The Commonwealth Bank has made history as Australia's first ever major bank to offer a mortgage rate of less than two per cent.

On Wednesday morning, however, the Commonwealth Bank - Australia's biggest home lender - announced it would slash by one percentage point its fixed rate for owner occupiers paying off principal and interest - taking its Wealth Package loan rate down to 1.99 per cent.

'This is CBA's lowest ever advertised home loan rate,' it said.
