Profile

BigPond is an Australian Internet service provider and is a subsidiary of Telstra. BigPond is Australia's largest ISP, and as a subsidiary of Telstra, has a majority share of internet penetration in Australia, primarily due to Telstra owning most telephone exchanges. Based in Sydney, BigPond is now a nationwide company, providing access to internet services across the country.

Internet

Cable - BigPond is Australia's largest provider of cable internet, which covers parts of Australia's main cities (Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth, Adelaide and the Gold Coast). Speeds available are 'Standard' speeds (8 Mbit/s down/128kbit/s up) and 'Extreme' speeds (30Mbit/s down/1 Mbit/s up in select areas of Sydney and Melbourne and 17Mbit/s down/256kbit/s up in all other areas).
ADSL - BigPond provides both ADSL and ADSL2+ services where available, with speeds ranging from 256 kbit/s down/64 kbit/s up to 20 Mbit/s down/1 Mbit/s up. The current speeds available on ADSL plans that BigPond offers are 256 kbit/s down/64 kbit/s up, 1.5 Mbit/s down/256 kbit/s up, 8 Mbit/s down/384 kbit/s up and "up to" 20 Mbit/s down/1 Mbit/s up.
Wireless - Through Telstra's Next G network, Bigpond provides the largest wireless network coverage in Australia, claiming to reach up to 99% of the population[1]. Download speeds range from 256 kbit/s to 3.5 Mbit/s in regional and interurban areas, and up to 7 Mbit/s in metropolitan and city areas. Currently the network has a maximum speed capability of 14.4 Mbit/s, yet user side hardware is only capable of 7.2 Mbit/s download. Users report that even 7.2Mbit/s is rare
Telstra Wireless 'Hot Spots' - In almost every Australian Starbucks, Novotel and Hilton hotels, and in such venues as Qantas' Airport Lounges and cafes, BigPond has activated wireless 'hot spots' that people can use if they have a BigPond account or credit card. The connection fee is usually $5 per 10 minutes but prices can vary from each hot spot. Most McDonalds HotSpots are now free to access.
Satellite - Bigpond provides Satellite internet mainly for regional customers who are too far away from the exchange to get ADSL, and can not get Cable. Satellite comes in two forms - 1 way Satellite and 2 way Satellite. From 30 November 2008, BigPond will no longer provide 1 way Satellite. Speeds on BigPond Satellite range from 256 kbit/s down/64 kbit/s up to 800 kbit/s down/128 kbit/s up. Satellite internet is comparatively expensive with other forms of internet such as ADSL or Cable, with pricing ranging from $104.95 to $499.95 per month
Dialup - Dialup plans range from $9.95 to $25.95, with discounts for Telstra customers. Over the last few years BigPond has aggressively moved customers off dialup to a broadband platform, and in 2006 its broadband customers surpassed the amount of dialup customers respectively.

Mobile Web

The Mobile Web refers to the access to wireless data services using a mobile device such as as cell phones, PDAs, and other portable gadgets connected to a mobile telecoms network. Access does not require a desktop computer, nor a fixed landline connection. The service can be to the traditional World Wide Web or to any one of more limited service platforms such as WAP (Wireless Application Protocol), i-Mode and Blackberry services.

While many think that mobile web or mobile internet means access to the traditional internet using a mobile phone or device, this is not the case. The access can be to the traditional internet, but it can be to less than the internet, as typically is with WAP services, or it can be to more than the internet, to data services that do not even exist on the traditional internet, such as SMS text messaging and ringtones. The mobile web is similar to, but not identical to the traditional internet and World Wide Web.

However, Mobile Web access today still suffers from interoperability and usability problems. This is partly due to the small physical size of the screens of mobile devices and partly due to the incompatibility of many mobile devices with not only computer operating systems, but also the format of much of the information available on the Internet.
