The NBN. It’s a dog’s breakfast of fibre, coax, copper, wireless, satellite and, presumably somewhere, tin cans and bits of string, but it’s the NBN we’ve got.
Soon someone somewhere will write a book entitled “How I learned to stop worrying and love the NBN”, but presumably that will only be because they’ve finally achieved a great price and fast speeds all the time.
Whether that will be an Amaysim customer, I don’t know – I haven’t yet had the chance to experience the quality of its NBN connectivity, but if Amaysim’s NBN service is as good as its mobile service, customers should be well pleased, indeed.
This kind of simplicity is what you’d expect from a company whose ethos has always been keeping things simple and affordable, and it’s the way all businesses should aspire to run their operations.
Now, it’s important to note that companies like Amaysim (and its competitors!) do love a good special, and a special discounted six-month promotional pricing period (as listed in the T&Cs), and that’s what it is offering for its first two plans.
Until 31 July, the first plan is available at $40 incl GST for 12/1Mbps with unlimited data for the first six months, after which the plan reverts to its normal $60 pricing.
The second plan is available for $60 per month, again until 31 July, with unlimited data and 25/5Mbps speeds, with the cost reverting to $70 per month after the aforementioned initial six months period of special discounted pricing.
The third plan remains at its normal $90 per month for unlimited data, but at 100/40Mbps speeds.
No doubt the speeds for all these plans come with the usual “up to” caveat in the fine print.
Rob Appel, Amaysim’s commercial director of broadband, said: “With our new pricing starting at just $40 each month, we’re making it easy for everyday Aussies to make the switch and find the speed that’s right for them – without making a massive dent to their hip-pocket.
“We’re committed to offering great value nbn plans backed by a brilliant online experience. These are some of the most affordable nbn prices available in market, and they even beat some ADSL plans, so we’ re confident that we’ll make it worth even more for customers to move to the new network.”
Whether Amaysim will come up with special pricing anew in six months hence is yet to be seen, but as each plan comes with no lock-in contracts, one wonders how much more competitive 2018 will be compared to the insanely great levels of competition we’ve already seen thus far.
