Is high-speed home Internet access available? How long does it typically take to install it after arrival?

Yes, ADSL2 is available, with the national broadband network (NBN) being rolled out now. We noticed no difference between ADSL and NBN speeds. Cost is probably similar to what you'd pay back home ($A70/month or so). TPG and Telstra are two major companies, there is little difference in the service. We go with TPG because they offer unlimited data. Installation can take up to two weeks. - Jul 18, 2017
