On an NBN 50 plan, prices can range from $65 per month to $120 - a price difference of $55.

Over the course of one year, that equates to an extra $660 all for the same speed.

Telstra, Foxtel, iPrimus, Optus, Dodo and TPG scored lowest for speed and reliability, bill and cost clarity and overall customer satisfaction.

Meanwhile, the cheapest NBN 50 plans were Flip, SpinTel, MyRepublic and Tangerine.

Australian-owned MATE was the only provider to get a five-star rating for speed, service and price.
