About Cable Broadband

Cable broadband is great for customers who want a faster internet connection with speeds of up to 30Mbps possible in some areas and some providers offer a speed boost where you can pay extra to get speeds up to 100Mbps. Cable broadband is not available in as many places as ADSL and ADSL2+ broadband. Telstra and Optus are the main cable broadband providers in Australia.

When shopping around for cable broadband plans, you will need to decide whether you also want a home phone service. Optus offers customers the choice of bundling their line rental or going 'Naked' and just ordering a broadband plan. If you are interested in pay TV, you may receive a discount by bundling both services together. Installation costs can be higher than ADSL or ADSL2+ services, as a technician will need to connect your home to the cable in the street. You will also need a cable modem. An ADSL modem will not work on a cable connection.
