Finding the best NBN provider for you

We know just how difficult it can be when the time has come for consumers to compare NBN providers, searching for the best NBN deals and cheapest NBN plans for their household.

Especially with the current number of options and NBN deals that are presently being advertised by the top NBN providers out there.

At first glance, there are a number of well-known and more publicised NBN wireless plans presently available on the market that are being advertised by the largest NBN service providers.

While these NBN plans initially seem like a more obvious choice for some, it is certainly worth taking time to compare NBN plans by looking into the number of smaller NBN providers who are offering some very competitive NBN bundles.

Each of these are also recommending several alternate options concerning NBN availability that could be an even better match your NBN network needs to an even higher degree.

 

Many may be able to suggest NBN plans that are a far more suitable fit when
you fully assess the type of NBN broadband package that you actually
need and the connection and NBN speed tier that would best suit your
home internet requirements.

Of course, there are also other some other factors to
consider such as the issues of connection speeds
concerning AVC and CVC, which can dramatically
affect the real speeds that your NBN connection
provides at certain times of the day.

And yes, we know how confusing all of these
additional pieces of conflicting data can be
when looking into the best NBN plan for
your needs, making the simplest option to
call us so that we can do all of the hard
work for you.

NBN typical speeds explained

One of the biggest questions asked after what are the cheapest NBN plans available? Is how fast will my NBN wireless connection be?

As with much of the surrounding data concerning the NBN rollout, currently, there is no simple answer.

We advise anyone who is currently looking into the NBN rollout and comparing NBN providers to give Internet Monster a call first so that we can provide you with the latest information that we have available and offer clear solutions to the questions that you have been having trouble getting straightforward responses to.

One of the most important factors to consider is that most of the current NBN plans advertise a number of options with alternative NBN tier speeds for you to choose between and while the higher priced NBN deals do offer faster upload/download speeds, some also provide you with information that describes higher typical speeds, or evening speeds. This can mean that the optimum speeds available are promoted rather than an estimation based on the busier or peak times of the day.

This has been reported by some customers, resulting in access to the internet via an NBN wireless system, being slowed to half the advertised speeds at busy periods that traditionally see heavier traffic by users – usually between 7.00pm and 11.00pm and then becoming faster once more, outside of these times. This situation has been serious enough in some cases for the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) to open a public inquiry to investigate the matter fully and to make an effort that customers will be provided with more accurate information.

For more information on how this situation can also be affected by the AVC or CVC capabilities of any given NBN provider check out our section below; “What is AVC, CVC and how does it affect my NBN speeds” for a more in-depth explanation on the effects to the NBN network, or simply call one of our professional Internet Brokers for a straightforward breakdown about the situation.

What is AVC, CVC and how does it affect my NBN speeds?

So, we all know that NBN Co is the company that has been constructing the infrastructure that will eventually become the completed NBN network, fully taking over from the older copper-wired ADSL systems that we have all been using up until now, but this is just the tip of the iceberg.

While NBN Co has built the NBN framework, they are not the ones who will be providing us with the services to access it for connecting to the internet and the ability to use our devices on a new NBN Wireless plan.

That job is being met by the various retailers who are now offering the many consumer alternatives to the different NBN ™ plans and NBN speed tiers to homes across Australia.

Also known as RSP’s (Retail Service Providers) these companies have been not only obtaining the capability for their customers to access the NBN network, a term known as AVC (Access Virtual Circuit), which in turn allows for faster connection speeds dependant on the NBN price plans and speed tiers that each customer has signed up to.

But these companies have also been purchasing the equivalent of airtime, or bandwidth from NBN Co, known as CVC (Connectivity Virtual Circuit), which determines how many of their customers can access the NBN network at the same time, a very important factor at busier spells of the day.

The more bandwidth or CVC that they have bought, the less chance that these systems will slow significantly due to the increased traffic and it is this that has been causing bottlenecks during more active periods and left consumers with considerably slower internet speeds than they were expecting of their shiny, new high-speed NBN bundle.

However, nobody knows just how much of this airtime has been bought by each of the NBN network providers and it has to then be shared out amongst each and every one of their customers. The general hope is that less frequent users will subsidise the heavier consumers, but reports of slow internet access by some have been proving that this is not quite that simple.

Some larger NBN providers have, as a rule, been able to offer more consistent connection speeds mainly due to their greater CVC purchasing power but, as with much of the information available concerning the NBN rollout, there are a lot of additional factors at play that are affecting the overall outcomes.

Remember, that if all of this sounds more than a little confusing, you are not alone and helping make sense of it all is exactly what Internet Monster is here for.

Our team of dedicated Internet Brokers make it their priority to stay informed about all of these issues so that they can provide clear advice and steer you through the overwhelming amount of information that can have a lasting, long-term effect on the decision that you make when trying to choose the right NBN plan for you.
