As we're all aware - and probably sick of hearing -- NBN speeds are a contentious topic. Picking an NBN plan should be a simple equation where we weigh up the speed and data included in a plan versus the price you pay. But it hasn't turned out to be so neat and tidy.

The iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max are almost here - and you can sign up for one with an Australian telco right now. If you live in a regional area or like the peace of mind that comes from being on Australia's largest mobile network, you're going to want to go with a Telstra plan. Here are all the Telstra plans for the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max!
If there's one phone myth that needs to be extinguished, it’s that older Australians don't need a great phone or a high-value phone plan. We used to work on the assumption that seniors almost never used their handsets and recommend only the cheapest phone plans, with no mobile data and long credit expiry. What they really want is a good phone at an affordable price.
The headline of this article is as much a challenge for me as it's a promise to you. Spending my days looking at phone plans, and talking to people about phone plans, I know better than most that everyone needs something slightly different. Price, data, coverage, international calls, data rollover, contracts: the list of variables is long and each complicates the task.
Telstra kicked off its T22 strategy this week launching a bunch of new plans, including an unlimited data behemoth, and introducing its new 'Peace of Mind' data bolt on, designed to save you from excess data usage fees.
The Peace of Mind Data add-on costs $10 per month and is available for all post-paid mobile plans, except the unlimited plan, which doesn't need the option. Once activated, your data service is throttled to 1.5Mbps when you hit your data limits, rather than paying $10 per extra gigabyte of data they use before the end of the month.
Despite all of the hard work going into the NBN rollout, fixed-line internet isn't going to be the best internet solution for every household. Depending on how many people there are at home, and how much you use the internet, you might find that going mobile is an awesome option.
You want to know the secret to saving money on your mobile phone bill? There's no secret: just keep your phone for as long as you can and make sure you're on the right SIM Only phone plan. Here are Australia's ten best plans that cost under $20 a month. (We've also included ten plans with over 10GB of data.)
Telstra executives gathered this week to discuss Telstra2020; a bold vision of the future involving simplified systems, fast 5G and the axing of 8000 jobs. Bold indeed. Intermingled with conversation about its business structure was the news that Telstra will soon make big changes to its mobile phone plans - specifically that it will cut all excess data usage charges.
The match times for World Cup fixtures this year are a little less punishing for Aussie fans then they were four years ago, but if you're like me, you'll still probably watch some of the earlier games on your phone from the cosy comfort of bed.
