Broadband

Australia’s broadband was called one of the slowest and most expensive in the world by a 2007 OECD report (ranking the 30 industrialised OECD member countries). Australia rated second last, beaten by the likes of Poland, Belgium and Mexico. Ouch. Having said that, we have Big Plans afoot to keep up with the Joneses with the national rollout of our brand spanking new National Broadband Network already underway (www.nbnco.com.au) and due for completion, well, some time, apparently.

If you need to get wired in Bondi Beach, you can now enjoy free WiFi down at the beach and Bondi Park (conditions and time limits apply) or head here for a handful of other options:

 

Internet kiosks

World Sky Internet

4B/78 Campbell Pde

(in that weird arcade, up on the first floor)

 

Civic Video Internet

155 Curlewis St

 

Ezy Mart City Convenience

Shop 8/180 Campbell Parade

 

Free wi-fi cafes

Blue Orange

Free power at your table

In a bold new move (for Australia anyway) Miss Chu, in the middle of town, has installed free iphone chargers at every table for iphones and Macs. Not just power points mind you, the actual charger, hanging down from the roof. So, chow down on some of Sydney’s finest dumplings, wash them down with your Lychee Cucumber Mint Vodka Crushie (mmm) and power back up at the same time. Brillo.
