Telstra

As Australia’s oldest, largest and most experienced communications company, Telstra has been setting the standard that others follow for decades.

They’ve also innovated with mobile services, having the largest population coverage in Australia and the greatest reach of high-speed 4G mobile services. If you need to communicate in any way, Telstra’s got a product that’ll make life easier for you.

Telstra Broadband

Telstra TV is just one of the many products and services that the telco offers — perfect for avid fans of all things entertainment. While having a reliable source of movies and shows is exciting, it still all comes down to having a broadband connection that is fast and efficient.

In this area, Telstra is still on top of the game. To enjoy streaming, you need a really speedy connection with lots of data. As long as the internet is fast — and the price is right — everything else just falls into place.
