A new survey confirms two obvious facts about mobile Internet in Australia: people are using it more, but still think it costs too much. According to the 2008 Worldwide Mobile Data Service Study (which included 2000 Australians in its panel), 61% of Australians have used information services in their phone over the last month, while 49% have visited a web site on their phone. One weird stat from the release: "Sixty-four per cent of Australian respondents were willing to pay more than $10 per month for unlimited mobile data access, up from zero per cent the previous year." The question itself is wishful thinking, since there's absolutely no-one in Australia offering unlimited (mobile phone Internet access at anywhere near that price, unlike the US where it's the market norm). Any telco feel like stepping up? Thought not.
