About First Month Free promotion
The First Month Free promotion is available to new to Exetel residential nbn™ customers only and excludes our Basic Speed nbn™ plan. Your first month free will be issued as one month’s credit on your first invoice. The credit amount applied will equal the value of the monthly fee of your new nbn™ plan when you purchased the service. Should you change plan during your first month with Exetel, the value of the credit applied to your account will remain unchanged if you upgrade to a higher value plan. If you downgrade to a lower value monthly plan fee during the first month you will be invoiced for the difference between your original and new monthly fee pro-rated over the remainder of your first month. The First Month Free promotion is for a limited time only, and may be withdrawn by Exetel at any time.
$79 modem fee if you cancel within 6 mths. 1st mth free available to new residential nbn™ customers only. You can simply BYO modem and not pay a thing.
Some things to note about Exetel
They require 30 days notice to terminate. That means if you only plan to use the free month, you pretty much need to cancel the day it goes active.
If you choose bank account as your payment method, then it will take them almost a week to actually activate your service. CC is faster.
For those paranoid that ordering an internet service will somehow disqualify them from a loan, they do credit checks. That's part of why it takes them so long to activate your service.
Let the free internet continue!
