The NBN party is rolling down my street at the moment so I'm looking at what my options are when it comes to offers and plans. And it's all pretty disappointing.

Aussie Broadband, which was formed through the amalgamation of Wideband Networks and Westvic Broadband, is often mentioned in positive terms by customers saying their service and performance are excellent.
