The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission recently released its fifth report on real-world NBN speed, and the results weren’t too shabby. Download speeds generally increased when compared to the previous quarter, including during peak usage hours of 7pm - 11pm.

A few weeks ago, we reported on a pretty sweet NBN deal from the oddly named Tangerine Telecom. At $69.90 per month, it was one of the cheapest NBN 100 plans we'd seen in a long time - and also one of the fastest.
Welp, it turns out that Tangerine has a bunch of even cheaper NBN options available, with prices starting at under $50! Here are the details.
Much like a chimera, the NBN is a complex beast. It may not breathe fire, but it will certainly give you nightmares. When you sign-up for an NBN plan – whether it's the first time or if you're switching – there are countless decisions to be made. The most important of these is speed.
Contracts kinda suck. While the telco industry is built on the back of two-year commitments, locking yourself into one provider for as long as 24 months never feels great. What if there’s a better deal? What if the service is terrible? What if you decide to abandon technology and live a nomadic life off the grid?
Kogan Internet probably isn't the first brand you think of when it comes to NBN plans - but its latest prices might just change that. The budget-friendly telco has knocked an extra $10 off its NBN 100 plans, bringing the total to just $75.90 a month. The deal also includes a free modem. Here are the details!
Last month the ACCC released its second report on real-world NBN speeds, and the results are good. Well, pretty good; and it's clear that some providers are doing a better job of maintaining average speeds than others.
Good news, everyone! The NBN is slowly, but surely, getting better. According to the ACCC, the average CVC acquired by the providers is on the up, with the national average now at 1.52Mbps per user, an increase of 37% in the fourth quarter of 2017. It seems the providers are finally being shamed into positive changes. Hurray!
Of course, this doesn't mean everyone is having an awesome time surfing the big waves of the internet data stream. In fact, for some the NBN will never be a suitable way to get online.
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.
