Hi, I'm a full time student.
5 people want to rent a house with no internet access, we want to install a internet connection with high speed. We all like to watch movies online, play online games and download, so we really need a large and high speed internet. So which internet do you recommend and how fast internet speed we need. Thank you.
With that much data usage, it sounds like you'll need an unlimited deal. When you sign up for an unlimited broadband plan, you can use as much data as you want and your Internet Service Provider (ISP) will never charge you or slow you down for going over a certain data usage quota. Luckily, there are some great unlimited plans out there from numerous ISPs, and I'll go over them in just a minute.
First, though, with regard to your concern about the speed: the speed of the internet connection you have isn't actually under the control of the ISP you go with. In fact, it's about the distance you are from your telephone exchange. The closer you are, the faster your internet will be.
You should know that with five people online at once, there's a strong likelihood that your internet will slow down depending upon what everyone is doing. If a lot of people are streaming or downloading movies at the same time, your broadband will be slower than if just one person was online. You can help prevent this by conferring with your housemates when you need to make a Skype call, making sure that unnecessary background programs and tabs on everyone's computers are closed, and doing your downloading overnight when no one else will be online.
Having said that, here are some unlimited plans you might be interested in.
If you wanted just broadband because you already have a landline connected, you could try Dodo. Dodo offers an ADSL2+ Unlimited Broadband Plan for $39.90/month. You can call Dodo for more information on 1300 136 793.
You could also get a bundle deal, where you get broadband and phone. Even if you think you're not going to use a landline, this will often end up cheaper, so it's definitely worth looking into. Eftel offers a Duo Unlimited ADSL2+ and Home Phone Plan for $69.95/month. You can call Eftel for more information on 1300 106 571.
