This Is The Best Telstra Mobile Deal I've Ever Seen

It used to be that Telstra data was silly expensive. The network has undoubtedly the best mobile coverage across the country, but you’d pay a significant premium for that privilege.

This Is The Cheapest iPhone In Australia

So you want a cheap iPhone? You had best take your eyes off the shiny, new iPhone 6s and 6s Plus. Those will cost you a pretty penny for a long while yet. No, instead the cheapest iPhone in Australia’s brick-and-mortar universe right now comes from JB Hi-Fi: $499 for an iPhone 5s.

Vodafone has dropped all the way down from 19.3 to 6.3, while Optus has seen a rise from 5.4 to 8.5 complaints in every 10,000 services in operation.

NBN Co Pulls Up To 970Mbps From Copper Cables, But There's A Huge Catch

We all know that the new plan for the National Broadband Network involves delivering connectivity over copper for the so-called last mile, that’s just something we have to live with. NBN Co is trying to make that all a little easier on us by revealing results from an early trial of G.Fast technology to supercharge copper lines. NBN Co achieved 970Mbps over G.Fast copper, but there’s a massive catch: the cable was 20 metres long.

Telstra Wi-Fi 4G Advanced III: Australian Review

Then, it upgraded its carrier aggregation to three frequency bands, and tripled those data speeds. Telstra’s Wi-Fi 4G Advanced III is the first device that takes full advantage of the company’s latest fastest Category 11 mobile data network, and it promises 600Mbps download speeds. Step aside, NBN. This is how you get the fastest ‘net connection in Australia, right now.
