Telstra has been running wild with some fantastic deals recently. Last week the telco slashed $50 per month off of its Extra Large mobile plan. Today, Telstra has reduced both of its NBN 250 and NBN 1000 plans by $40 per month, for the first six months you’re on these internet plan. That means you can save $240 over this half-year discount period.

Both plans will also get you three months of standard Binge for free, and you won’t have to pay the $99 connection fee if you sign up for these plans online. Both of these internet plan deals are available until March 29.

These plans are also contract free, however if you leave within your first months with Telstra you’ll have to pay out a modem fee. This fee is equal to the number of months remaining in your two year term multiplied by $9. That means if you leave the moment this six month discount period ends, you’ll have to fork out $162.

If you plan on upgrading to either of these plans, make sure your home has the correct NBN connection available first. At the moment only NBN 250 and NBN 1000 are only supported by a fibre to the premises (FTTP) or hybrid fibre-coaxial (HFC) connections.
