nbn Referral Credit Increased to $100 for Residential Referrer (Was $50), $150 Business Referrer (Was $100) @ Aussie Broadband

1102

Just received an email notification advising of the promo.

Note that the $100 credit is for FIRST TIME REFERRALS only. If you have already referred someone, you will get the regular $50.

The referred friend will receive $50 whereas the referrer will now receive $100. Business service credit has also been increased to $150.

Promo ends June 30th, after which it will go back to $50 I suspect.

*Your credit will be shown on your next monthly bill once your friend’s service is active. This promotional credit is applicable for first-time referrals only. For more information, please see our terms and conditions below.

Referral Links

Referral: random (565)

Until 30 June 2021, $100 (residential service) or $150 (business service) for the first only referral by referrer & $50 for referee. The normal referral bonuses of $50 each for referrer & referee apply afterwards.

            @netsurfer: nope, $100 was never on the table, lol~

            The referred friend will receive $50

      Yeah it seems we can't put in our referral code in ozb

      It is same for Tangarine as well. Got one like that and had no issues.

    That's nice, with tripled of their share price, they are trying harder.

    I asked the mods ages ago about the referrals for ABB; they basically said that ABB had requested NOT to have the referrals publically listed like most other deals.

    Hadn't seen a business referral thing before, but I also didn't have a business account for our work connections until recently either - the performance of the 'residential' plans was identical i.e. excellent, as it is at home.

      Yeah I don't have much to compare to but their support line is very good

    This needs to be edited to say only if it is your first referral to be correct.

      Ah good point, I missed that. Will edit.

    I have had several messages requesting the link but I have never seen a referral credit. Is it rude to message people to check if it was used? edit: maybe I should be requesting people message me if they use it just so we can be sure its working.

    •  

      They may have never gone ahead to use your code.

      Same.

      Not sure if it applies with ABB but often can't be combined with promo codes for eg. 6 months $30 off

      •  

        Yep… "New customers signing up can receive a referral credit or a promotional/discount offer, but not both"

    Paying $109pm. Use to be $89. Time to switch.

      Superloop.

      Same high quality connection (in fact better for me with a Plex server as they don't use cgnat like Aussiebb), cheaper price.

        Aussie BB will turn off Carrier Grade NAT for free if you ask.

        Thanks. Any downtime when we switch/churn?

          No downtime.

        I was a loyal ABB customer for years, but I had a persistent issue with rain-related outages that they made incredibly difficult to escalate. Long sorry short, NBN eventually fixed the issue. But I thought I'd give Superloop a go as I was disappointed with ABB's handling of the fault. I have been just as happy with the speeds and their same level of transparency.

      Superloop, Mate, Future Broadband, Swoop & Launtel offer 100/40.

        Thanks. Will have a look.

      I was in the same boat 6 months ago and switched to Superloop ($83.95 for 6 months) and it's been great. No downtime and no noticeable difference in service.

      Looking for other options for the next 6 months though!

    •  

      I'm with Future Broadband and they are solid. Resell AAPT business network to home users. Offer 100/40 and they throw in a routed static IP address as well. Also plan options like data banking or unlimited. They also have a discount if you pay in advance but you have to already be a customer to do it.

    What is usual the churning time for ABB to Superloop for FTTB service. Can we use the existing modem, and keep same phone number.

    • +1 vote

      Time = under 1 hour if all goes to plan.
      Modem = the modem you have now can be used.
      Phone = Superloop don't do phones.

    •  

      Phone is the main holding block for me. While the NBN Internet churning process is fast. The VOIP one can take a few days (and last time I checked with ABB, the recommendation only cancel / terminate ABB after VOIP is transferred).

      Assuming you go with one of the VOIP providers, DID (dedicated number) is not free. So ideally, get the VOIP / phone number ported first, then do the NBN.

    Lmao these guys are bleeding so hard. I can smell the desperation from here.

    So where do I post my referral code?

      Click on Edit at the refferal box under OP and opt-in to the DM referral system.

    I've cancelled NBN gracefully. Now on Opus 5G Broadband with 500mbps DL and 70mbps Upload. Can't be any happier, good bye scammers…

    •  

      Even my Optus 4g is way better than my neighbour's NBN 50. Can't wait for 5g to reach my area.

    •  

      Yeah over the next few years I think a lot will move to 5g. Then anyone on fixed wireless and skymuster will move to Starlink.

      • +4 votes

        a lot will move to 5g

        And then they'll hate it after it hits a tipping point considering it's a shared medium with contention issues.

        • -1 vote

          They said that with 4g and overall it's still ok.

          •  

            @Geoff-bargain: Because people aren't typically using it as their primary internet connection at home. It's basic physics.

      NBN gave me quote of $3000 AUD to upgrade my service from FTTC to FTTP
      I gave them a return quote of $0 by canceling my NBN service. 😂

        At 1am in the morning… What speed and ping do you get at 7pm at night?

  •  

    I'm no longer with Aussie Broadband, but they've really jacked up their prices since I was with them, jeez.

    I'm currently on month 4 of 6 with Superloop for 50/20 at $58.95 a month with their $20 off a month for 6 months plan.

    •  

      Me too, and they just boosted my speed for free!

    •  

      Hey, check your superloop account. They reduced their prices sometime over the last few months. Your 50/20 plan is now, at a normal price, 69.95, hich means that after the $20 discount, you should be paying 49,95. In my case they disguised this as a FREE SPEED UPGRADE, when in reality what happened is that their plan prices went down. (I'm on 25/5, which no longer exists and is named 25/10, and is cheaper than what my original price for 25/5 is, but of course they haven't bothered with updating it on my bill)

    Signed up with ABB with phone port. They took too long to port phone and telstra disconnected before they ported. Now am being charged $30. Would not recommend ABB if you want to move your phone too

  • +8 votes

    I wouldn't recommend ABB at all. Couldn't give a shit about their customers anymore. Full of excuses.
    Their customers are dropping like flies and churning over to others.

    Oh wait let's just wait for the pathetic excuse, "BuT TheIR cALl CEnTrE iS SoOOooO GOoD"

    Why on earth would you need to contact them so much to justify $20+ more a month than most other better RSPs? If you enjoy calling a contact centre and spending that much more a month for that privilege, then good for you.

    • +3 votes

      If a service is good, it shouldn't matter what their call centre is like.

    •  

      I was with ABB for years and did have to call them a lot to deal with a persistent fault. While they have an Australian call centre and the staff are very friendly, I can tell you that they are still at the mercy of NBN's techs who don't turn up, close cases without doing anything and don't respond to complaints. So unless the fault is really clear-cut, it's still a massive battle to get issues resolved.

  •  

    I'm a ABB customer, how does the whole referral sharing thing work? I'd be happy to share my code.

    • +1 vote

      Go to Settings and your Referrals section on here. Click the box that allows others to (randomly) PM you with a request for an ABB referral code. They would then join ABB with that code you give them, and you receive the benefit.

      •  

        Nice! found it and ticked it and will add others. Thanks.

      I was about to post here, my friend is getting the same error, I have never given out my code before and they have never been with ABB. Frustrating.

    I was with Aussie approx 7mths back now, any chance this will apply if i rejoin?
