So so happy with our new internet provider.
It’s super fast, handles the kids activities with NO lagging, connection was easier than easy and customer service is prompt and spot on
I never thought it would be this easy...
You can always expect delays or hiccups when signing up for interwebz. Well at least for me!
I signed up with this service to ensure my Mother could work from home without hassle.
I prepared myself for the to-ing and fro-ing only to be surprised that it was done perfectly the first time.
Now, my mother has her other son back in the house all the time, so she's never alone.
This product brings families together, or perhaps just my brother to a high speed internet connection like a moth to the flame. But let's go with the former!
This was the ep...itome of plug and play. It was so simple that I felt I was doing someting wrong. But no, It just worked. I truly and utterly recommned this company, it is clear from my interaction that they know what they are doing.
Different to others
I was looking to change provider's for a while(fttp). I found Launtel on product Review and went through the process and signed up. They are different because they are pay as you go you can even pause your service if you go away or just can't afford for a while. I'm on 50/20 $2.08 per day at sign up was on special. So far service has been very good. Ping 34ms down 45 up 18 on wifi haven't tested on ethernal cable. I had been with My Republic on nbn for over 2 years before there service became hopeless.
Best ISP in OZ

The best ISP in Australia
have been using Launtel for a week so far. Speed is normally >80% of peak advertised speed. No dropouts so far. I love the flexibility of speed and suspension of service at no cost provided by Launtel. All ISP's should be doing this.

Launtel puts faith back into Internet Satisfaction
I found out about Launtel through another service provider and when I contacted them they offered me 7 days free trail. Connected within 7 mins of contacting them, Stella service from their friendly staff, all questions were answered and cannot fault them in any way ! Launtel should be your first choice for a reliable Internet service . Providers promise the world but never deliver, Launtel is the first ISP that delivers on everything they say.
They make it too easy
Excellent customer service, and absolutely pain-free setup. Also highly knowledgeable, and will go to great lengths to help debug any connection/speed issues you may be facing. Best ISP I have been with to date.
Amazing. I have no words for the brilliant service I have received. After having the most minimal service in over 3 years I thought I would try one more time. I registered a request on the weekend and was answered within 30 minutes. I then had Jules contact me late one evening and what she do for me no other provider has been able to achieve ever! I work from home and rely heavily on internet. Within 12 hours Jules had solved the issue and then talked me through everything I had to do. Nothing was a problem and my internet speed is running at 97mbps at high traffic times. Thank you for everything Jules. You need a pay rise. Indebted to you for changing our lives.
Excellent customer service
Currently on the free trial having churned from Superloop, thought I’d give Launtel a try after reading the reviews here. Churning took about 5 hours, I queried this via Facebook then 10 minutes later I was on. I was on the 100/40 plan which I getting over 100Mbps. Decided to switch over to the 50/20 plan to see if this plan suited our family but switching to the new plan took 5 days as Vocus manually changes the plans. Looking forward when the Chatswood NSW POI is linked directly with Launtel. Was told for my situation that if there were any p...lan changes to allow for a day for it to be processed by Vocus. I’m now on the 50/20 plan and getting over 50Mbps.There was a major outage with Vocus last week and was kept updated by Launtel via its Facebook page. Whilst I’ve had some hiccups during my trial Launtel has always responded to my queries and have bent over backwards to get things resolved. Superloop has an Australian support team but always difficult to get hold of them and when there was an outage, Superloop could see no problems at their end or blame NBN which doesn’t help my situation. I just want things fixed. Launtel’s customer service and support is the best I’ve come across. I’ve been with TPG ADSL, Optus cable and Superloop NBN. If you have a problem Launtel has live chat, Facebook and Messenger. Launtel sent me a messenger chat at 11pm at night asking if my problems have been resolved. Which ISP does that! Well done Launtel, I’ll be staying with you.

