The best out of many that I searched through was: <br />
    60. 60. Three<br /><ul><li>Three – Huawei H1550
    61. 61. €19.99 per month
    62. 62. 12 month period
    63. 63. 15GB download allowance
    64. 64. 3.6MB download speed
    65. 65. 384kbps upload speed</li></li></ul><li>My choice<br /> The choice was extremely close between Vodafone 3MB anytime and Perlico Freedom. Both packages have extremely similar offers but the Vodafone package works best, it has a higher download allowance and the higher the better. Also they offer a 10% discount if you have a Vodafone mobile so it works out even cheaper.<br />
    66. 66. Services available in Wollongong<br /><ul><li>There are many broadband service providers in Wollongong, Australia. They have the same availabilities, connection wise, as we do here, but the way they offer their packages and their prices, are quite different. Some of the providers are: Optus, Telstra, TPG.</li></li></ul><li>General Info..<br /> They each provide Cable, Wireless and mobile. Their mobile broadband seems to be more popular than wireless. Some companies don’t even provide the wireless modems like we do here. Their mobile broadband is quite expensive compared to here. The highest GB avalable is 10GB,it costs $119.99 per month and $299.99 to buy the wireless USB card or $399.99 to buy the wireless modem like we use here!!<br />
    67. 67. General Info..<br /> They also provide pre-paid mobile broadband. Optus have a service where you buy the USB card for $99 and recharge it for as much as u like when you need it. E.g $20 gets you 650MB data allowance and expires in 15 days. There are many different price options to choose from. <br />
    68. 68. General Info..<br /> From talking to people who live in this area, the most common thing for them to do is to have cable broadband and also the wireless USB key for when they are using a laptop or are not at home. So from searching through the different options I will now outline the most similar /suitable package to what I picked here. Although there the best option for a desktop computer is cable.. <br />
    69. 69. Telstra<br />Big Pond Turbo Cable<br /><ul><li>50GB data allowance
    70. 70. Downstream is up to 8mbps
    71. 71. Upstream is up to 128kbps
    72. 72. $99.95 per month
    73. 73. 12 month contract
    74. 74. Free anti-virus security
    75. 75. 20MB storage space on BigPond Photos</li>
