At the tail-end of 2015, we published the complete list of Australian suburbs that were earmarked to receive the National Broadband Network in 2016. The list has now been substantially revised to incorporate next year's rollout. Read on to find out which month your area is getting connected!
As the National Broadband Network (NBN) roll out continues, those privileged to have access to the network will be hunting for bargains when it comes to choosing a broadband plan.
Currently there are large number of broadband plans from 69 registered internet service providers (ISPs) along with a number of re-sellers for consideration. We explain how to choose the best plan for you.
When the concept of a national broadband network (NBN) was first floated in 2009, it was meant to deliver super-fast internet to every Australian premise directly. Unfortunately, the reality has been quite different, with hundreds of thousands of households unconnected or tethered to inferior technologies.
Another notable discrepancy is price. It turns out that not all NBN customers are created equal, with some regions paying more for comparable services. We compare how much regional and metro areas pay in NSW, Victoria, Queensland, South Australia, Western Australia, the Northern Territory, Tasmania and the ACT.

You've seen the contract prices, and you might be tempted to sign up and avoid paying upfront for your shiny new iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus — but you could end up paying more for the same phone, calls and data than you need to. Here's how much you can save by buying up-front and choosing the right prepaid plan.

The NBN might not be available everywhere, but if you live in the heart of a major Australian city you're pretty spoiled for choice. Deciding which plan to sign up for can therefore be a bit daunting. If you require lots of data at the cheapest possible price, this roundup of unlimited NBN plans will help to narrow down your selection.
