Cable only broadband plans (not bundle)

Answered
Hi, I want to upgrade my cable broadband which is currently under a bundle. I don't want a home phone any longer so want a cable only plan, can't seem to find pricing on cable only pricing. Can anyone point me towards a pricing plan for NON bundle pricing?

Re: Cable only broadband plans (not bundle)

I appologise, since they have now moved all the plans up, the 500GB one is cheaper then it was, it used to be $119.95 for $500 GB by itself, where there Broadband Bundle is $113 (Broadband Bundle)

 

But according to the CIS the new price for the 500GB would still be $99.95, 

• $99.95 when you don’t have a full Telstra Voice or Home Phone service. Your Monthly Data Allowance on this plan is charged at 0.012¢/MB.

 

However you would still be cheaper by about $6 per month to have the phone on Home Phone Budget which is only $23.95, and you could get the internet at $69.95, so that'd be $93.90, even better if you could get Home Phone Light which is only like $15 a month, so it'd be about $15 a month better off.

Re: Cable only broadband plans (not bundle)

The non bundled plans are usually the same price or more then the bundled price for the Broadband Bundles (which don't included calls) so they are not really common... They do have a couple of 'Naked Cable' plans but they are only 50 or 100GB... so if you needed more, chances are you will be cheaper on a bundle then standalone. 

 

CIS for the 50/100GB Naked Cable Plans.

Jeff, That page takes me back to the Broadband Bundles ($73/$93/$113) which still include the line rental.

Re: Cable only broadband plans (not bundle)

It has always been one which you had to ask for or be offered rather then a standard online offer as it has requirements such as only being available when it is also with the internet service.

Re: Cable only broadband plans (not bundle)

I'd also suggest that the following give gives some valued information, and in particular mentions having or not having a Telstra home line phone connection. https://www.telstra.com.au/content/dam/tcom/personal/help/pdf/cis-personal/broadband/personal-critic...

 

The following link has been updated this year, it's a PDF which shows full termns, conditions and (2015) pricing for cable: https://www.telstra.com.au/content/dam/tcom/personal/consumer-advice/pdf/consumer/bp-part-b.pdf

 

BUT you will also find in there, a link for checking cable availablity, which takes you back to the link I provided in the earlier post.

@big_Alistair

Homeline Light is a below the line offer. It's not something that is generally available. So you MAY be able to convince a rep to give it to you, but expect Budget to be the best available offer if you want the discount for having a homeline.

As stated, the $30 discount is more than the cost of the line, though you do have to take another 2 year contract to get the reduced price.
If you've found a solution then don't forget to mark that post accordingly.

In the future I will not want a home phone.  Can I have a cable only internet?

Re: Cable only broadband plans (not bundle)

Hi hudsonR.

You can purchase stand alone internet connections with Cable, meaning you will not need to  have a Phoneline connection or bundle your service. 

Best option is to chat with our Broadband Sales team here http://tel.st/3fdd and they can go through what is available for you and provide plan pricing and data allowance options. 

Regards - Tom
