When you choose an Origin internet plan, there may be additional fees and charges that we need to pass on to you. The charges depend on where you live, the technology we’re connecting, installation requirements and if you live in a new development area (this applies to nbn™ and fibre connections).  

What to expect on your first internet bill

This might include charges like your line connection, set-up charges, modem and delivery fees.
