Readers’ Choice: Telstra

Telstra absolutely dominated this category, claiming two-thirds of the vote. It’s certainly not the cheapest option, but it’s fast, reliable and more broadly available than any of its rivals — all key for business travellers.

Editor’s Pick: Vodafone

With its own 4G network rolled out, Vodafone posted some truly impressive speeds at launch. I can imagine some people will still be too scared to go back there, but it’s great to see healthy three-way competition in the broadband space.

Thanks everyone for voting! Keep checking back throughout the week for more winners.