Fantastic customer service.
I live in Perth and had been with Kogan but was having problems with my NBN connection and I was unable to contact Kogan at all being left waiting 3 times for over an hour each time with no one answering.
So I was looking to change and used the chat feature on the website Launtel has to contact them and got a response within a minute! Liam and James helped me set up an account with them and helped troubleshoot the issue I had been having with my connection.
The customer service I got from Launtel was fantastic and I now have my NBN running smoothly with Launtel. All my dealings with the folks at Launtel has been fantastic so far and I encourage everyone who is looking to connect to the NBN to give Launtel a go.
Way better than my previous service providers like MyRepublic and Exetel. Super responsive, setup over the weekend within 24 hours, one outage which they kept regular ETAs. Love the flexibility of the plans. I wish them every success. Great Aussie business,
Excellent support with setup. Very happy with service
We have just setup our NBN service here on Bellarine Peninsula in Victoria. Launtel talked us through an initial problem with our purchased modem and now all running smoothly with no issues of speed. Can’t fault their customer service. Competitive daily rate is great for us.
Free trial period and installation. Amazing.
Really happy with the experience so far. I was wondering why they hadn't charged me yet, I didn't realise there was a free trial. The installation was free, and the daily rate is really good. Amazing service, thank you!!
The option to change DL daily is great
Very reliable. No drop outs experienced.
Great in that changes to plan speed only take 5-10 minutes (Understand this is not the case for all locations). Great to deal with a local business.
This is how you do customer service!
Initial connection was simple after changing from another provider. Really enjoy using the pause feature Had an issue after changing to a static IP, but this was resolved by Damian after a bit of troubleshooting. No reading from set responses here. So nice to have a company that sticks with an issue to try and get it resolved. Highly recommend these guys.
Simply the Best ISP
Simply the best ISP I've had to deal with and so thrilled to have found them. Service was up and running in no time with a free trial. Had some initial issues with NBN and Launtel tech support got this sorted promptly, and re-instated the free trial as I hadn't been able to use it until the NBN connection was fixed. The best thing is that I can pause the service when it's not needed, which is perfect as I alternate between home and our weekender. Would highly recommended Launtel to anyone looking for a flexible, reliable and responsive service. I like that they are a local Tassie small business too.
Terrible customer service
Put in an application for a FTTP residence. Received a response after 2 days, and replied to the email (as requested). Nil response to that after 4 days, so I sent another reply. No response received ever.
Terrible customer service, it's a shame considering the other reviews.
The best ISP
I’ve been ISP hopping for about 2 years at one point I took advantage of Launtel’s free trial and it was incredible connected in minutes along side my existing ISP enabling me to hop to another. After several more ISP hops I’m with Launtel to stay so reliable fast as they say it is no ISP comes close I’ve tried them all.

Extremely flexible pricing model, fast and consistent service
As a migrant starting a new life in Sydney, I was confused with all the contracts, fees and unwanted bundles that other Telcos offered. I was unsure which one to pick and how to avoid unsolicited extra costs, but now I'm absolutely satisfied with my choice that is Launtel. Their business model is unique, extremely flexible and suits all my needs, their support is speedy, relevant and helpful. Highly recommended.
Questions & Answers
Hi Launtel, what's the NBN connectivity in Darwin?
Hi Yakub, Darwin is one of our directly connected areas so we can provision services quickly etc.
However we don't have any peering in Darwin (very few providers do) and instead backhaul it to Sydney first. This is not an issue for most people because 90% of Australian content comes from Sydney anyway. However if you are talking to a server in Darwin (like your office), the latency would be high.
The other thing to watch is that you should be careful doing speedtests over wifi in Darwin unless you know the packet loss is really low due to the high latency to Sydney.
We have access to Darwin through the Vocus network.
The technology type depends on your address, if you pop your address into: residential.launtel.net.au/residential/
You can start a 7 day free trial.
I'm after your confirmation modem settings so I can put them in my own modem
I got told my bill will be monthly or I can change it on my account to monthly can't see how you can do it
We don't bill monthly however you can change your recharge amount to be monthly.
In the portal at under "My Account" and then "Payment Details" you can set an auto recharge amount and a minimum balance.
That way if you put $65 in the account and tell it the minimum balance is $3 it will recharge automatically every month.
