The average Australian household typically has 2 to 3 members, while a large family is defined as a couple with 4 or more children. If all of the members of a large family will be using the internet at the same time, a faster NBN plan with unlimited data allowance is needed. NBN Co recommends WiFi broadband plans under the NBN 100 speed tier in such a scenario.
Using a broadband bandwidth calculator, a household with 6 internet users and 10 connected devices will need an internet plan with a speed ranging from 82 Mbps to 102 Mbps. Below are the top 4 WiFi broadband plans for big households.
