- Regional focus. Aussie Broadband is a regional-based ISP with a focus on connected remote areas. It has points of presence from Bairnsdale in East Gippsland through to Mt Gambier (SA) and further coverage in Western Victoria.
- Data blocks. If you have a particularly data-heavy month and exceed your limit, Aussie Broadband allows you to "top-up" your data to get you through to the end of the month. Data blocks come in five levels, 10GB, 30GB, 80GB, 250GB and 400GB.
- Mobile plans are not competitive. Although Aussie Broadband's website describes its data offerings as "generous", the maximum amount of data you can get is 3GB by paying $120 per month. This kind of pricing is unheard of in the SIM-only space.
