The Kogan Group had said in June last year that it would begin offering broadband services sometime in 2018.
In a statement, the company said all those who had put their names on the waiting list and had been certified as being able to connect to the NBN would be contacted with offers.
The cost of the basic NBN connection offered by Kogan is $58.90 per month plus $69 upfront for a modem. This is for the bronze or NBN 12 tier connection.
“We are always working hard to make the most in-demand products and services more accessible and we expect that Kogan Internet’s NBN plans will shake up the market with their affordable, flexible and simple offerings,” said Kogan.com executive director David Shafer.
“At Kogan.com, we have always believed that better internet connectivity is key to improving how people live and work.
“More affordable Internet access is a huge win for all Australians. With the recent improvements in the NBN, and today’s launch of Kogan Internet, there has never been a better time for Aussies to change their Internet provider.
“It is important that Aussies understand that, even if they thought they found a good deal in their current ADSL or cable connection, there is no guarantee their existing provider will continue to offer the best value service in the age of NBN, so it’s worth shopping around.
“We’re thrilled to expand our partnership with Vodafone to bring Kogan NBN plans to Australians, enabling more Aussies to save money on their home internet connection.
“Hundreds of thousands of Aussies have already made the switch from their old mobile phone providers to Kogan Mobile, and now Aussies can get the same type of simple, flexible, affordable service with their nbn™ connection.”
Matthew Lobb, general manager, Fixed Broadband, at Vodafone Australia, said: “Following the success of Kogan Mobile in providing more competitive and affordable mobile phone plans, we are excited to expand our partnership to launch Kogan NBN.
"For far too long Australians have had to put up with incumbent ISPs who are more interested in maintaining the status quo than delivering better broadband. We believe more competition is always better for Australian broadband consumers and are proud to support it.”
