ANT Communications makes it easy for regional Aussies to get online. Here's what it has to offer.

What you need to know about ANT Communications ADSL plans

Regional Australia doesn't have a whole lot of options when it comes to getting online. Of the few companies providing Internet services to Aussies living outside metropolitan regions, ANT Communications is one of the most prominent, with nearly a decade of experience delivering ADSL from one corner of Australia to the other.

To streamline the process of getting regional Australia online, ANT's ADSL plans are as simple as they come. So long as your premises is connected to an active phone line, you're good to go. And while ANT's ADSL plans don't have as many features as some of its competitors, it does support flexible contract periods, with 24-month, 6-month prepaid and month-to-month options available. Only 24-month contracts spare you the setup fee, though.

What are the different ANT Communications ADSL plans?

Sticking with its focus on simplicity, ANT offers just two different ADSL plans: one with 100GB of data every month and one with no data limit. The maximum Internet speed of each depends on your proximity to your local exchange, as well as the technology the exchange uses. At best, you'll see a theoretical maximum connection speed of 20Mbps with ADSL2+, with older infrastructure only able to offer 8Mbps at best, though you'll get much less in the real world.

If you sign up for the 100GB plan and exceed your monthly limit, you won't be slugged with any excess download charges. Instead, your connection will be shaped, dropping your internet speed to 64kbps/64kbps until the monthly billing period ends.

How much do ANT Communications' ADSL plans cost?

ANT prices its ADSL plans much the same as its competition, charging $49.95 a month for the 100GB plan and $59.95 a month for the unlimited option. 6-month and month-to-month contracts also come with a setup fee of $150, while 24-month contracts will incur a $150 early cancellation fee if you decide to terminate your service before the two years is up.

If you don't have an ADSL-compatible modem, ANT will bundle in a four-port modem router for an extra $129 with any of its plans.
