So you've gone a bit crazy on the old downloads. Don't sweat it, we've all been there - just pick up an
Westnet Data Pack to replenish your monthly broadband quota. It's a bit of extra quota added to your Peak, Off-Peak or Anytime allowance for full-speed access when you want it. Available through
MyAccount . And we promise not to tell anyone. Honest.
Learn more about our data packs.
To get your broadband up and running, you'll need in your home:
An active phone landline so your broadband hardware can connect to the internet. Home Phone line rental is included with all of our ADSL2+ plans. If you do not have an active phone landline, then Westnet can arrange for one to be connected. Connection costs apply - please refer to our Home Phone terms, fees and guarantees.
This is the box that connects you to the internet, via your phone line. We recommend our $0 WiFi modem (for plans on a 24 month contract) because it's easy to set up and works with Fetch and Netphone.
This little gadget plugs into your phone so the internet doesn't drop out when you make phone calls. We'll send you one of these with any modem you purchase from us.
Both uploads and downloads count towards your monthly quota.
Exceed your monthly data limit on an ADSL2+ 250 or ADSL2+ 500 plan? No worries, we'll simply shape your download & upload speeds to 256/256 kbps. You can even add a Data Pack or upgrade your plan at any time.
Off-Net Home 500 has a peak download time of 8am to 2am, and off-peak 2am to 8am.
All ADSL plans are available on either a no contract or 24-month term, which comes with added setup and hardware discounts.
If you end your contract early, the following break fees apply. These fees cover the costs reasonably incurred by Westnet when the contract commenced.
|Plans||0-6 months||7-12 months||13-18 months||19-24 months|
Fair contract guarantee

However, our fair contract guarantee lets you change between plans at any time without the need to break your agreed contract. A plan change fee will apply if you switch to a plan of equal or lesser value.
