Sumo internet plans
While Sumo might be well known for their electricity and gas plans, Sumo also retails as an ISP, offering NBN plans - NBN25, NBN50, and NBN100 - to customers in Australia. All Sumo NBN plans come with unlimited data, and the choice of either a month-to-month, 12-month, or 24-month contract. When choosing a Sumo NBN plan, it’s important to remember that different contract lengths come with different one-off activation fees:
- No contract: $75 activation
- 12-month contract: $40 activation
- 24-month contract: $0 activation + free modem
In addition, you can choose to bring your own NBN-compatible modem when switching to a Sumo NBN plan or purchase a Netcomm modem through Sumo for a one-off fee of $149. However, if you choose to sign up for a 24-month NBN contract, your modem will be supplied free of charge (+$10 delivery fee).
