The article offers information on some of the best broadband plans offered by Internet services providers (ISP) in Australia. In the unbundled space, netXP's ELight plan offers a decent 5-gigabyte of space with a decent termination fee, although those who like their after-hours downloads may be drawn to Exetel's TELA plan, which offers a 48-gigabyte of off-peak data. For plans below $45, AuNix offers a shorter contract term. For those who want speed and data at the price of under $60 should consider SuperNerd's ADSL2+35GB plan.
