Joseph Hanlon, Publisher of WhistleOut, commented on how consumer telco products had evolved over the last 12 months, and the ongoing competitiveness of the marketplace: “Some of the biggest changes we’ve seen throughout the year have been in the home internet market. NBN is now the dominant connection type, with carriers and consumers gravitating towards Standard Plus (NBN50) speeds. At the same time, mobile broadband has become a more attractive proposition for lots of people, and interest in home wireless broadband has grown.

“Data allocation is a key decision making factor for Australians when choosing a mobile plan, and inclusions have increased across the board without pushing prices up. In the mobile phone space Australia may be dominated by Apple and Samsung, but challenger brands have launched a number of excellent phones that are highly competitive and should make consumers think twice before choosing which device to go with.

“Congratulations to the winners of the 2019 WhistleOut Awards for consistently offering Australians both quality and value.”
