Foxtel Announces Unlimited Broadband Bundles

After 12 months of offering broadband and home phone bundles, Foxtel today announced the launch of its new Unlimited broadband and home phone bundles.

"With the number of internet enabled devices in each home on the rise, coupled with a proliferation of data intensive activities like video streaming, Australian consumers are demanding more from their broadband service than ever before," Foxtel announced in a statement.

"Foxtel’s new unlimited broadband data plans are designed to meet this demand and eliminate household concerns over exceeding monthly data caps."

Andrew Lorken, Foxtel’s Executive Director of Broadband, IT and PMO, said, "Customers are telling us they love the combination of Foxtel’s unbeatable premium TV entertainment and our broadband and home phone services, and that they are growing hungrier for broadband data to feed their insatiable appetite for online entertainment such as Foxtel’s on-demand video streaming service Anytime."

"Our new unlimited broadband bundles satisfy this hunger, giving our customers the freedom to browse, stream and connect with friends on multiple devices in their homes at any time of the day or night without worrying about data usage.

"And when combined with the Foxtel Hub, Foxtel’s very own WiFi modem, built with the latest modem technology and designed to deliver fast WiFi speeds and great in-home coverage, it’s easy to see how Foxtel’s new unlimited broadband bundles are truly 'built for entertainment."

The bundles cost $115 per month on a 12 or 24 month plan.

That's a minimum of $3459 to $5979 on a 24 month direct debit plan, depending on included TV pack. This cost is based on the inclusion of an Unlimited Broadband Home Bundle and a Non-Platinum HD TV pack. A $99 "bundle activation fee" is included.

The bundle cost for existing Foxtel Platinum HD TV subscribers is $95 per month on a 12 or 24 month plan.

That's a minimum cost of $5595 on a 24 month direct debit plan, again including the $99 "bundle activation" fee.

Foxtel have confirmed that there will be no data download limits for Foxtel TV on Foxtel Go and Anytime when connected to Foxtel Broadband.

    Sooo.. whats the cost with a the tv package???

    I still don't know why you'd get broadband through Foxtel, when they just use ADSL anyway. Isn't the whole point of Cable to use Cable internet, not the same stuff you can get through any other ISP?

      When my parents moved house, they moved to an area that had no cable, and limited ADSL, the only ISPs that would offer ADSL there were Telstra and Foxtel (for some reason any of the others that resell Telstra services wouldn't offer it, or couldnt connect it after they said they could)

      They aren't heavy downloaders, and with the Telstra plans being pretty pricy at the time unless you wanted almost no download at all, getting the Foxtel bundle made sense, it didnt have the same amount of download as the equivalent priced telstra bundle (about half, which got doubled within a month of signing up) but they didnt need that, and got Foxtel (via satellite) as well.

      Apart from some stability issues with the connection, which happens no matter what ADSL provider you connect with in that area, they have been pretty happy, even getting some extra channel packs for the Foxtel

      I do agree that they should offer cable internet in areas where its available, but thats something they have to work out with the cable owners I guess

      In fact, it's generally a better idea to get foxtel through Telstra on a TV & Internet bundle. That way you're on cable for both.

      That's assuming you're crazy enough to want Foxtel when you have decent cable internet, mind you. About the only reason would be live sport.

      We literally only had Foxtel to provide us with ADSL no one else would or could offer us any internet. We tried for 3 years and after about 6 months of expecting Foxtel to give us the same answer we tried and were successful.

    seriously which idiot would buy nbn or boradbband off foxtel oh right an aussie idiot haha just like losers pay for dodo well they must be a dill big dodo..TPG is king and will rule..telstra is like the afl gaye feral supporters and moronic leadership leading to overpriced crap made by australia by skips with no idea..just get china to run everything theyre already arnt they?
