Telstra and TPG are Australia's largest internet providers, but they're almost polar opposites. TPG built its reputation as a budget broadband provider. Telstra is anything but cheap. This is reflected in their NBN plans.
After years of waiting, my home has finally been connected to Australia's halfbaked NBN.

Looking for an alternative to the big names in NBN? Do the likes of Telstra, TPG, and Optus get you down? Aussie Broadband and Superloop are two newer providers you should be considering. But which one provides the best bang for buck?
Most people have never heard of Circles.Life - an MVNO operating off Optus' 4G network. But we reckon that's about to change. To ring in Black Friday, it's offering 20GB of data - plus three bonus gigabytes if you go over - for just $18 per month. Crucially, the plan is contract-free so you can cancel at any time. Here are the details!
