Contact Broadband Review

Contact is one of the biggest electricity generation companies in the country. It ONLY offers broadband when bundled with an accompanying electricity plan.

Contact offers a range of bundled fibre and ADSL/VDSL unlimited plans with no fixed terms.

ADSL

8mbps/2mbps – From $69.99 to $89.99

VDSL

70mbps/15mbp – From $69.99 to $89.99

FAST FIBRE

300mbps/100mbps – From $59.99 to $69.99

MAX FIBRE

900mbps/500mbps – From $79.99 to $109.99

NB: Contact’s cheapest prices involve bundling broadband, power and gas. Combining just broadband and power receives less of a discount.

Extras:

  • Contact offers home phone line and calling plans.

How does Contact broadband compare?

All plans are for 300mbps/100mbps with no home phone line. Unless indicated as an extra, all include a router, although a delivery fee can apply. It’s worth noting that most deals also include early termination fees, should you break your contract early. And many allow you to bring your own compatible router.
