Dodo will help school-aged children in low-income households access online education services as part of a new offer in partnership with nbn.

Offered as part of nbn’s COVID-19 Education Assistance Package, eligible customers will receive a monthly discount of $30 off Dodo’s nbn25 home broadband plan with 101GB of included data – for a total cost of $30 per month for the first 6 months (Plan reverts to normal monthly cost of $60 per month after the first six months, for a minimum total cost of $540 + $24.90 postage and handling over 12 months). Additionally, in response to increased broadband demand due to COVID-19, Dodo has temporarily increased the included data on 101GB plans to be unlimited until 30 June 2020. After the unlimited data offer has ended, broadband speeds will be shaped once the 101GB data allocation has been used.

“This is a great opportunity for families with kids at home to get connected to the nbn so they can access online education,” said Dodo chief executive Antony de Jong. “The Education Assistance Package is made for families on a budget that have not yet connected to the nbn – we hope that this $30 monthly discount will help them keep their kids connected while they wait for schools to get back to normal.” More details are available online at www.dodo.com/customerupdate

Dodo also offers a mobile plan with unlimited talk and text for just $5 a month with no lock-in contract.

Dodo has set up a dedicated number for customers seeking to access the nbn Education Assistance package. To find out if you’re eligible, call our dedicated team on 1300 124 516.

The offer is available to low-income households (who qualify for Family Tax Benefit Part A/B) with school-aged children who have not yet connected to the nbn. Dodo customers currently connected to ADSL are eligible for the offer as they migrate their broadband connection to the nbn.
