Telstra is Australia’s oldest and largest telecommunications company. Their bundles are NBN-ready, so you can sign up for a non-NBN plan, and then switch over when the NBN is available in your area when you need to. Besides ADSL, NBN and home wireless internet services, they provide home phone and mobile services, as well as selling tablets, wearables and accessories. With their broadband plans, Telstra pack a solid range of deals, with flexibility on speed, data cap and contract length. If you're the kind of free spirit who's not ready to commit, you can opt for one of their casual plans, with no lock-in contract. If fast downloads are your speed (pun bloody intended), try one of their 24 month NBN plans with a typical minimum speed of 40Mbps, or go even faster with one of their add-ons.
