    I thought they always had the 1st month free ???

  •  

    Not applicable to 100/40 plan but good for 100/20 plan.

  •  

    Did not work for me…(100/20 Plan) "Invalid promo/referral code provided".

    Just reached out to Aussie BB and here is their response.

    "Ok unfortunately that promo ended on 31/1 and you signed up on 10/2"

    Jesus Christ I legit just signed up yesterday arvo. Switched from Telstra to Abb on a 100/20 plan. Any way I can tell them to give me first month free now ? Or is it too late ?

    Just churned away from Aussie BB. TBH they didn't live up to the same hype that I see here and other forums.

    A lot of outages in SA recently but the final straw was 5 calls due to constant no flow issues. After the third modem test they wanted to perform I indicated that I may leave. Bloke from Aussie advised their service is the exact same as the cheaper DoDo on NBN and the issues would still be there.

    Changed to Superloop. Churn happened within 30 mins. Absolute no issues the second I churned.

      Is switching NBN between providers (HFC) relatively painless compared to switching eg ADSL2+ providers?

      • +1 vote

        Can only talk from a FTTN point of view but it was remarkably easier than ADSL churns. I used to work for several ISPs and the NBN version are super quick in comparison.

          What speeds are you getting? Im on fttn getting 12/6 on a 25 down plan. Apparently the fastest my line speed can be?.

      • +5 votes

        I'm on HFC, went from ABB to SL. All online, took about 10-15 minutes. Just do it inline with your billing cycle so you don't overlap charges. There's usually guides on most service provider's websites on when to do it.

        Churned from Superloop to ABB on a first month free promo in under an hour about two weeks ago. Also on HFC.

      •  

        Churn from Telstra to SL was under 1 minute here. Clicked the "accept" on the SL customer portal, internet died almost immediately. Restarted router, and SL was connected.

          Wow! Good to hear something positive came out of nbn after all! Still gutted to have to farewell my cheap and stable Telstra 110/5 cable plan.

          •  

            @bozbargain: If only my Telstra cable was stable I would be able to stay off NBN for another 12 months. Oh well, hopefully I can get some support from ABB if I have issues after connecting.

      •  

        Yes under 3 mins for HFC 👍

    •  

      What area are you in? Does that make a difference for people’s experiences with different NBN providers? I’m
      Thinking of switching too. With TPG currently.

      I went to SL on the last promo they had for $20 off per month. Have had dropouts pretty much every day since. When it's working the speed is the same but very frustrating when its dropping out numerous times per day. When the 6 month period is up, I'll go back. Hopefully ABB run another $20 off promo by then.

      You made sure it’s not due to wifi congestion? I was about to call and complain when I discovered my modem was super crap over 2.4ghz but I got 94mbps consistently on 5ghz.

    •  

      Yeah did the same after new users kept getting better deals than current members, churned to SL in 3 mins and getting $20 off for the first 6 months with no drop outs pretty happy

      just for balance, I loved Superloop until recently. Over about 3 to 4 weeks, I lost connectivity entirely too many times to count.
      Their CEO ended up sending out apologies and updates. It was a (first world problems) nightmare. Haven't had issues since or really before, but it wasn't too long ago.

    •  

      I also changed to Superloop after ABB would only let me get a free month on second property if wife signed up under her name. She wasn't around at the time so I said stuff it and went with SL, who've been great. Surprised me coz even the tightarses at Telstra give promos on new connections, but not ABB..

    •  

      When is the best time to churn?

      Just before the debit date of the next month/cycle?

    I'm here for no love for exciting customers comment 😉

      What are you excited about?

    • +2 votes

      I used to be an existing customer. Right now on the discounted Superloop ($20 off per month). Will come back for this or similar deal after 6 months.

    •  

      Would seem odd for ABB to give away a free month each month to existing customers though.

    Working here on 100/20.

    Thanks op. Just need a deal on a new house now, that I can use this with.

