Internet service provider Primus Telecom has announced the first national broadband network (NBN) services to become available in Tasmania in July.

The new NBN Fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) plans will begin at $39.95 per month and be available in regional areas starting with Smithton, Midway Point and Scottsdale.

The Australian reports Primus will offer its Max FTTH broadband plan for $44.97 a month for the first six months, after which time, it’ll double to the full price of $89.95. Customers will also need to take 12 or 24-month contracts, which, at such an early stage in the NBN’s development, will be the price early-adopters will be expected to pay.

For that price, users will get 15GB of downloads per month at speeds of up to 25Mbps, the entry-level NBN speed. The deal also includes phone line rental with unlimited mobile, local and national calls.

The plans are not as yet available on the Primus website but are expected to appear before the Tasmanian section of the National Broadband Network is switched on for the first time in July.

The NBN will expand to include another 90,000 premises in Hobart, Launceston, Devonport and Burnie. It is expected to eventually offer data transfer speeds of up to 100Mbps when completed.

Competitors iiNet and Internode are yet to announce their NBN plans or prices.
