Dodo has finally revealed its National Broadband Network (NBN) pricing, making it the cheapest NBN retail service provider (RSP) by a very slim margin, and has included an "unlimited" plan for less than AU$60 per month.

Announced on Wednesday, the M2-owned telco has services starting at AU$29.90 for 10GB of data (5MB on peak and 5MB off peak) on line speeds of 12/1Mbps, and goes up to AU$89.90 for 2TB of data (1TB on peak and 1TB off peak) on 100/40Mbps. Its "unlimited" offering is for the 12/1Mbps line speed, and is available for AU$59.90. The plans do not include the connection fee, ongoing line rental, and cost of the modem. Dodo has also said that for an extra AU$15 per month, end users can extend the off-peak data on any of its plans to also be unlimited.

In March last year, ZDNet made a comparison chart of all the announced NBN pricings. Dodo's plans make it the cheapest NBN provider, though with 5GB less download than SkyMesh's similar offering. Since that time, TPG has entered the market with an unlimited NBN plan of its own, that Dodo is now matching.

"Whilst the NBN is capable of delivering fast internet to the home, it is our job to make sure that it can be delivered to Australians at a cheap price," Boris Rozenvasser, consumer director at M2, said in a statement.

"It is with this in mind that we have launched what we believe to be some of the most aggressive plans in the market."

The announcement follows those of its competitors Exetel from more than two years ago (though its plans have since been updated), Internode in July 2011, iiNet in September 2011, Optus in November 2011, and Telstra in February last year.

Dodo was bought by M2 Telecommunications in March this year for AU$203.9 million.
