TPG has long been recognised as a force in the Australian telco industry. They’re known to offer affordable plans that deliver a top-notch quality connection — so much so that they have garnered awards across their range of services. But does this telco giant offer what you look for in a broadband provider? Let’s find out!

What Makes TPG Stand Out?

Fast, reliable, cost effective communications — these words are what TPG stands by when it comes to defining their range of services. It may seem like a mouthful, but TPG is one telco giant that actually delivers on its promise.

Just last July 2018, the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (or ACCC) reported that TPG is one of the top two broadband providers that deliver the best download speeds during peak hours. This is one major testament to how TPG stays true to their word of offering budget-friendly plans and high-quality services and connections. Where other leading broadband providers fail, TPG easily succeeds — and this is what makes them a cut above the rest.
