modem cost $180. Total min cost $249. Offer ends 30/06/19. T&C apply.

Also keep the bundle discounts in mind, if already a Vodafone customer:

"Bundle eligible nbn™ plans, phone, tablet and mobile broadband to get from 5% to 20% off plan fees. T&C apply."

5% off each plan for 2 services
10% off each plan for 3 services
15% off each plan for 4 services
20% off each plan for 5 services

Edit: $50 cashback from Cashrewards (normally $30) - Cashrewards

    No contract, though there is unfortunately a modem fee if you leave Vodafone within 36 months ($5 x remaining months). One pro of their modem is the 4G backup (Max speeds are 12Mbps for downloads and 1Mbps for uploads).

    So there is a contract just not for the NBN part.

    terrible deal.

      Is the modem useful if you move to other NBN providers? Of course except for the 4g backup…

        isp provided routers are nearly always garbage.

        •  

          I always suspected this, but don't know enough about it. ISP always tries to scare you into using theirs. What's a good router to use for HFC NBN? Or where to research this? (Yes I have already Google'd it but its not easy to sift through the results for a non-expert)

            @AlexG: I'm a tplink fan, eg Archer D7

            Asus is popular but rubbish looks imo.

            Edit: not on nbn yet, due to the liberals mish mash network be careful your exact type (fttn, fttp) etc is confirmed working by other nbn users with the router you choose

            @AlexG: I've just set up a ubiquiti edgerouter X and uap AC LR for my abb fttc connection.

            Not super plug and play but seems to be working well

        It will work, but won't offer you much.

    •  

      This won't suit those who like to move from BYO plan to BYO plan, though I can see this from Vodafone's perspective. They only want to support the one piece of hardware and can offer 4G backup.

      I would consider doing this for 6 months, moving down to their 50Mbps $69 plan and getting a bundle discount due to having other services with them. Though that is just my personal situation.

        "those who like to move from BYO plan to BYO plan"

        Absolutely nothing wrong with this.

        ISp changes takes mere hours not days and no contracts just protects to user who can freely leave whenever they want if the service provided turns to shit or better deal is available.

          Never said there was anything wrong with moving from provider to provider with a BYO router.. simply stating that this plan is not suited for everyone - particularly those who already own a good non ISP router / want the freedom to move from deal to deal.

      If one has op shops near them go and have a look for Telstra Gateway Max. I've found quite a few of them and they are very capable NBN modems/routers.

    •  

      How many other nbn suppliers give you a free modem?

    •  

      You can sign up without the modem as well

    •  

      Can I return the modem?

    For cash rewards cash back prepare to wait for 3+3 months
    3 months before u become eligible for cash back and another 3 months for cash rewards to investigate why it is not being paid out

      There is a good mouse deal tomorrow that will help you click and keep your cursor in the browser session a lot better so you can have some tracked cashback. I don't know how people struggle tbh.

      cashback type of websites are designed for people who just click and forget, then a few months later finding some suprise $$ available for a treat, not for someone who is waiting for the fund to become available for next week's grocery.

    83 Mbps is a little low

    •  

      It's actually relatively high when you compare to most RSPs. AusssieBB is 90. Optus is 80. Telstra is 80.

      That said, it's an average for "evening speed". Could be higher or lower.

    • +3 votes

      Agreed.

      But if I got 83km/h on the monash during peak (anything after 6am) I'd give you my first born.

    Vodafone 4G Backup: "… You
    must call us to activate this service. It is available until the fault is
    resolved or for a period of 30 consecutive days (whichever occurs
    first). Speeds for this service are limited to a maximum of 12Mbps
    (download) and 1 Mbps (upload)."

    What's the point to have a backup connection when it is not switching automatically?

    Interesting if it is possible to jump on the modem and connect 4G in the config manually … Or if the cable is removed from WAN interface will it enable 4G interface and set the default route via it automatically?

      It's set as always on and will fail over when no broadband available. When my brother picked his modem he was connected via 4g till the nbn was activated then the 4g switched over to nbn

  •  

    we have the nbn 50 plan and fttp, just did a speed test and got 43.7Mbps down and 18.4Mbps up while streaming HD

    havnt had any issues with them, whenever it swaps to 4g and back to nbn it seems to go slower but a restart fixes that

    Vodafone TV and Google mini offer finished ?

  •  

    "Max modem cost $180. Total min cost $249. Offer ends 30/06/19. T&C apply."

    For whatever reason if I cancel the service, the maximum cost would be $429 ($180+$249). Am I correct?

  •  

    Are they still including the Google mini and Vodafone TV box?

  •  

    Wonder if other isps will price match

    I have to change over to nbn next week have been holding off.

  •  

    Can you bring the modem with you when you go away and use the 4g?

  •  

    Aussie has/had the same deal because NBN are offering a rebate for 100 Mbit signups

  •  

    So is the bundle discount on top of this discount? So would be ~$62 a month with NBN and 2 mobiles connected?

  •  

    Do VF provide any option to BYO modem? I have FTTP and ABB were happy to let me bring my own router

  •  

    Just to confirm, if you leave this deal you only have to pay whatever is left of the $180 modem fee?

    Can you pay it outright or do you HAVE to pay it off $5 a month for the remaining of the 36 months?

    •  

      The modem is free whilst you are with them ($5pm discounted to $0pm), if you leave them you will see a charge on your last bill for $5 x the remaining months.

  •  

    if they had dedicated IPs i would signup, until then: nope.

  •  

    If you are on HFC, don't you already have a modem from NBN? In this case, do we still really need Voda's?

    •  

      Just purchased a house, moving in this weekend, address check states i have HFC. What do you mean "don't you have a modem" , interested to know what to sign up to
