Discount broadband plans may finally be affordable

It’s long been accepted wisdom that entry-level broadband plans are rarely worth the money: $30 a month sounds cheap, but if you only have 200MB of downloads to play with you’ll be lucky to keep your systems patched, let alone get anything done. But the situation does appear to be improving. Internode has launched a $34.95 a month plan which includes 5GB of downloads. It’s unlikely to appeal to a serious hard-core geek (especially as it’s a slow 256Kbps service), but it could make it feasible to switch your dial-up-diehard relatives into a speedier always-on world. Any other good discount broadband plans you’ve encountered? Share them in the comments.



    ADSL2+ (24000ish down 1000ish up)

    12gb peak (midday-midnight)
    48gb off peak (midnight-midday)
    INCLUDING phone line rental.

    (if your paying $30 phone rental this is the same $35 price as the deal above, but this is SO MUCH BETTER!)

    I love it when telephony companies cold call me, then hangup when i tell them my deal 🙂
