I know telstra has great coverage but i wish they would come near to price matching optus $55 for 80gb. Im in rural nsw and i am greatful that we now have a telstra tower but u can't just change providers
Optus and Vodophone are cheaper than Telstra but the only way they can do this is even in areas where there network is available not building enough capacity into the network to meet customer demand. I live in an inner city suburb and were I live Optus phone only connects at 3G and there is so much congestion that it is difficult to even browse let alone stream videos. Only last year I had no problems with the Optus network but now that they are offering such huge amounts of data on there new plans the network is always congested. The other carriers have increased the data allowance of there customers without first building extra capacity into there network to meet the increased demand.
