Research the best Internet providers and see what they can offer.

WE LIVE in a world that connects us to information via the internet and the speed in which that is executed, is determined by our internet provider.

We all need to 'Google it' from time to time but how do we know what provider to use and if we are on a good deal.

If you're willing to search and compare, you will find the best plan to suit your needs.

TYPES OF INTERNET PLANS:

  • Unlimited Plans - Having an unlimited data plan means you don't have to worry about data limits, excess usage charges or your speed being slowed if you go over.
  • No Contract Plans - No-contract plans are simply a broadband plan without a contract. These plans can also be called a 1-month, or month-to-month contract.
  • Bundle Plans - A home phone and broadband plan, also known as a bundle, is where you rent your landline telephone and fixed line broadband connection through a single provider.
  • Streaming TV Plans - With the introduction of streaming TV services such as Netflix, Stan and Presto the way we use our internet data limit each month is changing.
  • Wi-Fi/Wireless Plans - A Wi-Fi broadband internet connection is where you have a wireless network within your home via a Wi-Fi enabled modem router.

TYPES OF INTERNET CONNECTIONS:

  • NBN - (The National Broadband Network) is a project funded by the Australian Federal Government with the aim of which is to provide every Australian home and business with a faster, more reliable broadband internet connection. What the fibre-optic cables have over the traditional copper wires is that, the fibre-optic cables are far less susceptible to effects of wet weather, lightning, congestion and erosion, providing users with a more stable and reliable connection.
  • ADSL2 - is the most widely available internet connection and gives you access to speeds up to 24Mbps.
  • CABLE BROADBAND - connections are delivered over a dedicated cable from the exchange to your home.
  • NAKED DSL - you don't need to pay for phone line rental and don't have a home phone. Some of the more popular internet providers are: Belong, Foxtel, iPrimus, Mate, iiNet, My Net Fone, TPG, Optus, Telstra and Dodo.

To see what deals are currently being offered by the providers, you can visit their website or alternatively, you can compare plans via websites like: broadbandguide.com.au whistleout.com.au and iselect.com.au.
