Top Questions – FAQ

Answers to your most commonly asked questions


  • Why would I need a speed pack?

    If you tend to use multiple devices connected to the internet at the same time, performing data-heavy tasks such as gaming, downloading movies and streaming music or TV, then a speed pack may provide a better internet experience for you.

  • How long will it take for an Optus nbn speed pack to be enabled on my service?

    A speed pack is normally activated on your service within 24 hours of purchase.

  • Are speed packs on a contract or can I cancel after a month?

    No, there is no contract for speed packs. You can cancel or reinstate a speed pack at any time, on a monthly basis.

  • How do I check nbn broadband speed at my address?

    You can use our broadband speed checker to test your broadband connection. You should perform the speed test on a computer that’s connected directly to your modem via an Ethernet cable, as using WiFi may not give you an accurate result. Also, your web browser needs to be compatible with Flash to use the speed test.

  • Which modem do I need?

    We supply you with an nbn™-compatible WiFi modem when you purchase an nbn plan from us. You can either set it up yourself using the easy self-install kit or choose professional installation by an Optus technician at an additional cost of just $140.
