UDS Internet Connection HELP Guide (AUST)
1. Connecting and choosing a (ISP) Internet Service Provider
We strongly suggest you check out www.whirlpool.net.au an independent forum for broadband users in Australia and they also have a broadband search directory of plans HERE.
It is recommended that you re-check your Internet plan every 2 years to make sure your receiving the fastest and most economical package for your use.
There are only a few major suppliers of ADSL 2+ that actually own the equipment your going to connecting your phone to their box in the local exchange. They are in preference iinet, Internode, Optus and Telsra. Although ADSL 2+ offers speeds 100 times faster than ADSL 256k the further you are away from the exchange the slower it becomes check distance from HERE.
Most ISP’s provide very little in support specially for Macintosh users, they provide only the very basic modems, routers/wireless hardware and seldom provide customers with a completed setup of their connection including screenshot/notes and secure passwords.

An example of this is a customer (CRM) customer relations management database that allows to site offices to connect into the main office in town allowing the site offices to share calendars and contact details.
When running a business it is an advantage to have a Domain Name so that all your advertising, business cards and stationary are pointing to you name not your local ISP because if you change ISP you may have to change your email address and website.
