Faster rate of 3G growth thanks to lower cost and faster speeds

AU's lack of WiFi hotspots not so much an issue nowadays

An article published on the Sydney Morning Herald today sheds a bright light on the now rapid growth of 3G growth in Australia thanks to more competitive plans with lower pricing and more generous data allowances.

 

All the major carriers including Optus, Telstra and Vodafone offer plans giving upwards of 3GB of usage for as little as 30 bucks a month these days, in turn giving people less of a reason to depend on WiFi hot spots (something that is severely lacking in Australia compared to the likes of America and Europe) and travel on the go with always accessible internet.

Further sign of 3G growth is attested to by the rise in sales of notebooks with embedded 3G. Notebook makers know more Australians are favouring notebooks off the shelf with 3G support inclusive and as such are equipping more models with this feature while costing less.

 

The price for a decent 3G connection with good monthly usage is still up there, but it's clearly heading down to Earth and becoming more easily within reach for many as a better on the go internet solution versus WiFi.
