When it comes to the NBN, we know that plans and providers are not all equal. Despite standard speed tiers, the performance in our homes varies quite a bit, especially during the evening peak times.

As you've probably heard, the ACCC is trying to counter this by introducing industry guidance that said that providers need to put average evening speeds on their website so that consumers can judge performance alongside price.


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.


Thanks to the dropping price of data, mobile broadband is becoming an increasingly affordable way to stay connected. Whether you want an alternative to an ADSL or NBN broadband connection, a SIM card for a tablet, or a stop gap for a move or a holiday, mobile broadband could be the answer.