    Since when did they change to 100/20? Is it for every ISP? Usually it's 100/40 i thought

    • +4 votes

      Most service providers introduced it to as a cheaper option since most people don't need the fast upload speed. You can still get 100/40 but the 'default' is 100/20. $89 vs $99 per month.

    Before joining ABB do a check to see if your area is having performance issues in peak times- https://www.aussiebroadband.com.au/cvc-graphs/

    Is anyone with Tangerine and willing to share their experience ?

  • +1 vote

    I've had a very positive experience so far having switched from iinet to ABB last month. No outages, reliable speeds and great customer service. The text messages / emails informing you of faults or planned outages is nice to have when working from home. Dealing with the overseas iinet call centers was a nightmare. Couldn't be happier that I switched.

  •  

    I'm with TPG and about to get NBN FTTC at my block of apartments (end of Feb). Why does ABB offer a 150 or 200 service when no-one else seems to, or are those speeds only for certain areas? TPG have been very good in my area but I'm willing to change and pay more if I can get the speed.

    • +3 votes

      FTTC is capped by nbn at 100 Mbps.

      150+ Mbps plans are only for FTTP.

      •  

        tnx, that opens up a few options then. I saw MyRepublic are offering a special "gamer" package, looks good. I always thought Internode were meant to be the best but it seems Canstar rate ABB quite high. Choices ………

        • +3 votes

          Gamer plans are marketing fluff and are no different to regular plans.

          TPG own Internode. I wouldn't change to Internode if you stay with TPG.

          Whoever you go with don't go on a contract so you can easily change ISP.

            @Twix: Thanks, gives me something to work off. Right now I have the s*#ts with TPG as my ADSL line sync went down on 7th of Feb and they're saying it wont be back up till 27th of Feb due to work Telstra is doing on the NBN, only problem is I seem to be the only one in my building effected by this "outage". Maybe I'm been to hard on them :/

          •  

            @Twix: Duplicate.

  •  

    I churned from ABB to Superloop a few months ago. If I churn back to ABB now, am I a "New Customer"?

  •  

    Would you recommend chruning from Internode to ABB (NBN Wireless)?
    I think the ABB plan is Unlimited data vs Internode 500GB limit for same or cheaper.

    Thanks

  •  

    Ask for a friend: if I took advantage of the free month, is there any penalty to leave within the month?

  •  

    Switched to ABB 2 days ago and signed up via phone. Asked them today if i was eligible for the first month free because i couldn't enter a coupon over the phone. She said no too late you signed up.

      Not surprised at all. ABB sales department dont care about you

    • +2 votes

      I too signed up with ABB via phone without the code (at the end of January). After learning of this first month free offer, I emailed accounts@aussiebroadband.com.au with my first invoice, included a reference to this Ozbargain post and kindly requested they assist in crediting me for the first month. After 3 days they replied granting the full month back as credit. Maybe try again, good luck!

  •  

    Chose this offer to finally bite the bullet and commence my journey into the realms of NBN…

    Just been notified that installation is scheduled 2 weeks from today.

  •  

    Just,wonder Why anyone is not commenting about Barefoot provider,anyone?

  •  

    Code doesn't work anymore for me.

  •  

    Code not working for me either.

  •  

    Worked fine for me, Saturday 15/02/2020.
    I am an existing customer and purchased a new service for another location.

    •  

      Now I'm reading that these codes may be location specific. Hence why not working for me. I'm not sure why they would block my area though, as it is due to come online in the next 2 weeks. I would have thought they would have wanted lots of new customers.

      Edit:
      Retried. It's actually valid for 100/20 but invalid for 100/40.

      I was trying to order 100/40.

  •  

    oops not associated

  •  

    Thanks. Code worked here. I'm transferring from iiNet FTTN.

  •  

    If I have a wifi modem that worked in my previous place FTTP, and now I am on HFC, will the same wifi modem work?
