Advantages of Bundling Home Phone & Internet with the same provider

Advantages of Bundling Home Phone & Internet with the same provider. Get updated regarding the latest issues regarding ADSL, Cable, VoIP, Mobile & Wireless Broadband.

If you are looking to connect and ADSL or ADSL2+ broadband plan you will need and active home phone service. The only broadband internet connections offered in Australia without an active home phone line are Mobile Broadband Internet, Cable internet, Satellite internet or a Naked DSL connection.

This means for all ADSL and ADSL2+ internet connections you will need to pay a home phone line rental. This is necessary as ADSL broadband internet connections travel along the same copper line as your home phone.  Unless your home phone is connected at the telephone exchange you will not be able to receive a broadband connection.

However, it is not all bad news. Many Australian broadband internet providers offer a discount when you subscribe to a broadband internet and home phone plan with them. This can usually save you about $10 off your monthly cost for both services. Telstra Bigpond, iiNet, Internode, iPrimus, Exetel, Dodo and Optus all offer a discount when bundling your broadband and home phone.
