It’s a great time to be looking for a broadband plan in Australia
, with fierce competition in full swing as ISPs compete to get your attention and you hard-earned dollars. Once a footnote on ISP web sites, the humble bundle deal now at the forefront. Ain’t competition great?
…And the five ISP bundles featured here are all about the free stuff.
Just what kind of stuff depends on what you’re really looking for in a package. If you’re entertainment-minded, you can turn your attention to the grand battle between Optus, Telstra, and Dodo. They’re battling it out on the streaming TV front and want to give you a device to watch it on.
Or, if you’re the sort of person who loves to sit on the phone for hours and chat to friends – and especially if most of those friends are on mobile phones – you’ll appreciate the bundles from several providers that take all the worry out of both the phone and internet bill in one neat little package for a fixed monthly fee.
Most offerings seem to have become far more focused in recent times, providing sensible solutions at a great price, and acknowledging that with the rise of Netflix, Stan and Foxtel Play, people are using more data than ever before.
Let’s take a look at the current offers that most definitely are hypeworthy:
