    Personally, I think its a bit expensive seeing as in America you could get Unlimited data for roughly $33 Australian.

    It seems America is always cheaper on stuff like this.

    Just wait, we are heading your way soon and you will hardly be able to tell the difference.:(

    Just a few months ago our leader talks of making the Internet available for everyone in the USA no matter if you are rich or poor. Yesterday our leader seems to be against the Internet and declares that all this "information" is dangerous, especially if the "information" does not match his agenda.:confused:

    It sounds like he will try to make the Internet a government utility so he can control it! He has already put a socialist friend in control of the FCC, so . . . . . . :eek:

    This is the highest current available speed in my area. And we are not rural. It costs AU$70 /month for 12GB

    I hate australia's broadband :(

    Yeah same here with this bloody internet filter Rudd's trying to introduce. If someone wants to Google big black d***s then it's their own buisness.
    Also they think it's going to 'protect' children. Like searching b***s is going to scar them for life. :rolleyes:

    I have visited MacRumors regularly since I bought an iPod Touch in 2007 and an iPhone and MacBookPro in 2009, but this is my first post. :)

    I am a little annoyed that Telstra have announced an iPad data plan that will cost $20 for 1Gb when their $20 data plan for the iPhone (and other 3G mobiles) is 500Mb only.
    I currently have the $10 200Mb iPhone data plan that I rarely use more than half of.
    If I buy a data plan for the iPad, I doubt my combined (iPad & iPhone) data usage would hit 200Mb/month, but it would cost me $30.
    It would be nice if Telstra offered a shared 3G data plan for both the iPad and the iPhone (or other 3G mobile).
    Although that may reduce their income a little, I'm sure it would attract other network subscribers to their NextG network.

    Well this is what he actually said;
    How you got from that to what you posted is absolutely beyond me. I think you've ironically proven his point.


    As far as the telstra tariffs I'm actually quite impressed. Was one of the things that made me decide to pull the trigger. Ordered on the weekend. The $30 sounds perfect to me :). To be honest I'm happy that we got an a la carte method rather than having to sign up for a 2 year plan....

    They're actually reasonable prices for a Telstra service. I was expecting to $59.95 for 500mb of data on a 24mnth contract with $1.50per mb excess the way they normally charge
