We are a business looking to have one provider for our Internet, phone and fax lines.
I am looking for the best deal with call costs, reliability and around 3GB per month allowance. Who would you recommend?
There are a few Internet Service Providers (ISPs) who fit this criteria, so I would recommend calling each for a quote and go for the best overall price.
The internet providers here all allow fax lines; however, others may not, so it's always a good idea to check before signing up to a plan.
Optus has an ADSL2+ plan for $64.94 a month with 120GB (50GB peak, 70GB off peak) and phone line rental included. This plan includes $30 call value to standard local, national, 13/1300 and Australian GSM mobiles.
Call costs after the $30 are reasonable, and you can find out exact costs when you call Optus on 1300 137 897.
iiNet also has a great reputation and can offer a broadband connection, a phone line, the ability to run a fax, and VoIP if you need it. VoIP is a great way of saving costs if you make a lot of phone calls, and iiNet can include this in your broadband and phone bundle for an extra $9.95 a month. Local and national calls are included in this price.
iiNet ADSL2+ bundle plans start from $59.90 a month, which includes 10GB of data (5GB in the peak and 5GB in the off-peak) plus a phone line. Give iiNet a call on 1300 106 571.
iPrimus can offer a similar deal to iiNet, but you will get more data. iPrimus offers 40GB on an ADSL2+ bundle for $59.90 including the phone line. The data is split 20GB in the peak, 20GB in the off-peak. You can also bundle this with a $9.95 VoIP plan from iPrimus. Give iPrimus a call on 1300 137 794.
