ABSTRACT
The periodical "Australian Personal Computer" last surveyed the broadband market in June 2003, and reported that most Internet service providers (ISPs) were pushing plans capped with a strict download ceiling. But stiff competition has smashed that ceiling for good. As ISP Telstra Corp. Ltd. caved to pressure and re-introduced an "unlimited" plan for BigPond cable customers. And since broadband is as much about speed as download volume, understanding the way providers structure their plans goes a long way towards getting the best broadband deal.
