Telstra won't be offering 50Mbps NBN plans, will offer 25Mbps and 100Mbps, though

Telstra will be skipping the 50Mbps NBN speed tier, will jump right up to 100Mbps instead

While I sit here on my 8Mbit/384Kbit connection, hating it, Telstra have decided to announce they won't be offering a 50Mbps NBN service. Instead, the leading Australian telco will be offering 12/1Mbps speeds, with upgrade options of 25Mbit and 100Mbps.

Telstra will also be offering just two quota amounts for their plans, 25GB and 500GB - which seems extreme. Nothing in between is a strange move, usually they move with quotas like 25GB, 50GB, 100GB, and so forth, but here, we're going from 25GB right up to 500GB. Telstra were asked if they would provide an option between 25GB and 500GB, but there's no confirmation on whether we should expect that.

 

Telstra's Executive Director of Service Delivery, Phill Sporton, told a live blog that they are still in the "early days" of NBN plan discussion. He adds: "We have developed a set of plans based on customer input. However, we are always interested in feedback from our customers and I expect we may develop more plans as we get more experience on what our customers want from NBN."
