We've got our rental sorted in Lockleys which is a cable area so I've been looking at the best option for TV and Broadband.
As far as TV goes, I want to start basic, so may well end up buying the lowest cost digi box I can to plug into the UK TV (maybe go Foxtel later if we want it), however, broadband wise I want something reliable as we use it a lot - and it's our main way of speaking to folks back in the UK (skype, email, etc). Don't think we need landline telephone as we seem to be coping with two pay as you go mobiles at the moment.
The house still has the cable connection and I assume a phone line too. Adam internet seem to get some poor reviews (and not sure about the Fetch TV option) - yet Optus seem quite pricey.
Just wondered if anyone found a happy balance...........
