Optus is spruiking a new range of migratory NBN plans that purport to offer faster speeds and "Optus perks" to customers upgrading from regular broadband. However, when compared to equivalent NBN plans from rival telcos, the overall value isn't that great.

Signing up for a new NBN plan can feel a bit like a game of Russian roulette. There are so many factors that can affect the speed and quality of your connection, and no one wants to get stuck with a shitty service.

While not all providers are equal, some are doing a bang-up job of delivering high quality NBN. Thanks to the ACCC’s “Measuring Broadband Australia” program – which relies on real world testing data from Australian households – we’ve got a better idea of who they are.

If you're blessed enough to have NBN access in your home but don't want to pay through the nose for it, I have some good news - you don't have to.

It is possible to have a fast, reliable NBN service with unlimited data from providers who don't charge insane premiums or lock you into a contract. A few of them are even having a post-Christmas sale.

We tend to think of the internet as a set-and-forget utility, like electricity, but it doesn’t have to be. If you’re the sort of person who loves chasing credit card balance transfer deals, this will appeal to you.

So, it turns out the NBN isn't the steaming pile of garbage that the tidal wave of news coverage has lead us to believe. Even the ACCC said that the results of its broadband monitoring program were 'better than expected', when it revealed that peak time speeds for the major providers hovered around 90-percent of the maximum plan speeds. Sure, there’s room for improvement, but that's not too shabby.
