BigPond cable broadband customers will soon be able to enjoy a speed increase thanks to a nationwide system upgrade.

Bigpond Ultimate Cable customers will be able to achieve download speeds of up to 100Mbps with the network’s extra capacity.

The change will take effect in Perth on November 30 and in Sydney, Adelaide, Melbourne, Gold Coast and Brisbane from December 12.  

“This upgrade provides additional capacity to Telstra’s network and will provide one of the fastest broadband services available in Australia today,” says John Chambers, Telstra director of fixed voice and broadband.

“With speeds of up to a maximum of 100 Mbps, BigPond Ultimate Cable means the whole household can do more things at the same time.

“BigPond customers also enjoy no peak or off peak restrictions and peace of mind that they won’t incur any additional usage charges – as speeds are slowed once the monthly usage allowance is reached.”

BigPond Ultimate Cable can be accessed for $88 a month for 24 months. The bundle includes 200GB monthly data allowance and a home phone.

The offer also includes a wi-fi modem plus free professional installation.

Existing cable customers on the BigPond Turbo and BigPond Elite plans can upgrade to the BigPond Ultimate Cable without the need to sign a new contract.

Customers simply need purchase a BigPond Ultimate Cable self-install wi-fi modem priced at $149.
