Australian suppliers of broadband services have not seen a drop-off in subscribers, despite factors such as a slowing economy and ongoing complaints over service pricing and reliability.
"We haven't seen any evidence of people dropping off broadband services," said a spokesperson for Optus. "Our revenue from broadband and Internet usage is continuing to increase."
"The number of customers in our broadband customer group grew by 16 percent to 543,000 in the past year," she added.
Optus sees the continued growth of their broadband services, which include Optus Television and telephony as well as the high speed Internet connection service Optus@Home, as the result of its new bundled product packages, which combine two or more products together at a discounted price.
