Internet providers

Australian households need broadband Internet connections in order to enjoy streaming video, audio and other new media, and they have a tremendous number of connection choices.

Broadband is the general term for any high-speed, consistent connection, and Australian Internet service providers utilize several major technologies. Cable Internet is a well-known technology that routes Internet connections through a specialized home modem for exceptionally fast, consistent connections in all weather conditions. DSL is another option that works through phone line frequencies, but provides faster connection speeds than dial-up. Satellite TV works through a home satellite dish. Modern satellite connections are fast, consistent and exceptionally reliable.

Modern satellite connections are fast, consistent and exceptionally reliable.


These options aren't all available in every part of Australia. Homes in rural areas typically don't have access to cable, for instance, while ADSL is a much more common option. Satellite Internet offers an appropriate connection for many homes and is a particularly attractive option if you order pay TV through a satellite provider. There are also prepaid broadband options that give you a limited amount of data per month with a shorter contract than traditional Internet service provider.

You'll need to decide on a contract length and make a few assessments regarding your Internet usage habits to select the right plan. In order to choose an affordable option, you will also need to closely compare Internet service providers and their associated costs in your area. You'll need to consider factors such as:

- The amount of time you're planning on staying at your current residence
- Your average monthly Internet usage
- Start-up costs
- Whether or not you want a bundled Internet/pay TV package
- The full costs of your first year of service

Our online tool is the easiest way to find an affordable ISP. Australia buyers can look at their local options and compare start-up costs, monthly costs, data limits and other important information. It's an exceptionally fast way to check the first full year of costs, and because our tool updates constantly, you always get the best possible information regarding your local Internet service providers.

You can see what's available from more than 20 providers, make decisions on what's affordable and what will work best for your household in a matter of seconds. You'll set up a smart, customized policy with fast connection speeds and the lowest possible rate.
