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, or power and gas plan.

Contact offers a total of four wireless and fibre plans + power plans:

Wireless: 37/18Mbps

300GB: $55p/m

Unlimited: $65p/m


Fast Fibre (300/100Mbps): $70p/m

Max Fibre (900mbps/500mbps): $85p/m

NB: The above prices are for Contact’s fibre + power plans. Bundling broadband, power and gas earns an extra discount of $5 p/m per plan.


  • 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.
