Analysis

For standalone unlimited ADSL2+ broadband, Dodo offers the most competitive price in Australia, with most rivals significantly more expensive.

For bundled services, Spintel currently offers the most competitive price, at $54.95 per month although some more well-known providers, including Dodo and TPG offer a similar service at around $5 more. However, Spintel is currently offering no-setup fees, making Spintel’s overall value proposition hard to beat.
