Broadband UK vs Australia

Guess which country – UK or Australia? Oh, ok stupid question. :
What’s the max download speed in Australia? Max monthly usage without shaping, for home use (ie not paying corporate rates)?

Does anyone in Australia offer free broadband? Around $38 per month – broadband, international calls, line rental. That doesn’t sound too bad to me. Where do I sign up?

Oh wait… TalkTalk from Carphone Warehouse is only in the U.K.

  1. Closest you get in Australia is VirginMobile, current offer $60 a month, includes free call to landlines and Virgin mobiles in Australia, 4Gb capped broadband, max speed 1.8Mps (actually around 500kps).

    No line rental because there is none, it is all done over their (Optus) mobile network. So you could move you phone and broadband around, subject to power, though it is against the terms of the contract.
