Communication in Australia
For most migrants, Australia is a long way from home! Staying in touch with loved ones is easier than every through the internet and phone. Depending on your country of origin, phone cards and mobile phone plans allow you to communicate internationally at reasonable rates. While Internet service is currently considered slower and more expensive than in most other first world countries, the new national broadband network, set to roll out across the country in 2013, should improve online connectivity substantially.
