news National broadband provider TPG has released a new range of National Broadband Network plans aimed at businesses, with the headline plan offering 100Mbps speeds and unlimited data and telephone usage for $120 per month.
In a statement issued this morning, TPG chief operating officer Craig Levy said the NBN business bundles (which you can see online here) were designed for small businesses to get more from their Internet connection.
“The increased capacity and reliability you can get over the NBN will really help small businesses around productivity and allow more multi-tasking as staff won’t have to fight over limited bandwidth anymore,” Levy said. “Combined with the included Static IP, the extra bandwidth will also allow businesses to make more use of applications such as VPN, remote access, FTP and server hosting.”
TPG noted it was not new to the small business market but the rollout of NBN had allowed the telco to expand its corporate customer base.
“TPG is well seasoned in delivering services to small businesses using Fibre Optic and Ethernet in the First Mile (EFM) technology on our own infrastructure. With the NBN rollout rapidly increasing, TPG’s coverage has widened and therefore more small businesses are able to take advantage of our competitive offering.” added Levy.
In the last month TPG has also released NBN plans on the Fixed Wireless network which is the first time for the telco.
TPG’s new set of business plans are offered at three speed tiers — up to 12Mbps, up to 25Mbps and up to 100Mbps. The 12Mbps plan comes with unlimited data usage and ‘pay as you go’ telephone calls for $69.99 per month, while the 25Mbps and 100Mbps plans offer three options. The first and second options come with 500GB and unlimited amounts of data respectively and unlimited local and national telephone calls.
The third option comes with unlimited data usage, and bundles in unlimited calls to mobile phones. All options include a static IP, which some businesses find useful.
Overall pricing ranges from $69.99 per month at the bottom end, up to $119.99 for the highest-end plan.
The plans appear to undercut some of TPG’s other brands. For example, its subsidiary iiNet currently offers a 100Mbps NBN plan with 1TB of download quota for $10 more per month than TPG’s highest value plan.
There’s a lot to like here. Many small businesses who have the NBN will find a plan which offers 100Mbps speeds coupled with unlimited data at the price of $120 per month to be quite attractive.
