Dodo launches $60 unlimited NBN plan

Internet service provider Dodo, which was purchased by M2 Telecommunications earlier this year, has taken the wraps off its consumer-oriented National Broadband Network plans.

The plans include a plan with an unlimited data quota for $59.90 at the base NBN speed of 12 megabits per second downlink and 1Mbps uplink.

The cheapest Dodo NBN plan, ‘Lite Fibre’, costs a minimum $29.90 per month and includes 5GB of on-peak data and 5GB off-peak data every month at 12/1Mbps; the plan costs up to $59.90 depending on the speed tier.

Plans across all NBN speed tiers are available with 10GB, 50GB, 200GB of data included. Dodo is also offering plans with 2TB of data for all three speed tiers except 12/1Mbps, where it’s replaced by the unlimited option. Any plan can have unlimited off-peak data as an add-on for an extra $15 per month.

The company’s top plan costs $89.90 for 2TB of data (1TB on-peak and 1TB off-peak) at 100/40Mbps.

Excess downloads on all plans cost $2 per GB. Plans are available on a month-to-monht, 12 month and 24 month basis.

Dodo is also offering fibre phone bundles, starting at $0 per month for a pay-as-you-go plan.

M2 completed its acquisition of Dodo in May. The deal involved 10.47 million new M2 shares and around $157.69 million in cash.

In an interview in March, before the acquisition was announced, Dodo founder Larry Kestelman said that when the company launched its NBN plans it will “be in a blaze of glory”.

Dodo was holding off on launching NBN plans while it waited for the network to achieve a scale that makes it worthwhile, Kestelman said.
