- How do I join Grey Power Broadband?
What does ‘Mbps’ mean?
‘Mbps’ stands for ‘megabits per second’ and it measures the download speed of your broadband connection. It is the maximum speed at which you can download data from the internet.
What is BYO Modem?
You can sign up to one of our broadband plans and bring your own modem. Your modem must be suitable for use on Fibre or VDSL/ADSL and must be compatible on Grey Power Electricity’s broadband network. No contract term (only 30 days’ notice will be required as Broadband charges are paid in advance) and technical support is not available. Phone packages are not available.
How long will it take for my broadband to be set up?
If you have requested a Grey Power Electricity modem, it can take 10 days for your modem to arrive. If you are using your own modem, you can be connected within 5 days. We will send you a text message once your broadband has been connected.
Will my electricity pricing change if I sign up for broadband?
No, your electricity rates will remain the same.
Do I need to be an electricity customer to sign up for broadband?
Yes, you need to have your electricity with us to sign up for broadband.
Are your Broadband prices GST inclusive?
Yes, our Broadband rates include GST.
Why is the Lite Fibre Plan only available to customers on the Chorus network?
This plan is only available to customers on the Chorus network as it requires a Chorus Fibre box (ONT: Optical Network Terminal). To view our plans or find out more information, visit our website.
I do not have my electricity with Grey Power Electricity. Can I sign up to Broadband?
You must be a Grey Power Electricity customer, in order to add Broadband to your account.
Can I keep my email address if I switch to Grey Power Broadband?
Yes, you can. The only exception is if your email address is linked to your current Broadband provider (e.g. Spark), in which case there may be an additional cost involved. Please check with your provider to understand if there will be any additional costs.
If you have a Gmail, Outlook, Yahoo or other cloud-based email address there will be no issues at all.
We strongly suggest that you set up an email address with a free provider (such as Gmail, Outlook or Yahoo). This way you will not be locked into your current Broadband provider. When setting up your new email address, you can create an automatic response that lets people know you have changed your email.
- I have a home or medical alarm that is dependent on an analogue phone line. Will my devices still work on a digital phone line?
Do I need to tell my old broadband provider I am leaving?
Yes, you will need to provide your current broadband provider with the required notice. If you need assistance to do so, please contact our Customer Care Team.
This is particularly important if your connection is changing from copper to Fibre to avoid being billed twice.
I am not a Grey Power Member. Can I still get Grey Power Electricity and Broadband?
Grey Power Electricity and Grey Power Broadband services are only available for members of the Grey Power Federation. To join your local Grey Power Association click here. Please note ages and yearly subs differ depending on your location.
Do I need to have my electricity connected with Grey Power Electricity to use Grey Power Broadband?

Which Grey Power Broadband plan is right for me?
We have 4 different Broadband Plans available. The type of plan you choose will depend on your usage and the connection types available at your property.

- Starter: ADSL / VDSL ($81/month): This plan will give you unlimited internet data if your home has a copper connection.
*Lite Fibre (50/10) ($60/month): A fast entry level plan. Suitable for a smaller household that uses the internet for sending emails, reading the news and the occasional Facebook use. *The Lite Fibre plan is only available to customers on the Chorus network. If you BYO Modem, you will pay $60 per month for the Lite Fibre plan. A $68 per month fee includes a $8 per month modem fee and a $60 per month plan fee.
- Everyday Fibre (300 /100) ($92/month): An even quicker plan for households with a few people streaming at the same time. This plan is for you if your household enjoys watching Netflix, listening to music and skyping family members.
- Fibre Pro (max / 500) $108/month): Maximum speed for households who don’t like to wait! If you are a serious gamer, watch a lot of Netflix and have multiple people streaming or playing games online at the same time – this plan is for you!

What is the difference between your Broadband plans?
All our Grey Power Broadband plans provide you with unlimited data. This means we will not limit the amount of internet you use provided you abide by our fair use policy.
