Compare Broadband Plan

Internet Monster can help with any questions that you may have about not only your future home broadband needs, but for those of us that will be left waiting for a while before NBN broadband is finally rolled out nationwide, our team of Internet Brokers can also give the latest advice about your current ADSL, VDSL and cable internet plans.

How do I find the best broadband plans?

While we all continue to anticipate the looming prospect of new home broadband plans that will be provided by the new NBN network being installed across each Australian state, it is still worth taking the time to compare broadband plans to ensure that you are enjoying not only a fast broadband plan in your home but are also taking advantage of one of the many options out there for cheap broadband plans that are still available to your household.

Many homes across the country still make use of the older copper-wired home broadband infrastructure that has been in place for the last couple of decades and the older methods of internet connection such as ADSL, VDSL and other DSL based services which are still a very common way for many homes and businesses to manage wireless internet access.

Whichever Australian State you call home; New South Wales, ACT, Victoria, Queensland, the Northern Territory, Western Australia, South Australia or Tasmania, we can look into the current home broadband plans that are available and ensure that the best internet connection and the cheapest broadband plans that we can find from our partners are then passed on to you.

We also search and compare broadband plans based on what is obtainable based in each city, so whether your nearest metropolis is; Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, Brisbane, Perth, Newcastle, Canberra or the Gold Coast, our dedicated team will scour the information available to us and find you a great deal on fast broadband plans and options that are available via our partners and one that truly fit your needs.

What is ADSL?

Without getting too far into the confusing jargon that is commonplace when you are beginning to compare broadband plans, ADSL stands for Asymmetric Digital Subscriber Line, which is in turn a type of DSL (Digital Subscriber Line), and has been a fairly standard method for most of us to continue using the old copper-wire infrastructure when we access the internet using our conventional modems.

As faster home broadband services became a requirement this system has been up continually tweaked and it is now more usual to see broadband providers offering cable internet plans using the upgraded ADSL+, ADSL2 and ADSL2+ versions as standard.

These more recent improvements still require specific ADSL modems to provide home broadband access and have offered improvements to internet speeds, especially for those users that are nearer to a network exchange.

What is VDSL?

VDSL is similar to ADSL broadband, in that it still uses the established copper wire network we have been using for the last couple of decades to deliver home broadband to consumers and requires dedicated VDSL modems to access the wireless internet.

Where it differs is that it also uses updated fibre networks to access local exchanges and this “part fibre” broadband allows for faster speeds than are currently enjoyed by users of ADSL modems for their home broadband.

Currently advertised as a fast broadband plan amongst the options available to those still using the copper-wired infrastructure it is not always thought of as a cheap broadband plan, but for heavier users and those who enjoy streaming services for their home entertainment, as-well-as business and corporate use, VDSL is still a very attractive option for those looking to compare broadband plans at the moment.

What is DSL?

Any time that you connect to the internet using either one of the ADSL (or newer ADSL+. ADSL2 and ADSL2+ alternatives) or VDSL using one of the supplied cable modems, providing wireless internet to your home to do so, you are utilising a Digital Subscriber Line (DSL).

What this basically means is that any home broadband plan that still uses our old telephone-based infrastructure is typically using DSL to do so, whichever of the broadband provider packages you have.

What is ADSL?

We have become so familiar with the provision and capabilities of wireless internet equipment and accustomed to the everyday use of smartphones, tablets and other devices that it is easy to forget how we got by before this technology changed the world.

Most people are more acquainted with the term WiFi (which many claim actually means Wireless Fidelity, named after the much older acronym HiFi – standing for High Fidelity), and it has certainly become a standard feature in the majority of hotels, shops, restaurants and other properties and buildings that we frequent over the course of a normal day.

What WiFi actually does is use radio waves across a network that includes wireless internet adapters and a router to make sense of the information transmitted between them. In turn, allowing us to make use of cable internet without messy connected wires trailing everywhere.

What is NBN Broadband?

You can already find a lot of information about the rollout of the NBN network as it has been a hot topic, both politically and across most major media outlets.

For a clearer picture about this confusing situation, we suggest that you read through our exhaustive NBN internet guides throughout this site and for an even easier way to learn more about this new way of internet connection make a free call to one of our team here at Internet Monster.

The NBN (or National Broadband Network, to give its full name), is a modern broadband infrastructure that is currently being installed across Australia to replace the older, existing telephony network that is presently used to gain access to the internet.

Basically, the now tiring and old copper wire network that was our standard method of gaining access to the internet is being replaced by the new NBN network, via a mixture of fibre-optics, satellite and fixed-wireless technology.

This has been advertised as capable of much faster network speeds than we have been enjoying when using cable modems across the older ADSL, ADSL2, ADSL2+ network and more traditional methods to provide our home broadband plans.
