NBN Tier 2 & Tier 3 Plans: 25 Mbps Download

Tier 2 & Tier 3 plans on the National Broadband Network (NBN) provide a maximum of 25Mbps down and 5Mbps up (Tier 3 has 10Mbps up).

These plans offer a considerable boost in speed over ADSL 2+ connections, especially on the upload speeds.

1) Download Speed at 25Mbps This is the speed at which you download content to your home or business

2) Upload Speed at 5Mbps (10Mbps for Tier 3)This is the speed at which content leaves your home (e.g. your pictures or video of you)

Compare Tier 2 & Tier 3 plans below or try our advanced comparison

Tier 2 NBN Plans (25Mbps)


At 25Mbps download speeds, Tier 2 NBN speeds are best for residential use where a household uses the internet regularly and multiple users in a household will be able to get a solid connection on Tier 2 NBN. Check out our NBN Speeds explained page

NBN Plan Availability


The NBN is rolling out around Australia and fibre broadband locations are being activated everyday. 93% of Australian residences will get Fibre broadband. The National Broadband Network site has an availability checker.

NBN Hardware


When the NBN is install to your home, part of the hardware installed by the government will be a device called the Network Termination Device (NTD). This is what the network connects to, and as such, it plays a similar role to deliver the internet to your house as your modem does now. You still need to share the connection though, so you will need a router.

National Broadband Network (NBN)

The National Broadband Network (NBN) is a project commissioned by the Australian Government to upgrade the level of internet access in Australia to be in line with other major countries around the world. The goal of the NBN is to deliver faster and more reliable internet access to all Australians.

This firstly involves laying fibre optic cables that are expected to connect around 93 per cent of Australian homes to the NBN. In many areas of the country these cables are already being installed, and it is expected that the entire project will be completed by June 2021. The Australian Government has appointed NBN Co to build and manage the NBN project.

About National Broadband Network Speeds

Our comparisons show the maximum download and upload speeds that can be achieved through each type of broadband connection. These speeds are wholesale speeds from the NBN Co as sold to the Internet providers. As each internet provider must get link the user from the NBN fibre to the internet, there is no guarantee that this maximum speed will actually be achieved by every user. There are a number of external factors that may contribute to the actual achieved speed, including:

  • Configuration: The user's hardware, software, and system configuration.
  • Users: The number of simultaneous users per single connection.
  • Content Type: The type of content being accessed and downloaded.
  • Source: The source of content being accessed and downloaded.
  • Connection Type: The method of connection - fixed or wireless.
