Beginner's Guide to Broadband

Broadband, or broadband internet, is the term given to high-speed internet services. Due to the continuing increase of internet speeds the definition of ‘broadband’ can be somewhat fluid. These days just about any connection offering 1Mbps or above will qualify in Australia, however the definition of broadband speeds is 256kbps. Broadband comes in a few forms: ADSL, ADSL 2+, Cable, 3G wireless and 4G wireless. There are variations on each of these forms, but we’ll get in to that later.

Higher speeds for your internet means that you can do everything faster when you’re online. Broadband users experience shorter waits when loading web pages, uploading photos to social media platforms like Facebook, downloading files or emails, loading video clips and just about anything else you’d want to do online.

ADSL and ADSL2+ Broadband Plans

In Australia, ADSL comes in two forms; ADSL (aka ADSL1) and ADSL2+. Both these forms of broadband work over a standard copper phone line and differ only in the speeds they deliver. ADSL and ADSL2+ are the most widely offered forms of high-speed broadband of any kind in Australia. ADSL1 was the first iteration of ADSL in Australia and is supported over a wider area than ADSL2+, especially in regional areas where ADSL2+ still may not be available. ADSL1 speeds generally max out at around 8Mbps, making it faster than most wireless networks but still slower than other fixed-line broadband internet like ADSL2+ and Cable. ADSL2+ generally offers advertised speeds of up to 20-24Mbps. There isn’t a huge difference in pricing between ADSL and ADSL2+ broadband plans, so if you can get ADSL2+ in your area , go for it. Start Comparing ADSL / ADSL 2+ Plans

Naked ADSL Broadband Plans

Naked ADSL is a great way to get fast, stable broadband if you don’t have an active phone line. Increasingly, households are beginning to find their home phone landline going unused for anything other than internet. Unlike regular ADSL or ADSL2+, Naked ADSL does not require you to have a valid landline contract with a phone carrier. That means lower monthly fees for the same internet service. Naked ADSL runs at ADSL2+ speeds and tends to be a little more expensive than normal ADSL2+., but cheaper than an ADSL2+ and home phone bundle when you add both prices together - when you factor in what you save by not having an active phone line you can definitely come out ahead with a Naked ADSL plan. Start Comparing Naked ADSL Plans

Cable Broadband Plans

Cable broadband is the fastest and most reliable form of broadband internet. Cable is so named because it runs over optical fibre cable, capable of literally sending information at near light-speeds. Cable Broadband generally offers advertised speeds of up to 30Mbps, but recently that number has jumped to a lightning-fast 100Mbps with some new offers in capital cities from Telstra and Optus. Cable is by far and away the most impressive form of broadband internet due to the amazing speeds that are possible where large movie files can be downloaded in minutes. That being said, it’s also the most difficult to get with a limited footprint in Australia as it hard to build (hence the government stepping in the National Broadband Network to build cable connections to all homes in the next 5 years). Right now, Cable broadband is certainly not available everywhere. If you do live in a cable broadband supported area then you have the limited choice of going with either Optus or Telstra with your connection. No other broadband internet service providers (ISPs) in Australia offer the Cable service. Start Comparing Cable Broadband Plans

Mobile / Wireless / 3G Broadband Plans

The only form of mobile / wireless broadband available in Australia is 3G and variants thereof. 2G is not fast enough to be considered broadband and 4G has unfortunately not yet reached our shores. Due to its wireless nature, 3G is the favoured form of broadband for portable devices. It is most commonly used by smartphones and portable USB modems. The fastest form of 3G in Australia right now is 3G HSDPA (sometimes referred to as 3.5G). Telstra, Optus, Vodafone and Three all support 3G HSDPA. Telstra’s HSDPA network is called NextG and is the fastest available in Australia. Where Optus, Vodafone and Three are all limited to speeds of around 8Mbps and below, Telstra now offers a 20Mbps USB modem. This is easily Australia’s fastest mobile broadband deal.

Broadband Internet Service Providers

Almost every internet service provider (ISP) in Australia offers broadband, with the exception of a few who limit themselves to some mobile services. Australia’s three largest ISPs are Telstra Bigpond, Optus and iiNet and they control most of the market. However, there are plenty of smaller companies to choose from. Australia currently has over 200 internet service providers, most of which only operate within very small areas. Just about every Australian broadband ISP offers ADSL and ADSL2+. With so much competition it’s a good idea to compare plans before deciding on a subscription. Not doing so could leave you stuck with a plan that doesn’t best suit your needs for the next 12 or more months. Start Browsing Broadband Providers

Unlimited Data Plans

Although very common overseas, and even available on many smartphone and cell phone plans in the USA as well landline internet, Australian ISPs rarely offered unlimited broadband data plans. ISPs such as AAPT have previously offered an unlimited plan although most of these offers have been removed from the market. As we come into an NBN world, it is likely that this situation changes and that the unlimited plans that we see in the market are linked to unlimited or un-metered usage of content with a specific provider as more and more bandwidth hungry video on demand services spring up. You can still find plans that are 500GB per month so that should be plenty for the everyday user and family.
