We’re a broadband backwater

“Australia is lagging behind the rest of the developed world as far as the spread of broadband goes, with only 13 percent penetration expected by the end of 2008, the technology research firm IDC says in a study. “

Well Telstra is trying to do something about that, with it’s new pricing plans starting at $29.95 for broadband. Except, as with everything to do with Telstra, there’s always a catch. $29.95 only gets you 256k/64k speeds – which barely qualifies as broadband, and a cap of 200 meg of data a month – which is nothing. I’d go through that in a few days. Telstra almost owns up, they describe it as ‘Light use, or exploring ADSL’.
